AllYouNeedIsLove invite

Greetings! St. John the Baptist Catholic School has been a constant source of faith-centered education in the Plattsmouth area for 130 years. Through the efforts of parents, parishioners, and our generous community, an education at St. John the Baptist School has been made possible for generations of students since its inception in 1884.
Our largest fundraiser of the year, the Annual Spring Dinner Benefit, is fast approaching. This year’s theme is “All You Need is Love” and is scheduled for April 25, 2015 with social hour beginning at 5:15 and dinner at 6:45. The fun-filled event includes both a live and silent auction.

We would appreciate your support in helping us promote this event on community websites and newsletters. I've attached a digital file of the invite as well as another graphic (All You Need is Love Heart Icon) that may be easier to use digitally.

Lofte Places Second in State Competition!

Manley, NE [February 22, 2015] - The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley recently competed in the Nebraska Association of Community Theatres One-act play festival.  The competition takes place every other year and this February 14 it was held in the capitol city at the Lincoln Community Playhouse.  The Lofte’s production of “These Shining Lives” received a number of awards and ranked second in the state contest.  First prize was awarded to Beatrice Community Players.  

“These Shining Lives” told the story of the Radium Girls at the turn of the century.  Their job was to decorate clock faces with radioactive radium paint.  While many of the women who were employed in the industry died or became ill with radiation poisoning, management and the courts continued to deny them recourse, stating that the women were not in danger.  These women appealed their case all the way to the Supreme Court where they finally won, thus changing Illinois labor laws forever.  The play outlines the women’s friendship and legal struggle during the fight for their very lives.

Directed by Allison Bauers of Louisville, the cast included Melinda Mead of Plattsmouth who won Best Actress.  Kevin Colbert of Weeping Water was awarded Best Supporting Actor.  Janet Sorensen of Elmwood won for Best Costuming, and the cast shared the award for Best Set.  Others in the cast included Sharon Kryger, Doug Rothgeb, Maylea, Chase and Larry Bauers, Karen and Jordan Clay, George Strassler and Shawna Manley.  

“These Shining Lives” will play for the public at the Lofte Community Theatre on Saturday, February 28 at 7:30pm.  There is no admission price or required reservations, but a free will donation will be accepted to help offset the competition expenses.

Dress in Blue Day (an awareness campaign for colon cancer awareness)  is Friday, March 6, 2013

This year I’m sending out several links to increase awareness and prevention of colon cancer.

What is YOUR risk?  Take the colon cancer risk quiz:

Share this  IMPORTANT information  by passing it forward… to your staff, employees and other collegues; to your families, extended families and to your friends regarding screenings.

Colon cancer is 90% curable if detected early and it warrants forwarding the information to anyone you know of who would benefit.

Attached is the fact sheet and a family health tool from the Colon Cancer Alliance

Please take the time to forward the information, put it on a lunch table, break room, bulletin board;  you may help to save someone’s life.
