Make sure to stop by the park on Saturday mornings. Sample good tasting food. Find new recipes, socialize and meet new people.

People are LOOKING for Sweet Corn!!

Do you have sweet corn? Bring it to the Elmwood park Saturday morning to the Farmers market. 

Is your garden producing an overabundance of sweet corn, cucumbers, zucchini, tomatoes or anything else? 

Do you like baking cinnamon rolls, cookies, or making crafts?

Do you have honey, eggs, or even make jelly, wine or seasoning dip mixes or soup mixes?

 It's FREE to set up a table. Just Show up and get your spot!. 

You don't need anything fancy. Heck, you don't even need a table. Just bring a chair to sit. 

We have regulars who show up every week. People are asking for tomatoes, sweet corn, and other produce. 

Recipe Bannere

Introducing a brand new edition to the weekly news. A weekly recipe feature.

This will continue during the Farmers Market season to learn how to fix new dishes with the bountiful garden harvest. 

Blueberry Zucchini Streusel Muffins 

Blueberry Zuchnni muffins

This zucchini muffin recipe is tried and true and I have used it at my local Farmers Market for two years now with raving success.

HINTS: if using shredded frozen zucchini squeeze the water out after thawing (otherwise batter is too wet and blueberries will sink). If blueberries are thawed from frozen state toss in TBSP of flour to keep them from sinking.

If not using muffin papers spray tins with vegetable oil so they won't stick.

Wet Ingredients:
3 eggs
2 cups Sugar
3/4 cup veg oil 
2 tsp vanilla extract

Dry Ingredients:
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda

Crumb Topping I
1/3 cups sugar
3 TSP COLD butter
1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
(cut ingredients together with a fork, pastry cutter, should be crumbly)

1. Mix wet ingredients in order and beat until fluffy. (My Kitchen Aid is wonderful) 
2. In a separate bowl whisk together dry ingredients
3. Add dry to wet and gently blend until wet. 
4. Gently fold in zucchini until even
5. Gently fold in blueberries
6. Fill muffin papers/tins 3/4 full
7. Tops with Crumb Topping (optional)

Bake 350F for 30-35 min or until tops are golden brown. 
Let cool before glazing. Drizzle glaze with a fork.

1 cup powdered sugar, ~1tsp of milk. Beat with whisk. Add milk/sugar until the consistency is firm but runny.

The result is a super moist muffin will stay "fresh" for several days on the counter or in the refrigerator for a week. If they last that long. Pop in the microwave for 15 secs, cut in half and top with butter!! Yum!

If you have a favorite recipe please send a photo and the recipe to editor@elmwoodnebraska.com

elmwoodgolftournament2019 Harvest Moon Hustle

10K Race on the Mopac Trail

If you see an abundance of cars and runners this Friday night it's because over 1,200 runners will be coming through Elmwood On Friday, September 13th. The runners begin gathering race at the Elmwood park about 5:00 and the race starts at 7:00 pm.

The after-party is at the Elmwood Firehall beginning at 7:30. Be courteous to our visitors. Why? Because if we put our best foot forward they just might come back and visit. They might stay in our local AirBnBs, visit the Bess Street Aldrich House, shop at Bits N Pieces or Iron Horse Emporium, eat lunch at the Quonset and get ice cream at the Elmwood C Store. 

Elmwood is a great "day-trip" for people in Omaha and Lincoln.

Story Time Promo elmwood library

 Here are just a few of the new books recently granted to the Elmwood Public Library. We hope you find something that will tempt you!

elmwood library book Chester gus.jpg


“Chester and Gus” by Cammie McGovern

Chester hopes to follow in his mother’s paw prints and become a service dog. But when Chester fails his certification because he’s afraid of loud noises, he worries his dream will never come true! When a family adopts him to be a companion for their autistic son, Gus, it’s not exactly the future Chester had in mind, but he will do whatever he can to prove he’s the right dog for the job!

“The Girl Who Drank the Moon” by Kelly Barnhill

Newberry Award Winner! Every year the people of Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest and whom they think is evil. But, the witch is kind. She rescues the children and delivers them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest. One year, the witch accidentally feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight during their journey and the child becomes filled with extraordinary magic. As her powers start to emerge, the child faces dangerous consequences.

“Aaron and Alexander” by Don Brown

Both were orphaned at a young age. Both became successful lawyers. Both fought in the Revolutionary War. But politics put these Founding Fathers in constant conflict. A story of passion, patriotism, and pride that ends in the most famous duel in American History!

Be sure to check them out!

School is back in session and our school system is a big part of our community.

I know it's hard for me to stay in touch with the school activities since all our kids are out of school.


Many Friday nights I sat in the bleachers, ate nachos and hot chocolate as I watched the football team and listened to the band. Some of my favorite memories were going to the Winter concert and enjoying the choir and band. Now I don't have to miss the date. 


Did you know you can actually download the School Phone APP to stay connected to the sporting events, concerts, dinners, and events?

If the events continue to be successful, we will plan to do Yoga in the Park into the Fall and possibly, pending a location, into Winter.

Bring a friend, a yoga mat (or towel) and a water bottle and come to relax during an hour of yoga!
