NEEDED ~ CASS COUNTY CASA ADVOCATES!

Cass Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is currently recruiting CASA advocates to speak on behalf of abused and neglected children in Cass County. The next training session is scheduled for January 2017 for five weeks. We are also seeking male volunteers as more than 60% of our children are male.

What does a Court Appointed Special Advocate volunteer do? Each CASA volunteer is screened, trained and completes 30 hours of pre-service training. The training consists of 15 hours of online training and 15 hours of in-person training. Once trained, CASA volunteers are assigned under the Juvenile Court jurisdiction to speak on behalf of a child to ensure the needs and interests of abused and neglected children are being met.

Who are CASA volunteers? Our active volunteers are individuals from our community who work part-time, full-time or are retired. Volunteers commit to one year with a child, but seldom leave a case until it has been terminated.

Please call Debbie Green, Volunteer Coordinator at (402) 296-9521 or email dgreen@casscasa.org and become a CASA volunteer today. If you would like to learn more information about our program, visit our website at www.casscasa.org

The contest was open to children from kindergarten through eighth grade. Members of the Nebraska Art Teachers Association judged the entries and chose the 12 winners:

“I am very pleased with the response to Draw Your Dreams and thank every child who submitted a piece of artwork. The children’s imaginations, creativity, and sense of purpose were evident in their pieces of art,” said Nebraska State Treasurer Stenberg, Trustee of NEST. “We hope this scholarship money helps the 12 winners achieve their dreams and encourages their parents to save even more.”

“NEST 529 College Savings is always striving to come up with unique ways to help families save for college. It’s gratifying to tie our mission into a fun, creative contest like this,” said Deborah Goodkin, Managing Director, Savings Plans, First National Bank of Omaha. “We are confident that every student who entered the contest will work to turn dreams into realities.”

SCANDANAVIAN MUSIC CONCERT

Greenblatt & Seay's Schoolhouse Performance Series features a concert of Scandinavian music on Sunday, November 13, at 2:30 PM, in the Old Avoca, Nebraska Schoolhouse. Greenblatt & Seay and Friends will be playing a variety of instruments, including fiddle, guitar, hammered dulcimer, recorders, pennywhistles, and the nyckelharpa. The nyckelharpa is the official keyed fiddle of Sweden, and has 16 strings.

Greenblatt & Seay have been playing and singing together since the night they met, decades ago. Their performance on November 13 will include the championship fiddling styles of Deborah Greenblatt, and the fancy whistle-playing of David Seay.

The concert will be downstairs in the 1925 brick schoolhouse, and followed by light refreshments, and a chance to chat and even jam with the performers. Avoca is in southern Cass County, Nebraska, on the 13 C Spur, one mile south of Highway 34.

Admission is $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for students and senior citizens, and $1.00 for children. Seating is limited.

For more information, write to Greenblatt & Seay, The Old Schoolhouse, P.O. Box 671, Avoca, Nebraska, 68307, or call 402-275-3221, or e-mail them atdebby@greenblattandseay.com.

The historic Old Avoca Schoolhouse has been the home of the Schoolhouse Performance Series since 1990. Music lessons, workshops, fiddle camps, and field trips are offered by Schoolhouse residents, Greenblatt & Seay, and are available by appointment.

2016 10 12 LOFTE Vets Day eagle

VETERANS DAY SALUTE

Sunday, November 13

2:00 pm

Free!

The Lofte works hard to honor our military servicemen and women each year. We count ourselves lucky to live in a country where freedom is protected by heroes.

On Sunday, November 13, the Lofte Community Theatre will help to celebrate Veterans Day by showcasing a free concert by the Southeast Nebraska Community Band. 

 
The SNCB is made up of individuals from 11 different counties, some of whom drive 70 miles to practice. Some have their roots playing with military bands in the Army or Air Force. Others are former music teachers, while still others just have a love of performing. Please note, the band is always looking for new members! They ask that if you are interested in learning more about the group,  to please speak with one of them immediately after the concert.

Bring the family. Bring your friends. Bring your favorite veteran. This is an inspirational event best enjoyed with a large group.

2016 10 12 LOFTE Lunch w Santa MOUSE

.

LUNCH WITH SANTA!

December 4, 11 & 18

12:00 pm

$20 per person* (*price not inclusive of show ticket)

You better not pout.
You better not cry.
Put your napkins in your laps,
I'm telling you why.
Santa Claus is hosting a luncheon at the Lofte!

The Lofte's Christmas play this year is a show specifically geared for children. Ken Ludwig's script, 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, is not the traditional 19th-century tale that you're used to. This production involves a stirring mouse, his human friend, Emily, a sword fight, a squirt gun and Jolly Old St. Nick himself!

In coordination with this special holiday event, the Lofte is holding a special fundraiser where children of all ages can meet Santa and the rest of the cast. You will have the opportunity to eat a catered lunch right on stage, visit with Santa and even get your pictures taken with the big guy himself.

This special event is being held at noon just prior to the Sunday matinees. Advance reservations are required. This would be a great event for a multi-generational family or as a company outing. Be good for goodness sake and make your reservations today!
