Happy New Year!!!!
I hope your Christmas was wonderful and you are looking forward to 2019.
As with many people I find myself looking back at 2018 and recapping all the positive things that happened. Well, that's what I'm going to do here.
Elmwood is a wonderful community full of wonderful people.
For such a small town we stay busy and productive. We volunteer in many ways and encourage our kids to volunteer.
Without community participation, Elmwood would wither away and die. We are vibrant and many in Cass County recognize this. It wouldn't be possible without the thousands of hours every year from volunteers.
Next week I'm going to provide a list of where you can volunteer in Elmwood, if you have ideas please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
I know I'm going to leave something out but here are a few things that happened this year. But none of these would be possible WITHOUT volunteers.
Elmwood Famers Market in the Park
Hundreds of additional people visited the park from not only the local community but around the United States including Wisconsin, Chicago, Washington State, Japan, Germany, and many others.
String Beans Concert - Library Fundraiser
Memorial Day & Veteran Day Observances
Many people in the state, including the Governor, have stated Elmwood does one of the best jobs of honoring our veterans. All of this is due to the active American Legion and many many hours of volunteers.

March 15, 2018 (Lincoln, Neb.) — Weather permitting, work is scheduled to continue the week of March 19 on N-63, between Alvo and I-80, according to the Nebraska Department of Transportation.
Knife River, LLC of Sioux City, Iowa has the $11,758,926 contract. Work will include realignment of N‑63, culverts and box culverts, and wetland mitigation. This will be the second of two phases of work.

This portion of the project is anticipated to be completed in ________________ who knows, November is past and the highway is far from being complete.
The Department’s project manager is Jesse De Los Santos of Lincoln. Motorists are reminded to drive cautiously through work zones and along detours.
