DOG & CAT PET LICENSES

There's no denying it.  We love our pets!  We feed and water them well, give them adequate shelter and spoil them like crazy with toys and treats. 
However, for the protection and health of all, and to further protect your pets,
PER VILLAGE CODE
you are required to get them vaccinated, licensed and pay the full fees due by Tuesday, May 1st.  In the event they accidentally get out the door and off your property, chances of them being returned to you sooner are much greater with proper tagging and identification.

Your pet's license will be valid for one year, from May 1, 2018 - April 30, 2019.

Fees for EACH cat or dog: 
Spayed/neutered: $11.25 
NOT spayed/neutered: $26.25

If you own more than six (6) dogs, a kennel license is mandatory. 
Call the Village Office, 402-235-2119, for more kennel information.

Due to an unprecedented number of complaints, the Village of Murray will be strictly enforcing our animal license and violation codes. If your animals are not licensed, by Tuesday, May 1st, you will be issued a citation and be charged the designated fines, and, if not paid, face prosecution.

Thank you!

FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE, CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD ANIMAL LICENSE FORM.

MURRAY CLEAN-UP DAY
May 5th, 2018
Murray residents only.

During these last days of cold weather, get ready for spring cleaning and get rid of the things you no longer want or need.

To make the task much easier, separate your items first, then when you're ready to clean, all the unwanted items will be out of your way.

(Remember, Murray garage sales will be May 18-19. See details elsewhere in this Newsletter.)

If you choose to donate your items, make sure they're clean and/or in workable condition.

When the weather (finally) gets nice enough to work outside, do the same in the garage, storage shed and yard.

During Murray Clean-Up Day, you can get rid of larger items that won't fit in your trash can.

Keep watching here for more details of Clean-Up Day.

UKULELE

Ukulele Workshop and Concert

Greenblatt & Seay’s Schoolhouse Performance Series features a Ukulele Workshop and Concert on Sunday, April 8, at 2:30 PM. Bring your own uke to this hands-on workshop geared for those who know enough first position chords to be comfortable playing at ukulele play-alongs and are anxious to learn to play up the neck.

The overall goal is to demystify a few basic music theory concepts. Using play-along exercises and example tunes we’ll step by step our way thru a little elemental musical math. Those who choose to leave their ukes at home can enjoy the spectacle of good folks striving for advancement, plus the performance/demos of assorted folk and classic rock tunes played on a variety of ukes. This workshop should last about 90 minutes.

This event will be downstairs in The Old Avoca Schoolhouse, and followed by light refreshments, and a chance to chat and even have a jam session. 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 at debby@greenblattandseay.com.

MUSICAL INSTRUMENT LENDING PROGRAM

The Great Plains Bluegrass and Old-Time Music Association has a wonderful instrument lending program, so please share this information with folks that you know. Here is the information from Jim Wood:

"We are in full swing looking for kids ages 5 to 16 who want to learn to play a bluegrass/old time instrument! 
The instruments we are lending include guitar, fiddles of different sizes, banjo, and mandolin, and have recently been gifted with a fine Dobro, thanks to Doug Van Horn. 
These instruments may be borrowed for a year as long as the learner has a mentor from our music association. 
The mentor will be selected by the student and parent. 
This mentor will give the Instrument lending committee a report of progress every three months."

If you wish to get an application to this Lending program, please contact Jim Wood at 402-397-4673 or jkwood@unomaha.edu.

GED - Adult Education

Plattsmouth’s Adult Education Program, including Adult Education, GED, and English Language classes, have a spacious new home in the First Presbyterian Church CE Building at 701 Chicago Avenue, Plattsmouth. The CE Building is the smaller of the Church’s two buildings.

“We have two large and comfortable rooms for classes this school year. We feel very happy to have room to move around easily and keep learning materials where students can readily use them. We have additional student-use computers as well,” said Program Director Tallie VanWesten. “We are grateful for this excellent new space and the First Presbyterian Church’s welcome.”

Classes are held Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to noon and from 6:30 to 9 p.m. each week.  Orientation for the morning class will begin at 9:30 a.m. and continue until noon. Evening class orientation begins from 6:30 to 9 p.m. This is a good time to complete the required paperwork, set up your computer-study accounts, and share your learning goals. Teachers will be available to answer questions during orientation. New students and returning students should attend orientation. Get your school year off to an excellent start at orientation.

Morning and evening classes at the same times listed above.

For more information about Adult Education, polishing your math, language, science and social studies skills; GED classes and testing; and English language classes; call Program Director Tallie Van Westen at 402-296-3174 Ext. 2315.

Classes are free. Everyone is welcome. Start your adult education classes in our new location. Now is the time!
