Help Spread Holiday Joy
Nov 1 – Nov 30 all-day

The Library has set a goal of providing 100 Christmas cards to those living at a local nursing, and they want you to help make the cards. Here is how it works.

Anytime during the month of November, patrons can stop by the library to pick up a card kit. The kits include a card and materials for decorating it. Individuals are encouraged to draw on the cards, write messages and sign their names. Once people are done designing the card, it should be returned to the front of desk of the library. The library will then deliver the cards to the nursing home patients.

People of all ages are encouraged to participate. Cards kits must remain in the library, and all cards need to be completed by Nov. 30. The library will be closed Nov. 10-11 and Nov. 23-24

Presho Game on, Cancer Fundraiser
Nov 17 – Nov 18 all-day

Presho to Hold Cancer Center Fundraiser November 17 through 18 at Jet Lanes. Funds raised from “Game On, Cancer,” a 24-hour games marathon, will go towards building the Helmsley Cancer Center in Pierre and will be matched 1:1 by the Helmsley Foundation. Game players, fans and spectators are welcome to come and go throughout. Free will donations may be dropped off at any time during the 24 hours. Volunteers are needed to assist making game supplies, preparing cakes, running games, or to be available to lend a hand.


A beam that will be placed in the lobby of the Helmsley Cancer Center will be on hand for all to sign. Those signing have their choice of three pen colors: one for a cancer survivor, one in memory of, and one as a supporter of those who have had cancer.

A variety of games, suitable for all ages, will be offered and include some special events. 6:00 pm Friday will be the cancer derby, a race organizers created of horses representing cancer colors (pink for breast cancer, gold for pediatric cancer, etc.) that will call a winner based on donations designated for each color. Race progress will be posted hourly as donations are tallied. Lyman cheerleaders donated the “Cheer for a Cure” money jar where a donation gains a guess at the amount of money in the jar with the closest guess winning the money jar.

Games involving bowling, darts, bean bags, cards, dice and boards are on the agenda. Event planners challenge participants to organize/create their own games, noting supplies will be available. Lyman High Honor Society is in charge of games during “Teen Time,” which is 2 am until 7 am. Later Saturday morning, kids may decorate the face of their stick horse (provided) before racing their horses. A treasure hunt, two cake walks, and at least one balloon dart board are also planned.

Owner Carl Brakke says Jet Lanes is pleased to host “Game On, Cancer“ and he plans to donate a portion of his sales to the Helmsley Cancer Center. The kitchen will remain open later than usual with pizza and snacks offered all night. Breakfast will also be on the menu.

The cancer derby horses will cross the finish line at 5:59 pm Saturday, November 18, at which time funds donated will be tallied. Representatives of Avera St. Mary’s Foundation will also be on hand for a special announcement.
