Happy Day after St. Patrick’s Day to everyone! Hopefully everyone got to enjoy corn beef and cabbage-one of my favorite meals!   Kind of a quiet week except for a couple of big school related events and a fun night at the library!

DINNER AND A MOVIE, 1930s Style for all ages - Come to the Plattsmouth Public Library on Saturday (3/21) at 4pm for an old-fashioned soup kitchen supper while viewing the classic movie "The Grapes of Wrath". Children will enjoy a sack lunch and depression era activities while watching "Kit Kittridge", a light-hearted film about the 1930s. This event, free of charge, is sponsored by the Plattsmouth Chautauqua Committee and the Friends of the Library. For more information call Pat at 402-298-8378. This is the first of five pre-Chautauqua events leading up to the Chautauqua in June.

Mr. PHS is Friday (3/20) in the Plattsmouth High School Auditorium. This year's theme is "Disney." Performances begin at 7pm. Tickets at the door are $6.00. Mr. PHS is sponsored by Renaissance at Plattsmouth High School. Come prepared for topnotch entertainment and laughs galore.  Diane Ulrich is a friend of mine and I know this is going to be a lot of fun!

The Scholastic Bookfair is going on at the Plattsmouth Elementary School starting tonight going through tomorrow evening for the duration of parent teacher conferences.  This year is a new activity called “Build A Book” for parents and children to work together making their own book. This activity is done with a kit from Scholastic and they are very cool-I will be leading the group tonight with Chris Souter from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  Free popcorn is also going to be provided this year. The Book Fair proceeds support the Parent Teacher Organization which so generously pays for field trips and other special activities at the school.   So stop in, add to your child’s library, and have fun all at the same time!

As always, there will be plenty of fish fries or special dinners to choose from on Friday night during this Lenten season.  I have friends who visit a different place every week for the variety, great way to support many organizations and eat well at the same time.
