NATIONAL RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS DAY
FEBRUARY 17, 2017
Get well wishes to Leland Carmichael and continued
wishes to Bruce Hassler.
We had a lot of great feedback on the Nebraska Centennial
photos in the History Room. It's not too late to share yours!
We will be displaying them through the end of June if you
would like to share yours.
Correction: The 4-H group serving lunch at the Community
Center on Groundhog Day was the Better Beef Producers.
Did you know Nebraska's most decorated WWI combat pilot
was a native of Weeping Water and is credited with shooting
down five German planes. His name - Orville Ralston!
Have finished adding photos for Groundhog Day. Click on
