If you were a bird, and lived on high,
You'd lean on the wind when the wind came by,
You'd say to the wind when it took you away,
"That's where I wanted to go today!"

A.A. Milne, 1882~1956
from 'When We Were Very Young'

THE KIDS NEED YOUR HELP!

Hunger is an evil thing. Without enough good food, you can't think clearly, your immune system becomes compromised and you can become sick more often.

You may donate items at any time through MayThere is a container at Cornerstone Bank, you may take items to Conestoga Elementary School, or call Jill, 402-660-3543, and she'll arrange to have your items picked up at your home.

It's easy to help.  Each time you go to the grocery store, just pick up one extra item for the kids.

*Suggested food items should be somewhat easy for small children to open and prepare:

*Canned Goods,*Granola Bars,*Cereal,*Cereal Bars,*Mac & Cheese,*Tuna or chicken salad with crackers,*Fruit Cups, Bar Soap, Toothpaste/toothbrush, Shampoo/Conditioner, Clothes/Coats  

 THANK YOU!!

quilt

Last summer, a producer from NETV videotaped interviews with Maechelle (Mickie) Clements and Kurk Shrader regarding the Cass County barn quilt project.
In March, NETV is going to air a one hour program called "Patchwork on the Plains". This is a look at the history, family traditions, patriotism and community pride that goes into painted plywood barn quilts. Mickie had a vision to start the barn quilt project in Nebraska and wanted Cass County to be the first Nebr. county to display them. It was made possible through the joint efforts of the Elmwood-Murdock FBLA and art students,students and Kurk Shrader. The Cass County barn quilt website is: http://embarnquilts.weebly.com/

Here are the dates the program airs:

Thurs. 03/16/17, 9:00 pm NET World
Sat. 03/18/17, 3:00 pm NET Create

On Friday, we will be mostly jamming, modulating, singing, dancing, experimenting, sharing, and playing fiddle related instruments.

ARE YOU 55+

and

LOOKING FOR PART-TIME WORK?

The following is an employment opportunity available to older adults in Cass County.

Experience Works is a national, non-profit organization funded by the US Dept of Labor to administer the Senior Community Service Employment Program, which assists people 55 and older in getting updated training to assist in returning to the workforce. This is a federally funded program and offers a no-cost employment service to older adults who qualify.
Once accepted into the program, individuals are placed in a training site in or near their community, where they gain on the job experience while working 20-21 hours/week at $8/hour.
We also help with skill assessments, computer training, resumes, cover letters, job search, etc.
The goal is that through the training and job search assistance we gain help older adults gain good jobs in or around their communities.
