Sports Day Uncertainty Due to Covid


Friends gathered in front of Gerri Aughenbaugh’s home to pay tribute to her as she recently lost her battle with Leukemia while in Arizona. The Iroquois fire truck led the drive by while 25 plus cars lined up to say goodbye. Gerri was a big asset to our community and will be missed.

Lois Rounds, a former Iroquois resident, passed away at Sioux Falls Dougherty Hospice House in Sioux Falls last week. A private immediate family service was held at Welters Funeral Home in Huron on Saturday. Several cousins and sister-in-law followed the family to the burial at Iroquois Maplewood Cemetery on a beautiful Saturday, and while social distancing showed their respect to Lois and the family at the cemetery.

Plans at this time are uncertain for the annual Iroquois Sports Day in Iroquois. This event is usually held the third week in July. Something will be held at some point this summer/fall. Will keep you posted as we see how things go with Covid-19. We hope people continue to be safe from this virus.
