It’s Nebraska Junk Jaunt Week

It’s Nebraska Junk Jaunt week in Cairo, Nebraska.

Christ Lutheran Church is serving brisket again. Be sure to venture up to the Lutheran church at least once if not twice to eat in person or take some to go.

There are concessions at the Community Center and a full house of vendors.

The Cairo Ball Association is operating the North Ballfield. Lots of vendors this year.

The Village has been notified there are bargains and treasures galore at Planter Paradise.

Junk-tion 2&11 has rounded up KRVN radio to be on site. KRVN is bringing out a fancy new blazer, car not jacket. Be sure to stop by for more details.

Baklava has been baked according to the Big Fat Greeks so be sure to stop in to get some. Located by Baasch Welding.

The Vault and the Watering Hole are both putting out special Junk Jaunt edition menus.

The Big A*# Shed is operating again this year.

Special entertainment happening at the Veteran Memorial Park starting at 9 am on Saturday morning. Watch the amazing and talented Cairo Volunteers pull pipe and install sprinklers. Bring a shovel and assist so you can forever drive by the park and say “I had a piece of building that.”

Steering Meeting Recap

Our purpose is to create a strategic plan for future development, make beatifications and improvements, promote a sense of community and belonging, and foster unified and transparent communication. 

In keeping with our goal to foster unified and transparent communication, I would like to share what we discussed at the latest Steering Meeting.

The Point of Entry Committee (formed out of Steering) hopes to finish the Welcome sign at our East entrance this spring. We are holding a Bags, Brats and Beers Fundraiser at the Community Center on April 4th to finish funding for this project and help fund POE signs for our remaining entrances (South and West). More information on the Fundraiser will be shared separately on this page.

Other projects we discussed and that we will be moving forward with are a pickleball court and a sand volleyball court. We considered the tennis court as a possible location for pickle ball and north of the park on the golf course for sand volleyball. If anyone would be interested in helping with these projects and joining the SVP Committee, please let me know. We hope to get these knocked out quickly.

Mike Stutzman would like us to take full advantage of the Junk Jaunt and proposed an “event within the event” to promote Cairo and our businesses. There is a meeting on February 19th to discuss this further, along with the Junk Jaunt in general. This is an exciting opportunity to take full advantage of the droves of people that come to our town for the Junk Jaunt. 

If you have any questions, or would like to be involved with any of the above, feel free to call or email me (308) 390-4231 or anna.roth23@hotmail.com
