What may have looked like a bunch of bronze presidents trying to stay warm in Downtown Rapid City Friday, was actually a rare act of kindness.
Early in the day all 43 presidential statues were donned in scarves, hats, or both but that would not last long.
Thanks to Love 'N Scarves Rapid City, anyone who was feeling a little chilly was welcome to grab the scarf or hat and use it. The groups goal was simply to offer warmth on Valentine's Day.
According to organizers, the idea was inspired by a good Samaritan in Ontario, Canada who did something similar.
