The Angels Are In !!


Angel Tree at Home State Bank - Louisville Tradition

Louisville Jaycee Foundation has once again placed an Angel Tree at Home State Bank, and paper angels are ready to picked up!
Pick up an Angel (or two) - purchase the gift listed on the Angel, wrap it up and tape the Angel back on the gift and return to HSB before December 19th. Jacees will make sure all gifts are delivered to Louisville Area kids before Christmas.

"Thanks for all the support in the past and hope this year is a good turnout of supporters!
If you can't shop, cash donations are accepted and items like hats, scarves, undergarments, and personal items are great! Contact me if you have any questions!"

"Christmas Survival Guide" Opens at Lofte


Manley, NE [November 17, 2011] -The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley will open its holiday Christmas musical, "Christmas Survival Guide," on Saturday December 3.  Written by James Hindman and Ray Roderick with music by John Glaudini, this show is a musical revue that takes a wry look at what can be a very stressful season.  Armed with a copy of a new book, "A Christmas Survival Guide," the characters charge into the holiday searching for the true meaning of the holiday.

Artistic Director Kevin Colbert described the show as a "Perry Como Christmas special with lots of songs and comedy sketches that will keep audience members entertained and laughing out loud."  Starring in the show are Brandy Palatas and Allison Tiller of Omaha; Dan Hendrickson, Benjiman Pettiford and Cory Misek of Lincoln, Cynthia West Sheldon and Janet Sorensen of Elmwood; and Anne Pope of Eagle.  Musical Director is Betty Colbert and choreographer is Noelle Bohaty.

Show dates run December 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 15, 16, 17 and 18.  Curtain is at 7:30pm on Thursdays through Saturday and Sunday afternoons at 2pm.  Ticket prices are $17.  There are special rates for groups over 20 so this may be a fun alternative to the traditional holiday office party.  

The Lofte is located just east of the intersection of Hwy 50 and Hwy 1 in Cass County near the village of Manley.  Those inquiring about tickets may call the Lofte Box Office at (402)234-2553 or visit the Lofte website at www.Lofte.com
