MANLEY NEWSLETTER

Manley had a nice turnout at the Community Building for the Soup Social last evening!  Thank you all for the great competition as we had to use a tiebreaker to pick the winner.  Laura Heemstra won the $50.00!!! Great soups and desserts.  Better fellowship!  Thank you all for coming out and having a nice relaxing afternoon!

 

Manley Board of Trustees meets the first Thursday of the month in the Community Building at 7PM.  The next one is Thursday, March 3rd.

Mark down Sunday, April 10th on your calendar!!!  The Manley Fire Department will be hosting a Pancake feed from 8 AM to 1:30 PM with pancakes, sausage, biscuits & gravy and fellowship.  This is a big fundraiser for them as they are transitioning to a new system for call outs.  It’s called the I AM RESPONDING SYSTEM.  They can tell who is responding to the firehouse to assist so they can get out quicker to the scene instead of waiting for someone who may not even be on their way.  They are also looking for 10 more volunteers for the Department!  The state has allotted them 25 members and they are only at 15.  Contact Chief Larry if you are interested in becoming a member of this team.

Pillage The Village will take place on Sat., Aug 20, 2016.  If you would like to be a part of the Craft/Vendor show or Flea Market this year, contact Tim Glas (515) 402-7185 or at amsoyscents@outlook.com ASAP!  We will have a flea market, Craft/Vendor Show, Non-profit showcase to go along with our tractor pull, kick ball tourney, city wide garage sales etc.

The Village Trustees are investigating ways to bring money into the community due to aging roads, pumps at the sewer station (1 has already gone down and cost the town around $5,000).  Suggestions are greatly appreciated.

A traffic study is under way currently  on the Spur and Elm St.  A 4th stop sign is being considered to slow drivers down coming into town.  The Cass Co Sheriff’s Department has been asked to provide more enforcement at that corner to stop drivers who fail to stop at the stop sign going out of town (westbound) as well as when the new sign goes up to incoming vehicles (eastbound).  Just  a reminder that running a stop sign or failure to completely stop at a stop sign is a traffic violation.  Please don’t hit someone because you were going over the 25MPH Village Speed Limit and failed to stop at a stop sign.

Remember that Papillion Sanitation has exclusive rights to trash hauling and recycling within the Village limits.  If you ever have an issue, please let our clerk know so she can inform the board.  Also………make sure that your mailing address is reflecting your PO Box, not your street address.

The Manley Community Building is for rent!  Downstairs/Kitchen (up to 25 people) is $50.  The whole building is $100.  For more info and to schedule an event, contact Jolene Dalton, Village Clerk at the office.

If you plan to build, add to, remove, or move a structure, you must talk to Betty Meyer PRIOR to starting the project!

Do you know that Manley has a facebook page???  Check out all the happenings on social media!

A sign will be placed at the front of the community building/Village office this Spring.

The Village Board has secured FREE Radon testing kits for Manley residents!!!  Contact our Village Clerk if you would like one!

If your 911 address is not clearly marked on your residence, you need to get this accomplished immediately.  It is required by Village Ordinance.  If you need assistance in doing this, the Board will help.

If you have anything you would like to have included in the newsletter contact Tim Glas @ Editor@manleynebraska.com

Lofte Annual Meeting and Volunteer Recognition February 28

Manley, NE [February 15, 2016] -  The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley has announced that it will
hold its annual meeting and volunteer recognition event on Sunday, February 28 at 2pm.  2016 marks the
40th season for the theater and this year is being touted as the “Ruby Jubilee.”  

The Board of Directors invites anyone who has volunteered their time (ushers, parkers, actors, set-builders, etc.) made a donation or even attended a show over the years.  This is a family-friendly event and children are welcome.  Refreshments will be served.

Lofte Artistic Director Kevin Colbert says, “The memories of the last forty years are like a tidal wave, so many people, so many stories and so much history.  However, my greatest satisfaction is seeing the family and friends of a performer rush the stage after a show and tell an actor how much they enjoyed a performance.  It’s a feeling of self worth that can last someone a lifetime.”

Lofte Treasurer Ken Patry will present financials.  Ticket Booth Manager, Jean Colbert will give an attendance report.  Elections will be held for board vacancies.  Kevin Colbert will review 2015 and present previews of 2016 and 2017 seasons.  The Lofte will also acknowledge the three most valued volunteers for the past year.
