The EM Cheer Squad Annual Plant Sale is still happening!

It's just going to look a little different this year than in previous years.

Unfortunately, due to the current Directed Health Initiative, we can only offer pre-order sales and will not have any plants available to purchase during the pick-up times.

In the past week, people have volunteered to shop for those who need to stay at home due to age or are immune suppressed. Many restaurant businesses are adapting and changing their business model to deliver or offer curbside service. In response, customers are going out of their way to support their efforts. In fact, last Friday The Quonset was sold out of the Fish Special when I called. 

After this, when the travel restrictions are lifted we will that more grateful every time we eat at a local restaurant, attend communion

Uncovered Murdock History

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

Ed Twins and others 011410

Ed, the twins, and others. That is all the description I have of this picture. Does anyone know who the twins names? Seems they were all just sitting in the grass, not a picnic or anything. Just sitting.

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

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.

A major goal for the CassLocal.com project, was to make small business support as convenient as possible. If you have a small business, you know that job one, is to make your businesses as simple, and convenient as possible to interact with.

The Corona $1200 checks, are starting to arrive this week. We know that some fortunate Nebraskans are not desperate and might consider helping struggling small businesses, Churches and Non-Profit organizations with a donation or better yet buying Gift Cards. We encourage restaurants, bars, basically any small businesses to get a Gift Card account from companies like Square. This is a convenient way for fortunate Nebraskan's to inject life saving cash into the business, in echange for Goods and Services later when the storm passes. None of this is possible, unless you add your business or Organization to www.CassLocal.com free. Any questions? TEXT VM/402-968-0821
