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 starting August 18 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. 

Thank you for your support!

SURROUNDING  COMMUNITIES'  EVENTS.....

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.

For more information, call 402-275-3221, log on to www.greenblattandseay.com, or e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

 


 

Lofte Theatre

 

“King O’ The Moon” Opens at Lofte 
 
The Lofte Community Theatre will open the family comedy-drama, “King O’ The Moon” on Saturday, August 30.  Written by Tom Dudzick, “King” is Part II in a trilogy loosely based upon his family life in Buffalo, NY.  Part I, “Over the Tavern,” was produced by the Lofte in 2009.  “King O’ The Moon,” follows the Pazinski family’s journey into the rebellious 1960s, just as Apollo 11 is about to land on the moon.  The family gathers together to remember their father, Chet and catch-up with each other in the midst of the Civil Rights movement and the Viet Nam War. 
 
Directed by Kevin Colbert, the production has one actress reprising her role.  Cheryl Grimshaw again plays the strong Pazinski family matriarch, Ellen.  Joining her onstage as the rest of the Pazinski children are Joshua Smith of Plattsmouth, Eddie McGonigal of Omaha, Benjiman Pettiford and Kaitlan Scates-Pettiford both of Bellevue.  Meredith McAdams and Ed Cutler round-out the cast. 
 
Production dates for the show are August 30, 31, September 5-7 and 12-14.  Tickets are $19.  Curtain time on Fridays and Saturdays is 7:30pm.  Sunday matinees are at 2pm.  Reservations can be made by calling the Lofte box office at (402) 234-2553.
