Webelos Bridge from Cub Scout to Boy Scouts
 

Eight Webelos II Scouts (5th grade Cub Scouts) bridged over to Boy Scouts at the annual Cub Scout Blue and Gold Banquet.  The Scouts received their Arrow of Light badge, the highest award that can be earned in Cub Scouts, as the final act in their Cub Scout career.  They then crossed the physical and ceremonial bridge to leave Cub Scouts behind and start their new adventures as a Boy Scout in Springfield Troop 711.  Boy Scouts from Troop 711 greeted them on the other side decorating the new Scouts with the Troop neckerchief and slide. 
 
New Boy Scouts include Jesse Brinkman, Scott Cyr, Creston Harvill, Camden Heese, Roman Rausch, Matthew Rudie, Gabe Schwendinger, and Evan White.

REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR NO WRONG DOOR TRAINING AND NETWORKING

 Sarpy/Cass Department of Health and Wellness in partnership with The Nebraska Association of Local 

Health Directors and The Brain Injury Association of Nebraska are coordinating a No Wrong Door 

Training and Networking in Bellevue, NE on March 16, 2016.  

No Wrong Door trainings have been developed by the multidisciplinary Veteran's Brain Injury Task 

Force to assist community members, from a wide variety of professions and organizations, in serving veterans and their families. During this oneday training, attendees will hear testimony from veterans 

and their families. Experts in the fields of PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury will also discuss how 

military experiences influence the emotions and behaviors of military members and their families. 

 Finally, there will be resource representatives from our community partners available to answer 

questions and provide support through the day. 

Invited to attend are professionals and community members who have contact with, or work with 

returning service members or veterans, or their families. Community members who have not 

traditionally worked with veterans are encouraged to attend as well. There is value for everyone... 

teachers, principals, health professionals, neighbors, clergy, employers, law enforcement, etc. It is a 

great way to network with others who have a common goal. 

For more information or to register for this one day event visit http://nalhd.org/nwd.html  

No Wrong Door Training will take place from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on March 16, 2016. Location:

The MURRAY FREEDOM FESTIVAL Board of Directors wishes to THANK all the patrons who enjoyed our pancake breakfast last Sunday. It was a HUGE success!

 Our generous volunteers have again demonstrated that it takes a COMMUNITY of FRIENDS WORKING TOGETHER to make things happen.  

Thanks to those who donated supplies and equipment, Principal Eric Dennis, for the use of the school and to the 'Pancake King', Wes Redden for those tasty, fluffy pancakes!  The Nebraska Community Website editors did a great job of advertising for us, as did Steve Warga with the Cassgram.  We had guests from many neighboring communities - even from as far away as Michigan!

For your continued and generous SUPPORT of the annual4TH of JULY celebration in Murray,

THANK YOU!
