September Happenings


School is back in session! The fall sports have kicked off! Teachers, students, staff and parents are making the adjustments to the new schedules. Little ones starting their first year of pre-school and kindergarten while the older kids start high school and college, you can do this. Good luck to all the families from those just beginning their journeys through the school years to those that are finding out what it’s like to be empty nesters.


September brings lots of sports activities, school events, homecomings and here at the chamber office, we will have two ribbon cuttings. One will be at Gotschall and Sholes Law Office on the 2nd and another one in Page at the Kountry Korner Café on the 9th. There will be a Hazardous Waste Collection on the 10th at the soccer fields, a golf tournament at the O’Neill Golf Course, also on the 10th and the Irish ‘Toberfest BBQ and Brew Rib Cook-off and Home Brew Sampling on the 24th.


Have you gotten your team entered in the rib cook off contest yet? It is limited to 30 teams this year and there are already eleven signed up. You will find an entry form inside. If you are thinking about having a team, get your entry form in right away! Bring it to the chamber office with your entry fee to be sure you are in! The event will take place on Saturday, September 24th at the Knights of Columbus Hall in west O’Neill. Thank you to Christensen Farms for your sponsorship of the ribs the competitors will be cooking! The Home Brew Contest will be part of this event again this year. If you have questions, contact Dan Krugman at 402-340-0793. If your business would like to be a sponsor, there is still time! Contact the chamber office by September 9th so we have time to get your logo on the t-shirts with the two upper sponsorship levels.
