                       CLAIRE CITY, SOUTH DAKOTA


 Mr. THUNE. Mr. President, today I recognize Claire City, SD. 
Founded in 1913, Claire City will celebrate its 100th anniversary this 
year.
  Located in Roberts County, Claire City possesses a strong sense of 
community that makes South Dakota an outstanding place to live and 
work. On August 15, 1913, many people gathered along the treeless 
prairie to buy lots for $100 to $600 in this new town named after 
Claire Feeney. Claire City has continued to be a strong reflection of 
South Dakota's greatest values and traditions. The community of Claire 
City has much to be proud of and I am confident that Claire City's 
success will continue well into the future.
  Claire City will commemorate the centennial anniversary of its 
founding with celebrations held from June 28th through June 30th 
featuring events such as a parade, tractor pull, and an auction of 
centennial items. I would like to offer my congratulations to the 
citizens of Claire City on this milestone anniversary and wish them 
continued prosperity in the years to come.
