The Nerd @ Washington Community Center

Now an aspiring young architect in Terre Haute, Indiana, Willum Cubbert has often told his friends about the debt he owes to Rick Steadman, a fellow ex-GI whom he has never met but who saved his life after he was seriously wounded in Vietnam. He has written to Rick to say that, as long as he is alive, “you will have somebody on Earth who will do anything for you”—so Willum is delighted when Rick shows up unexpectedly at his apartment on the night of his thirty-fourth birthday party. But his delight soon fades as it becomes apparent that Rick is a hopeless “nerd”—a bumbling oaf with no social sense, little intelligence and less tact. And Rick stays on and on, his continued presence among Willum and his friends leading to one uproarious incident after another, until the normally placid Willum finds himself contemplating violence—a dire development which, happily, is staved off by the surprising “twist” ending of the play.

Sandhill Crane & Prairie Chicken Bus Trip @ Bus Tour
Mar 24 @ 6:00 am – Mar 26 @ 7:00 pm

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: February 22.

This year’s trip begins by visiting the Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and the first phase of its new Asian Highlands exhibits.  We will observe the remarkable sandhill crane migration from the blinds at Grand Island’s Crane Trust Nature Center along the Platte River, home to the largest crane roost in the world.  The cranes stage at this area to refuel on their northward trip to their breeding grounds.  Seeing this large group of cranes and hearing their rattling calls is truly a spectacular experience.  The trip will continue to Burwell, NE and the Switzer Ranch, home of Calamus Outfitters, to view prairie chicken booming during the courting season.  This trip is interspersed with stops highlighting points of interest along the route.

National Geographic named this annual migration event as one of North America’s two greatest natural wildlife phenomena, the other being Alaska’s Caribou migration. The New York Times bestseller, 1,000 Places To See Before You Die calls it a “must see.”
