 I really don’t have a comment on the weather this week. Cold one day – warm the next – rain – snow – wind. You name it, we have had it and will be having more of the same this week.


People celebrating birthdays this coming week will be: Jackie Bates, Kristi Kempkes, Kelsey Haight, Kaelan Brooks and Kara Steward. This must be the month for weddings because we have a number of anniversaries to report: Pam and Gary Brooks, Glenn and Barb Schreiner, Jerry and Beverly Ptacek, Duncan and Grace Ellis, Mr./Mrs. Corey Roeder and Matt and Ann Morris. Congratulations to all of them as they celebrate on their special day.


The Senior Diners met on Tuesday and enjoyed a meal of Chili dog on a bun with a sugar cookie for dessert. They played an Earth Day Trivia game for entertainment. On Thursday they had Asian beef and rice casserole for lunch with grapes for dessert. Their entertainment was a presentation by Wendy Tridel, of Care Patrol of Nebraska, titled “Organizing 101 – Making the Move.”


The Get-to-gether Club met Tuesday, April 10 at Dino’s Restaurant in Lincoln. Denise Mundorf had the lesson on music therapy and history of harps from a Google search and her love for the instrument. She has three of her own. Norma had a health lesson on serving more vegetables and using a plant based diet. Carol and Rita shared their hobbies. New business was slips passed around giving clues to their May Tour. News was shared from Beverly Nisley, who will be celebrating her 80th birthday. They all enjoyed meeting at Dino’s as they were very accommodating in a room just for them.


The Bennet Builders will be making their “Bennet Burgers” in three weeks and are taking orders for them. To order, call Ralph Steward or Ron Maas.


Seven ladies from the church went to the movie, “I Can Only Imagine," on Tuesday evening in Lincoln and reported having a very good time and enjoyed the movie.


The Lamplighters Circle will meet at the church on April 23 at 6:30 p.m. All ladies of the church are welcome to attend and help with the business of the church.


Lauren and Marilyn Schreiner traveled to Crete to attend an IBP meeting for their son, Lloyd, on Monday afternoon.


Quote for the week: “If you can’t be satisfied with what you receive, be thankful for what you’ve escaped.” (Maybe we can apply this to our weather).
