Huron Friend-Raising Event
The Coffee Tree coffee shop was the site of an April 16 friend-raiser in Huron, hosted by Joanne Groves, a member of South Dakota Voices for Children's Board of Directors, and Rhonda Kludt, a friend of Voices. Voices' executive director presented a brief program that drew the attention of those who attended.
