MOTHER'S DAY

This Sunday is Mother's Day so, don't you see,
The children were worried, as worried could be.
"We haven't a penny," said Cuddles to her brother,
"To buy any flowers for our sweet mother."

"I'll tell you," said Tuckie, "I've thought very hard.
We'll gather some flowers right out of our yard."
They picked a few tulips, some bridal wreath, too,
And one dandelion that they thought would do.

And then little Cuddles said: "Now let me think.
We'll tie them together with ribbons of pink."
They gave them to mother and she was so glad,
She said, "They're the prettiest I've ever had!"

"I'll wear them to church and the people will say,
'Oh where did you get such a lovely bouquet?'
I'll tell them, 'It's Mother's Day, don't you see?
My dear little children just made it for me.'"

Before you hit your first Murray garage sale on Saturday, May 21st, stop for a tummy-pleasing breakfast at the Conestoga elementary school, 104 E. High St., between 7 and 11 a.m. 
 

 The Freedom Festival crew will be serving up some hot pancakes, biscuits and gravy, sausage, applesauce, orange juice and coffee to get you ready for your busy day.

Your free-will, tax-deductible donation will help with expenses for the annual 4th of July celebration in Murray.

(Murray garage sales start on Friday, May 20th, but the pancake feed is only on Saturday, the 21st.)

Thank you!

 
 
 
2016 GRAND MARSHAL ribbon
 
The Freedom Festival is seeking nominations for 'Grand Marshal' for this year's 4th of July event.
 

The Grand Marshal nominee should be someone who has had a positive influence in and around the surrounding area, not just in Murray. Whether by his/her volunteerism, patriotism or general contribution to society, this person could be a co-worker, teacher, good neighbor, or just a kind-hearted friend who helps to make our part of the world a better place in which to live.

Nominees will be considered at a meeting in June, (date to be decided), of the Freedom Festival. The public will have the opportunity to vote for this year's Grand Marshal at that time.  The nominee with the most votes will then be notified and will be asked to honor the festival by leading the parade on the 4th.
 
If you would like to submit someone's name for consideration, please send their name and contact information along with a summary of their qualifications to the Freedom Festival, RE: Grand Marshal, P.O. Box 244, Murray, NE 68409.  You must include your own name and contact information.

 

Thank you!
