The Garden Club was initiated in 1934, and then became a Federated Garden Club of Nebraska in 1935. We are 77 years strong, with almost 50 active members currently, and the census continues to grow each month as we utilize various forms of electronic media. We are a group of women, and men, of all age groups, most who live in the Plattsmouth community.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MILITARY FAMILIES INVITED TO A FREE DAY OF FALL FUN
Annual Military Family Day Planned at Bloom Where You’re Planted Farm & Pumpkin Patch
Bloom Where You're Planted Farm & Pumpkin Patch is hosting its sixth-annual Military Family Day on September 22nd . Service men and women and their immediate family members will receive free admission to the farm all day when presenting their military ID.
Farm owners Terry and Teresa Lorensen recognize the sacrifices these men and women, their spouses and children make as part of a military family, and want to provide them a fun break and a chance to celebrate the season. "When we started this event six years ago, a friend of ours was serving in the military and we saw how that affected his family. We wanted a chance to say ‘thank you’ to all those in the same situation. It’s been fun and eye-opening to meet so many wonderful people from all over the country who are serving in the military.”
