Elmwood Nebraska News

It's cold, it's icy and I'm not getting out unless forced too. Is that the way you feel? That's me. Yes I have become my Mother. Fear of falling has entered my brain and the longing for the warm summer sun has already kept in.

I'm cozy in my house with my dogs. Yes, I have two dogs, kids are all gone. So, with that being said, I'm not out and about town, yes shame on me!! SOOOO, that means I need your updates even more. 

Remember to send me community updates and news. I need Volleyball news, school news and photos of Christmas lights! Email your church announcements, community, business and school news to editor@elmwoodnebraska.com by Sunday night.

Honoring Girls Scouts in February

Nebraska author Bess Streeter Aldrich was known to teach cooking classes to neighborhood girls and, of course, was an advocate of reading and writing. It is with this knowledge, that the Aldrich Board has decided to honor Girls Scouts during February by letting them have a free tour. ( Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska) There will be an exhibit of vintage dolls, Barbies, and tea sets on display, too.

The Aldrich House is open on Saturdays and Sunday from 1 to 4 or by appointment. Please help share this post with any Girl Scout leaders in your area.
