Hope everyone had a nice, relaxing weekend but also took a moment to remember those who have served or are currently serving in our Armed Forces. Our freedom is a result of their dedication and commitment.
Parmele House’s First Annual Art in the Yard celebration held on Sunday, May 24th, so nice to see so much activity in town. The range of offerings from the artists really had something for everyone. There were paintings in various mediums, pottery, quilts, and even flowers made from glass platters and votive candle holders. The food was terrific from Pig Out Barbecue and the Friends of the Plattsmouth Public Library had a bake sale with proceeds to benefit the children’s programs. Next to us on the porch was the newly formed Happy Tails group with 2 cuddly kittens to adopt and 2 full grown cats also for adoption.
I thought this was a great PR move, to introduce not only the animals but also members of the group. Sue Baker is the new animal control officer and is really being proactive in this cause. This is a great addition not only to help safeguard people but also the animals. Be sure to check out their weekly advertisement in the Plattsmouth Journal with the animals available for adoption.
Then Terry Little appeared with his guitar and did an impromptu strolling minstrel act to add to the atmosphere.
It was just a lot of fun and a great way for people from out of town to come in and see all of the other great places to hang out in Plattsmouth.
Big Kudos to Carroll Hudson, owner of Parmele House, for designing and implementing this great activity. I am already looking forward to next year and will be getting my t-shirt early to wear during the program!
