Take It Or Leave It Pantry
This week I made a stop to donate some cereal to the "Take it or Leave it Pantry". I was pleasantly surprised to see it very full. After rearranging and organizing I found some room and actually made some room for more. It was perfect timing, just as I was leaving Carolyn O stopped by to leave some more cereal.
There is a wide variety of supplies from pasta, jelly, canned vegetables, jello, and quite a bit of pancake mix. So if you know someone who could use some support during these times let them know they can stop by anytime to pick up what they need.
The free pantry is here to serve our community. It is for neighbors helping neighbors. Take what you need or leave what you can.
Here are some ideas that may be useful:
The Little Free Pantry is located between Hufstader Chiropractor, the Elmwood Meat Market, and the Village Hall.

Elmwood Learning & Cultural Center
As New Elmwood Learning and Cultural Center grows it will serve as the following...
Objective: To serve as a learning and cultural arts center for Elmwood while providing long-term preservation of the community’s historical artifacts with special emphasis on the life and works of Bess Streeter Aldrich and the Grand Army of the Republic Veterans’ Hall.
Owners: Bess Streeter Aldrich Foundation and American Legion Post #247 (eventually, a community foundation will be formed)
Background: The Bess Streeter Aldrich Foundation and G.A.R. Veterans Museum have developed strategies to assure their long-term status in the community. A conversation with architect Rick Hawks about the possible construction of a new building located on the empty lot next to the G.A.R. Hall ultimately resulted in a suggestion to look at the Prairie Solutions Technology building which was purchased in August 2020.

NOW THAT YOU'VE REGISTERED, GET THE FACTS!
There are really NO EXCUSES for failing to vote. You have to work that day? No excuse. Don't have a babysitter? No excuse. You don't want to go out in a crowd? No excuse. Do you know that any Nebraska resident who is a LEGALLY REGISTERED VOTER may request an EARLY-VOTING BALLOT APPLICATION, (also known as an 'ABSENTEE' ballot)? You don't even need to have a reason, (or an excuse), for the request!
One excellent reason for voting by absentee, is the weather. An ice or snow storm, heavy winds or torrential rains could possibly keep you from physically voting on the actual Election Day. No worries about that with your mail-in vote either.
Do you need another good reason for voting by mail? You might get sick and cannot physically go to your polling place.
The following should help you save time:
Accurately, completely fill out the form. Include your name, residence address, phone number, mailing address you want the ballot sent to and your signature. Even if you do the automatic fill-in form online, you still need to SIGN IT after you print it. Mail it right away or take it to the Cass County NE Election Office and drop it in the box outside on the southwest wall of the building.
On September 28th ballots will start to be sent out and you should receive yours shortly thereafter.
So get your Early Voting Ballot Application form filled-out now, before the big rush.
The last day to request an Early Voting Ballot to be mailed to you is October 23rd.
Just do it now. Election Day will be here before you know it!
Cass County NE Voters can also check HERE.
Next to the Cass County Election Office door you'll see two sets of forms, one on the right for Voter Registration and on the left, the Early Voting Forms.
After they're filled out and signed, you may take them inside, mail them, or drop them in the 'Ballot Box' around the corner of the building, to the right of the big Election Office sign.
