Hometown Happenings

11/18/2020 – 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.

Due to scheduling conflicts, the next Crofton Community Club meeting has been moved to Monday, November 23rd, at 7:30pm. This meeting will be held online via Zoom. Contact a CCC member for the link to join the meeting.

The Crofton Senior Center will have Brunch on Wednesday November 25th at 10AM and will be closed Thursday and Friday for Thanksgiving.

Let the Senior Center do your holiday baking. They will be offering Sugar Cookies, Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Ritz Cookies, Rolo Pretzels, Crème de Menthe Bars, Fudge, Soda Cracker Toffee, & Peanut Clusters for $5 per dozen. They will be doing the baking on Saturday December 5. They must have your order by 2:00 Monday, November 30. You can order single items by the dozen or get the variety plate! Pick up will begin Monday December 7 or they can offer delivery for an additional donation. This is their December Fund Raiser!

Can’t decide what to get a loved one for Christmas? You can purchase meal gift cards from the Senior Center! Give Mary a call for details!

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.

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!
