Weeping Water Nebraska





It was so much fun to see all the Trick-or-Treaters out

and about on Saturday night.  Some of them were soooooo

 cute, some were realllllly scary, and some were downright

funny!  And wasn't it a bootiful night, too?  I went down to

 the Halloween dinner at the United Methodist Church and

took some pictures of the kids coming in for dinner.  Every

 year the Methodist Church provides a free Halloween

dinner to trick-or-treaters and their families so that the

families can have a good meal before the sugar overload


















Featuring Devoted Sound, for youth on November 11, from 6:30 - 8PM at the United Methodist Church in Louisville. Mark your calendars and pass the word!

 The Otoe County Genealogical Society will hold its November 12th meeting at the Morton-James Public Library. This meeting will welcome all new members into the society, and will also cover topics of interest concerning genealogical research in the Otoe County area. This meeting is open to all who are interested in joining the society, or just wish to attend to learn more about genealogical research in general.
During this meeting we will be conducting our quarterly Genealogy Internet Workshop, where we will be introducing our members to the valuable genealogical resources that are available on the Internet. This workshop is designed to assist those researchers who are unsure of how to locate their family's history online. So if you are new to the Internet and would like assistance in this area, please stop by and join us in our free workshop. Also, for those visitors that prefer to research their ancestors through more conventional means, the library's Genealogical Reference Room will be open at this time, and assistance will be provided by society members in this area as well.
Our society meets on the second Thursday of every month at 7:00 pm, and our meeting location alternates every other month between the Otoe County Museum of Memories in Syracuse, and the Morton-James Public Library in Nebraska City. To learn more about the society, please check out our website, or contact the Morton-James Public Library for more information.






The Lofte Community Theatre announces that it will be holding a free Veterans Day concert on Sunday, November 8th at 2pm. The Colors will be proudly presented by Weeping Water Legion Post #237.  This concert is free and open to the public; no advanced reservations are required. 
The USAF Heartland of America Band’s "New Horizons" is a clarinet ensemble, featuring five of the squadron’s excellent clarinet players.  The group’s repertoire consists of classical, jazz and standard clarinet ensemble literature showcasing its musical diversity.  At home in large auditoriums or in more intimate chamber concert settings, New Horizons takes audiences on a tour of some of the world’s most beautiful and exciting music.  Each member of the group is a full-time Air Force professional.  Together they render the perfect blend of tone and musicianship.
The Lofte invites everyone to come and enjoy this moving patriotic event.  Bring your favorite veteran.  Join us to remember those who have served, or are currently serving their country far from home. 
Limited concessions will be available during this event.  For questions or driving directions, please visit the Lofte’s website, www.Lofte.com, or call the box office at (402) 234-2553.
