Lots of events to discuss this week-

Plattsmouth Community Schools registration will be on Wednesday, July 15 and Thursday, July 16 from 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Middle School Gym.   Please bring any medical records necessary and free/reduced lunch applications.  Also any overdue or lost books may be turned in at the time.  Information tables about Pop’s Place and the PTO will also be there!  First day of school for first through fourth grade is Thursday, August 13th and Kindergartners on Tuesday, August 18th.  

The Plattsmouth Public Library has also received “The Big Read Grant” again from the National Endowment for the Arts.  This year’s activities will be focused around the books, “Our Town” and “the Bridge of San Luis Rey.”  We will be holding auditions for a production of “Our Town” and that information will be coming soon!  We are very excited about doing this again and look forward to seeing everyone at the events.

Congratulations to everyone involved in retiring the Plattsmouth Fitness Center Debt over the past five years!  That is a great achievement and reflects the dedication and hard work of the citizens of our community!

Thanks to Barb and Don Story for their generosity in running the Dairy Queen for the last 37 years.  They have always donated coupons to the Summer Reading Program and King Korn Karnival would not be the same without the giant ice cream cone.   Enjoy your “retirement” and have a “sweet” life together.
