The community of Merna had plenty to celebrate this past weekend with its annual Heritage Days Festival. Not only did this year mark the 25th anniversary of the festival, but it is also the 125th anniversary of the community. A large birthday cake, so big it had to be hauled on a flat-bed trailer, was served as part of the celebration.For more on this story, and lot of pictures, see this week's Custer County Chief!
