What a great time at the Murdock 4th of July Celebration. I took lots of photos it all started with the Dillon Synovec Memorial Run at 7:30 and for those who wanted breakfast, they found it at Bulldogs.
The Elmwood Volunteer Rescue Squad was on hand for any health issues during the race and the weather pretty much cooperated.
Look at these two beautiful ladies!! Doesn't matter that you got up at what time to set up and get organized.
Julie Synovec and Deb Zoebel manned the registration table and runners and walkers socialized in the early morning. Me, I can't function that early in the morning, much less run.
Julie Synovec and Deb Zoebel manned the registration table and runners and walkers socialized in the early morning. Many people have made this a tradition every year for the past 10 years and it's a wonderful way to remember Dillon and gather together as friends and family.
On Monday, August 21st at approximately 11:25 AM we will find ourselves on the edge of a rare celestial event, a total eclipse of the sun.
This is unique because it will travel through the United States from Salem, Oregon to Charleston South Carolina, dissecting Nebraska from Alliance in the Northwest corner to Falls City in the Southeast tip of the state.
Elmwood is located approximately 4 miles north of the “path of totality”. We will be able to see an eclipse where the moon will almost cover the sun completely.Elmwood Public Library is working with The Elmwood-Murdock School’s science teacher, Laura Stock, to give you the very best information and view-ability possible in our area.
We are planning two events which you and your family can have some hands-on activities to help make these events extra special.

It is getting to be that time of the year again. Time to start thinking about fair entries and exhibits.
Quilt Raffle: Last year's special block contest was for quilt blocks using the colors of the Olympics since it was an Olympic year. The blocks were then made into a quilt to be raffled off at this year's county fair. Besides the blocks from the contest, there are 7 blocks which were signed by 2016 Olympic athletes who had Nebraska ties.
Tickets will be for sale at the Fair Expo Building between August 8 and August 12, drawing to occur at 8:00pm the evening of August 12 in the Expo Building.One does not need to be there. Tickets are $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00.
If someone wants to buy tickets ahead of the fair, call Ramona Oehlerking at 402-429-8585. May have to leave a message.
Be aware that this year's contest (and next year's raffle quilt) is for 12 1/2" blocks of true blue and white. 2018 fair requirements will be 12 1/2" block of autumn colors.
