It's gonna smell incredible downtown this weekend as Camp High Hope's Ribfest returns to Battery Park plus your usual assortment of summer time activities continues.

This week on The Exchange, we hear sound from the rededication of an old memorial marking the Old Missouri River Trail in War Eagle Park. The Daughters of the American Revolution first dedicated the monument back in 1928.  The group and many others assisted the group in finding the stone again and recreating the monument in War Eagle Park.

The monument was thought to be lost for much of the 20th century.  Native American Michael O'Conner prayed and sang at the event.
