Postmark Pursuit by Molly Goad

This year’s pictorial postmark for Danish Viking Days, a celebration of the Danish roots of Viborg, S.D., is a shout-out to local businesses that shone through tough times.

The Danish Viking Days Committee and the local post office teamed up to bring to fruition the official cancellation shown here. The image honors the 2021 Friends of Viborg award winner, an accolade that was established in 2003 to recognize an individual, family or organization that has made an impact in the community.

Under the theme of “What Stays Local, Grows Local,” the committee selected Viborg businesses as the winner of the 2021 award.

“Through the pandemic and uncertain economic climate, the businesses of Viborg have persevered. The Danish Viking Days Committee would like to honor all the businesses of Viborg for their commitment to the community,” the event website at states.

The cancellation was designed by Juanita O’Gorman of rural Viborg.

To obtain the postmark, address your request to: 

DANISH VIKING DAYS Station, Postmaster, 103 S. Main St., Viborg, SD 57070-9998, July 17.
