February Happenings

Heart Confetti

Happy February! Happy Valentines Day! We have made it through the long cold month of January. February is here and this year offers up 29 days for Leap Year! Spring is inching it’s way closer and closer. We are gaining more daylight every day!


Have you thought about what you are going to get your Valentine this year? Be sure to SHOP LOCAL this Valentines Day! Our local businesses are always happy to help you find exactly what you are looking for. If you can’t find it, ASK!!! You can always do gift cards and certificates too. There are many options to choose from—jewelry, candy, flowers, food, pampering, clothes, candles and so much more. Make your dining reservations in advance to help the restaurants know how many people to expect.


Are you ready to start thinking “green”? St. Pat’s is only a few weeks away! The theme for the parade this year is “150 Years of Green”. You will find a parade entry form inside. I am working on the 2024 St. Pat’s schedule so please send me your events right away. We always like to get the posters done by the middle of February! As soon as the t-shirts are selected, printed and on sale, I will let everyone know. We want those available around the first of March.


Have you sent in your nominations for the Community Service Award, Customer Service Award and the Community Ambassador Award? Please send your nomination’s name and write up to the chamber office at We need plenty of time to get the awards ordered, so please send soon!


While we are working feverishly on the St. Patrick’s Day Celebration, we are also very busy with the Summerfest Celebration! You should have already received your Summerfest Rodeo Sponsorship letter! We will be announcing our concert performers as soon as we get our last confirmation! We are as excited to announce as you are to hear who it will be. Our headliner had a hit in 2023 that raced up the charts. That’s the only hint I will give for now!


There is an addition to our Summerfest Celebration this year. On Friday evening and Saturday, the O’Neill Airport will be host to the Nebraska State Fly-in and Airshow. More details to come when the time gets closer. This will be huge for our community! Many volunteers are going to be needed for all the Summerfest Events!
