Skating in Elmwood Again
Yes, there is still skating in Elmwood!
At least for a day when over 120 DARE students from Elmwood-Murdock, Eagle, and Louisville once again took over the hardwood floors at the Quonset, formerly known as Flying Wheels.
Deputy Tuttle hosted the DARE event for the local 5th graders. This event is in its 20th year and Deputy Tuttle has been there every time.
This is a favorite activity for the DARE program and a long he didn't listen t the rumor that there wasn't anymore skating in Elmwood anymore and called the Quonset to see what could be done.
The skates are saved, some kids I'm sure brought their own inline skates and it looks like everyone had a blast.
This was just by luck that I was running an errand and driving downtown and saw the doors open and the DARE vehicle. I could have easily missed it and what a shame that would have been.
This is a reminder to PLEASE email me upcoming news and events. Or, if you happen to see an event happening, or something fun going on in Elmwood, take a photo and email it to email@example.com

Annual Elmwood-Murdock Football Fish Fry
The Friday before Palm Sunday it is an annual tradition that people gather in Elmwood-Murdock gymnasium for the annual Football Fish Fry. I believe I have attended almost every year and this year I had other commitments and was very disappointed.
However Randy, my husband, did bring me take out for me to eat afterward. He expected the lines to be shorter since he went later, but that wasn't the case. Thank you to Tammy Brummer for sending me the great photos for the newsletter!!
Hand battered and fried fish, if you haven't been to the Football fish fry you are truly missing out!
Homemade desserts always fill the tables and it's always hard to choose. Randy did forget my dessert, by the way, someone should mention that to him. I dare you.
Let's see how many actually read the newsletter and mention it to him!!
About 350 people attended this year according to Julie Schmale and the funds will go to the football team for football camp. If you bought a ticket from a player they get credit towards their costs. This really helps out the team and they thank you!
