Carrie Wintle and Miss South Dakota's Outstanding Teen,
Jessica Benson. In support of the event, the Ellsworth

attendance, "We've seen an increase in participation from
last year. It's great for our residents to feel our love
and support during these events."
Arranging live music, refreshments, home made cupcakes and
handing out a variety of handmade Valentine's Day cards—showing genuine support for Hot Spring's veteran and
senior citizen community was a top priority for planners
of last Thursday's event. MSgt (Ret) David A. Bamburg,
Senior Adviser for the Air Force Sergeants Association
stated, "These folks are extremely deserving of our
support. We're here to help in anyway we can."
