Elmwood Learning & Cultural Center
Business and Commercial Space for rent! These offices are fully furnished and share common space for meetings and a kitchenette area.
The above office is only $400/month, if you know of someone who would like to relocate their office between Omaha and Lincoln this is IDEAL
The second office is slightly larger and has a window. This office space is renting for $600/month.
As New Elmwood Learning and Cultural Center grows it will serve as the following...
Just look at this space!! It is a blank palate, but with the vision of the board members from the G.A.R. Veterans Museum and the Bess Streeter Aldrich Museum, it will be spectacular.
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.
Future Goals for the Building
The Elmwood Community Center is an independent agency that relies on the income from the lunch crowd, the Monday night out community dinners, occasional facility rentals, and donations from the community to keep the lights on.
During this challenging time of COVID-19, we have continued to provide lunches that have been available for carryout and delivery with most being delivered. We are looking for creative ways to boost our income so we can keep the doors open.
Our Monday Night Out buffet dinners were very popular so we are going to change that up a bit and offer a Monday-To-Go where the meals will be available for carryout or delivery.
We hope you will partake and help the Elmwood Community Center continue to be able to support your community!
The Community Center is now operating at somewhat "normal" capacity.
The movie Second Hand Lions will be shown on Thursday, September 24th.
This would be a great opportunity for homeschoolers and learn at home families to take a break and visit the Community Center for lunch and a fun movie.

Fall has arrived and fall-themed food (pies, etc)
Look who came by the Farmers Market last week, Java Daddies coffee truck.
It was a slow start to the Farmers Market, the weather was cool, and a little wet due to the rain the night before. BUT, coffee brings people out in droves and a good cup of coffee is just one way to warm up.
Look what's NEW!!
We have had a LOT of questions on how long the Farmers Market will continue.
The signs say October, but is it the first of October or the end of October?
Well, it really depends on the weather and how many vendors continue to set up on Saturday mornings.
Do you have pumpkins, gourds, or fall wreaths?
Maybe you have corn stalks for decorating, baked pies, and apples??
Wear your fall hoodies, sell hot chocolate, apple cider, and maybe even have a special Halloween weekend edition with special "Trunk N' Treat" for the kids.
What do you think? Who is interested?
For the latest news from our vendors
Join our Facebook group and stay up to date on who will be showcasing their produce, baked goods, and other items. Ask if anyone is bringing apples, pies, pumpkins.
Harvest Moon Shuffle
The Harvest Moon Shuffle was originally scheduled for Friday the 11th, but due to rain, it was postponed until Sunday at 5 pm. This year's race was run a little differently. There was an option for a virtual race with half of the participants opting for virtual and the other 700 physically running.
The organizers and event sponsor, Pink Gorilla met that afternoon to set up, prepare, and get ready for the race. This even included walking the race route and brush off "rolling walnuts" There is a LOT of behind the scenes activities to make it a successful race.
The Elmwood Library is open again. Regular hours with just a few adjustments for social distancing.

Take It Or Leave It Pantry
The free pantry is here to serve our community. It is for neighbors helping neighbors. Take what you need or leave what you can.
Those who wish to contribute may do so at their discretion when convenient. If the box if full please bring your items back later. So what should you contribute? During this coronavirus situation, there will be an increased need for healthy snack items for kids. Obviously items like toilet paper, sanitizer may be needed by many.
Please avoid harsh strong-smelling chemicals that may transfer to food items.
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.

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.
