Box Butte Co. activity report, May 18

-To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow!! Hope abounds in the blooms of Spring. Gardening whether for its beauty, sustenance, or any reason at all, is a wonderful way we can get out now and enjoy the weather. There are too many benefits to list here, but I encourage you to dig in the dirt and get to our local garden centers and floral shops for all your needs. Many of them offer pick up or delivery services to keep you safe during these difficult times. This is a timeless activity for all ages from babies to baby boomers! Never underestimate the healing power of a quiet moment in the garden.

-Cruisin’ the Butte is on for this Saturday with $5 popcorn sold to you right in your vehicle thanks to the Alliance Theatre and a huge celebration for our 2020 Senior class graduates.  A very heartfelt congratulations goes out to our Alliance Senior class of 2020!!! For more details you can visit Alliance Nebraska, Our Hometown on Facebook.

-Please remember to follow your local, state, and national guidelines for health and safety for any activities. Also, due to the current evolving status of the COVID-19 virus, all events are subject to change. Please contact each event’s coordinator directly to verify any changes or cancellations.
