Louisville Daz 2001
Well, it was a touch cooler then we might have wished, but Louisville Daz was a wonderful celebration again this year. The surprise Grand Marshal of the Parade was none other than Jeff of Jeff's Jack and Jill grocery on main street.
Our intrepid photo journalist elf captured some of the look of the celebration and it is available here: http://louisvillenebraska.com/events/daz_report_2001.htm  
Although our valiant Home State Bank softball team was very well coached and displayed great team spirit, they placed 4th in the tournament. Our local Fireman Team took first place, with the Transwood team in second and the East Jaycees team placing third.

The horseshoe tournament was won by Terry Hiatt of Omaha ranking top in singles. The doubles were taken by Terry Hiatt and his wife Dianne.
Second place was taken by the team of Clarence Brandes and Mark Tilton.

A Message from Brett
How many times have we heard the teens complain that there is nothing to do? 
We have an opportunity to correct that, What is it? Ventures - a program for 14-20 yrs old youth, who have completed the 8th grade or above, male and female. 
They run the program, they elect officers and let their imagination run. This program is run through the Boy Scouts of America, but once again is open for both boys and girls.

The program is a combination of community service, leadership training and High adventure. This is supervised by adults, but run by the teens. 

What can they do: Rappel, Mountain climb, Scuba dive, Canoe, river rafting, go to the Olympics, and much more. They can and are encouraged to get involved in the community, help the elderly, participate with Habitat for Humanity, and more. Some of this sounds expensive, but through the program a lot of it doesn't have to be, plus the youth are also responsible for finding ways to raise money to reduce the costs. 

How can this start? Myself, Brett Drake and Teri Metzger are currently working on getting it started. We need an idea of who is interested in participating. 

So if you are in this age group and would like to get more information, or you have kids in this age group and are interested, click here and send me an email, with your name and number, we will be getting things ready soon, but we need the youth to get involved so we can start it, we are also needing adults who would be willing to help supervise the program.

What the Cat Saw...
Hi Hardware Cat Fans!
Well, I had my concerns when Maureen and Larry decided to let those Boy Scouts use our corner lot for a Louisville Daz barbeque stand. I mean, I know it is a great cause and all, and this is the best corner in Louisville for traffic, but all those people munching on barbequed hot dogs and cheese burgers, .. they are gonna scare all the mice away!
Well it turned out pretty well and I have to say that it was a lot of fun watching the parade and sniffing all that tasty food cooking on the corner. I guess it was a good idea after-all everybody seamed to have a great time, and those two never listen to my advice anyway! Meow!

Having fun, and Sniffin those Burgers south of the river....
