The March 15th after school movie is Disney’s HERCULES!
Disney tackles Greek mythology in this animated feature. Hercules (Tate Donovan), a son of gods, was snatched as a baby by Hades (James Woods) and forced to live among mortals as a half-man, half-god. Now a teenager, Hercules needs to perform a rite of passage on Earth to prove himself worthy of living with the gods on Mount Olympus. With his plucky satyr sidekick, Philoctetes (Danny DeVito), along for the ride, Hercules must learn how to use his strength to defeat a series of evil creatures.
Join us this Sunday!
Join us at the Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library on Tuesday, March 12th, 2019 at 5:00 pm as we welcome home Kim Clodfelter, author of the new book, Cloddy: Coach Dwane “Cloddy” Clodfelter, a Pioneer in the Integration of NCAA College Basketball.
Cloddy is a biography about Kim’s father Dwane “Cloddy” Clodfelter, former men’s basketball coach at the University of South Dakota. Coach Clodfelter was a pioneer in the integration of college basketball during the 50’s and 60’s.
From humble beginnings, Cloddy grew up in a small town in South Dakota during the Great Depression. After graduating from Woonsocket High School in 1936, he earned a two-year teaching degree at Southern Teachers College and then began a forty-five-year teaching and coaching career. Cloddy became the men’s basketball coach at USD in 1954. At that time, college basketball was not fully integrated. In Cloddy’s first year as men’s basketball coach, he recruited two black brothers from Brooklyn, New York. For the next thirteen years, he continued to recruit minority athletes and, along the way, met with stiff resistance. Cloddy is a testament to hard work, courage, and loyalty.
Kim Clodfelter grew up right here in Vermillion and is a graduate of USD. Learn more about him on his website at kimclodfelter.com.
The March 8th after school movie is THE PRINCESS DIARIES!

As the heir apparent to the crown of the small European principality of Genovia, Mia begins a comical journey toward the throne when her strict and formidable grandmother, Queen Clarisse Renaldi (Julie Andrews), shows up to give her “princess lessons.”
