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.

“THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER”

The Lofte's second production of the year takes us back to small-town Ohio in the 1930s.  Sheridan Whiteside ("Sherry" to his friends) is a famously outlandish New York City radio personality who has been invited to dine at the home of the well-to-do Stanley family.  But disaster strikes before he enters the house.  Whiteside slips on the ice and injures his hip!  

 What started out as a one-night event soon turns into a month-long convalescence.  Confined to the house, Sherry drives his hosts mad by viciously insulting them, monopolizing their house, running up large phone bills, and receiving many bizarre guests, including paroled convicts.  

This classic American script has enjoyed several revivals on Broadway and the London stage and was made into a feature film in 1942 starring Bette Davis, Jimmy Durante and Monty Woolly.   

Ken Snyder of Elmwood is playing the irascible Sheridan Whiteside.  He is joined on stage by Brenda Jones (Louisville) and Tim Sorensen (Elmwood) playing his hosts, Mr. and Mrs. Stanley.  Rosalie Duffy (Lincoln) and Doug Rothgeb (Omaha) play the star-crossed Maggie Cutler and Bert Jefferson. Rounding out the cast are Dustin Reckling (Louisville), Jean Wymore (Syracuse), Jessica and Rita McKinney, Ken Patry and Trish Miller (Omaha), Cheryl and Will Jones (Manley), Tom Lucas (Papillion), Jeff Johnston (Elmwood), Mike Brown (Firth), Jim Skrobo (Elkhorn), Aubree Sweeney and Millard Carnes (Plattsmouth),  Guillermo Rosas (La Vista), Zeke Rouse (Murray), Brenna Thompson, Nick Roth (Lincoln), John Bell and Dan Roberg (Omaha) and Shawn Reynolds (Bellevue).  The production is directed by Kevin Colbert.

 "The Man Who Came to Dinner" runs June 2-4 and 8-11.  Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances are at 7pm.  Sunday performances begin at 2pm.  Those interested in tickets may call the box office at 402-234-2553 or visit Lofte.org for online purchasing.  All seats are reserved and ticket price is $19.

   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!
