Tour de Kota is just a month away on Thursday, June 9 and we�ve got fun plans in store for both the riders and the Vermillion community!  We�ve changed our Tour de Kota campsite location at USD to the North Complex grounds just north of Cherry Street between N. University and Plum Streets. A variety of food vendors will be set up beginning the morning of June 9 and continuing through the evening.  �Poker Alice� will entertain the crowd with live music in the evening.  The following morning will start bright and early with the Vermillion Lions Club serving pancakes and sausage to the riders and the public.  Spread the word, bring your friends and family, and join us for a fun event of great food, entertainment, and socializing.  What a great way to kick off the summer!!

VCDC Annual Golf Social will be June 28!  To beat the heat, the 2011 Vermillion Area Chamber & Development Company Annual Golf Social will be June 28 this year at The Bluffs Golf Course instead of July as in previous years.  The 4-Person Best Ball Scramble Golf Tournament will begin with team sign-in and pictures at 11:45 a.m. and the open format shot gun start is at 1 p.m.  The buffet dinner will be served at 6 p.m. followed by the golf awards and door prizes.  Please call the VCDC office at 624-5571 or email to register your team, be a hole sponsor, or donate a pin or door prize.  Please register soon!
