Ice Cream Social, Band Concert at Pawnee City


The Pawnee County Arts Council will bring back its annual Ice Cream Social and Band Concert on Sunday, June 26. Arts Council Board Members will begin serving ice cream and cakes at 7 p.m. on the Court House lawn in Pawnee City. Those attending are asked to bring lawn chairs or blankets for their comfort.

The Southeast Nebraska Community Band will perform at 7:30 p.m. The band always plays a wide variety of music from Broadway musicals, patriotic marches, big band tunes and polkas.

The Southeast Nebraska Community Band is directed by Dennis Ehmke. It has over 50 members from across southeast Nebraska and Missouri. They have been playing over 20 years under the sponsorship of the Pawnee County Arts Council.

Each season, they book more than 15 concerts in towns throughout Southeast Nebraska in addition to their annual River Boat concert and they generally add even more concerts to their busy schedule each year.

The Pawnee County Arts Council is offering this program to southeast Nebraska as part of the 2022 season of programs. Join this worthy group. You may join or renew your membership by contacting one of the Arts Council board members serving ice cream that evening. Membership in the Arts Council provides funding to help bring a broad variety of artistic programs to our community.

The Arts Council recently presented a program by a Humanities Nebraska Speaker, Charlotte  Endorff, about the North Platte Canteen. In 2021, it co-sponsored two programs with the Pawnee County Promotional Network, both at the ZCBJ Hall at DuBois. Acclaimed ragtime pianist accompanied silent movies at Silent Movie Night in November, and the Czechlanders Orchestra performed at Polka Christmas in December.

If you need auxiliary assistance, please contact Sharla Cerra, 316-617-3524, by Thursday, June 23. Free will donations are welcome. In case of rain, the event will be held at the Presbyterian Church, 801 G in Pawnee City, Neb.
