Angels Among Us

Friday, December 13th 2013 - All Day

Cramer-Kenyon Home

In honor of the holiday season which is close upon us, nearly 100 angels have found a temporary home on the first floor of the historic Cramer-Kenyon Home at 509 Pine Street in Yankton.  They will be ready to receive visitors at a series of Open Houses, titled “Angels Among Us”, scheduled for December 13, 14 and 15.

The Board of Directors of the Home wish to invite area residents and visitors to enjoy the beauty of the sumptuously furnished parlors on Friday, December 13th from 5:00 until 7:00 p.m., on Saturday December 14th from 1:00 until 5:00 p.m. and on Sunday December 15th from 1:00 until 5:00 p.m.  Board members will greet the guests on behalf of the angels, whose voices are meant more for singing.

This 3-day event is a gift to the community in gratitude for the support that has been given to the historical importance of the Eastlake Stick Style House.  As we discovered at the recent 125th birthday celebration of the state of South Dakota, the talk of statehood was fostered by those who dwelt in and visited 509 Pine Street.

As an extra added attraction, visitors will receive a chance in a drawing to be held at each Open House, the winner of which will take a vintage angel to his/her very own home.

Are there angels among us?  Come and visit, enjoy some light refreshments and decide for yourselves.  December 13 from 5 – 7, and from 1-5 on both December 14 and 15.
