Sweet Summertime.

 – By

SUMMER. IS. HERE. I was talking on the radio last week about all of the wonderful summer options we have right here in our backyard in Hand County…. we have SO MANY! Here are a few that I featured:

Lake Louise is a favorite for sure. Lake Louise is a gem in our community. We need to make sure to remember to tell folks about that gem and everything that special place has to offer. One of the best beaches in South Dakota, a great campground for tents, campers, and cabins, some neat parks, fishing, hiking, and so much more.

The parks. Miller is truly blessed with some of the best parks. From Crystal Park, the Baseball Park, and the Kiwanis park of folks enjoying events, picnics, and everything else. Hats off to the city employees who do a great job of maintaining the parks and taking care of those places.  

The sports. Golf, baseball, softball, and soccer. We have more sports in our community than most communities our size. Kids of all ages play sports here. I am impressed with the number of small children that are participating in every sport and the facilities that we have to offer these sports are so well kept.

The pool. Our swimming pool is one of a kind. Between the slide, the baby pool and the diving board there is truly something for everyone at the Miller City Pool. 

The Racetrack. Saturday night is a big deal at Miller Central Speedway. It’s a community of its own.

Midway Drive In. The movies aren’t the only thing that folks love about the Drive In. A lot of people talk about how much they love the concession stand and the folks that run the drive in. So many memories are made for all generations.

The views. We have some BEAUTIFUL sunrises and sunsets in Hand County. I urge everyone to take advantage of that time of day and get out and take it in.

This list goes on and on. The 4th of July, food, summer reading program, and so many more wonderful events. Get out and see everything that Hand County has to offer. If you want to find out what’s going on, keep reading your Miller Press and go to our website www.millersd.org for the 2022 Summer Recreation Guide and calendar of events.

We take for granted what we have to do right in our own backyard. Grab your friends and go experience everything we have to offer. We get to live in the greatest county in South Dakota and experience these wonderful places and events. Go make some Summer memories right here in Hand County.

 Enjoy your summer, Hand County… it goes way too fast.
