Uncovered Murdock History

Thank you to John Guehlstorff for the Murdock historical and lifestyle photographs.

Corn Crib 011410

We have seen these old wagons on farmsteads and the corncribs, but how many remember unloading corn after harvest? I think I see a corn sheller sitting over to the side. 

John's Grandpa (Ed) was an avid photographer. He would take photos of any event that went on around Murdock. From family reunions to everyday happenings. When he passed his grandson (John E Guelstorff III) inherited his camera along with his photo processing equipment and all of his negatives.  Recently he found some undeveloped negatives of Murdock

Stay tuned in future weeks for more peeks into Murdock history

Trinity Lutheran Murdock Sunday school invites you to donate items to help out the local food bank. 

The Lenten season is a great time to give back to the community. Donation boxes will be in the Fellowship Hall. Items will be delivered to the Elmwood Foodbank which serves the Cass County area.

Items needed: Laundry detergent, paper products, baggies, toilet paper, soap, toothpaste, deodorant. cash donations are also welcome to help with rent or purchase of meat/fresh veggies and fruit.

Take It Or Leave It Pantry

You may have forgotten about the Elmwood Take-it-or-Leave food pantry, but it is even more important than ever. Many in our community are going to have children at home who have depended on school lunches and the BackPack program for weekend supplemental nutrition. 

The free pantry is here to serve our community. It is for neighbors helping neighbors.

Due to the health alerts and the changes in our day-to-day living right now and the restrictions the city of Omaha has placed on how many people can gather at one time we have changed the April 1 JOB FAIR to be a drive-thru job fair instead of a face-to-face hiring event.

We will be having a DRIVE-THRU job fair from 1 - 4 p.m. at the Comfort Inn & Suites at 7007 Grover Street in Omaha.
Simply drive-thru the designated area in the parking lot at the Comfort Inn & Suites at 70th & Grover and you will receive a bag full of job opportunities.

The employers will provide their flyers, applications, brochures, etc. and all the information will be in the bags. You can then go home and go through all of the material and apply with the instructions each employer has provided.

Employers are still hiring and they need you now even more than ever.

Remember you can still find great jobs: JOBS board. Click on the JOBS tab and see all the employers who have jobs posted on the site. Click on the company you are interested in and you will be directed right to their open job postings. Now, you can even click on their logo and be directed right to that company's website. Fast, easy and great jobs!
EBLAST. We send out monthly emails to every registered job seeker about upcoming job fairs in the community. And from time to time employers will provide us information to send out by email to all of the registered job seekers about their open positions. Go to and click on job seeker information and submit your email so you can be added to our database now.
