Eagle Garage Sale Days will be June 1, 2 and 3 this year. If you are interested in posting your garage sale on the map you will be able to pick up a form at several businesses around town. For a very small fee your address will then be added to the map that will be distributed to businesses in Eagle. We are unsure at this time if there will be a pick up of unwanted items after the garage sales are over. There will be an update on this later on.

 

Eagle Elementary will be having another intruder drill this week. District 145 officials would like the parents and employees to know that maintaining school safety for students and staff is at the forefront of their duties as an educational institution. They have also stated that they will continue to practice various emergency drills throughout each school year.

 

The volunteer organization, Parents and Teachers of Eagle are still looking to fill one of their officers for next year. The position of President Elect for the 2018/2019 school year is unfortunately vacant at this time. As President Elect this officer helps in assisting the President for the current school year and at the end of their one-year term as President Elect they become President of the PTE the following year. Please contact Danielle Smulling or call the Eagle Elementary School at 402-781-2210 if you are interested in this rewarding opportunity.

 

This year there will be two new things at Eagle Fun Day! For those that are interested in sewing please contact me at jbkreikemeier@hotmail.com. The Eagle Quilt Project will bring expert and new sewers together through the art of quilting square creating. Each person will first choose their own pattern then will make a 12 ½ x 12 ½ inch quilt square in a rustic red, white, and blue theme to be given to the Eagle Vision Board members. These squares will be displayed at Eagle Fun Day on June 23 and then pieced together to create an entire quilt. The finished quilt will be ready for auctioning during the Breakfast with Santa function in early December.

 

The second new thing is a spin off of last year's door sign project and the previous year's chair event. The Eagle Vision Board has decided to have each participant in this event create a decorative “porch board.” If you have seen the tall skinny lettered welcome signs outside someone's home on their front steps or porch then that is what they are referring to. You can purchase a blank board for $5 at Patina Joe on Main street in Eagle decorate it and then return your piece to Patina Joe by June 18. These will also then be displayed at Eagle Fun Day but they will be auctioned of by silent auction the day of Eagle Fun Day. The top three highest earning boards will win cash prizes! There is no entry fee to enter your creation into the fun!
