The recycling trailer at the end of Main Street is FULL.
It will be available again Thursday, August 22, 2013.
Last Friday evening we decided to go to the Cass County Fair. We stopped by the horses first.
Nathan Fredrick and Emmalynn Green petting the horses.
Cadence and Robert Green petting the horses.
We kids stopped by to see Sheriff Brueggemann and were arrested!
They then made the annoucement about the Kiddo Tractor Pull. This year Emmalynn decided that she wanted to try it, until we got there! After some convincing, and a promise she could get her face painted she waited in line.
Cadence and Mommy hung out to cheer sissy on!
(unfortunatly I only recorded the tractor pull...no picture)
After the tractor pull, it was time for some good Fair Food! There was so much to pick from. If only we could have a little bit of something from every vendor. While I was waiting in line to order our food, I saw someone walk by with a HUGE Taco Salad. Next year, that is MINE!
The kiddos then decided it was Face Painting Time!!!
Nathan Fredrick as "Iron Man" and Emmalynn Green as "Hello Kitty".
What is the Cass County Fair without checking out the Farm Equipment?! Or sitting inside the wheels? HA HA HA
Nothing like watching the Demo Derby and eating some Schwans Ice Cream!
It was a beautiful evening for the fair...if only there were a few more hours in day.
If you have any pictures from the fair please send them to:
I KNOW I wasn't the only one there...and this was only ONE night.
We would love for you to share!!

Adult Game Nights will Resume in October
There will not be any adult game nights at the library until fall. Many people are out of town during the summer and those that stay in town take advantage of the nice weather to listen to music at the Plattsmouth Entertainment Center on Fridays. We hope to see our avid gamers when we resume adult game nights in October.
I am looking through the years 1900s-Present day of you, mother, father, grandmother, or your children in car seats. Please provide a small caption. PHOTOS RECEIVED will be published in upcoming Plattsmouth Newsletters!
