The De Smet Community Foundation received a 2016 grant as a recipent of a Bush Prize. This year they came to town and made a video about what made De Smet stand out as a winner. It’s a different look at the town from a non-Laura prespective, including some aerial shots. Keep an eye out though, there are a few of our Laura friends in there too.
