December is just around the corner, and the first two weeks of the month are going to be busy ones at the Cheyenne River Youth Project® in Eagle Butte, South Dakota. To start, CRYP will be hosting the 3rd annual Holiday Artists’ Market at 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, December 8 in the Cokata Wiconi teen center; then, on Monday and Tuesday, December 9 and 10, the 25-year-old, not-for-profit, grassroots youth organization will host 25th anniversary versions of its annual teen and youth holiday parties at Cokata Wiconi and The Main youth center.
It’s not too late for Cheyenne River artists, vendors, craftspeople and chefs to get involved in the Holiday Artists’ Market as CRYP is actively encouraging community members to participate. Simply call (605) 964-8200 to book a booth, which costs $15. All fees benefit CRYP’s youth programming and services; vendors keep their own proceeds from sales. Space is limited, so those interested are encouraged to book soon.
