Diakon presents Jeanne Robertson
In Celebration of 150 Years
of Caring for our Neighbors

4 p.m., Oct. 21
Strand Theater at the Appell Center, York 

“I heard Jeanne Robertson on SiriusXM radio a number of times and loved the excerpts I heard. When I listened to her tell the story of whitewater rafting, I immediately thought of Diakon Youth Services’ wilderness-based programs, which employ canoeing and whitewater excursions and I knew Jeanne’s gentle and wise humor would be the perfect fit for Diakon’s major event celebrating its 150th anniversary.” — William Swanger, Diakon SVP for Corporate Communications

Join us at 4 p.m. Oct. 21 as we celebrate Diakon’s 150th anniversary by hosting a performance by nationally recognized humorist Jeanne Robertson.

Jeanne Robertson

At 73 years young, Jeanne Robertson continues to charm audiences with her humorous observations about life around her. This former Miss North Carolina, standing tall at six-foot-two, has an infectious personality, heart and sense of humor.

With eight nationally released DVDs, three books, hundreds of hours on SiriusXM satellite radio and more than 41 million YouTube hits, she has seen demand for her family-friendly and engaging brand of comedy grow exponentially. Some of her most popular anecdotes include "Don't Go to Vegas Without A Baptist," "Don't Bungee Jump Naked," and "Don't Send a Man to the Grocery Store."

Robertson's witty depiction of everyday situations never fails to have audiences of all ages rolling with laughter. Don't miss this performance by a truly funny lady!
