Murdock News - January 2, 2019

Happy New Year!! 

I hope your Christmas was wonderful and you are looking forward to 2019.

As with many people I find myself looking back at 2018 and recapping all the positive things that happened. Well, that's what I'm going to do here. 

Murdock is a wonderful community full of wonderful people and we wouldn't be what we are without the thousands of hours volunteers put into the community.

I know I'm going to leave something out but here are a few things that happened this year. But none of these would be possible WITHOUT volunteers.

Many say Murdock is centered around the high school, and yes that may be true. There is always a basketball game, volleyball game, or baseball game to attend if you want to get out and socialize, volunteer at concessions, or coach t-ball.

Don't forget about the choir and band events and concerts as well as One-Act Plays, fish feed, and Speech events.

All you have to do is walk a few blocks for sports and music entertainment.

We may be small, but we are mighty. The churches are vibrant and active with soup suppers and youth group activities.

Murdock has always had a strong youth baseball and softball organization. Pretty much on any summer evening, you can watch a practice or game. The Murdock baseball concessions are legendary!! Some people just come over to the ball field for supper.

Don't forget about the Annual Joy of Music, Market to Market Run, Veterans Day Program

Of course, the biggest event in Murdock is the 4th of July celebration.

It draws thousands, yes, thousands of people to Murdock and it couldn't happen without the volunteers. The Lions Club serves lunch and sells their famous Palisade Peaches.

So much of keeping Murdock friendly, attractive and clean go to the Village Board, and especially the M.I.T Committee who arranged for Murdock Clean Days and Paper Shredding event.

Of course there were the Scarecrow and Christmas Tree displays.

Murdock MIT Team

The Murdock Improvement Team has great plans ahead for 2019

If you would like to participate contact Mary McHugh who was the Team Leader this year.

Murdock also hosted the Market to Market Run and a Four-Wheeler ATV Fun Run, both of which brought hundreds of people who would have never heard of Murdock to town.

We are situated between Omaha and Lincoln with EASY access to I-80, many people would love to live in a small town, close with a vibrant community such as ours. We take it for granted. Sooooo many people would LOVE to have what we have in Murdock. 

A family-oriented community where our kids can play in the park, walk to school.

Let's continue to celebrate Murdock and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Banner MurdockLionsClubThe Murdock Lions club would once again thank everyone who has supported us in the last year. It was a very successful year of fundraising and accomplishing our goals. In November of each year, we split our funds into several projects and donate money to organizations that need our help.

This year we donated money to the Murdock Pride committee (M.I.T), Murdock Fire Dept., and the Cass Country Food Bank in Elmwood. We also support the DARE program in our school and we provide eye testing in the elementary school each year with the very best equipment. This project has been very much appreciated by the school administrators.

Other outside donations include the Weeping Water Legion (color guard), Lions Eyesight program, Lions International, and this year a donation to a service dog training facility in Ohio.

The Lions will also continue to provide three scholarships to E-M graduates who have shown the willingness to volunteer and help with community projects.

This year we also would like to thank the many Weeping Water residents who purchased peaches. We sold 110 boxes which helped us to be able to increase our donations.

We were saddened this year with the deaths of two of our long-standing members. The club is small but might. Please consider becoming a Lions member. We meet once a month (3rd Monday) and have two major activities each year, the Fourth of July lunch stand and selling of the peaches. 

Once again, thank you to all who have supported us!


Without community participation, Murdock would wither away and die. We are vibrant and many in Cass County recognize this. It wouldn't be possible without the thousands of hours every year from volunteers.

Next week I'm going to provide a list of where you can volunteer in Murdock, if you have ideas please send them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
