Happy Halloween!!

I really appreciate the people who go to the extra effort to decorate for all the holidays and Halloween especially.

It has been a holiday for the kids and it's totally OKAY if it's commercialized and gaudy. Christmas, on the otherhand, I like more "sophisticated" and it's more of a religious holiday.

But Halloween, go all out with ghosts, inflatables, scary animation and I'm all for it!!

NEXT is Veterans Day...

Please send me photos and local stories of active and retired veterans so I can highlight their contributions.

There are numerous Veterans Day celebrations and recognitions I will feature the next couple of weeks, but I really want your stories too.

NEEDED: Photos and stories of local veterans

Send your email to editor@elmwoodnebraska.com

One of my favorite joys of growing up was trick or treating and we are lucky where we live in that our neighbor LOVES Halloween and LOVES to decorate. He has a haunted Pirate display complete with animatronics. 

That is the draw to our corner of town as everyone has to see what is new in his yard.

Salute to Veterans at St. Paul Methodist Church

This past Sunday was the Salute to Veterans service at St. Pauls United Methodist Church in Elmwood. 

Two quilts, made by the Oxbow Quilters were given to Ed and Jace Blunt by Bonnie Brewer in a very teary ceremony.

Several displays of veterans from the Elmwood-Murdock area were also on display and below are just a few photos of the event.

In the grand tradition of a church dinner fried chicken, pork loin and all the fixings were served by the ladies of the church. If you went away hungry it was your own fault. 

I don't think anyone went away hungry. It was standing room only and the organizers did a fantastic job honoring our veterans.

There is a series of local activities honoring our veterans between October 30th and November 13th. Be sure to put them on your calendar so you won't miss them. 

The Oxbow Quilters were honored to be able to award Quilts of Valor to this father-son duo - Ed and Jase Blunt. Ed served in Vietnam in 1968-1969; Jase has had tours in Iraq in 2003 and 2008, as well as a tour in Afghanistan in 2013.
