First Nebraska Bank Supporting American Cancer Society through "12 Months of Giving" Charity Initiative

First Nebraska Bank is supporting the American Cancer Society during the month of December as a part of a charity drive implemented in 2014 called "12 Months of Giving."  The concept is simple; for every "like" received on its Facebook page, First Nebraska Bank will donate $1 to the American Cancer Society.

First Nebraska Bank has always endeavored to have a positive effect on its customers, employees and the communities in which they live and work-beyond merely the financial services it offers.  In fact, it was this sense of community obligation that led to the creation of the "12 Months of Giving" campaign, which was born from the notion that the bank's customers, employees and communities can accomplish more when they work together as a team.

According to Clark Lehr, president of First Nebraska Bank, this philosophy has long been a fundamental part of the bank's mission: "Not only is this a great way for Nebraskans to contribute to charitable causes by simply clicking the "like" button on our Facebook page, for us, it's also definitely in keeping with our philosophy of hometown commitment and being a part of the communities we serve."

Employees of First Nebraska Bank selected the American Cancer Society because, unfortunately, cancer has touched many of their lives in one way or another.  Each of them knows someone who has been diagnosed with cancer.  First Nebraska Bank has current and past employees who have battled this disease; they have family members and friends that have also been affected.  Cancer doesn't discriminate anyone for any reason.  That is why they chose the American Cancer Society as the charity to help with bank-wide support.

A bank-wide goal has been set to raise up to $500 per month for each charity, or a total of $6,000 donated to these charitable organizations by the end of the year.

The Lofte Community Theatre will usher in the holiday season on Saturday, December 6 with the hilarious family comedy, "Christmas Belles."  Written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten, "Belle" is the story of three squabbling southern sisters trying to pull off their church's Christmas program.

Poor suffering Frankie is pregnant with twins and weeks past her due date.  Hot-flash suffering Honey Rae is trying to keep the Tabernacle of the Lamb's Christmas program from spiraling out of control and middle sister, Twink, is in jail for inadvertently setting the town on fire.  Their hilarious holiday journey through a misadventure-filled Christmas Eve is guaranteed to bring joy to your world!  If you saw the Lofte's first season production, "Dearly Beloved," you will recognize many of the same colorful characters in this sequel.

Directed by Kevin Colbert, the play features Keri Hogue of Elmwood, Shari Hoelker of Omaha and Wendy Allen of Plattsmouth as the three Futrelle sisters.  The production also showcases the talents of Randy Wallace and Doug Rothgeb of Omaha, Ross Mumford and Ken Snyder of Elmwood, Kirsten Wood and Melinda Mead of Plattsmouth, Betty Colbert of Weeping Water and Alyssa DePaolo of Lincoln.

"Christmas Belles" runs December 12-14 and 19-21.  Friday and Saturday night curtain times are 7:30pm.  All Sunday performances are 2pm matinees.  Tickets are $19, but there are special reduced rates for groups of 20 or more.  Call the box office at 402-234-2553 to make reservations.
