DESTINATION IMAGINATION

Westmont Elementary has two Destination Imagination   teams that have qualified to advance and participate in the Destination Imagination Global Finals at the University of Tennessee. While Global Finals is an amazing opportunity for these kids, it is also a very expensive one and this is where you come in. Please consider supporting these hard-working kids and help them move on to this next level so they can showcase their talents and creations in a venue amongst other top teams from around the world. We are hoping to raise $9500 through various fundraisers to cover the cost of this for these students. Any contribution you can make will be greatly appreciated by these kids and their families! Here is the link to the YouCaring page.

MASTER GARDENERS

Starting April 6th from 9:00 - 11:30 am on Thursday mornings the Master Gardeners of the Sarpy County Fair Garden will be available to answer your gardening questions.  Of course, this all depends on the glorious Nebraska weather. Gotta love that rain! So, if you have spots, rots, or can't figure what to put in those pots come on down.  We can even show you how to pull a weed or two or ten.

HAPPENING NEARBY

 2016 SPEER FAMILY

A LOVING, LASTING TRIBUTE...

Last October 20, 2016, as children were anxiously anticipating Halloween and lots of trick-or-treating, a beautiful, young family of six perished in the night, as their rural home went up in flames. Four little girls, Elli, Adilynn, Emma, ages 11, 7 and 5, were students at Conestoga Elementary and had many friends, in and around the surrounding area, as did their baby sister, Anniston, 2, and their parents, Mike and Michelle Speer.

In honor of her family, JoLynne Lehan, Mike's mom, has directed that donations go to Conestoga's outdoor classroom, Cougar Hollow. With the four little girls' love of performing, playing and being out-of-doors exploring nature, in mind, the new additions for this special area will include a pavilion for outdoor instruments, a chalkboard and chairs. A memorial fountain will be added at a later date.

A brick walking path will direct visitors to this special area. If you would like to honor this family with a loving tribute, you may purchase a memorial brick paver for $75. You may add any name to be engraved on the brick. There is space for 3 rows, with each row including a total of 14 characters, (including spaces). The clock is ticking...you need to order soon. Download an order form with complete directions here.

Thank you for helping to make this vision possible!

 

2017 Exotic Animal Day


 

 Princessball1  PrincessBall2 Princessball3  Princessball4  Princessball5princessball6

This weekend over 50 women of all ages attended the first Princess Balls at Havenmakers Building at 129 Main Louisville Ne. This was a fund raiser for Open Door Mission Kids to Camp program where homeless children are provided daily activities throughout the summer.  Hosted by Havenmakers Group with Nebraska Realty, it raised $2,000. That will allow over 40 kids to participate in the program.  

Jeanne Anderson, event host, states "This is going to be an annual event. There was amazing support in the community with people attending from Omaha to Lincoln and many surrounding towns.  I wanted an event where women of all ages could just dance and interact.  It was uplifting to seeing Grandmother's dancing with grandchildren.  Good business connections were made as well for many entrepreneurs in attendance".

 Activities were donated by generous women-owned businesses including shirt making by Simply Styled- Becky Robbins Pearly.

The cost is $499 and includes a textbook, skills packet and testing.
