Murdock News- July 17, 2019
Welcome to Murdock
The Murdock 4th of July Celebration continues into its 2nd edition. It will be a month-long celebration into all of the activities of the day.
As much as I love the parade, I REALLY love the watermelon at the end of the parade. It's so delicious and there is something about standing in the heat eating cold watermelon with the sweetness dripping down your chin.
Why are these girls wet? They decided to cool off BEFORE watermelon thanks to TJ on the fire truck. I kinda like, okay LOVE watching the kids playing in the water.
The Voglers returned driving their miniature horses. Not ponies, but miniature horses.
Part of what is wonderful is seeing people who return home just for the 4th of July Celebration.
Jamie Sundae and her daughter Logan came back from Ohio to spend the holidays with her Dad Pat Sundae.
Talk about a blast from the past! He recognized me and I had to think a little. I'm sure he could see the wheels spinning. But then we started talking about his Mom and the grocery store in town in the 1990s and how I would go over during lunch and get one of her fresh deli sandwiches.
I'm sure other people would love to see faces of the past.
If you would like to learn more about Murdock and learn more about the people who lived here, the businesses then visit the Murdock Historical Museum. Where is it? Across from the bank, the white building on the corner.
Open Saturday afternoons during the summer and the first Sunday afternoon of the month. Take the kids, there is so much to see, play I spy in the "grocery" store.
Every week I will have a photo from the museum, did you know we had an active railroad going through town, a general store, a barber and much more?
Don't forget you can still Order Peaches & Pears
Peaches and Pears that the Murdock Lions will be selling again this year?
Most people aren't familiar with how much is in a "lug".
Peach lugs are approximately 24 lbs and Pears are approximately 35 lbs.
People can either contact Mike Freyer at 402-867-4228 to order them or place an order during the July 4th parade.
There is a wealth of information on the new Elmwood-Murdock Public Schools website. It is updated on a daily basis by various teachers and department heads.
Pastor Kuhlman is studying in Strasbourg, France at the International Academy of Apologetics Evangelism & Human Rights.

Pirate Summer at the Lofte!
The Lofte Community Theatre, located in Manley, NE, is having several Events this month!
Kicking off “Pirate Summer”, we will be hosting The Jolly Rogers, The Original Singing Pirates of the Midwest from Kansas City on Saturday, July 13th at 7 PM. The Jolly Rogers invites you to join in on the fun as they record their Lofte show for their 30th anniversary CD/DVD release! The Jolly Rogers is a ribald crew of singing-comedy pirates that have proudly been the source of first-rate maritime music for almost 30 years. Locals may remember The JR’s from their run at The Renaissance Faire of the Midlands at Iowa Western Community College (1991-2003). Break out your peg-legs and pirate outfits for a costume contest judged by The JR’s themselves! The Jolly Rogers rate their show a very light PG-13 due to suggestive dialog and heavy-handed and thinly-veiled innuendo. The JR’s are clever and naughty (like Benny Hill), not crass and dirty!
The members of The Jolly Rogers are (left to right) Kurt Hanover as Bloodbard, Cliff Lawson as Devin Blackheart, Chris Berger as Kane, Mark Stahl as Mayhem, and Sean Foree as Bottomless Pete.
The Lofte will also have a Food and Beer Tent, called The Cutthroat Inn, every Saturday from July 13th to August 3rd. (July 13, 20, 27 and August 3rd) beginning at 4:30 PM. The Menu includes Brisket, Smoked Turkey Legs, BBQ Pulled Pork, Grilled Corn-on-the-Cob, plus special Pirate Rum Drinks and Craft Beer.
On July 20th, more Pirates will arrive and we will begin production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s, Pirates of Penzance. The Book and Lyrics by Sir William Schwenck Gilbert, and Music by Sir Arthur Seymour Sullivan.
Set sail with this hilarious farce of sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, dim-witted young lovers, and an eccentric Major-General. Our hopeful story follows young Frederic, an orphan who has mistakenly been apprenticed to a raucous band of pirates. He disavows the pirates' way of life and tries to win over the heart of Major-General Stanley's songbird daughter, Mabel. Complications arise that may prevent the budding romance and lead to the death of 'The very model of a modern Major-General.'
The Lofte cast of 30 actors includes Wade Mumford as The Pirate King, Piper Monson, who just returned from the Jimmy Awards on Broadway will play Mabel, Wendy Allen as Ruth, and Erik Quam as the Major General. Many new Born-in-a-Barn Players are joining the Lofte for the first time: John Celesky, Sam Bass, Jacob Goetz, Dillon Holsteen, Dillon Kirby, Matthew Kischer, Emanuel Meloy, John Kinney, Kameron Monahan, CeCe Hastreiter, Tammy Kruger, Gillian Pearson, Bobbie Ritzman, Kristan Robbins, and Leandra Rodriguez.
Tickets for this event can be purchased by calling the Lofte Community Theatre box office at 402-234-2553, or by visiting the theatre’s website at www.Lofte.org and clicking on “Tickets”.
