Sharples wins 'early bird' prize The Wakonda Community Club began several years ago to start their membership drive in December. Everyone who joined the club for 2003 prior to the Santa/Appreciation Day was eligible for a prize offered by the club. Doug Sharples was this year's winner.
Each year the club expends several thousand dollars in promoting and supporting this town, the community, and the school; especially students and their activities. Dues are $5 per individual and may be paid at the bank.
