COMMUNITY BLOOD DRIVE

The Red Cross and the St. Joseph Knights of Columbus want to thank all who donated and made the attempt to donate blood on Sunday Dec 11th (probably had 12 that were deferred do to various reasons) I want to thank K.P. for the persistent attempt to donate. You are a trooper! Also thanks to the first-time donors hope to see you back in the future. We did collect 47 units, 7 over our goal which is great. We had the makings of a special day in Springfield! Once again, thanks to all involved; Donors, Fire Dept. and local merchants. Mark your calendars for February 12, 2017, our next drive.

Ralph Meister,

Coordinator

Lofte Theatre

“Twas the Night Before Christmas”

The Lofte Community Theatre near Manley is ready to help get you into the holiday spirit.  Their December production, “Twas the Night Before Christmas” opens on Saturday, December 3 at 7:30pm. 

“Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.”  But, wait!  A mouse is stirring - because Santa missed his house last year.  Before you can say, “Merry Christmas!” we’re off on the wild adventures of a mouse, an elf and a spunky little girl who just won’t take, “No,” for an answer.

This script is a modern-day treatment of the traditional 19th century classic tale. Together a mouse named Amos and his human friend, Emily embark upon a journey to visit Santa Claus.  Directed by Kevin Colbert, this energetic holiday tale will see the characters engage in a sword fight, a squirt gun battle and a perilous airplane ride.  This show is specifically styled to appeal to our younger audience members, but children of all ages will enjoy this holiday romp.

Amos the mouse is played by Lofte newcomer Austin J. Brady of Lincoln.  His human friend Emily is played by Shakeida Bullis of Bellevue.  Rounding out the cast of colorful characters are Greg Leger and Doug Rothgeb of Omaha and Keri Hogue of Elmwood.

In coordination with this production, the Lofte is holding a special fundraiser where children of all ages can meet Santa and the rest of the cast.  You will have the opportunity to eat a catered lunch right on stage, visit with Santa and even get your picture taken with the Jolly Old Elf himself.  This special luncheon is being held at noon prior to our three Sunday matinees.  Advance reservations are required.  This would be a great multi-generational family event or company outing.  Tickets to the luncheon are just $20.

Production dates for the show are December 3, 4, 8, 9, 10, 11, 16, 17 and 18.  All seats are just $19.  Those interested can call the Lofte box office at 402.234.2553 for reservation
