Nebraska Extension in Cass County

Local Interest

All 4-H Clubs and councils are required to submit an Year End Treasurers Report.  This report is due to the Cass County Extension Office on or before January 31, 2018.  This report will be kept on file and is required by the IRS for clubs that have an EIN and file under our subordinate list. Filing the form is necessary to maintain an organization's tax-exempt status.  Clubs/Councils who do not turn in a report will receive a letter from the State Program Leader and will have their right to have money in the name of 4-H taken away.

The Plattsmouth Public Library will receive MakerSpace equipment from the Library Innovation Studios Project beginning the week of October 30. The equipment includes a 3D printer, laser cutter, vinyl cutter, CNC router, embroidery machine, heat press, Arduino, Makey Makey, soldering machine, video creating equipment, and more and will be available for a period of 21 weeks. This would be a great event where your 4-H club could create together! The library is looking for individuals who would like to be trained on the equipment and those who would like to mentor additional users, as well as donations of wood, fabric, and other project-making materials.
