Around the Town By Emma Drissen Happy New Year! We all seem to have made it into the new year with very few problems. What a New Year's Eve celebration Vermillion had to welcome the new millennium! The Coyote Student Center and the DakotaDome were really jumping! Estimates of attendance was around 1,400. We almost tripled last year's attendance.
It was so wonderful to see so many families celebrating with their children. We predict next year to be even bigger and better yet! Thank you to all volunteers for your time, energy and dedication and to Rick Haught, the Coyote Student Center and DakotaDome staff.
We thank all the corporate sponsors who helped fund the evening: Community First State Bank, CorTrust Bank, First Dakota National Bank, First National Bank in Vermillion, First National Bank-South Dakota in Yankton, Gateway, Hy-Vee, Norwest Bank and Polaris Industries.
Also, thank you to Clay County and the city of Vermillion for the spectacular fireworks show and thank you to the community for your continued support of celebrating Vermillion not only on New Year's Eve, but every day.
Have a great week!
