Veterans Day is November 11th, THIS Friday
Veterans Day is THIS Friday
Tell a Veteran thank you this Friday. In fact, thank them any day of the year. They have taken time out their lives, their families lives, and given time to serving their country.
Here are some additional photos from the Salute to Veterans service at St. Pauls United Methodist Church on October 30th.
Randy Romine sang the National Anthem. You can listen to it here on Youtube (I haven't figured out how to insert a YouTube video yet)
Don't forget to attend the Veterans Program at the high school this Friday at 10:00 am and the Elementary at 1:00 pm
Be sure to visit their Facebook page of the GAR Veterans Museum for more photos of the event.
G.A.R. Hall Veterans Museum
If you haven't visited the Museum now it the time. You will be very impressed with what Bonnie Brewer has done. Her passion for our veterans, Elmwood history and genealogy really shine.
Both the high school and elementary have a veterans program on Friday, November 11 and are OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. I try and go every year and am never disappointed. See you there!!
Elmwood Town Happenings
Did you see the house being moved down highway? It turned east by gas station and will be the new home of Tanner Bornemier. Julie sent me the photo. She knows what's going on the east side of town.
Trail Ridge Development
Speaking of new homes, there is dirt work being done on the newest housing development in Elmwood. Twelve homes will be built and many of them have already been sold.
“The area has been annexed, platted and we are moving dirt,” said Ryan Anderson, owner of Tutalkin Construction, co-developer of project with Lou Allgayer.
Dubbed Trail Ridge due to its proximity to the MoPac Trail, the development will establish 12 residential homes on lots ranging in size from one-third an acre to one-half acre in its first phase. Check out their Facebook page for more details and follow what is happening.
In the second phase, another seven homes will be added. Houses in the development will be in the $250,000 and higher price range.
Already, four people have expressed interest in purchasing homes in the development. “That’s good, because we just started moving dirt last week,” Anderson said.
Quonset Bar & Grill
Look who I saw at the newest restaurant in Elmwood? Lou and Sue Allgayer. Lou even posed for a selfie.
See it's not just Julie who does selfies. She has gotten me into the habit. So watch out everyone.
Rumor has it the "Walking Tacos" are amazing and try the fried potatoes, not a curly potato, or a french fry, but delish still the same. Stop in and ask the name. I didn't get what they are calling them.
There was a birthday party happening in the back with a large inflatable jumping pit. Check it out and book your next party.

When you arrive, you will be given a checklist and challenged to locate all the sets. If you are successful, your application will be entered in a drawing for a free Journey into Christmas book.
Don’t forget to check out the Aldrich House garage this year for an additional surprise.

Cass County CASA Advocates Needed!
Cass Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is currently recruiting CASA advocates to speak on behalf of abused and neglected children in Cass County. The next training session is scheduled for January 2017 for five weeks. We are also seeking male volunteers as more than 60% of our children are male.
What does a Court Appointed Special Advocate volunteer do? Each CASA volunteer is screened, trained and completes 30 hours of pre-service training. The training consists of 15 hours of online training and 15 hours of in-person training.
Once trained, CASA volunteers are assigned under the Juvenile Court jurisdiction to speak on behalf of a child to ensure the needs and interests of abused and neglected children are being met.
Who are CASA volunteers? Our active volunteers are individuals from our community who work part-time, full-time or are retired. Volunteers commit to one year with a child, but seldom leave a case until it has been terminated.
Please call Debbie Green, Volunteer Coordinator at (402) 296-9521 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and become a CASA volunteer today. If you would like to learn more information about our program, visit our website at www.casscasa.org
