Seems to be a fairly quiet week here in Plattsmouth so I will note one or two new items and then revisit some familiar ones for a refresher.

School registrations were last week with the first days of school rapidly approaching in Plattsmouth.   I wanted to include the below information for any parent needing to have their children immunized before starting school.

The Early Childhood Center hosts a regular immunization clinic every 4th Tuesday of the month from 3-6 PM.  This is a free clinic/immunizations for all children 0-18 y/o.  supported by Alegent Health.  Please call 593-3222 for an appointment. 

The Plattsmouth Volunteer Fire Department is holding a Poker Run this Saturday, July 25th starting at 11:00 a.m. at the Fire Station located downtown.  Cost of the poker run is $10.00 per hand and every hand needs to be in by 6:00 p.m. After the three state run, a dance is being held at the VFW featuring the band, “Cowboy Up.”  The dance is free but they are taking free will donations at the VFW to benefit the fire department.  What a great opportunity to support these men and women that do so much to protect us!  Check out their very cool website for more details about this fun day for a good cause.

All of the editors also received the attached flyer of the 6/20 group founded to support the victims of the tragic accident in South Bend earlier this summer.   This is also a poker run for a different cause but one just as worthy.  Please consider joining either one of these two events this Saturday.

Judy James, the USDA Rural Development representative for our area is at the Plattsmouth Public Library on Thursdays.  She is based out of the Lincoln office and can be reached at: (402) 423-9683 for an appointment or by email at: This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Open Hearts Kitchen at the United Methodist Church runs year round every Thursday night from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.  This volunteer run program has been offering good food and good fellowship since February, 2007.  Check out their website for more information on this wonderful program or for information on how to help.

The Plattsmouth Public Library has also received the Big Read Grant again from the National Endowment for the Arts focusing on the books, “Our Town” and “The Bridge of San Luis Rey” both by Thornton Wilder. Auditions for the production of “Our Town” will be held at the library the first part of August so be watching for more details on that.

Congratulations to the Redneck Players for another successful production. I went to the Thursday night production and had a blast!  The food was good and the performances even better.   All proceeds went to the Kyle Bluhm family who were involved in a vehicle accident earlier this spring.

Have a good week everyone and get out to support one of these great causes!
