  Farmers Market Saturdays

Thank you, thank you!!  You heard you listened and you responded! 

farmersmarket 72722d

Last week was the highest attendance at the Elmwood Farmers Market that we have had all year! It encouraged the vendors, it put a smile on our faces and gave us hope for the rest of the year.

Kids came and enjoyed the Mago Passion Iced tea, it will be back this weekend, so don't miss it, will probably be the last time you see it this season. Unless you go to the Cass County Fair.

Three Girls and a Garden is starting to burst at the seams with produce. There will be more vegetables and produce this weekend.

Honey was a big hit also. The Bee Bum from Adams always has taste testings of the creamed honey. 

Keep Coming to the Farmers Market and Tell Your FRIENDS!!

Remember if you want the market to continue, STOP BY the market this Saturday and let us know. 

Elmwood Rescue 

Elmwood Rescue Elmwood NE 1

Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation awards millions of dollars’ worth of lifesaving equipment and resources to first responders and public safety organizations throughout the country. The lifesaving equipment purchased through these grants often provides an immediate impact on the recipients’ ability to better support their communities as Elmwood Rescue recently experienced during a cardiac arrest emergency.

Elmwood Rescue was awarded a chest compression system to help its medical crew respond to cardiac arrest emergencies in its rural response area. Shortly after the equipment arrived, the crew was dispatched to the scene of a man in respiratory distress. The team used the awarded device to provide continuous chest compressions until the patient’s pulse returned. Today, he is out of the hospital and able to resume a normal life.

“A big thank you to Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation for helping us purchase this lifesaving device!”

– Captain Ed Blunt, Elmwood Rescue

FBLA 0702221737c

More than 360 Nebraska students, advisers, and guests recently attended the FBLA National Leadership Conference in Chicago, Illinois. Nebraska FBLA members competed June 29-July 2 in 79 competitive events. More than 12,000 FBLA members from 48 states, as well as U.S. territories and international chapters, attended the conference.

FBLA 0702221706a HDR

Students attended learning sessions with industry leaders, elected a national student officer team, and competed, with more than 700 middle school students and 8200 high school students competing in a variety of national events. This year’s theme was “Success Starts Here.” The National Leadership Conference is the culmination of students’ hard work over the previous academic year and an opportunity to showcase the skills and knowledge gained in the classroom.

FBLA 0702221805a

Eighteen students from Elmwood-Murdock competed at the national conference. The students who competed were:

● Lexi Bacon, Bailey Frahm & Sela Rikli, Partnership with Business Project ● Nathan Lockman, Electronic Career Portfolio
● Jaxson Spellman, Organizational Leadership
● Henry Coleman & Rylan Kastens, Local Chapter Annual Business Report ● Henry Coleman & Riley Wilson, E-Business
● Sam Clements, Rylan Kastens, & Nate Rust - Sales Presentation
● Haylee Josoff, Jordan Vogler, & Cassidy Callaway - American Enterprise Project ● Ella Zierott, Tatum Backemeyer, & Laney Frahm - Community Service Project ● Madison Justesen & Brianna Ross - Website Design
● Cassidy Callaway - Computer Applications

The American Enterprise team of Jordan, Haylee, and Cassidy made it to the final round, where they were one of the top 12 teams out of 100 teams that competed in that event. However, they did not make “stage” which is only for the top 10 winners, so they either got 11th or 12th, which is still a big accomplishment!

The Elmwood-Murdock chapter also earned two prestigious national awards. These included the Champion Chapter and the Gold Seal Chapter Award of Merit.

Did you know that the initial concept of this online town newsletter more than 20 years ago was supposed to be based around READER SUBMISSIONS!
Yup, that's right. Back then it was harder to send in news. NOW, you can just email news and photos to editor@elmwoodnebraska.com It's that simple. 
Remember not everyone has Facebook. Really they don't. ...AND Facebook doesn't show all the content from community groups. 
By subscribing on your phone you will receive a TEXT every Wednesday and an easy-to-access link. 
Elmwood Nebraska TextSubscribe
 So make sure to submit your news to editor@elmwoodnebraska.com for added exposure for your event or activity.
Many rely on the weekly Wednesday text message that links directly to the website. 
Since our Elmwood website is updated on a weekly basis GOOGLE and visited by 100s of people per week,  search engines rank this site number ONE on Google. Normally Wikipedia, map-quest, or city-data comes up first.
