PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The northwest South Dakota community of Lemmon has been chosen to be the state’s capital for a day at the end of the month.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard says Lemmon will step in for Pierre Aug. 31 as part of his Capital for a Day program.

Daugaard has said the program allows him to get better acquainted with residents and issues affecting their area.

Activities planned include a walk on main street, business tours and a social event for the community. Leaders will discuss the needs of the city with Daugaard during a roundtable.

Lemmon Mayor Neal Pinnow says the community is often regarded as a statewide leader in rural community development and is pleased with the opportunity to share its “story and accomplishments” with Daugaard and members of his cabinet.
