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.

( 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.

Burrows Tracts Real Estate

B.J. Burrows has been as an agent for Nebraska Realty,  in Elmwood for the past five years. He decided to start his own brokerage business and officially opened Burrows Tracts Real Estate Jan. 2.

You know the sign, it's the one with the Burro on it, get it Burrow...

The full article about the expansion and changes at the local real estate company can be found here. 

Please visit their website to find a new home, acreage or list your today.
