UNION UNITED Cleanup / Beautification Project!
The newley named "Union United" group is planning to move around the planters on Main Street, scrape & repaint them (white) and then plant them with a variety of flowers. This project will likely take place on a couple of Saturday mornings or afternoons, with scraping & painting on one project day and then planting on another. We can use both financial support as well as physical labor support (we have some volunteers already & John Pfahl and Ruth and Max Hollar have donated white paint). If you are willing to help in any way, please call Judy Attebery @ 235-3900 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for helping to beautify Main Street – one of the many projects the community included in survey responses!
Walk Through Wyuka Tour
"The Otoe County Genealogical Society will host it's 2nd annual 'Walk Through Wyuka' tour at the Wyuka Cemetery in Nebraska City on May 13th at 7:00 pm. Wyuka Cemetery historian, Don Hegr, will be our tour guide and will guide us through the many historical internments in Nebraska's oldest public cemetery. Don's tour will cover the history of the cemetery, and will also showcase numerous graves of Nebraska City's prominent (and sometimes not so prominent) people that are buried within the cemetery. If you would like to join us on this tour, please meet at the maintenance shed inside the cemetery at 7:00 pm. There will be someone at the main entrance of the cemetery to guide you once you arrive, and parking will be on the south side of the maintenance shed."
Blackwood Brother Quartet
Performance at the Lofte
The Blackwood Brothers Quartet, a popular and enduring force in Gospel music, will be performing at the Lofte Community Theatre in Manley on Sunday, April 25th at 2pm.
The Blackwood Brothers have recorded over 200 albums and toured in 47 countries. They have won eight Grammy Awards and 6 Dove Awards. Over the years, the Blackwood Brothers have been guests on the Barbara Mandrell Show, Hee-Haw, and The Grand Old Opry. They have sung with Johnny Cash, Porter Wagoner, Tennessee Ernie Ford and many more. They were inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in Nashville in 1998. The group now consists of Jimmy Blackwood, Wayne Little, Randy Byrd and Brad White.
The original Blackwood Brothers formed in 1934 in Choctaw County, Mississippi. In 1954 the quartet performed on the “Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts” show on television. Two weeks after winning the competition, two of the original Blackwood brothers, R.W. and Bill Lyles, were both killed in a plane crash in Alabama. The surviving Blackwoods regrouped, adding younger brother Cecil to sing baritone and J.D. Sumner singing bass.
Elvis Presley loved gospel music and attended many of the Blackwood concerts at the Ellis Auditorium in Memphis. When his mother, Gladys Presley, died in 1958, Elvis and his father asked the Blackwoods to sing at her funeral.
Tickets for this event are $16. Reservations are not required, but are strongly suggested. When the Lofte last hosted The Blackwood Brothers in 2008, the event was completely sold-out. More information can be found on the Lofte’s website, www.Lofte.com, or by calling the box office at (402) 234-2553. Please join us on Sunday, April 25th at 2pm for this wonderful concert event!
