MURRAY GARAGE SALES


will be this Friday and Saturday, May 1st & 2nd.

Maps at most sale locations

*See address list below* 

If you plan to place your own signs along roadways PLEASE keep them away from the state's road signs and a minimum 15' from edge of road for safety.  (Per State Dept. of Roads)

Make your lettering BIG and BOLD, so that it can be read by drivers without them having to slow down to read it.

NEVER use nails or staples on power poles when placing signs, because they're a safety hazard for electrical workers.

ALWAYS remove your signs immediately after the sales.  Signs left up blow around, littering  our village, roadways and countryside.

PLEASE clean-up after your sales and remove all signs!

Questions, call Pat, 235-2926.

Gizmo Guys to Perform at the Lofte

What do you get when you cross world-class juggling talent with family-friendly comedy?

The answer is, the Gizmo Guys!

Gizmo_Guys


Allan Jacobs and Barrett Felker have amazed and amused audiences around the world. The Gizmo Guys have strutted their stuff in places as diverse as Saudi Arabia and Japan and have taught juggling at the renowned French and Canadian National Circus Schools.  But, what makes their act so appealing is their combination of technique and infectious humor.

The Gizmo Guys' rapid-fire act inspires sidesplitting laughter in audience members of all ages.
The Gizmo Guys are based out of New York City, but have visited Nebraska several times in the past. Most recently they performed at Lincoln's Lied Center for the Performing Arts in 2007 and treated a sell-out crowd to their special brand of family entertainment.


The Gizmo Guys will be performing at the Lofte on Friday, May 8th at 7:00pm.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for children ages 12 and under.

Their show generally runs about an hour.
Everyone from age 0-100 is encouraged to join us for this fun-filled evening. Bring the kids. Bring Grandma and Grandpa. The whole family will have fond memories of this one!

The Lofte Community Theatre is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization supported in part by The Cooper Foundation, The Midlands Community Foundation, and the Cass County Visitors Promotion Committee.  The Lofte Community Theatre isdedicated to providing opportunities for area residents of all ages to participate in the creation process and companionship of live theatre in rural Nebraska and to enjoy the social, artistic, and educational benefits of this art form.


 

 

Auditions at Lofte Theatre

The Lofte Community Theatre near Manley will be holding auditions for its summer musical, "Crazy For You" on Sunday, May 10th and Monday, May 11th at 7:00PM. The production will run weekends between July 17 and August 2. 

First premiering in 1992, "Crazy For You" is considered to be "the new Gershwin musical." The script is loosely based off of the 1930 show, "Girl Crazy" and the score is made up of Gershwin tunes from the era including,
"I Got Rhythm," and "Someone to Watch Over Me."

Those interested in auditioning should bring a prepared piece of music and expect cold readings from the script.  Specifics on vocal ranges and available parts can be found on the theater's website,
www.Lofte.com.  Questions regarding the show or the audition process may be sent to Artistic Director Kevin Colbert at LofteDirector@Lofte.com.

EASY, BREEZY AUTOPAY!

Imagine, one less check to write out, one less letter to mail or one less stop in your busy day to drop off the water payment...your schedule could actually become a little less hectic. Wouldn't that be nice?

Murray residents that already enjoy the stream-lined convenience of automatic bank withdrawals for monthly payments on their mortgages, utilities and cars, might want to consider having their water/sewer/trash bill paid in this same manner.


In order for a program of this type to be feasible, there would have to be a fairly high number of households using this option.


Drop a note in with your next water payment or leave a message at Town Hall, 235-2119, so the board can get a good idea of the number of residents interested to make this happen!
