Elmwood Nebraska News
Spring is here and that means Easter Egg Hunts, the Football team annual Fish Fry and Prom Season!
Can you keep up? Maybe not, but let's try.
April will be a busy month and to help navigate the events I've added a Table of contents section at the top to easily navigate through the newsletter.
There is a lot happening in Cass County. Make sure to check out the newsletters in the other towns for events.
Flowers will be blooming and you might see me hunkered down on the ground in Various location throughout town taking pictures.
I love flowers! I also love photography, and that is an understatement.
Make sure to check out the photography exhibit at the Bess Streeter Aldrich Museum the month of April. Many of my photos are featured in the living room area of the house.
You might even recognize some of the area barns and farms I have photographed over the years.
Please share you spring flowers by sending me an email at email@example.com and I will feature them in the newsletter. I am also looking for community news and events. Is your group having a plant sale? Doing a car wash?
Please send photos of your past events, prom, youth group events, pancake feeds, 4-H club meetings, scout meetings, garden club, church suppers, it's all news that shows the vibrancy and life of Elmwood Nebraska.

On Saturday, April 1st busses pulled up to escort the 70 Elmwood-Murdock Juniors and Seniors and their dates to their prom.
They were dressed to the nines in their formals and the boys were looking snazzy in their rented tuxedos.
Parents lined the red carpet to act as paparazzi and capture the moment.
Both the prom and post prom was held at the Kroc Center in Omaha and the kids and sponsors had access to three pools, several gyms, an indoor soccer field and a game room.
Thank you to Karey Koehn for the photos

We have a new book at the library!
Every year the Nebraska State Quilt Guild donates a quilting book to the Elmwood Public Library.
This years donation is by Jo Morton from Nebraska City. Jo began quilting in 1980 and hasn't put her needle down since.
She particularly enjoys creating small-scale interpretations of nineteenth-century American quilt patterns.
This book contains some wonderful patterns from scraps and fat quarters.
You can make some beautiful Heirloom quality quilts!
If you enjoy quilting, come check out Jo's book and the others which have been donated by the Nebraska State Quilt Guild!
