Mighty Mo Photo Show

Friday, July 25th 2014 - All Day

Also on the YAA website, find a call for entries for the YAA annual Mighty Mo Photo Show to be held July 25-September 2. The Mighty Mo Photo Show is an area photographic competition designed to compliment Yankton’s Annual Riverboat Days celebration and to encourage and recognize the talents of area photographers. All photographers living in South Dakota, Iowa, or Nebraska are invited to participate. This year’s theme is based on photographic interpretations of poetry submitted in the Mighty Mo category of the South Dakota State Poetry Society (SDSPS) competition sponsored by Yankton Area Arts. Entries do not have to include the Missouri River in the composition of the photo, but each entry must be a distinct photographic interpretation of one of the 10 Mighty Mo poems from the SDSPS entries. These 10 poems can be obtained at www.YanktonAreaArts.org or by calling the YAA office at 605-665-9754.

 

A Home for Austin Fund-raiser

Saturday, July 26th 2014 - 7:00 am - 7:00 pm

A Home For Austin will be hosting their final fund-raiser, the Mettle Run, on July 26th. The definition of mettle is “a person’s ability to cope well with difficulties or to face a demanding situation in a spirited and resilient way.”

The Home for Austin committee felt that was a fitting name to show honor to the little boy that the fund-raiser will benefit. Austin is a seven year old from Tea, SD. Austin lost his limbs just before his third birthday due to a rare form of meningitis. In an effort to give this little boy a handicap accessible home, a group of individuals and businesses formed A Home For Austin. Through generous donations and fund-raising efforts a home has been built by Lennox and Tea Area High School students during this past school year. The home is scheduled to be moved late July to a lot in Tea. A Home For Austin Committee members see this final fund-raiser not only as a chance to raise funds for the finishing touches but also as a celebration.

Valley Exchange Bank/Exchange Insurance Agency are main sponsors of the event. The Mettle Run will include a 5K, Half Marathon and a 1 Mile fun walk/run. The 5K is a chip-timed event that starts and ends in the Tea City Park. Route conditions are paved streets. Start time is 8:00am.

The Half Marathon is a chip-timed event that starts at Lennox High School and ends in the Tea City Park. Route conditions are paved streets and roads. Start time is 7:30am.
The 1 Mile fun walk/run is a non-timed event that will be held on the bike paths at Tea City Park. Route conditions; paved bike paths. Start time is 8:10am.

Cost for the Half Marathon is early registration $40 / after July 19, 2014 $45; cost for the 5K early registration $30 / after July 19, 2014 $35; cost for the 1 Mile early registration: $20 / after July 19, 2014 $25.
