Yankton gearing up for Manufacturing Week
YANKTON, S.D. — The City of Yankton has announced plans to celebrate its industrial base during Manufacturing Week. The events will include facility tours, a Career and Technical Education (CTE) open house at the high school, a third promotion video and the second annual Manufacturing Olympics.
“Every year we try to add new elements to our week-long awareness campaign,” said Carmen Schramm, executive director of the Yankton Area Chamber of Commerce. “We will continue to do news campaigns with daily articles in the newspaper and interviews on local radio stations with area CEO’s and managers talking about what they produce. We’ll highlight various manufacturers during the week on our social media sites. And this year, we’re including a kick-off event, inviting the community to a cookout and open house that will showcase all the products made locally, all in one location.”
