Murdock Nebraska News
Thank you Julie!
First, let me thank Julie Anderson for her nine years of contributing to the newsletter.
I have really big shoes to fill as she has set the bar very high as the Lake Wobegon of Nebraska.
Her humor, unending energy and dedication not only to this newsletter but the the Elmwood-Murdock community is admirable.
Next, let me introduce myself. I am Dawn Romine (aka Hromanik for those who might know my kids) and I have been married to my husband Randy for five years. I have lived, worked and worshiped in the Elmwood-Murdock community for 25 years. The first fifteen years in Murdock and the last ten years in Elmwood.
My three kids attended Elmwood-Murdock school all twelve years. My husbands kids attended high school and graduated as Elmwood-Murdock Knights.
I LOVE my community and think it's the best place to raise a family and live. My kids were in the EM band and choir and I LOVE our music program. I've sat at hundreds of football games, chased the marching band down the street with my video camera and now we are empty nesters.
I am passionate about many things mainly photography. If you see a car stop suddenly in front of a barn to take a photo, that would be me. I take photos of barns, storms, my puppies, and just about anything that moves.
I also love photo editing, social media, my dogs and my family. On any given day that order might change. I have a blog, or two, or three and don't have enough hours in the day.
The Community Lost a Great Man
It is with a heavy heart that I write my first post.
On September 17, we lost a very valued member of the community. Delton Bolles, went to be with the Lord, and his bride and love of his life, Connie.
He was a long time member of the Murdock Volunteer Fire Department and will be greatly missed by family and friends.
Visitation will be at Fusselman's in Weeping Water on Monday, September 19 from 6-9 and family greeting from 6-7. Funeral will be Tuesday, September 20, at 10:00 at Trinity Lutheran Church, outside of Murdock on 310th and Church Road.
Burial will be at the Catholic Cemetery outside of Manley, followed by lunch at the Murdock Fire Hall. Please keep his children, Kelly, Kristy and Jeff, as well as their spouses and children in your thoughts.
Delton was a one in a million guy and he will be greatly missed.

Annual Market to Market Relay Race
October 8 - 9:15 am
The exciting Market to Market Relay Race is coming soon and the youth group of Trinity Lutheran Church is participating by volunteering and using this as a fundraiser.
We need volunteers on 310th Street to hand out water, direct traffic and show small town hospitality. Our exchange point takes a lot of volunteers as we have to direct/control traffic on 310th St, get the next runner ready fro their team exchange and watch for runners crossing the road.
Sign up to volunteer here Just click for a "ticket" and select Exchange Point 10
Teams of runners will leave from Lincoln and race to Omaha. Are they nuts? Maybe, but it's a lot of fun to watch, many are dressed in costrumes.
The youth groups receives a donation and you get a free hat and a fun day with friends.

Tailgate Party with Hanks Ribs returns to Elmwood-Murdock
You've heard about them, you've eaten them, you dream about them. Yes they're back on September 23 at the Varsity Football Game. It's a fundraiser for the EM Post Prom kids, you know the gala in the spring. So help these kids out and feed your belly.
The Elmwood-Murdock Football team has kicked off their season with gusto! Thank you in advance to all the parents, students and fans who cheer them on each week.
Here are the statistics for the 1st three games of the season for those sports statistics junkies.
Did you know that Elmwood-Murdock Varsity Football games can be watched live on STRIVE TV.
Obviously it's best if you can make it to a game, but if you live out of town and still want to cheer on the Knights you can do so from the comfort of your living room, or any computer.

Attention High School Students
If you know of a student interested in majoring in Animal Science (I was one of them) this is a great event for them to attend.
ANIMAL SCIENCE ANNUAL OPEN HOUSE

Animal Science Complex UNL-East Campus
Did you know you could attend the University of Nebraska and get a degree focused on companion animals, horses or livestock? Or maybe you just want to take a few classes to learn more about these?
You need to come to the University of Nebraska Animal Science Open House on October 3, 2016 from 6 – 8 p.m. to learn more. You can get questions answered and find out more about the vast opportunities, classes that are offered, careers and much more.
During this Open House you will get some hands-on experiences, view demonstrations and meet with faculty and students involved in UNL’s equine, companion animal and livestock programs. Also you will get to find out more about the various animal-related organizations such as Equestrian team, Livestock and Horse Judging teams, SEECA (Students for the Education of Exotic and Companion Animals), Pre-Vet club, and Block and Bridle.
During the open house, you will get to travel through the Animal Science building on a bit of a “scavenger hunt” to seek out facts related to our classes and majors. Be sure to mark your calendars to not miss this night at the UNL Animal Science Complex, UNL East Campus!
Please see the attached press release and flyer. A map for directions to the Animal Science Complex and parking is also attached, or you can click on this link to access a wireless version.
