Rushmore National Memorial, Crazy Horse Memorial, Badlands National Park, Wildlife Loop Road at Custer State Park (where the buffalo roam), and newly built 50-foot Dignity Statue.

Thirty-five seniors made the trip. Among those businesses who helped sponsor the trip were Mayflower Restaurant, Wendy’s, Paradise Salon, Dollar General, Wal-Mart, and the Dollar General Store.
