Open house this afternoon will honor Gates

ABERDEEN, S.D. ( – Sue Gates is retiring as Director of the Dacotah Prairie Museum. An open house will take place from 1 to 4 this afternoon at the museum in her honor.

Gates has been with the museum since the fall of 1988. She has seen many changes through the years.

She did not hesitate when asked what she will miss most about her job.

Gates said the transformation of the building was among the most satisfying things that took place during her tenure.

Gates is hoping that people will swing by this afternoon to enjoy some refreshments and allow her to say thank you to those that she’s served in more than three decades with the museum.
