Softball tourney to benefit homeless shelter

Saturday, September 6th 2014 - All Day

Dust off your glove and join the Yankton “Texas League” Coed Softball Tournament to benefit Yankton Homeless Shelter on Saturday, September 6th.
The tournament is the first of its kind in Yankton and organizer John Pooler hopes to make it an annual event.

The bracket is open to the first 20 registered teams. All players must be 14 years old or older. To register a team, call or text Pooler at 605.661.3881.
Texas League style will make for very fast, fun games. Each batter starts with a full count – which means they get one pitch per at bat. Batters will either hit, walk, or strikeout. Most ASA rules will apply. Teams must be even with both female and male players. Each team can play 8, 10, or 12 players at a time.
Cost per team is $125.00 with awards going to the first, second, and third place finishers. All other proceeds collected from registration will be donated to the Yankton Homeless Shelter.
The one-day tournament will begin Saturday morning and finish up in the evening. As of Monday, eight teams had registered for the event.

Farmers Market

Wednesday, September 10th 2014 - 9:00 am - 12:00 pm at Open Lot
702 E. Park Ave

The Northeast Nebraska Resource Conservation & Development (RC&D) Council will be bringing a Farmers Market to town beginning June 11th. Their vacant lot located at 702 E. Park Ave., east Highway 20, Plainview will be the site for the market. This particular location offers great highway access, is a highly visible spot and provides a shady area where the vendors can set up their booths.

Jim and Pearl Laycock, local entrepreneurs and vegetable growers, will be the market managers. They are well-versed in the operation of a farmers market and have participated in the Pierce market for a number of years.

The market will run through the growing season which should end approximately September 30th. Hours of operation will be Wednesdays from 9 a.m. until noon. Those interested in becoming vendors or who would like more information may contact the Laycocks at 402-582-3334, or the RC&D office at 402-582-4866 or via email northeastrcd@plvwtelco.net.

The local foods movement is important to the RC&D because the rural area being served is highly dependent on agriculture. It is widely accepted that locally grown food and fresh, whole foods are best for health and are the best value in purchasing food.

This project will hopefully grow new farmers’ market vendors and increase local food access for area citizens. Anything that can be done to encourage citizens to take advantage of purchasing and eating the food grown right in their own locale is a plus – not only for them, but for those growing it.
