Monday evening the Board of Directors of the Rosehill Cemetery Association met in the fellowship hall at the Douglas United Methodist Church.  There was a recap of projects completed in the last year. A report on the Memorial Day Dinner and the donations received. It was noted that the donations and the attendance at the dinner are both dropping. That puts projects including mowing in jeopardy. Wilma Phillips was elected to fill the vacancy on the board. Officers for the coming year will be Connie Hartman, president; Bonnie Vollman, vice president and Ardys Brugman, secretary-treasurer.


Saturday morning the Star Care helicopter came down to train the Emergency Services on what they can offer and to show the community the helicopter and its equipment.  The crew of a pilot and two nurses gave instruction on given them direction to the emergency and how to make use of their services.  The landing was observed by the EMTs and the general public.  The children along with the adults took it all in.


Village Clean-Up 2018 continues through June 16.  There is still time to rid your household of unwanted things that doesn’t go in the regular garbage pick-up.


Merlin and Connie Hartman attended the Lofte Theatre Saturday evening.  The Born-In-a-Barn Players did a masterful job of presenting “The Miracle Worker.”  There was not a dry eye in the house when the curtain came down.  To think that your friends and neighbors can do such a wonderful job in a small ‘local’ (Manley NE) theater of bringing such a moving story to you is just amazing.
