Town Cleanup

Despite the rain and chilly weather Avoca Town Cleanup Day 2017 was a success. 
Several loads were dropped off by  community members at the tractor lot filling the dumpsters.

Thank you to the volunteers and all who took advantage of the event to help keep Avoca beautiful!

Multi-instrumentalists, Greenblatt & Seay, will be sharing their original tunes and stories on Sunday, May 14 at 2:30 PM, in the Old Avoca, Nebraska Schoolhouse.

Greenblatt & Seay have been playing beautiful music together since the night they met.  Both are now Master Artists with the Nebraska Arts Council's Artist-in-the-Schools program, and participate in Humanities Nebraska's Speakers Bureau.
