CALLAWAY - - The old saying, â€śgood things come in small packagesâ€ť, certainly holds true with the Seven Valleys Museum in Callaway. Though not a large community, this little town boasts one of the nicest museums in the area - and thanks to the efforts of a lot of local volunteers, it is getting even nicer.
The Seven Valleys Historical Society began a major restoration project on the museum the first of this year. They are calling it â€śFacelift Project 2013.â€ť
Deep within the boundaries of the state of Nebraska and along three major highways and BNSF Railroad, lies an amazing group of EMTs and firemen. This well trained team has been paged out too many times to horrific scenes, and yet answers these pages with the utmost professionalism and calm presence of minds (even though their hearts are pounding in wonder of whatâ€™s ahead of them.)â€ť
