Join us for our annual FREE SCREENING of It’s A Wonderful Life hosted by TRIUS FEDERAL CREDIT UNION.
George Bailey has spent his entire life giving of himself to the people of Bedford Falls. He has always longed to travel but never had the opportunity in order to prevent rich skinflint Mr. Potter from taking over the entire town. All that prevents him from doing so is George’s modest building and loan company, which was founded by his generous father. But on Christmas Eve, George’s Uncle Billy loses the business’s $8,000 while intending to deposit it in the bank. Potter finds the misplaced money, hides it from Billy, and George’s troubles begin.

Sign the Petition/Learn About Medical Marijuana
A majority of states have legalized medical marijuana but Nebraska isn’t one of those states. We will hear from a state-wide campaign pushing for a constitutional amendment to allow Nebraskans the ability to treat their bodies with medical cannabis.
On October 11 at Tru Café Nebraskans for Sensible Marijuana Laws will join us to give us insight on their campaign and give you an opportunity to sign the petition. This event is organized by Buffalo County Young Democrats and Nebraskans for Sensible Marijuana Laws and hosted by Tru Cafe.
