Banner School Groups Going On The Road


September 19, 2019

Good morning friends and neighbors near and far! Hope this beautiful fall weather has been just what you needed. Some of  you might have had a little more rain then necessary this past week, don’t know.  Just hoping that all is well on your end.

This week here in the Burg three different groups at the Banner County School have activities taking them away from home and we are wishing them good luck, safety, fun and learning!

The high school football team will be heading to Paxton today for a 6 p.m. game versus Med Valley.

Tomorrow, September 20, the Wildcat Adventure Seekers will be headed to Yellowstone for a few days of adventure. This trip is the culmination of several days of Enrichment Fridays for this particular group.

Then on Monday, September 23, the FFA students that are involved in Land Judging will head to Tecumseh for State Land Judging competition. They will be in Tecumseh and Holt County through the 25th before heading home.

Safe travel to all.

As a heads-up, the junior high football team will have a game here verses Guernsey at 2 p.m. on the 26th, next Thursday.

Beginning on Friday and through Sunday, Sept. 20-22, the folks in Dalton will be celebrating the 92nd year of the Dalton Fall Festival. They will begin with a potato bar on Friday at the Leyton High School from 5-7 p.m. and continue throughout the weekend with a parade, volleyball, craft fair, horseshoes and more. Sunday they will finish the weekend up with a free BBQ.

Also on the 20th, the Legacy of the Plains Museum in Gering will host Puzzles of the Past at 9 a.m. To find out what town is featured, call 436-1989.

The Food Truck Fridays with … food and music will be at the 18th Street Plaza in Scottsbluff on the evening of the 20th from 4-8 p.m. – and places such as Scottsbluff, Bridgeport and Morrill are still ripe with Farmers Markets!

The 3rd annual Hispanic Film Festival will be held at the Midwest Theater on the 20th and 21st. Movies begin each evening at 7:30 p.m. and are free.

From the 21st to 22nd, the 23rd annual Harvest Festival at the Legacy of the Plains Museum will take place with this year’s featured crop being the sugar beet. I still remember the first time my kids tasted a “sugar” beet. Ugh! Kinda like vanilla, so deceiving.

There will also be an equipment parade, food, freshly dug potatoes and live music. On Tuesday the 24th there will be a Community Health Fair from 8-11 a.m. at the Residency in Scottsbluff. 2100 Circle Drive.

Also on the 24th  at 9 a.m. the Greener Garden Greenhouse workshop for the month will be meeting out at the NP-NRD and the focus will be on a new way to use old wood in your garden. If you have an interest here, please call 632-2749 for more information. 

Down south in Kimball the folks at the Goodhand theater will be showing the movie ‘ Shazam’! on September 20 & 21 at 7 p.m. and as a matinee on the 22nd at 2 p.m.

They also will do some health testing on the 26th with Life Line Screening at the Kimball Event Center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

Happy Anniversary to Mr. & Mrs. DJ Griffiths, Jim Revelle and Scott Ansley.

Happy Happy Birthday to Carli Fulk, Aubree Jones, Floyd Hein III, Jack Revelle, Wade Lindand Robin Brown.

Here is another heads-up. Later on – next month – the Harrisburg Community Church will be having a chilli cook off and a pie baking contest. Everyone is invited and more then welcome to attend. I will have more details later on, but am letting you know so that you can be thinking on your favorite pie. Take care and see ya next time.
