Doorns give up on Lenkota Acres development

Fourteen Shrine temples from the Midwest and Canada will converge on Sioux Falls and surrounding communities for the Midwest Shrine Association’s summer session, a time of competitions, celebrations and parades. The El Riad Shrine in Sioux Falls will host this year’s session, scheduled for August 20-23. About 2,000 Shriners and their families are expected to attend.
Thursday, August 21, the Shriners will parade in Tea. The parade route is as follows: Starts at Main/St. Nicholas; south to Holly; west to Cole and north to Brian. The parade kicks off at 6 p.m. and is expected to last about two hours.
Chris Karr, a public relations director for the El Riad Shrine, said Tea was at the top of the list when the Shriners were considered where to hold a parade. “We have a great working relationship with Tea from Teapot Days and other parades,” he said. “You have to consider the size of the town for staging and parking and logistically, Tea was a good choice and there is usually a strong turnout for parades held in Tea.”
