Family tree

DO YOU REMEMBER?

Recently, I received a note from a reader in Montana, asking if anyone in this area remembers his family from many years ago.  Maybe you can help him with his family tree.  Below is his note:

"Hello, we are planning a trip to your town in September. We are looking for our ancestors, Everetts and Chidesters. The Everetts, settled there about 1860. John Everett came there from England around 1860 and bought a farm. He had a son named Cluadius, who had a son named Edward, who had a son named Austin.

Any way if you could help us find some of our family it would be great to meet as many as we could.

Thank you, I look forward to your reply.

Ken Everett, in Montana
mtkeneverett@gmail.com"

Diversified Adult group

When your group or club meets for an event, take some photos and send them to me with a summary of what was happening and I'll post them here in the Murray Newsletter.  Readers want to see involvement in and around our village.  It not only helps to promote our town, but it could create interest in joining your group.

Youth groups and other civic groups do litter pick-up, sponsor Easter egg hunts, collect food for those less fortunate and meet for crafting, among lots of other events.  Be sure to check the calendar to the right for upcoming events, also.

  Send your photos and news to Editor@MurrayNebraska.com.

Thanks!

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!

Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths among men and women in the United States. An estimated 108,000 new cases will be diagnosed each year. Regular colorectal cancer screenings can detect colorectal cancer early when the chances for cure are best. Because of this, the Sarpy/Cass Health Department is offering free fecal occult blood test (FOBT) home screening kits to both men and women between the ages of 50 and 74 years.

The screening kits are available at the Health Department’s office at 701 Olson Drive, Suite 101, Papillion, Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Call (402) 537-6969 for more information.

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…”

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.
