In 1946, the American Legion Post 36 decided to have a big Veterans Day celebration. It was decided that following a football game with Butte, Neb. a western party would be held at the City Hall - western wear, music, games and fun. Powder River had its beginning. The celebration included a show, hosting a dance and sometimes offering a costume party.
