The Exeter Senior Center was full of graduating seniors and their grandparents.
It's a little early but these seniors are ready to dig into some breakfast.
The Exeter Senior Center once again hosted their Senior to Senior breakfast. This gives the graduating seniors an opportunity to celebrate their graduation with their grandparents and great-grandparents.
Nine years ago the Exeter Senior Center started the program based on the idea of then advisory board member Elva McBride. McBride recalled a similar program in her hometown of Mc Cook. At the program, Fillmore County Senior Services Advisor Brenda Motis stated, "This has become something the grandparents look forward to, a special time for them to spend with their grandkids."
The center had rolls, muffins and donuts on the table for the guests and served everyone a breakfast casserole. Coffee and juice was poured by Senior Center volunteers. The color themes were purple and black as chosen by the graduating class of 19, all of whom were present.
After the meal was served Motis took the opportunity to talk to the group. She reminded the seniors that "No matter what, always remember you'll always have a link to the Exeter and Milligan communities and family and friends and neighbors like us who are thinking of you and supporting you all the way. From all of us at the Exeter Senior Center, the best of luck to each of you."
When they finished their meal, the graduating seniors were asked to introduce themselves, tell the group about their future plans and introduce their grandparents.
In addition to serving the breakfast the Senior Center also held a drawing for Casey's gift certificates. The female gift went to Ana Androyna and the male gift went to James Strate. They also drew names for all of the balloon bouquets that were used as decorations.
The volunteers who made the event possible were Elva McBride, Evelyn Elznic, Evelyn Michl, Doris Hall, Roma Rhodes, Shirley Janes, Elaine Krejci, Marion Geiger, Tess Moor and Darlene Becker.

He definitely has a story to tell. A story of Olympic gold, but the story has a strange twist. How do you fit bobsledding onto the plains of Nebraska?
Curt Tomasevic didn't even think of bobsledding while he fought his way onto the Cornhusker football team. Growing up in Shelby, Neb. the closest he ever came to a bobsled was "riding on a saucer sled behind a four-wheeler."
Now, he has won an Olympic gold medal in bobsledding, a World Cup gold medal and a World Title all in bobsledding.
He spoke to the Exeter-Milligan students and community members on Wednesday afternoon in Exeter and gave them a peak into what he believes are the roots of his success.
Shelby. It's the small town of Shelby "690 people raised $25,000 for me. No one Shelby had ever seen a bobsled. They did it on faith, believed in me. They didn't know I would make it to the Olympics," said Tomasevic.
He shared both his story with the group and things that have made a difference. He emphasized how small towns work and support each other recalling an incidence when he was young where their football coach took the boys to help a farmer when they were supposed to be practicing football "because that's what small towns do. They do for each other."
He named some of the many things he has done because he had that backing, visited the White House, watched the shuttle launch, joined Pearl Jam on stage, rode in a F-16, been on The Late Show with David Letterman, pictured on the cover of Sports Illustrated, will be throwing out the first pitch at a Chicago Cubs game.
And while he shared with the crowd the outfit and shoes of a bobsledder and showed the clip of the run where they won the gold medal he wanted them to see the root of his success. He explained that they have to first of all "remember where you have been, then, where you are and finally where you are going. If you can do these things you will be successful. Remember your roots."
Tomasevic kept the gold medal securely around his neck while he took photos with students and community members and also signed autographs. Tomasevic was introduced by Exeter-Milligan science teacher Grant Gabel who is also from Shelby and thanked by Principal Lindley Schlueter whose wife Melanie is from Shelby.
Free money? That is what Exeter-Milligan elementary students are smiling about.
As part of a nationwide program to teach children to save, First National Bank in Exeter employee's Sharla Dinneen and Tammy Sladek visited all of the Exeter-Milligan elementary students.
Each child was given a $1 coin to encourage them not only to save money, but also to introduce the concept of the $1 coin and the impact that the U.S. Mint hopes it has on the nation.
During the program the children reviewed the concept of "going green" and the three R's of recycling. Currently the U.S. Mint has been promoting the "green" benefits of the new $1 coin. Dinneen shared during the program how the new coin is 100% recyclable and in circulation, outlasts the paper dollar bill by over 28 years. "The U.S. Mint has even been making personal phone calls to banks to encourage the use of the coins," according to Alan Emshoff, President of First National Bank in Exeter.
The Exeter bank, which has participated in the National Teach Children to Save Day program for 13 years did so because they "wanted to promote to the kids the difference between wants and needs, savings and interest and to be good stewards," said Emshoff.
Dinneen enjoys seeing "how excited the children are. . . they have such a positive reaction. They truly want to save."
In addition to giving each elementary student a $1 coin, they received a pencil, a snack and a drink from the bank. Although the bank participates in the national event, it is entirely funded by the First National Bank in Exeter.
Over 75 banks in Nebraska participate in the National Teach Children to Save Day with 80,000 bankers and volunteers reaching approximately 3.4 million school children.
The free weekly programs, for kids pre-school through 3rd grade, start June 4.
Stop in the library or call 266-3031 to register and for program days and time.
Come join the fun and dive into a good Book!
