SCHWAN'S ICE CREAM FUNDRAISER
The Murray Presbyterian Deacons, under the name of "Mighty Murray Small Church", are raising funds to be donated to the Lori Williams family of Murray Ne. Lori was paralyzed due to an accident several months ago and now her family is under mounting financial stress. Lori's family will receive 20% of orders starting August 18 through October 2, 2014 and, after October 2, will receive 5% for one year.
To order online, you must enter www.schwans-cares.com/f/32144. Go to 'Shop Now' and an online catalog, with the name 'Sherrill Konfrst', (church deacon), will be presented to you.
If you would like to place your order over the phone, please call 1-855-870-7208 and use fundraiser ID# 32144.
If you live in the US and have local Schwan's delivery, you may participate in this worthy cause. A Schwan's delivery person will deliver your products directly to your home and you'll be helping Lori and her family!
Please direct any questions you might have to Sherrill at 402-235-2844.
Thank you for your support!
Greenblatt & Seay proudly announce the Eighteenth ANNUAL SCHOOLHOUSE FIDDLING BEE. This historical, hysterical event will take place on Sunday, October 12, at 2:30pm, downstairs in the Old Avoca Nebraska Schoolhouse. In the Open Division, fiddlers will play a hoedown, a waltz, and a tune of choice. There will also be other divisions of competition available for the adventurous fiddlers, including a Singing Fiddler's Contest, a Twin Fiddler's Contest, a Fee-Fe-Faux Fiddler's Contest (fiddle tunes played on any instrument other than a fidldle), and a Hocus-Pocus Contest (cross-tuning, sound effects, dancing, etc.), which will give fiddlers an opportunity to play tunes that are usually not allowed in any other contest.
Contestants can pre-register online
Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for students, and $1 for children. Fiddlers and their back-ups are admitted for free. The contest will be followed by a light snack and an acoustic jam session.
