State Parties


Dakotas – March 15

Steve Perkins

North Dakotans and South Dakotans and friends from Sun Lakes and surrounding areas are all invited to the annual North and South Dakota Party held at Palo Verde Country Club on Thursday, March 15.

It is a more casual format this year. We have an event sponsor, Dakota-based Western State Bank, with branches here in Arizona. We will have nice door prizes and lots of fun.

Please spread the word. We lost a lot of our old contact lists, so we need your help!

Cost is $15 per person and includes the buffet dinner. The event will be from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 15. Please contact us as soon as possible, as we are on a very tight schedule to get the headcount for dinners.

For more information and reservations, contact [email protected] or call Marianne Perkins at 507-227-2099, Steve Perkins at 507-920-3532, Corrine Zimmerman at 701-219-4689 or Willard Pederson at 218-791-0140.
