May Happenings

Graduation Ceremony

HAPPY MAY! Spring has sprung! It’s so good to see the green grass and the flowers blooming again. It’s like our world is waking up from a long sleep. School will be out very soon! The kids will be enjoying the last days of school events and activities. The soccer fields are busy and soon the baseball and softball fields will be too. We begin our transition from our spring schedules to our summer schedules.


CONGRATULATIONS to all the graduates from O’Neill Public and St. Mary’s High Schools. Our community is proud of you! As you spread your wings and find yourselves, remember, we would love to have you come back to your hometown to live, work and raise your family. And congratulations to all the parents that have raised these fine young men and women.


We are going full steam ahead on the preparations for the Summerfest Celebration coming up the third weekend in July, the 19th 20th and 21st. We are going to need many volunteers to help with the celebration activities, especially the rodeo, concert and the Nebraska Fly In Air Show being held on Friday night and Saturday. You have already received your sponsorship letters for the rodeo and concert. Please take a look at those advertising opportunities at the biggest event in our area! You can return your sponsorships in the self addressed envelopes that were included with the sponsorship letters. Be watching for Sign-up Geniuses coming out for your opportunity to sign up to help with the events. This weekend is going to be HUGE in our community with all we have going on! In addition to the above events, there will be Sidewalk Sales Downtown on Saturday, Car Show Saturday in Ford Park, Church in the Park on Sunday Morning, and more. If your business or organization is planning something for the weekend, please send it to the chamber office so it can get on the poster.


Just a reminder when your business is taking shamrock bucks, PLEASE be sure to have the customer redeeming them, sign the back. Remind all your employees that this is a must. Once they are signed, THEY CAN NOT BE REUSED!! We’ve had reports of businesses taking them, not having the customer sign them, and then they are reusing them. If there is a signature on the back, they have already been redeemed! DO NOT ACCEPT shamrock bucks that have been previously signed by someone other than the person redeeming them. You will find some with business stamps on the back, this is fine as that business gave them out. This is a wonderful program for our community and we want to keep it going.
