Join us at noon Friday, Aug. 7 for the Dakota Territorial Museum’s monthly Brown Bag, as we welcome Phyllis Shrag from Sioux Falls.
Shrag will be presenting “Letters from the Attic” which offers a perspective into the life and times of those who settled in Dakota Territory. The presentation is based on letters written in German and addressed to Shrag’s great-grandfather. The letters have been carefully saved, never translated, and handed down through the generations. They detail faith, personal experiences and the agricultural way of life for Dakotans between 1878 and 1889.
Shrag’s visit is make possible through a grant from the South Dakota Humanities Council.
The museum’s monthly Brown Bag lunches are the first Friday of each month and are open to the public. There is no charge, but a free will donation is accepted.

Second Annual “Get Inspired!” Peter Auch 5K Memorial Race and Fun Glow Run/Walk Scheduled Beresford, South Dakota
Last year, over 500 participants gathered in Beresford, South Dakota to honor the memory of Peter Auch in the first ever Peter Auch Memorial 5K and Fun Glow Run. Organizers of the second annual event have high hopes of drawing even more participants the second time around.
The festivities will take place August 8, at the Beresford High School. The scheduled activities include:
5:00-6:30 p.m. Registration
7:30-7:30 p.m. Introduction, National Anthem, and Line Up
7:30 p.m. 5K Timed Competitive Run
8:15 p.m. Speaker Doug Adams from the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Special Music, and 5K Awards Ceremony
9:00 p.m. Glow Run/Walk (approx. 2 miles)
The event celebrates the life of Peter Auch, a 16 year old, who attended Beresford High School who was tragically killed in a car accident in November 2013. Peter was known as a leader in his class by his example and influence on his peers to excel in all they did. His passion was for running and academics. He made it his aim to make Jesus the center of his life and has challenged us to not waste our lives.
In addition to the races, attendees will enjoy a program of music and a speaker who will focus attention on strengthening and deepening our faith in God. A meal will be available for a goodwill offering. No registration is needed to attend the portion of the evening featuring the speaker and music. All are welcome to come and enjoy the evening and cheer on the runners and walkers. It’s a beautiful sight to see the runners at dusk shining with their glow wear!!
On the “Get Inspired” Facebook page, Mary, Peter’s mother wrote, “to be inspired means to be moved or guided by divine influence. The purpose of this race is to be a tool by which we are inspired to carry on in Peter’s example, and use our lives to shine for God, using the abilities He’s given us to share His love.”
Registration for the races can be completed at www.allsportcentral.com. A t-shirt will be included for each participant registered before July 27. Registration for the 5K is $25; the Glow Run/Walk is $20; or registration for both races is $35. Discounts are available for families or teams. All proceeds from the event go toward the Jesus Film Project.
After last year’s event, Peter’s mother said, “I thought many times how much fun Peter would have had at the race and missed seeing him run with all who participated. It was bittersweet. Such an amazing, wonderful night, though! The beauty of it will glow in my memory for a long time to come.”
For additional information about the event, visit the Get Inspired: Peter Auch 5K and Fun Glow Run page on Facebook or call Cindy at 605-214-4380.
