Springfield Wednesday Newsletter - April 27, 2016
City Hall learned that someone is calling residents threatening to shut off their water if they do not remit payment for their "past due water bill" over the phone immediately. Please be aware that the city is NOT initiating or conducting these phone calls. This is a scam.
Also, the city only accepts cash or check as payment for water. We do not accept payment over the phone or by credit card.
Please contact City Hall at 402-253-2204 with any questions. Thank you!
WESTMONT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
DESTINATION IMAGINATION FUNDRAISER
Springfield Platteview Community Schools Destination Imagination teams have had a great year competing in Destination Imagination. One of the 6th grade teams from Westmont earned 1st place at the Regional tournament and recently earned 1st place at the State tournament which now qualifies them to compete in the Global Finals in Knoxville, Tennessee. The team is doing various fundraisers to help offset the cost of participating in this event. They have set up a GoFundMe account for donations (https://www.gofundme.com/westmontDI)

It's always fun to find a different place to eat in our area and without going into the city. Over in Louisville, at 127 Main Street, there's a new place called B's Diner and Bakery. It's owner, Brenda McCaul, prepares everything fresh for you and it's really tasty!
Located in the former Art Chicks shop on Main Street, it's a somewhat small, but very nice place to visit. The servers were fantastic, coming back several times to see if we needed anything and Brenda even came over to welcome us to her establishment.
So put B's Diner and Bakery on your list of places for breakfast or lunch. It's worth the short trip over to Louisville for a great meal!
Real tableclothes cover most of the tables and the bakery case shows off the daily creations that will make your mouth water!
