"THE WAY to a MAN'S, (or WOMAN'S), HEART
is
THROUGH THEIR STOMACH"

2018 10 31 MCC cookbook 1

Valentine's Day is coming up.  Not only at Christmas, birthdays, Mother's and Father's Day, new graduates, moving into a new home ~ people love receiving new recipes!  Even if you just want to give a gift for no reason, this is perfect, and would brighten someone's day.

Members of the Murray Christian Church, Murray, NE,  have created a new cookbook that's perfect for gift-giving.  There are still cookbook collectors out there that enjoy 'old-fashioned' cookbooks, without having to go on the internet to find good, home-tested recipes and who would surely appreciate this addition to their collection!  Included are 78 pages of recipes, along with cooking tips, too.

Cookbooks are only $10 each, with proceeds going to the church. 

Call Linda, 402-235-2831, for more information. 

Make someone happy and purchase their gift today. Who knows?  They might cook up a special treat for you in return!  Yum!

KIDS NEED YOUR HELP!

2018 09 19 backpack

The Conestoga Backpack Pantry serves the Murray, Nehawka, Union and Beaver Lake areas in southeast Nebraska, although we will not turn away anyone in need. Food packs are placed in the childrens' locker at school to take home on the weekends, helping to sustain them until returning to school the following week.

Your kind donation of non-perishable food items can be made at Cornerstone Bank in Murray during business hours, Monday-Friday: 8:00 am-4:00 pm. We can also pick up your items, if you cannot drop them off. Call Jill at 402-660-3543 to make arrangements.

Some ideas are cereal, juice boxes, granola bars, cereal bars, pancake mix, peanut butter, jelly, tuna or chicken salad packs, fruit cups, raisins, cheese and cracker snacks, macaroni and cheese cups, etc. Keep in mind that some of the children are very young and are possibly 'preparing' their own meals. Easy to open containers are a good option for little hands.

Each time you shop, just pick up one thing and set it aside and after a few weeks, drop off your bag of items at the bank or church.

Thank you!

BACK TO SCHOOL? 
IT ISN'T JUST FOR KIDS ANYMORE!

Now is the Time….

“Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country.” Charles E. Weller, an early typing teacher, wrote this as a keyboarding drill for his students. His idea relates to an attempt to overcome the “skills gap”.

The United States has unemployed workers while it urgently needs more than 5 million higher-skilled workers. How is that possible? Although many solutions have been offered, employers insist that unemployed American workers do not have the strong literacy, numeracy, and other workplace skills that our country needs to fill its empty jobs and compete in the global marketplace. Who knew that educating oneself is a part of patriotism?

Currently, GED programs across the nation are offering high school equivalency classes including literacy and numeracy skills, in addition to keyboarding, computer, and workplace skill training. Are you looking for a path to better employment? The Plattsmouth Adult Education Program offers classes and training in all these areas.

Classes are free and provided six times per week: Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to noon and from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church, 701 Chicago Avenue (lower building.) Classes include individual learning plans and individual study as well as group discussions. Every student will have computer time during each study period.

Call 402-296-3174 ext. 2315 for information or just come at class time and check it out. You will be welcomed by a community of friendly and respectful teachers and students. Don’t delay. “Now is the time…”

ARE YOU 55+

and

LOOKING FOR PART-TIME WORK?

The following is an employment opportunity available to older adults in Cass County.

Experience Works is a national, non-profit organization funded by the US Dept of Labor to administer the Senior Community Service Employment Program, which assists people 55 and older in getting updated training to assist in returning to the workforce. This is a federally funded program and offers a no-cost employment service to older adults who qualify.
Once accepted into the program, individuals are placed in a training site in or near their community, where they gain on the job experience while working 20-21 hours/week at $8/hour.
We also help with skill assessments, computer training, resumes, cover letters, job search, etc.
The goal is that through the training and job search assistance we gain help older adults gain good jobs in or around their communities.
