Rhonda and Michael B. stopped into the Byway Barn on July 2 just looking for a travel book but instead found so much more. The couple is from mid-Arkansas and on their way to Mount Rushmore. They had stopped by four Visitorâ€™s Centers after driving into Nebraska looking for the Nebraska Travel Book, finding none that were open.
In Broken Bow, their luck changed. Chard Hirsch had opened the Byway Barn less than half an hour earlier and she has a plethora of brochures ranging from Nebraska maps, attraction brochures and, of course, Nebraska Travel Books.
CALLAWAY â€“ NIGERIA â€“ A partnership has been formed that transcends a formidable distance, from Callaway, Nebraska, to Bagrima, Nigeria, and back. Yes this is a partnership based on need, but even more so it is based on a desire to serve.
The Callaway United Methodist Church has a sister church in Bagrima, Nigeria, and through this partnership the village has been able to open a school, a clinic, dug a deep water well, and it has accomplished these goals in less than five years.
