Margie Trembley, Springfield ArtWorks will be on the Morning Blend Show on KMTV, Channel 3, somewhere between 9-10 am Thursday, June 10. She will be talking about Art On Main, that will be held at the gallery during Springfield Days.
Margie Trembley, owner of Springfield ArtWorks, participated in a roundtable discussion with Sen Mike Johanns at the Sarpy County Chamber of Commerce on June 1. The event was sponsored by the chamber and businesses could apply to be selected to participate. Approximately 20 people participated in the discussion, including city managers, mayors, education administrators, small business owners and bankers. Trembley noted "Not only did I get to express my concerns for my business and other businesses in Springfield and on Main Street, NE. The opportunity to hear other small businesses concerns was eye opening for me. I felt honored that I was selected. As a fairly new business owner in Springfield, it was gratifying to me to know that a US Senator would sit down with this group to hear our concerns and share with us the latest in Washington."

AMERICAN LEGION FLAG RETIREMENT CEREMONY
When the American Flag becomes soiled, faded, ripped or tattered and torn it must be retired and the proper method is for it to be burned. This honor and privilege falls to a very select group and the American Legion is one of these groups.
June 14 is Flag Day and is an ideal time to fly the flag and to inspect your flag. If it is determined to be the time to replace the flag you can drop off the old ones at the drop box (an old mail box) on the right side of the Springfield Legion building. At our meeting on June 21 we will hold a retirement ceremony for all flags received. This ceremony is open to the public, and we welcome school children as well as adults to witness this. The ceremony will start at 7:00 P.M. behind the Legion Hall in Springfield.
