BASEC Welcomes News Board Member Tony Haarstad

(Doland, SD)(Press Release) – BASEC (Beadle and Spink Enterprise Community) recently added a new member to their Board of Directors: Tony Haarstad.

Haarstad joined the BASEC board in January, 2021. He and his wife, Kathy, live in Iroquois, SD, where he is a realtor. They have 3 children and 6 grandchildren.

“Being born and raised, and now residing in rural Beadle County, I can’t think of a better place to raise a family,” Haarstad said. “I love living here because communities pull together and neighbors help neighbors.”

Haarstad was familiar with BASEC prior to joining the Board of Directors. The services BASEC offers helped get his construction company started years ago.
