Recalling 2018

Weather was a big newsmaker this year as bitter cold temperatures, a late season blizzard, above-average summer and fall rains, and 13.5 inches in December actually caused grumbling about too much precipitation. Gregory also saw several new businesses start up as the city created a new paid position of Director of the Chamber of Commerce.


2018 started off with record cold temperatures, prompting the cancellation of many New Year’s Eve celebrations. Also in January, the city transitioned to LED lighting on Main Street, Prairie Treasures Gift Shop opened their doors, fire totally destroyed the home of Nick and Ruth Ann Myers, and Brian Allmendinger was named South Dakota Football Coach of the Year. Holly Glover was chosen to fill the newly-created Community Development Director position, and Ranch House Gifts, Antiques, Decor, & More opened for business.
