Flag Raising

The July 4 flag raising at Flag Butte will once again be hosted by the Happy Hustlers 4-H Club. 

Five Wishes Workshop

If you were to die tomorrow, would your family know your wishes? What matters to you?

It’s a simple question but has the ability to cause such a big impact on the quality of your healthcare.

We get it. Talking about what type of care and treatment you want in case you can’t speak for yourself is not something one thinks about often.

That’s why Chadron Community Hospital Advance Care Planning Team and Our Saviors Lutheran Church, Chadron, is presenting ‘Five Wishes’.

The ‘Five Wishes’ and Advanced Directive program will provide a video presentation along with free legal documents with practical steps to make your wishes known and honored. There will be a question and answer time with the complete program to last approximately 1 hour. Refreshments will be served.

Location: Our Savior’s Lutheran Church

702 East 9th Street, Chadron, NE

Date: June 30, 2019

Time: 2-3 p.m. 

It is one of the most gut-wrenching moments a family may have to face, when a loved one is too sick to make their own life or death decisions.

Completing ‘Five Wishes’ helps families avoid guessing and guilt, while giving their loved one the care they want and deserve. Everyone over 19 years of age can make their wishes known and honored.

CCL Summer Picnic

There will be a Citizens' Climate Lobby Summer Picnic Potluck June 27 from 6-8 p.m. at 1001 S. Maple St. (home of Roger and Mary Ann Wess).

Come join us for a Citizens’ Climate Lobby summer picnic potluck. Let’s have some fun, get to know one another and engage in some casual discussions regarding our community, our changing climate, and energy independence!

Roger Wess will be available to give tours of his home solar system. Cheryl & Steve Welch will give updates regarding their experience in Washington, DC., lobbying for the newly proposed legislation, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (HR 763).

Bring a dish to share. Family and friends are welcome.

Monday Bike Rides

'Bike riders looking for a group to enjoy a ride with are invited to participate in the Monday Evening Bike Rides each week at 6 p.m. Riders are directed to gather at the First National Bank North Platte parking lot prior to 6 so the ride can begin promptly. You must have your own bike and water, and the group recommends bringing a helmet and reflective clothing.

This ride is for fun only. The route will be on the street so safety is a priority for everyone. Drivers in Chadron are not accustomed to bike groups on the street, so riders will need to be cautious at all times. Most of the route will be in residential areas; however, the route crosses Highways 20 and 385 one to two times. The ride is about one and a half hours with a 10 minute break at the halfway point. The group will not stop for people with flat tires. Call Merle Morford at 308-430-2902 with any questions.
