Hometown Happenings

05/20/2020 – HOT HOMETOWNS on KK93

Hello Crofton! We have experienced many changes in the past several weeks, 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.

If you are interested in helping with Community Clean up this year, please contact Erin Dennis. It will be done differently to comply with social distancing recommendations, but the community club would still like to help the community get some spring cleaning done this month.

The Crofton Community Club’s membership drive is happening now. Please join as individuals or as a business to support the Community Club’s activities.

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.

The Crofton Senior Center will be closed to in-house meals and all activities until further notice. They will be providing home delivered meals for anyone and curbside pick-up meals for anyone. Please call by 10 am to reserve your meal. 402-388-2365.

The Senior Center is accepting donations for the Things are Looking Up ceiling and entry project. Please contact the senior center about how you can help.

Main Street Treasures will be closed until further notice. No donations of items for sale can be accepted until they re-open. In the meantime, please help the volunteers by carefully cleaning and neatly folding items to donate.

Contact Wendy Wieseler or the Crofton Volunteer Field on Facebook if you have a child interested in playing youth softball or baseball this summer. The planning process is still underway, and they would like a headcount for planning purposes.

Crofton Community Garden Plots are available for $25 per plot with water included. Contact the city office at 402-388-4766 for more information.

The American Legion and Auxiliary meetings for May have been cancelled. Memorial Day services are also cancelled, but you are encouraged to visit a cemetery and/or a memorial to pay your respects and to remember what Memorial Day is all about.

Check with your church leaders and church bulletins for lists of reopening guidelines for worship services in the coming weeks.

Crofton Community Club members: If you have an update or information to send to the public, please email us at croftoncommunityclub@gmail.com or message us on Facebook, and we will try to share your information. Continue to watch our social media pages and website at www.crofton-nebraska.com for more information.

Main Street Treasures is a non-profit thrift store operated by volunteers. The store sells clothing, housewares, small furniture, small appliances, lawn & garden items, toys, baby stuff, hunting accessories, and other items. Proceeds benefit the Crofton area. Main Street Treasures is open Wednesdays 10am to 8pm, Thursdays and Fridays, 10am to 6pm, Saturdays 10am to 3pm, and the first Sunday of the month 10am to 1pm.

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 are 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!
