The crickets felt it was their duty to warn everybody that summertime cannot last forever.  Even on the most beautiful days in the whole year – the days when summer is changing into autumn – the crickets spread the rumor of sadness and change.

SOME KIDS COULD SURE USE 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 or Murray Christian Church, Mondays and Thursdays, between 8 am and noon. We can pick up your items, too, if you cannot drop them off. Call Jill at 402-235-2527 on Monday or Thursday 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!

cookie dough 1

As the cool weather (slowly) comes closer, so will baking season. Who hasn't swooned over a spoonful of cookie dough or licked the bowl clean of cake batter after mixing up a family favorite?

If you're one of many that hasn't suffered the effects of a grumbly tummy afterward, you are definitely one of the lucky ones. Everyone, most especially the very young and elderly, need to be aware and not give in to the temptation.  Not only have raw eggs been on the list for foods to stay away from, but also, most recently, flour.  If your kids have expressed an interest in the culinary arts, first visit the website below with them for some very useful tips on food safety.  You'll be glad you did!

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…”

2018 08 15 road construction sign

Be sure to add a few extra minutes to your travel plans, if you need to go through Murray on Highway 1 in the near future. Work will begin on the roads from Murray west to 84th Street.  The road work will most likely will continue through the fall. There will be a pilot car, so you should expect to wait a few minutes to continue on your journey. For everyone's safety remember to go slowly through the work zone. Above all, be patient and be kind.

Harvest Ale Festival is Coming on

October 13th!

The Nebraska Craft Brewers Guild, Nebraska Hop Program and Midwest Hop Producers present the inaugural Nebraska Harvest Ale Festival

The Nebraska Craft Brewers Guild, Nebraska Extension Hop Program and Midwest Hop Producers are thrilled to announce a new and exciting event that promotes community and the hop growing and craft brewing industries. The Harvest Ale Festival will take place on Saturday, October 13th at Midwest Hop Producers in Plattsmouth, Nebraska and will celebrate local hops and local beer with food, beer tastings, fall activities and music.

While we might be drenched in sweat under the summer sun busily preparing for harvest this fall, we can look forward to fall days with a nip in the air, crisp beers with fresh hop aromas, and gatherings with friends as the sun goes down. This unique outdoor festival will feature tastings of fresh hopped and harvest styled brews highlighting local hop and craft brew production in Nebraska, local food trucks, scenic views of the largest hop yard in Nebraska, and an afternoon you won’t forget among friends.

This event will bring people from all over the Midwest together and a portion of the proceeds from the event will be going to support the efforts of the Nebraska Craft Brewers Guild and the Nebraska Hop Program’s research and extension hop yard. Both of these organizations are working hard to better the craft brewing industry in the state!

MUSICAL INSTRUMENT LENDING PROGRAM

The Great Plains Bluegrass and Old-Time Music Association has a wonderful instrument lending program, so please share this information with folks that you know. Here is the information from Jim Wood:

"We are in full swing looking for kids ages 5 to 16 who want to learn to play a bluegrass/old time instrument! 
The instruments we are lending include guitar, fiddles of different sizes, banjo, and mandolin, and have recently been gifted with a fine Dobro, thanks to Doug Van Horn. 
These instruments may be borrowed for a year as long as the learner has a mentor from our music association. 
The mentor will be selected by the student and parent. 
This mentor will give the Instrument lending committee a report of progress every three months."

If you wish to get an application to this Lending program, please contact Jim Wood at 402-397-4673 or jkwood@unomaha.edu.
