SCHWAN'S ICE CREAM FUNDRAISER 

The Murray Presbyterian Deacons, under the name of "Mighty Murray Small Church", are raising funds to be donated to the Lori Williams family of Murray, NE.  Lori was paralyzed due to an accident several months ago and now her family is under mounting financial stress.  Lori's family  will receive 20% of orders now through October 2, 2014  and, after October 2, will receive 5% for one year.  

To order online, you must enter www.schwans-cares.com/f/32144 .  Go to 'Shop Now' and an online catalog, with the name 'Sherrill Konfrst', (church deacon),  will be presented to you.   

If you would like to place your order over the phone, please call
1-855-870-7208 and use fundraiser ID # 32144.    

If you live in the U.S. and have local Schwan's delivery, you may participate in this worthy cause.  A Schwan's delivery person will deliver your products directly to your home and you'll be helping Lori and her family!  Feel free to forward this to your friends across the country! 

Please direct any questions you might have to Sherrill at 402-235-2844.

Help food bank and set world record

About 20 percent of Nebraska children are at risk for hunger.  

To help feed these children, http://www.wearethepowerofone.org/volunteer" We Are The Power of O.NE is seeking volunteers for its city wide spaghetti feed on Sunday, Sept. 21, in an attempt to break a Guinness World’s Record for the most people fed in one sitting.

The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at various locations across the metro at various high schools and community centers. The organization has a goal of feeding 20,000 people in order to set the new world record.

The group hopes to raise $100,000 to benefit the Food Bank for the Heartland. Nearly 16 percent of Nebraskans reported at least one time within the past 12 months that they did not have enough money to buy food for themselves or their family.

Volunteers are needed to secure supplies, set up, serve up and clean up at the various sites. Organizers say they hope this event will bring people together in a fun and inclusive manner while raising awareness of food insecurity in our community. 

“Omaha needs to be this, to do this and to get behind ourselves and retain the small town “do for one another camaraderie,” said Lin Leahy, president.

For more information on how to become a volunteer, please visit us on Facebook athttp://www.facebook.com/WeAreThePowerofONE or contact Lynne Reed at (402) 651.0490.

http://www.wearethepowerofone.org/volunteer"  We Are The Power of O.NE is a nonprofit organization dedicated to feeding the Omaha metropolitan area through a one-day event where for one day no one in the Omaha area will go hungry.

FIDDLING BEE 


Greenblatt & Seay proudly announce the Eighteenth ANNUAL SCHOOLHOUSE FIDDLING BEE.  This historical, hysterical event will take place on Sunday, October 12, at 2:30 PM, downstairs in the Old Avoca, Nebraska Schoolhouse.  In the Open Division, fiddlers will play a hoedown, a waltz, and a tune of choice.  There will also be other divisions of competition available for the adventurous fiddlers, including a Singing Fiddler's Contest, a Twin Fiddler's Contest, a Fee-Fi-Faux Fiddler's Contest (fiddle tunes played on any instrument other than a fiddle), and a Hocus-Pocus Contest (cross-tuning, sound effects, dancing, etc.), which will give fiddlers an opportunity to play tunes that are usually not allowed in any other contest.

Contestants can pre-register on line (http://www.greenblattandseay.com/schoolhouse_fiddling_bee_preregistration.shtml).

Admission is $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for students, and $1.00 for children.  Fiddlers and their back-ups are admitted for free.  The contest will be followed by a light snack and an acoustic jam session.
