Welcome to the April 19, 2017 issue of the Avoca, Nebraska Community Newsletter!
Avoca Community Easter Egg Hunt
There was a great turnout for the annual Avoca Community Easter Egg Hunt held this last Saturday at the Avoca Town Hall for children ages 6 months to 10 years old. Hundreds of eggs were spread in three different areas and age groups around the outside Town Hall. The children raced around and gathered as many Easter eggs as they could and headed back inside to turn them in for prizes.
The Lions Club has hosted the event for many years, but is now passing the baton to the Avoca Library Board. If you would like to volunteer or donate to next year's event, contact one of the library board members.

GREENBLATT & SEAY SONGBOOK
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. This concert celebrates over 30 years of musical experiences inspired by their children, their students, and their Schoolhouse home/studio/sanctuary. Light-hearted vocals will blend with the supportive textures of fiddle, harmonica, guitar, nyckelharpa, mandolin, etc.
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.
The concert will be downstairs, and followed by light refreshments, and a chance to chat and even jam with Greenblatt & Seay.
