~ A good deed never goes un-noticed ~


I received the following email from Pastor Bob Whynn from the First United Methodist Church in Louisville: 

Right after the new year our church decided to start collecting coats and blankets for area shelters.  It was turning out to be a very cold winter and we wanted to do our part.  We put up flyers in the church, sent out e-mails and put a box in the city offices.  The response was incredible.


Within two weeks we had collected over 200 pounds of coats and blankets.
In the next two weeks we collected over 200 pounds more and in the past few weeks we have added at least 300 pounds more.  I do not know how many total coats and blankets were collected but it was enough to stuff an SUV to the brim 3 times!


And we still have more coming in!  Donated items were taken to the Open Door Mission, Lydia House in Omaha and Under His Wings Thrift Store in Plattsmouth.
Thank you very much to all who donated and continue to donate.
This will be an annual event at out church.



This is AMAZING.  They all did a fantastic job.  And I'm sure those coats made lots of people very warm this winter!

What haunts owners of old homes?

Plattsmouth Conservancy to again offer free seminars on restoration of historic homes

They may not manifest right away and the problems that arise vary from hot water or HVAC

systems to siding, windows or a horde of issues that threaten all old home owners, leading

them to wonder, “What have I gotten myself into?”

 In Plattsmouth, 50 percent or more of the homes are at least 50 years old, prompting

Plattsmouth Conservancy to put together a series of seminars designed to help with the

choosing, restoring and maintaining an older home, whether the style is mid-century,

Craftsman, bungalow or Victorian.

There will be a series of 4 seminars. The dates are March 11, April 8, May 6 and June 10 at the

Conservancy office, located at 437-1 Main Street. The time is 6:30-8:30 PM. There will be a

drawing for a door prize at each seminar.

The first in the series will be an overview of things to look for and what to do about them. The

next three seminars will delve into specifics associated with the restoration and maintenance of

the older home. At the end of each presentation, there will be a question and answer period.

Mark your calendars and plan to attend.

Cass County CASA Volunteers Needed!

We are currently recruiting CASA Volunteers for the upcoming training
session scheduled in April 2014.  We only train two classes a year, call and
reserve your spot today?

What does a Court Appointed Special Advocate volunteer do?  Each CASA
volunteer is screened,  trained and completes 30 hours of pre-service
training.  Once trained, CASA volunteers are assigned under the Juvenile
Court jurisdiction to speak on behalf of a child to ensure the needs and
interests of abused and neglected children are being met.

Who are CASA volunteers?  Our active volunteers are individuals from our
community who work part-time, full-time or are retired.  Volunteers commit
to one year with a child, but seldom leave a case until it has been

If I can't be a CASA volunteer, how can I help? In addition to training new
CASA volunteers, we are also in need of administrative services support such
as: filing, data entry and making copies.

Your help directly benefits  the Cass County CASA Program.  A
donor-supported volunteer organization whose mission is to offer
court-appointed volunteer advocacy to children that are abused, neglected
and often find themselves lost in the court system.  Through Cass County
CASA, these children are placed with advocates that speak on their behalf
and know them well enough to make informed recommendations to the judge.
