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.

Tickets are $65 per person and can be purchased thru April 12. Anyone interested in purchasing tickets can do so by contacting one of our event co-chairs:
Deb Walton (402-660-8030)
Amber Shawhan (402-575-7707)

Thanks so much for your support and help in promoting our school's event. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me (or call my cell number also listed above). Event details can also be found in the attached pdf of the invitation

 Great American Cleanup
Keep Cass County Beautiful, an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, is announcing the launch of the 17th annual Great American Cleanup. Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup is the country’s largest community improvement program that kicks off each spring and engages more than 4 million volunteers in more than 20,000 communities nationwide. The emphasis of the GAC program is from March 1- May 31, but cleanups can occur anytime during the year.
In 2014, KCCB provided supplies for 11 clean-ups in the county. Thanks to the hard work of 170 adult and youth volunteers and 427 hours of labor, 129 large bags of trash were collected in Cass County along with painting projects, weed pulling, tree and flower plantings.
Keep Cass County Beautiful will again provide trash bags and loan banners, safety vests, gloves and some pick-up tools (while supplies last) for clean-up events. KCCB will partner with local school groups, scouts, civic and church organizations to plan volunteer events that include litter clean-ups, special recycling events, planting red flowers for a "Grow Big Red" garden, increased recycling collections, tree plantings, clothing collections, and more.
We appreciate your efforts to lead a Great American Cleanup last year and hope you will consider organizing another GAC this year. Please contact me soon if you would like to reserve a supply of garbage bags, gloves, etc. If you are no longer the contact person for this information, please notify me.
Thank you for all you do to keep Cass County beautiful!
