2013 cake auction 001

Cass County Fair 4-H Auction Supporters (family, friends, businesses, alumni) are

invited to show support for Cass County 4-Hers by attending one of two 4-H auctions

held during the Cass County Fair.

• The 4-H cake auction starts at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday evening August 6, at the

open air auditorium on the Cass County fairgrounds.  It provides an opportunity

to purchase fancy or decorated cakes, pies, and/or specialty breads baked and

decorated by 4-H members.  The proceeds of this event will be divided between

the participating 4-Her and the Cass County 4-H Council.  4-H Council funds

raised at this event help sponsor activities for 4-H members throughout the year. 

Auction supporters are invited to stay for the Fashion Show/Awards program

following the auction.  A Sneak Peek and Refreshments will be held for everyone

at the 4-H Building following this event.

• The 4-H Livestock Auction starts at 3 p.m. on Sunday afternoon, August 11,

in the livestock barn.  Livestock judging awards will be presented to the 4-

Hers before the auction at 2:45 p.m.  The Cass County 4-H Council clerks this

premium sale which is held for market animals only.  Each exhibitor is allowed

to sell one animal of each species as premium only, meaning dollars per head not

cents per pound.  Exhibitors retaining ownership will only receive the premium

from the sale.  Exhibitors of shipped animals will receive the premium from the

buyer in addition to the sale proceeds from the buyer of the animal.




Who is ready for the Cass County Fair????


Here are some great NEW contests for you and yours to enter!

Plattsmouth Conservancy VIP Educational Program

On Tuesday, August 6th, in the lower level of the library the Plattsmouth Conservancy will host Jill Dolberg, who will lecture us on a property tax incentive that gives owners of historic buildings a temporary "hold" on property tax valuation increases when they rehabilitate a building.  It has been used successfully across the state for projects large and small, including private residential homes.

Ms Dolberg is Compliance Coordinator and Acting Administrator of the Nebraska Valuation Incentive Program (VIP) at the Nebraska State Historical Society.




Paranormal Activity in the Library on DVD

On June 29, investigators from Tri-City Research and Investigations into the Paranormal (T.R.I.P.) spent the evening in the Plattsmouth Public Library. The team reported its findings and showed the DVD of their investigation to an audience of over 60 people on Saturday, July 13. The library will have this DVD ready to check out by July 18. Call the library if you'd like to be put on hold for it.

Summer Activities through August 9

Even though the summer reading program has ended, there are still plenty of activities still going on at the library! You can find all sorts of fun Mondays through Thursdays until August 9. These activities include arts and crafts, story time, movies, board games, speed stacking, and video gaming. Check this page for a detailed list of activities.

These FREE programs are open to kids from preschool to 6th grade (completed). Please call Kirsten at 402-296-4154, extension 21, with any questions.


Computer Classes will Resume in Late Summer

The following regularly scheduled computer classes will be offered in late August or September: Basic Computers, Basic Internet, Using the Internet Wisely, Word Processing, Intermediate Email, and Excel. They are repeated on a regular basis, with a different class each week. Brief descriptions and a schedule for the classes can be found on this class schedule. The classes are free, but class size is limited. Please call the library to be notified when the sessions are available or if you have questions.

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!
