Volunteer Recognition Annual Meeting
Sunday, February 22nd at 2pm

Attention Lofte family and friends!  If you’ve painted, acted, torn a ticket or made a donation over the past few years, we want to celebrate you!  This year the Lofte’s Volunteer Recognition Celebration will be held on Sunday, February 22nd at 2pm in the afternoon.  After holding the event on a Saturday night for the past few years, we’ve decided to adjust the schedule just a bit to see if even more people can join us.  

With the adjusted time, we will not be serving a full meal, but we will have cake and refreshments to celebrate our 10th season in the new building.  We’ll also be looking forward to the 2016 season announcements.  2016 will be the Lofte’s 40th year!

The Lofte’s Board of Directors and Chairman Jeff Johnston will also present the Lofte’s current financial information and announce the three most valued volunteers in 2014.

No RSVP required.  Please just join us for some fun and fellowship!

“Hilda” Axed.  Open the “Frigidaire!”

Thanks to some licensing disputes at the publishing company in New York City, the Lofte’s 39th season will not open with “Hilda’s Yard.”  While many of us were excited to bring this story of changing family values in the 1960s to the stage, Artistic Director, Kevin Colbert has found a witty and stimulating substitute.  

“Messiah on the Frigidaire,” outlines the story of Elroy, South Carolina as it is thrust into the spotlight when something that looks like the image of Jesus appears on a refrigerator in the trailer park.  The park residents find themselves in a frenzy of conflict and new-found commerce.  Their quiet trailer park turns into a Mecca for miracle-seekers while they themselves go through an evolution themselves.  God surely moves in mysterious ways!  This play has a suggested rating of PG-14.

Auditions for the play will be held on April 6 & 7 at 7pm and call for 3 women, 4 men and 1 boy.

Murray's 4th of July Celebration WILL Continue!

The MURRAY FREEDOM FESTIVAL organization is a group of citizens who want to share the celebration of our country's freedoms and anyone is welcome to join our group.  In order for this event-filled day to happen, some fundraising is planned for the next few months, so keep watching here for updates.  Funds are needed for fireworks, concessions, prizes and more, so please help us in our efforts. 

We also have to rely on financial gifts from private individuals, businesses and other organizations. A gift from you, your civic group or business would greatly help us to achieve our goal in making this an annual event to be proud of. Any donation, large or small is genuinely appreciated.  (We have already received a donation of $500 from a private citizen, so feel free to match it! You may make a deposit at the Murray State Bank to the 'Murray Freedom Festival' account, or if you prefer, please mail a check to, John Hensch, Fundraising Chairman, 508 West Young St., Murray, NE 68409 and thank you, in advance, for your generous contribution!

Front Porch Eatery owner, Jose Sanchez, has agreed to shut down for one day, April 12, 2015, and has donated his place of business in Murray for us to host a free-will donation pancake feed for our cause. So mark your calendar for Sunday, April 12th, to come have pancakes.  In the meantime, stop in for breakfast, (served all day) or lunch until 2 p.m. and be sure to say, 'Thank you', to Jose for his generous contribution!

Our vision is to bring back and even add many other activities including the oozeball games, (mud volleyball), a classic car show, tug-of-war, street dance, smash-a-car, Bingo, parade and activities for the little kids, too.  We're also planning to have raffle tickets for a drawing for 1 lucky person to push the detonater for the starting of the fireworks show! (Oh, pick me, pick ME!!)   

 The nice people at AnyTime Fitness in Plattsmouth have agreed to sponsor a fun run early in the day on the 4th, so if you know any runners, let them know, and walkers can join in the fun, too!  

Also, former Murray resident, Jim Howe, (aka 'Roadkill'), has many fond memories of Murray's celebrations. He now lives at Beaver Lake and has been putting on his own enormous fireworks show at the lake the past few years. (I've seen it and it is great!)  Jim, along with Night Vision Fireworks, has graciously agreed to do Murray's show this year on the 4th and he will still do his personal show for the Lake on the 3rd, so folks in the area will have 2 nights of fantastic fireworks!(Thanks, Jim!)

Our website is up and running.  You'll be able to keep track of the activity-planning as it progresses and even share photos of your own 4th of July festivities in Murray Registration for activities such as the fun run and oozeball will be available online at our website via PayPal or registrants can pay by check.  If using PayPal, you'd choose the 'Friends and Family' tab.  Checks can be mailed to JOHN HENSCH, FUNDRAISING CHAIRPERSON, MURRAY FREEDOM FESTIVAL, 508 W. YOUNG ST., MURRAY, NE 68409.  There will be no refunds on activity registrations. 

Please plan to attend our next meeting and bring a friend on

Wednesday, February 11, 2015,
Murray Town Hall
at 6:30.

Everyone's welcome!

So, pass on the good news and put in your plans to celebrate in Murray this 4th of July!
