Hometown Happenings

1/13/2021 – HOT HOMETOWNS on Hot Country 93.1

Hello Crofton! We have experienced many changes in the past several months, and the Crofton Community Club is working hard to keep you up-to-date with public service announcements, closings, cancellations, and postponements. While we plan to continue with social distancing to protect the most vulnerable, we hope to connect with you via radio, social media, email, and phone. Please call your neighbors and loved ones and make sure they have what they need. Remember your local charities, churches, and businesses, and look for ways to support them, even if you cannot patronize them at this time. Be kind and be patient with service providers. You may want to call ahead before going places to make sure that they are accepting visitors. While we may not all be together, know that we are not alone.

The Crofton Community Sign would love to announce your special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, retirements, and congratulatory messages. Please contact Erin Dennis at 402-388-4204 to get information on how to get messages for your loved ones on the community sign. Announcements for nonprofit entities, church, and school events and activities are free.

Crofton Community Club Bucks make GREAT gifts for teachers, pastors, employees, grown children, & friends! They can be redeemed at any of our member locations, keeping dollars right here in our community. A full list of members is available on our website www.crofton-nebraska.com. Please call ahead to order: Larry Cooper at Farmers & Merchants State Bank. 402-388-4344. These “Bucks” work just like a check and cannot be redeemed for cash, so it is best to order in small increments of $10-$20

The Crofton Community Club is always looking for individuals and businesses to strive for the future of Crofton. Dues are reasonable and help support activities in and around the Crofton area. Visit our website or like us on Facebook and print off a new member form, or ask a current member for information. We would love to add you or your business to our list of members in 2021!
