HAIGLER HAPPENINGS - September 19, 2014

The summer has been a busy one in the village of Haigler.  An update on happenings and planned events for fall follows:

     The St. Francis Mercantile Equity Exchange (Haigler branch) has been working for many months on the new Highway 34 frontage for gas pumps.  They are in, lights are on, and ready for your business.  Everything is 'state of the art' and a great business addition for Haigler.

     The Village of Haigler's installation of POU reverse osmosis water systems for all residents and businesses is almost completed.  The well re-linings and the water tower work are completed.  New water main improvements on Porter Avenue are in progress.

     The Cornerstone Museum along Highway 34 is beginning to have a new color and look with the stucco work being done.  Plans are also underway for The Station work to begin---becoming a possible tourist stop in the future.  Thanks to matching grant monies from the Hansen Foundation for these projects.

     The Cornerstone Center for Community Services (former Haigler Elementary School) is now owned by the Haigler Community Foundation.  Major events have included the grand opening activities May 24; the 4th of July weekend celebration; and the Labor Day weekend homemade icecream social.  The Haigler Improvement Committee hosted the 13th annual summer BlueGrass Festival in August.  Many thanks to all in our communities who have supported these events. 

     Services continue to grow at the Cornerstone Center for the communities in and near Haigler.  Open on Saturdays from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. are the Sunshine Thrift (summer clearance now in progress) and the Haigler Depot Library.  Working with the Dundy County Library in Benkelman; the Haigler branch offers many new DVD's and books--free to check out as well as being a Wi-Fi Hot Spot.   Just opened last week is the new mini-mall in Suite 1 where you can purchase used books for only 50 cents; and visit vendor sites for jams, jellies, baked & canned goodies, Avon, Creations by Sabrina, Classy Collections of dishes, glassware, furniture, and miscellaneous.  Come visit and see the offerings.

     Upcoming events at the Cornerstone Center include a wellness and open recreation program.  Beginning Saturday, October 4,  basketball, volleyball, table tennis, exercise equipment, and indoor walking space are available.  For only $10, you will be able to purchase an activity card that will offer you 20 visits for any of these activities.  Center your activities at the Cornerstone!  

     For the weekend of November 1 and 2, plans are underway for the Center to host a regional Gun Show.  Watch for further announcements.

     Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 11 for the 7th annual Haigler Fall Tumbleweed Festival held on the Country Schoolhouse Museum Grounds.  Watch for details in fliers and ads coming out soon.

     Haigler is a partner with our other Dundy County communities in the Southwest NE Tourism Coalition.  With a matching grant from the Nebraska State Tourism Commission; this coalition is working on a tourism marketing plan for our region.  This will include a web site and brochures.

     Small communities can make a difference.
