PanCan Pub Crawl- Pancretic Cancer Awareness

Saturday, May 2nd 2015 - 1:45 pm - 6:30 pm at Rounding 3rd
304 West 3rd Street

This is the 3rd Annual Pancreatic Cancer Awareness/ Fundraiser.

The PanCan Poker Run Pub Crawl is a fundraiser to help eliminate pancreatic cancer through advancement of research and to enhance the care and support of all those affected. Pancreatic Cancer is most often misdiagnosed and there is no early testing. All funds are donated to Washington University Siteman Cancer Center for research. The Center has made great strides in treating this type of cancer.

Together we can make a difference. We crawl this day in memory of those we have lost and in honor of them. Come and crawl with us to raise awareness and find a cure. We are crawling with a 6 year survivor from Yankton, Bob Willcockson, his strength and determination and support to beat this silent killer is amazing, so come and crawl with us along with Bob to help others provide ” Just one more day.”

The Stavig Letters Performance

Thursday, May 7th 2015 - 6:30 pm at Yankton Community Library
515 Walnut Street

Pursuing a brighter future in the United States, Lars Stavig leaves the rugged coast of Norway and journeys to the prairies of Dakota Territory.  Though they never see each other again, Lars and his brother Knut write back and forth, sharing their experiences across the sea.

Covering a span of five decades, the letters of the two brothers reflect challenges faced by families in both Norway and America and provide a window into the universal immigrant story of separation, hope, and the struggle to survive.

A dramatic performance of The Stavig Letters:  The Story of a Norwegian Immigrant comes to us through a reader’s theatre at the Yankton Community Library, 515 Walnut Street, on Thursday, May 7, beginning at 6:30 p.m.  This program is sponsored by the library who receives funding from the South Dakota Humanities Council.

The Stavig Letters have gained recognition through an award-winning documentary produced by South Dakota Public Broadcasting Corporation (2011) and the book Dear Unforgettable Brother published by the South Dakota State Historical Society Press (2013).   The Yankton Community Library owns copies of both items.

For more information about this program, contact the library at 668-5276.
