COZAD — If good music, good food and good company is all one needs in life, Cozad is offering it every Monday throughout June. Their Music Monday’s event began on June 3 and will continue through July 1.
Cozad Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Karmen Morse said the Music Mondays event was started last year but the attendance at this first event was, “really good,” said Morse.
The main event was a musical performance by Formerly Three, Cozad residents gathered around the Greens with their lawn chairs to catch the act.
There were also food trucks on hand which included NE Burger, Sprockets, Rowdy Rott BBQ and Tropical Sno. The Cozad Elks Club also provided drinks, said Morse.
Children were not left out of the festivities either, Morse said there was an entrepreneurship class held at the Wilson Public Library where they could learn about how to run business and sell a product. Each came up with different ideas which included selling burritos, homemade ice cream and body cream. Morse said the burritos sold out fast.
Admission to the events is free, but attendants are asked to bring lawn chairs. Food trucks are located east of 222 Hardware and begin serving at 5 p.m. Music starts at 6 p.m. Those who missed out on the first event still have four more chances to attend.
On June 10, the Cozad Ministerial Association will sponsor music by Job Vigil. Food available will be from The Food Truck, Sprockets, Buzzards Roost BBZ, Sunny Snow and 242 House.
The event on June 17 will see the Blue Plate Special perform, sponsored by the Cozad Rotary. Tom Strohmyer and The Wonderful World of Woody will take the stage on June 24. The Cozad Library Foundation will sponsor. The last event is on July 1, Cozad Community Health Systems sponsors the OK Sisters.
