From the Avoca Board of Trustees:

Reminder: Motorized vehicles are NOT allowed in Tefft park!!

The Fire Department recently had a scare with children driving a 4-wheeler and another on a mini bike.  Parents PLEASE be aware of where your children are and what they are doing.  This could have had a tragic ending.  Additionally, motorized vehicles ARE NOT allowed in the park. 
Children under the legal driving age should not be driving these vehicles on the streets.


Cass County Recycle Trailer

For the past years Avoca has been fortunate to have a recycle trailer in the Village for all Cass County residents.  These trailers were purchased with grant money for the County.  We want to keep the trailer here. 

Your help is needed!  Garbage is being placed in the recycle trailer bins. If this continues, we may lose the trailer.  See the list below for items that are allowed. If you see someone putting items not allowed in the trailer, please report it to the Village Office so it can be addressed.

Lofte Community Theatre
‘Boeing Boeing’ Ready for Take Off at the Lofte Theatre!
Manley, NE [October 2, 2017] -  The Lofte Community Theatre announces the opening of its Fall farce, Marc Camoletti’s fast-paced comedy, ‘Boeing Boeing!’  The production opens Saturday, October 14 on the Lofte’s main stage.
Set in the bustling1960s, Bernard is a swinging bachelor who has the world on a string:  a flat in Paris and three gorgeous stewardesses whom are all engaged to him at the same time without knowing about each other.  However, Bernard’s life encounters turbulence when his friend Robert comes for a visit and a new speedier Boeing jet throws off his carefully planned itinerary.  Catastrophe looms when all three stewardesses come into town simultaneously and friend Robert keeps forgetting what helpful lies he’s told to whom!
Starring in the show as the troubled Bernard is Doug Rothgeb of Omaha.  His best friend Robert is played by Robert Carrera of Bellevue.  The bevy of beautiful stewardesses are played by Aubree Sweeney of Plattsmouth, Brenna Thompson of Lincoln and Abigail Fletcher of Omaha.  Fan favorite Melinda Mead of Plattsmouth plays the bad-tempered housekeeper, Berthe.
Directed by Kevin Colbert, production dates are October 14, 15, 19-22 and 27-29.  Thursday through Saturday curtain times are 7pm. Sunday performances are 2pm matinees.  Tickets are $19 each and advance reservations can be made by calling the Lofte box office at 402.234.2553.
