Letcher Community Club
The Letcher Community Club is made up of volunteer members who are willing to work to better our community.

Past and current projects include the following:

  • Annual Halloween Party (since 1991)
    The Letcher Community Club plans and puts on an annual Halloween party at the Sanborn Central School. Costumes are judged, with carnival games following.

  • Letcher Cookbooks
    Letcher's 125th Celebration Cookbook - 2007In 1998 the Letcher Community Club collected recipes from many, many families in the community, as well as former Letcher residents, to compile a new cookbook. The last community cookbook was published 15 years prior to this one. Proceeds from the sale of the cookbooks has sponsored many of the other projects the club does.

    To celebrate Letcher's 125th anniversary in 2007, the Letcher Community Club compiled their second cookbook.

  • "Paint South Dakota" Participant
    The Letcher Community Club annually applies for a grant from the Paint South Dakota program sponsored by the South Dakota Housing Development Authority to paint a house in Letcher. A Saturday in June is selected as a paint day, and volunteers come together to get the job done.

The playground area is used by Letcher children, as well as children visiting from out of town on ballgame days.
