To kick things off this coming Tuesday, USDA Officials will be in Kahoka to announce a Certificate of Award for Fire and Rescue–five units of Self Contained Breathing Apparatus with extra cylinders for the City fire department.
Officials will then head for the Scotland County Courthouse to award a Certificate of Recognition for funding the purchase of a new patrol vehicle to enhance and improve preparedness and day-to-day operations. The patrol vehicle will improve the safety and quality of life for the 4,983 residents in Scotland County.
Then, USDA State Director Janie Dunning, USDA Area Representatives and other officials will head out to Scotland County Hospital where they will participate in the ribbon cutting for the newly expanded and remodeled 10-million dollar Hospital and Surgery Center.
Tours of the facility will be offered from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m., with the official ribbon cutting at 5:00 p.m..
