Phyllis Schrag presents “Baseball, Preachers and Funerals.”

Friday, September 4th 2015 - 2:00 pm at Avera Sacred Heart Majestic Bluffs
2111 W 11th St

Life in a small town has its unique charms, and Phyllis Schrag will explore them during her entertaining presentation, “Baseball, Preachers and Funerals.”
Schrag is an independent scholar from Sioux Falls, and she will speak at 2 p.m. Friday, Sept. 4, in the Gathering Place at Avera Majestic Bluffs.
“Baseball, Preachers and Funerals” is a presentation in a storytelling format and provides a humorous yet poignant look at small-town life. Its setting is a place where all the town kids were needed to have their own “World Series,” preachers had an impact on children’s development, and funerals were simply a part of life. Lessons gleaned from baseball, preachers and funerals present a child’s perspective of life in a small town.
The presentation is free and open to the public.
This program at Avera Majestic Bluffs was made possible by the South Dakota Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
