Rehearsals for the library’s production of “Our Town” on October 23, 24, and 25th.   All of the performances are free but there will be a freewill donation passed to offset the costs of the Big Read itself.  My daughter, Kendall and I are both in the production and it has been a really great experience. 


The Plattsmouth Elementary School Fundraiser Envelopes are due back Wednesday, September 23rd to your child’s classroom.  Please don’t forget to return all orders and payments on that date.  The proceeds go to support the PTO organization and help to pay for the field trips taken by the students among other things!

The Big Read Kickoff is Sunday, September 27th from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Rhylander Park.  Come join us for lemonade, popcorn, and games to celebrate the great books, “Our Town” and “The Bridge of San Luis Rey.”  We will be giving away copies of both books that day.  In case of rain, we will be at the library in the auditorium.

Church of the Holy Spirit is holding their annual Fall Festival the same day, so stop by both and enjoy the fall weather (while it lasts!) We are also very excited that on October 14th, we will be Lincoln having an official state proclamation signed by the Vice Governor for our participation in the Big Read.

Some updates on regular features:

Keep checking the Plattsmouth Journal for the “Adopt Me” pictures and descriptions of pets that need homes.  The “Happy Tails” organization is doing a great job of getting the word out about this much needed service in our town.  What an improvement, I was glad to see them marching in the parade at Karnival as well.  Congratulations to Sue Baker, Animal Control Officer, and everyone else involved!

Judy James, USDA Rural Development Agent, is at the library every Thursday for assistance with buying a home among other services. 

Open Hearts Kitchen is open every Thursday night at the First United Methodist Church from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.  No questions asked just a good home cooked meal with fellowship.

Tobacco Free Cass County was successful in passing the bill regarding no smoking in County Facilities, unanimously.   Congratulations to Joan Friedman and everyone else involved in that step in improving everyone’s health.

Let’s keep supporting our favorite fall sports teams and bands-GO BLUE DEVILS!

Please see the attached flyer for the Waffleman in Elmwood on October 11th-looks good to me!



Have a great week and see everyone next week.
