Community Garden Planning

The Kearney Sustainability movement is having an initial meeting to talk about starting a community garden in Kearney. Access to a community garden helps promote healthy habits and creates environmental awareness.

We hope you can join us to help with the planning on what you would like your garden to look like!

Exhibit Reception “Essential Yet Unseen: Servant Life in the 1890s”

Join us February 8th for a reception at the G.W. Frank Museum of History and Culture to officially unveil our new permanent exhibit: “Essential Yet Unseen: Servant Life in the 1890s.” This unique exhibit offers visitors a chance to step back in time into a recreated 1890s servant’s quarters. The exhibit will provide an intimate glimpse into the private, everyday lives of these essential, yet traditionally “unseen,” people that worked and lived at the Frank family home. Come see and imagine what life was like for a major part of Kearney’s late nineteenth century population!

It’s a Wonderful Life – The World Theatre

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.
