BUILD Fundraising Event! 

June 25th - July 4th B.U.I.L.D. will be selling Bellino Fireworks at the vacant lot situated behind the Quik Pik on Hwy 50 & Main Street!

  This important event provides BUILD with funds to support community events throughout the entire year.

(Spring Parade, Last Hot Sunday in July, Ringing in the Season)  

BUILD is in charge of setting up the entire operation.  This is a huge project and we'll need all of the volunteer help we can get, from the Louisville Community.

We need to unload the trailer and setup the stand on June 24th from 5 - 9PM. 

On June 25th – July 4th the Fireworks Stand will be open from 8:00AM - 10:00PM.  We will also be asking for volunteers to help tear down on July 4th from 7-10PM.

The scheduling of workers is being handled by Paul McManis.  If you are interested in working a shift, please give Paul a call at 402-234-3715.

The Season of DEET
Scratching Away
Again in Summer Chiggerville
Time for the College World Series
I am glad that some things, never change. The grass is growing, the storms are brewing, the bats are clinking, and the Chiggers are biting.
- - - - 
I am reminded of the terible loss we suffered last year when the heavens took Ben and the Scouts  from us. None of us is going to forget the moment we heard the news.
We have learned so many times since that day, that there is nothing on earth that is really certain.
Yet, here we are  again, and the grass is still growing, the bats are still clinking, and of course the Chiggers are still biting.
It is really important to enjoy today, each day, and to be decent to the people around you. Most important of all, marinate your tenderloins in Deet
