 Kids Painting Class

 Part of what makes Elmwood great is our community involvement and local talent. Last Sunday a Kids painting class was held at the Elmwood Community Center. The kids had a wonderful time and some very creative projects were created. 

Cindy M hosted this class and has others planned. Subscribe to her Your Thairapist Facebook Group for more news and opportunities in the future. 


If you would like to see more "make and takes" workshops or would like to host a class just do it!! We have several locations in town where you can host depending on the size. The community center, the Elmwood Inspired AirBnB and the Elmwood Firehall.

 Harvest Moon Hustle

 Did you notice the extra cars and activity last Friday? 

It was the Harvest moon shuffle and 1300 runners and several hundred fans, family and observers cheered on the runners. 

Thanks to all the volunteers who helped and supported the Elmwood Rescue and our town. This event is one of the most unique running events in the state of Nebraska and sells out registration in less than 15 minutes. 

70220564 10157541722434133 7784278978734325760 o Take a look at the official photos from the Harvest Moon Shuffle and think about volunteering next year.

Elmwood Bess Streeter Aldrich Park News

Did you notice the dirt work this week? It's the next phase of the park renovations. Phase one was the new playground and just how fantastic is that?!


This next phase is the addition of a large gazebo on the south side of the lawn area. This will give us an opportunity for events, music, arts, a gathering place for people to sit, read, meet and enjoy the outside. 

Conversations this past weekend from people were excited about the possibilities to come and excitement for the future. 

Do you want to be part of the planning of that future? A park committee is being formed which will meet on a regular basis each month. Ideas such as...

Movies in the park

Arts in the park

Music in the park

Food truck events

Horseshoe competitions 

Fundraising for additional features

Attract outside special events to draw visitors to Elmwood

We need people with all kinds of talent. If you love Elmwood, love the park, want to be involved or even wish to have your voice and ideas heard email me at editor@elmwoodnebraska.com

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!
