Elmwood Rescue Virtual Turkey Trot Fundraiser

Turkey Trot Logo

We had to unfortunately postpone our annual Waffleman fundraiser due to COVID.  We are falling back onto our run fundraiser from last year but we are doing it virtually this year.  
 
Elmwood Rescue relies heavily on donations, fundraising and 911 calls to fund our ambulance service since we don't get any Tax Money.  We are 100% self-sufficient on those options.  We use the money to help with upkeep and maintenance on our equipment and vehicles.  We also provide Free EMS standbys at all E-M Knight Home Football games, yearly scholarships to high school seniors, training for our members, reimbursement for new EMTs on our service (it costs approximately $1,500 to send 1 student to EMT class).
 
Below is the link to sign up.  Everyone that signs up before October 15th will get a T-Shirt and a Medal.  Anyone who signs up after October 15th will not be guaranteed a medal.

NOW THAT YOU'VE REGISTERED, GET THE FACTS!

There are really NO EXCUSES for failing to vote.  You have to work that day?  No excuse.  Don't have a babysitter?  No excuse.  You don't want to go out in a crowd?  No excuse.  Do you know that any Nebraska resident who is a LEGALLY REGISTERED VOTER may request an EARLY-VOTING BALLOT APPLICATION, (also known as an 'ABSENTEE' ballot)? You don't even need to have a reason, (or an excuse), for the request! 

One excellent reason for voting by absentee, is the weather.  An ice or snow storm, heavy winds or torrential rains could possibly keep you from physically voting on the actual Election Day.  No worries about that with your mail-in vote either. 

Do you need another good reason for voting by mail? You might get sick and cannot physically go to your polling place.

The following should help you save time:   

  • Cass County NE voters may print the Early Voting Ballot Application HERE.  
  • OR call your local Election Office and ask for one to be mailed to you.  In Cass County NE, that's 402-296-9309.
  • OR in Cass County NE, there is a box located outside the building where you can just pick one up. You may also pick one up at the Election Office inside.  The address is 201 Main Street, Plattsmouth, NE, (white building southeast of the flag pole).

Accurately, completely fill out the form.   Include your name, residence address, phone number, mailing address you want the ballot sent to and your signature.  Even if you do the automatic fill-in form online, you still need to SIGN IT after you print it.  Mail it right away or take it to the Cass County NE Election Office and drop it in the box outside on the southwest wall of the building.

 On September 28th ballots will start to be sent out and you should receive yours shortly thereafter.

So get your Early Voting Ballot Application form filled-out now, before the big rush.  The last day to request an Early Voting Bal

lot to be mailed to you is October 23rd.

Just do it now.  Election Day will be here before you know it!
