A few things to check out:
1.Pie Day. On December 12, celebrate the 18th Annual AG Pie Day with a free piece of pie, coffee and ice cream on the first floor of the Capitol Building. Volunteers will be serving pie from 11 am to 3 pm. While you are at the Capitol, tour three floors of gorgeous trees on display.
2.Our very own, Andrew Ogan, snapped a couple pictures that are featured on southdakotamagazine.com: http://www.southdakotamagazine.com/capitol-christmas-2015?articleCategoryPostBrowserPageNo8=0. Way to go Andy!!!
In addition, two of BIT’s very own, Kaitlyn Martinez and Jessica Fosheim, were responsible for designing this beautiful site in collaboration with Heather Davidson from the Department of Tourism!
Jessica explained, “I was very happy to be able to be a part of one of Pierre’s greatest traditions. My favorite page is the tree page; the trees are all so beautifully decorated. The trees are fun to scroll through and view all the creativity and hard work everyone put into them.”
Kaitlyn also stated, “My favorite page is the tree page. It’s done in a Pinterest-like style and makes it fun to scroll through the different trees. Also, I really like this year’s theme. I have lived in three countries and each celebrates Christmas differently. It is fun to learn the different traditions.”
Heather went on to add, “I always feel honored to work on events that bring people into the Capitol City. This year I had an extremely capable and fun team build the website. My favorite page is the home page, because of the image of the Governor and First Lady. The love and joy in that picture reminds that, that is what this time of year is about. Family, love and joy shared through a smile from the heart.
Great job, ladies!
