RAPID CITY, S.D. - Tuesday (November 15) marks the eighth season when winter apparel items can be placed on the downtown statues.
Many church, youth and other groups and organizations will organize efforts to place several items on the statues at one time. On Tuesday, a group of residents from the Echo Ridge Good Samaritan Society independent living facility will place homemade crocheted winter apparel items on some of the statues.
“We have a group of residents who have spent several months crocheting scarves and some other items for placement on the statues,” said Angela Wiederich, senior living manager at Echo Ridge. “They have made over a dozen items to be placed on the statues and are hoping the items will keep several people who are in need, warm this winter.”
