WHAT’S NEW IN SPRINGFIELD, NE

JUNE 27, 2012


THANK YOU!

Once again the Springfield Pride Shows up! This past Sunday, June 24th, we had the largest Blood Drive in Springfield’s recent history. We collected 48 units of Blood, which is an outstanding amount for the size of our community. I could not be any more proud of what we accomplished. Our goal was 38 units so, as you can see, we did 25% better than the Red Cross was looking for. I want to thank all who took time to donate, the Fire Dept. for letting us use the building, and all who let us put our flyers out to advertise. Once again, thank you from your St. Joseph Knights of Columbus (Sponsors) and the Red Cross.

Children's Theater Event At Lofte A Success

 

The Missoula Children's Theater residency at the Lofte Community Theatre last week was a resounding success.  In all, 110 children auditioned for the play.  This is a new record for area children wanting to take part in the week-long theater event.  After auditions, 58 children were cast to present the classic tale, "Hansel & Gretel."  

 

Starring in the title roles were Dawson Hogue of Murray (playing Hansel) and Madeline Schmit of Lincoln (playing Gretel).  The Wildwood Witch was played by Carson Santee of Plattsmouth.  Other children participating in the play are listed below by their town of residence.

 

The Lofte thanks Home State Bank and Plattsmouth State Bank for their continued sponsorship of this marvelous event.  Missoula Children's Theater is a non-profit organization based out of Missoula, Montana which works to help the development of life skills for children through the participation of the performing arts.
