That’s right folks – We need your TP to help stock local food pantries. Toilet Paper cannot be purchased with State Aid however, as we all know, it is an necessity. The UMC Youth Group will be running through Springfield knocking on doors and asking for your Toilet Paper - Sunday June 5th. So next time you stop at the store pick up an extra package or two, if you can. If we don’t make it to your house on that day, please drop it off at the Church. Our goal is to collect 1000 rolls.

“Year four of the program features 23 Nebraska wineries and 6 tasting rooms, where participants can pick up a passport and begin enjoying Nebraska’s wines. Nearly 28,000
passports have been distributed across the state. Our Passport Program is designed to encourage more Nebraskans to visit our award-winning wineries in 2011,” Hilske said. Passports can also be downloaded from the association’s website atwww.nebraskawines.com. “The NWGGA Passport Program not only promotes Nebraska wines, but also encourages people to visit communities and buy other products all over the state. It’s a win-win for everyone,” concluded Hilske.
In addition, Passport Program participants who visit at least 15 wineries and 4 tasting during the year are automatically entered into a prize drawing. The 2010 NWGGA Passport Grand Prize winner was Shane Marquis of Lincoln, who won a weekend stay in a Nebraska Bed & Breakfast Inn of his choice. First prize, a case of Nebraska wines, was awarded to Karen Bullard of Omaha. Vicki Vonloh of Lincoln won second prize, a From Nebraska Gift Shop $50 Gift Certificate.
