TONIGHT WED NOV 19 - PLATTSMOUTH 
 
Friends of Chris Ross and Mayan Children will be holding a soup supper fund raiser for Chris’s annual trip to take school supplies to the Mayan jungles of Mexico.

Chris has been making an annual pilgrimage to Mexico for over 20 years now. He visits about 70 remote schools and gives them schools supplies, a few books and a soccer ball.  About 2500 students get a little packet with crayons and a pencil or two and a few other goodies as well. Many students are in need of sandals. There is such great need in these remote areas. Most of the time they are off the radar of their government and have had nothing to write, study or play with since his has visit a year ago.

Come and make a free will donation or drop it off to me and I will see that he get it for this year’s trip. He is still a few thousand short or goal so every dollar counts.

Where: First United Methodist Church

Cass County Fire and Rescue Venturers

The Cass County Mutual Aid Association, in partnership with the Boy Scouts of America will be holding its first monthly Cass County Fire and Rescue Venturers meeting at the Cass County Emergency Management Agency (CCEMA) on Monday, November 24 at 7:00 pm. The CCEMA is located on the northeast corner of the Cass County Fairgrounds.

The program is teen-driven. Members will decide what areas of fire and rescue they would like to investigate and adult advisors will act as resources for the venturing crew, facilitating their learning. Teens who are freshmen in high school through 18 years old are invited to attend. There is a $15 membership fee due at the second meeting. The hope is that, after attaining the age of 19 years old, program participants will join their hometown fire departments, preserving the heritage of volunteering in Cass County. Please call 250-8139 for more information.

 
The Cass County Mutual Aid Association, in partnership with Boy Scouts
of America, is starting a Fire and Rescue Venturing Program for
high-school-aged young adults county-wide.
The purpose of the Fire and Rescue Venturing Program is to recruit and
retain firefighters and EMTs throughout the county. By recruiting
high-school age young adults and exposing them to the exciting careers
of fire and rescue, they will learn the basics of EMS and fire safety
and suppression with the intent of transitioning into their local
volunteer fire departments upon graduation upon their 18th birthdays
or graduation from high school, whichever comes later.

The bi-weekly meetings of the Venturers will be held at the Cass
County Emergency Management Agency in Weeping Water, NE. They will
emulate real fire department business meetings and experienced EMTs,
first responders and firefighters will provide training. The Venturers
will also apply concepts, techniques and skills they have learned
through hands-on activities and mock rescue drills outside of their
meeting times.

They will have roles and responsibilities within the program mirroring
a real fire department as well, with adult advisor counterparts.
Through this model, the Fire and Rescue Venturing Program will provide
Venturers with leadership opportunities, the ability to steer their
own program, to have some control over what areas of fire and EMS they
want to explore and to give them opportunities for success.

The Cass County Mutual Aid Association Venturing Program, although
focused on fire and rescue, will also adhere to the core goals of the
Boy Scouts of America Venturing Program. Young adults involved in
Venturing will experience a program that is fun and full of challenge
and adventure, become a skilled training and program resource for Cub
Scouts, Boy Scouts, and other groups, acquire skills in the areas of
fire and rescue, experience positive leadership from adult and youth
leaders and be given opportunities to take on leadership roles, and
have a chance to learn and grow in a supportive environment full of
fun and adventure.

Venturers are expected to know and live by the Venturing Oath and Code.
They promise to be faithful in religious duties, treasure their
American heritage, help others, seek truth and fairness and act with
honor, dignity and fairness.
 
There is a reward and recognition program associated with Venturing which will honor participants for their achievements on a quarterly and an annual basis.
The Venturing Program participants will work
together on a collective goal and, at the same time, will be able to
explore other areas of expertise and may excel independently from the
group.

The hope of the Mutual Aid Association is that this Venturing Program
will truly be a county-wide, collaborative effort with each fire
department taking some ownership and contributing to the program in
whatever capacity in which it is able.

Teens who are interested in joining the Cass County Mutual Aid
Association’s Venturing Program or adults willing to assist are
encouraged to call the program coordinator, Ann Robbins, at 250-8139
for more information. Brochures explaining the program are available
at the Cass County Emergency Management Agency and at individual fire
departments throughout the county.

Max Leaves for Iraq
Louisville Gets Closer to the War

It all becomes real when one of our own is in harms way. Lets show some Louisville support!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 

 I think we are all relieved to have the endless Campaign Commercials over.

Hey, What was THAT all about?

Now we can all go back to watching our non-stop reality TV programs.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

Every once in a while we get a peek at the News, and maybe we are reminded that 170,000 Americans  are out fighting in Iraq. Recently they were joined by Max Cooley from Louisville.

I know Max

max_cooley.jpg

He can get a little testy if you mess with him, and now he is packing heat.  If I were al-Qaeda I would fold the tent and lamb outa there. Max is a tough cookie.

As tough as Max is, the Folks at the American Legion and lots of Max's friends are working hard to put together some extra  comfort/care and show our appreciation for the  sacrifice Max and his buddies are making on our behalf.

We have learned from their letters, and from others that have been there certain items are very much prized, and very hard to come by in a hot, dry and dusty War Zone.

This is a great compiled list:

  My 2 Cents: If you are not sure what you should contribute, take the first letter of your last name, and match it up to an item on the list, take the first letter of your first name, and match it up to a second item - think for yourself: What would you hope for if you were over there?

Ask Jeff or Ken at Jeff's Jack and Jill for suggestions
