Last Thursday, the Evergreen content team traveled to Keystone for a day of exploring. While it’s always nice to get away from the office for a day, there was a purpose for our “Content Blitz”—the first in a planned series of outings exploring the various communities throughout the Black Hills.
Every June 5, South Dakotans celebrate 605 Day. The unofficial “holiday” was dreamed up by the South Dakota Department of Tourism in 2016 as a way to engage residents and encourage them to share their pride for the state. South Dakota is one of only twelve states with a single area code (605), a number that has become synonymous with our culture, so choosing a date to show appreciation for this place we call home was a no-brainer: June 5 (6/05) it was!
