2nd ANNUAL FUN RUN FUNDRAISER
for 
MURRAY FIRE DEPT 

Donations for prizes are needed for the top run finishers in male, female and youth categories.
Ideas would be gift cards or monies to purchase awards or prizes.

Kids, ask your group, Scouts, 4-H, church youth group, or just a bunch of your friends to volunteer to cheer the runners on! 
It is a 'hilly' run so runners appreciate the encouragement!

Food and beverages are needed to supply the hungry racers after the race.

Also, can we get any volunteers to set up and tear down the course with cones, tables and water, etc.?

Spread the word by posting to your social pages and sharing with friends and family!

If you want to be part of this event in any way, please contact Theresa McClatchey at bradandtheresa@gmail.com or 402-651-6068.

Thanks so much!

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.
