                         DELMONT, SOUTH DAKOTA


 Mr. THUNE. Mr. President, today I recognize Delmont, SD. The 
town of Delmont will commemorate the 125th anniversary of its founding 
this year.
  Delmont was founded in 1886 after the first train passed through. 
Located in Douglas County, it boasts community members dedicated to 
supporting and growing local business. It is also home to the annual 
Kuchen Festival and the Harvest Festival. The citizens of Delmont have 
committed themselves to developing their strong heritage and 
traditions.
  Delmont has been a successful and thriving community for the past 125 
years, and I am confident that it will continue to serve as an example 
of South Dakota values and traditions. I would like to offer my 
congratulations to the citizens of Delmont on this landmark date and 
wish them continued prosperity in the years to come.
