We hope you celebrated Manufacturing Week!
It was a busy week in Yankton as manufacturers opened their doors to tours/open houses for the general public and also for special tours for students at Yankton High School. It was all part of Yankton’s celebration of South Dakota Manufacturing Week from Sept. 30 to Oct. 4, 2013.
Several articles appeared in the Yankton Daily Press & Dakotan during the week. Below are the links:
