Sidewalks Cleared

Monday, November 17th 2014 - All Day

The first snowfall of the year is a good reminder that many members of our community rely on clear sidewalks to get to and from school and work. If you have public sidewalks at your home or business please make arrangements for snow and ice removal within 24 hours after the end of a snowfall. Snow removed from driveways, sidewalks or parking lots should not be placed in the street. Contact the City of Yankton at 605-668-5251 for more information.

Holiday Event

Sunday, November 30th 2014 - All Day at Cramer-Kenyon Home
509 Pine Street

The hard-working Board of Directors of the Cramer-Kenyon Historic Home, located at 509 Pine Street in Yankton, have set the dates for two special holiday events that you will NOT want to miss.
After many requests for a Victorian Christmas High Tea to be held at the Home, the date of this elegant experience has been set for Sunday, November 30th. Since this will adhere to the traditions celebrated by both English and American High Teas, there will be a sequence of especially designated foods interspersed with teas, candies and lovely afternoon conversation.
Chairman Sue Lauck will be happy to guide guests through the intricacies of this luxurious afternoon experience and she and her committee will be sharing more details as time goes on. There will be a charge for this unique celebration.
The second of the highly anticipated events during the holiday season at the Cramer-Kenyon Home at 509 Pine Street are the Christmas Open Houses which are scheduled for December 12th from 5 – 7 pm and from 1 – 4 pm on December 13th and 14th. Once again the term “Elegant” comes into play as the home will be masterfully decorated for the season. Light refreshments will be available, and as has become the custom, this occasion is a gift to the community for the support the Home has received over the years. If you have any questions about this event, please call the curator at the Cramer-Kenyon Home at 665-7470.
We hope to introduce you to the elegance of Christmas Past.
