IMPACT

TOILET PAPER DRIVE

 

September 15 from 1-4PM

The IMPACT group from the Methodist Church is doing its annual Toilet Paper Drive!!

If you have a “Square to Spare”, we will be going Door to Door to collect Toilet Paper for the Food Pantries.

You might ask – Why Toilet Paper?  Well it is a necessity that can’t be purchased with food stamps. The Pantries we work with are always so grateful to receive your donations!!

 If you are able to pick-up an extra package at the store for us – we would really appreciate it!! We will be knocking on doors all over town to ask for donations. Always a fun day!!

If you want to drop it off at the church, that is fine as well. If you leave it in the entry, we will find it. J

ADDS SWEETNESS AND HUMOR TO LOFTE SEASON

 

Tom Griffin's off-Broadway hit, 'The Boys Next Door' opens at the Lofte Community Theatre on Saturday, August 31.  'Boys' is the story of four intellectually-disabled men living together in a small apartment with their social worker, Jack.  Dealing with Schizophrenia, OCD and other conditions are part of their daily life which is played out in scenes involving Jack and his mentally challenged wards.  Each faces their own conflicts, especially Jack who is starting to experience burn out.

Directed by Kevin Colbert of Weeping Water, the play stars Jamion Biesterfeld of Louisville as Jack.  Erik Quam of Omaha plays Arnold.  Doug Rothgeb and Joshua Smith also of Omaha play Norman and Barry respectively.  Kevin Holdorf of Manley is Lucien.  Also starring in the play are Ken Snyder of Elmwood, Silvia Conley of Papillion, Summer Sinclair of Council Bluffs and Greg Leger of Omaha.

The production runs August 31, September 1, 6-8 and 12-15.  Tickets are $17 and all seats are reserved.  The Lofte Community Theatre is located near the intersection of Hwy 1 and 50 just outside of Manley.  For reservations, please contact the box office at 402-234-2553 or visit www.Lofte.com.
