I'm going to be a little indulgent this week. I have become a first-time Grandmother and it's Twins!!

Yes, my daughter Jennifer had a boy and a girl last Thursday and we left and drove straight through the night to Dallas Texas to meet our grandbabies.

I've joined the Granma club and Randy has become "Papaw"

So this newsletter is coming to you from Texas the next couple of weeks while I'm helping Jen and Justin with the babies. 

I need your help. Please keep an eye out for photo opportunities. Send photos of past events. The dog wash, and pet vaccination clinic and the new banners going up in town.


See, the newsletter is for ANY important event of interest to anyone in Elmwood. Do you have a story about a former student doing something outstanding? Is a local Elmwoodian (is that a word??) an author? Maybe a resident got a new job worth bragging about? 

 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.



The Elmwood-Murdock FBLA once again hosted the Community Easter Egg hunt in Elmwood Park. They hunted Easter eggs, saw the Easter bunny and got prizes. 

A good time was had by all and thank you to Angie Wiley for supplying the photos.

The Easter Egg Hunt at the park was always a favorite event for me to attend. Nothing like little kids eyes lighting up when they find eggs behind a tree. Or is it running like crazy all over the grass trying to collect the most eggs?

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 editor@elmwoodnebraska.com
