Vacation Bible School
Last week more than 35 local children participated in the 2018 Vacation Bible School. The theme was Jonah and the Whale.
What did they do?
Made crafts, fished for men, learned the "secret" Christian code (fish), played games, produced a play for the community, AND they HAD FUN!!

It’s out with the old and in with the new at Murdock, Nebraska.
MURDOCK PRIDE is out…gone…deleted but in with the new…MURDOCK IMPROVEMENT TEAM or M.I.T. for short.
This is the replacement name but with the same mission statement to inspire others to volunteer time/ talent/ support of projects which improve the community of Murdock.
Our goal is to provide smiles to those who live here or who pass through downtown Murdock through a variety of events. It is hoped that all past events like the scarecrows, Christmas in Murdock decorations, spring flowers, etc. will continue.
There is great enthusiasm among the young adults in the community who have volunteered with the town clean-up prior to the 4th of July celebrations. Keep tuned for upcoming great opportunities for Murdock with this kind of spirit in action.
Thank-you and much appreciation to all who helped and continue to help in big ways and in little ways.
Mark Saturday, August 25th on your calendar for a BIG CLEAN-UP DAY with an opportunity for you to get your clutter to the dumpsters which will be in town.
Watch for more details!

Can a Splash Pad at the Murdock Park be in the Future?
What do you think? The idea has been tossed out there.
The MURDOCK PRIDE group is now looking into the possibility.
There is funding assistance. The Murdock ballpark brings thousands of people each summer for ball games and this would be a fantastic way to improve our town.
GREAT IDEA for a Future MURDOCK PLAYGROUND!
It's been many many years since the playground set was built by the school. Over 25 years actually. There is grant money to build new parks in our communities.
Who thinks this would be a fit?
LINCOLN, Neb. — Grant money is available for recreation facilities hoping to add things like ballfields, splash pads and picnicking areas across Nebraska.
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is accepting grant applications for parks and other outdoor recreation facilities and amenities promoting outdoor recreation.
The grants are funded by the Land and Water Conservation Fund, a program administered by the National Park Service for outdoor recreation projects. Eligible projects include, but are not limited to, ballfields, soccer fields, swimming pools, picnicking facilities, playgrounds, pool renovations, splash pads, park acquisitions and development, and park-related support facilities.
All projects must encourage outdoor recreation. Project sponsors must be a political subdivision, such as cities, county governments or Natural Resource Districts. The LWCF provides reimbursable matching grants for up to 50 percent of the project costs.
The LWCF was established by Congress in 1964 to ensure access to outdoor recreation resources for present and future generations and to provide money to governments to purchase land, water, and wetlands to benefit all. The primary source of revenue for the LWCF is from federal oil and gas leases on the Outer Continental Shelf.
Grant applications must be submitted by Sept. 7, 2018. Information and application materials are available at outdoornebraska.gov/lwcf.

2018 County Fair Quilt Raffle

2018 Cass County Fair books will be available in May, but start thinking about the Special Contests entries now. We have the BEST County Fair in the State, hands down.
Not only is it a totally free fair, but there is something for everyone.
You just can't do and see everything. Start practicing your appetizers, snickerdoodle cookies, pumpkin pies now. It's a lot of fun to sit and watch the judging in the Open Class Building and the crowd gets bigger and bigger every year.

Work on N-63 Alvo North Realignment
March 15, 2018 (Lincoln, Neb.) — Weather permitting, work is scheduled to continue the week of March 19 on N-63, between Alvo and I-80, according to the Nebraska Department of Transportation.
Knife River, LLC of Sioux City, Iowa has the $11,758,926 contract. Work will include realignment of N‑63, culverts and box culverts, and wetland mitigation. This will be the second of two phases of work.
During this phase, N-63 will be closed to traffic from Reference Post 4+20 (Alvo) to Reference Post 9+68 (Church Road). A marked detour will be in place along I-80 to N-66 to N-50 to US-34 for southbound traffic and along US-34 to N-50 to N-66 to I-80 for northbound traffic. This portion of the project is anticipated to be completed in November 2018.
The Department’s project manager is Jesse De Los Santos of Lincoln. Motorists are reminded to drive cautiously through work zones and along detours.
Every week we have between 5-8 vendors. We are starting to see weekly regulars to stop by and get fresh produce, baked items, and bread.
The local gardens are starting to produce and there is some amazing looking squash and cucumbers.
There was fresh local zucchini, cucumbers, and herbs. I hear next week there will be fresh green beans. So get there early. Many items sell out quickly.
Some customers have even had requests for special jams and jellies. Stop by this week to taste test and purchase "Corn Cob Jelly" and "Watermelon Jelly"
EVERY SATURDAY 8:00 am-Noon
The Farmer's Market will be open from June to October and anyone is welcome to participate.
There is no sign-up sheet or a fee...just show up and set up and sell your items.
