I want to personally thank the residents of Springfield and surrounding communities!! So many of you have been such a huge help to the youth group at the Methodist Church – I.M.P.A.C.T. (Inspired Ministry Preparing Authentic Christian Teens). You have laughed with us as we do our annual Toilet Paper Drive, to help food pantries. You have supported us as we do prayer walks through the community, where we stop and pray for others. You have helped us to raise funds to go on our Mission Trips, we have 28 people going on this year’s trip to Red Lake, MN. The most we have ever taken.
Without you, none of this would be possible, so Thank You from the bottom of my heart!! Thank you for caring enough to help!!
Grace & Peace,

LOUISVILLE PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL PRODUCTION
Come and join us for the high school production of "Take Five" this Friday, May 1st, at 7PM in Louisville Public School’s Elementary Gym. Admission will be a goodwill donation. “Take Five” is a hilariously funny half an hour production. Imagine you are an actor on opening night trying to perform on a set that isn’t completed. Then one actor doesn’t show up, a fruitcake from the audience uses your stage phone to argue with his wife, the props either don’t work or are missing, the lighting and sound cues are off, and two incompetent stagehands do their worst. This award winning comedy is filled with surprises and zany characters.
GREENBLATT & SEAY
JAM SESSION WORKSHOP
THE OLD AVOCA SCHOOLHOUSE
On Sunday, May 10, at 2:30 PM, in the Old Avoca, Nebraska Schoolhouse, multi-instrumentalists, Greenblatt & Seay, will be performing a selection of original songs from their vast collection of hundreds of zany tunes that they have created together. This talented duo provides rich vocal harmonies, and will play a variety of instruments, including 5-string viola, fiddle, guitar, nyckelharpa, harmonica, banjo, bass, etc.
The family-friendly concert will be downstairs, followed by light refreshments, and a chance to chat and jam with Greenblatt & Seay. Avoca is in southern Cass County, Nebraska, on the 13 C Spur, one mile south of Highway 34.
~It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.
