Gift of Grain

Monday, September 15th 2014 - All Day

A word to our farmers about making a special gift – a gift of grain.   Find ways that you can both decrease my tax bill and still help the Salvation Army meet the increased demands of those in need, especially this time of year.  This year, before you sell your grain, call The Salvation Army at 1-800-274-0628, and discover the benefits a gift of grain can make. You will be pleasantly surprised at both the tax savings and how good you will feel.  To make a gift of grain, call today, 1-800-274-0628.  On behalf of The Salvation Army, thank you for helping us Do the Most Good.

Free Tree Drop Off

Monday, October 13th 2014 - 8:00 am - 3:45 pm at Yankton Transfer & Recycling Center
1200 W 23rd St

Take advantage of free drop off for street tree trimmings as part of the City of Yankton’s annual effort to
improve visibility and safety on city thoroughfares. Tree limbs hanging over city streets and alleys must
be trimmed to twelve foot (12’) and ten foot (10’) over sidewalks. Property owners are responsible for
trimming trees on their property or any trees growing in the boulevard next to their property. Tree
limbs and trimmings can be dropped off at the Transfer Station located at 1200 West 23rd Street free of
charge from October 13th to October 25th, Monday – Saturday 8:00 a.m. – 3:45 p.m (excluding Monday
and Thursday evenings). Visit cityofyankton.org for more information and for examples of tree pruning
techniques. Tree trimming not only improves visibility for all drivers, but also helps keep the roads clear
for emergency and other vehicles. Clear roadways mean that school buses can run routes on time, and
snow plows can efficiently clear streets once the snow starts falling.
