Pilger Days begins despite tornado damage
Posted: 07/18/14 08:38
Not even a tornado will stop Pilger from hosting its annual summer festivities.
The Pilger Days event starts at 6:30 p.m. tonight with a horseshoe tournament, a high school alumni banquet and a chance to visit the Stanton County Historical Society Museum. Festivities will continue Saturday starting at 9 a.m., with a children's story time event, a mud volleyball tournament, a lunch and barbeque, and other activities. Organizers will hold a fundraiser Saturday afternoon with a $1,000 goal. The highest contributor will get to use a Taser on Stanton County Sheriff Mike Unger. The village is also hosting its annual Sweet Corn and Hamburger dinner on Aug. 6. Several 5- and 10-gallon drink containers were lost in the tornado. Containers can be left at the village clerk's office.
