Recession Cancelled!!

The 2008 National Economic Recession

  forced to cancel due to lack of interest in

Louisville, Nebraska

No plans are currently available to re-Schedule
Speculation as to the lack of support for doom and gloom locally centered on a strong work ethic, a positive attitude, strong Community, continued strong real estate demand, sky-high and rising agricultural prices, Click Here , with excellent spring rains. Cass County farmers are eager to supply record demand at record prices.

BUILD Events Committee Update
Plans are on target for "Air Your Art in Louisville."
The BUILD events committee recently visited area art shows to attract
additional  artists for the art fair in the park.
There will be live entertainment throughout the day in the city park as well.
The city parade will be held at 2:00 p.m.
registration forms are here: Click Here
The banner project has been delayed due to time constrictions, but we are looking forward to the "unveiling" of the banners at next year's event.
The events committee is looking into transportation ideas between the various locations where special events are being held; such as Louisville Care Community's Health Fair, 5th St. Studio's ARTflea Market, the Art Gallery's "Thrown and Blown" and Feather's Garden Party.
Louisville will be the place to be on May 17th for "Air Your Art in Louisville!!"

Funny Maples
Bark is worse than the Bite

those Diggers Hotline Flags finally got to me. I decided to go out and actually get some trees. We dug big holes, and cultivatd the soil, and did not get electrocuted - just darn sore.
