Manley owes its existence to the Missouri Pacific Railroad, which built its main line from Atchison, KS, to Omaha in 1881-82. This line traversed Cass County south-to-north coming through Avoca, Weeping Water, Manley, and on to Louisville.

…is upon us! Over the past couple of years, the Village has discussed making the Community Center a Tornado Shelter for residents who do not have a basement to go to or who have a need for a Shelter. With this wonderful building the Village has, the Board would like to provide this safety opportunity for the community, if there is a need.
Any time the Village is in a Tornado Watch or the siren goes off for a Tornado Warning, a Board member will open the Community Center. The basement will serve as a safety area. For emergency information have these phone numbers handy: Tim Glas – 402-515-7105, Denise Swenson 402-677-2587, Mickey Dalton 402-660-7032.
This will be a new venture for the Village & the Board, so if you have any helpful suggestions on how best to proceed, the Board would welcome your input. You may contact Denise Swenson (402-677-2587) or the Village Office (402-234-2304).
Red Cross: Urgent need for blood donations as hospital demand increases
MAY 27,2020 — The American Red Cross has an urgent need for blood donations to prevent another blood shortage as hospitals resume surgical procedures and patient treatments that were temporarily paused earlier this spring in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Healthy individuals who are feeling well are asked to make an appointment to donate in the weeks and months ahead by downloading the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or enabling the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo device.
In recent weeks, hospital demand for blood products has grown by 30% after sharply declining in early April amid this rapidly changing and complex public health crisis. At the same time, blood drives continue to be canceled as many businesses and community organizations remain closed. Donors are needed to make and keep scheduled appointments to help meet the current need.
All those who come to give through May 31 will receive a special Red Cross T-shirt by mail, while supplies last. And thanks to Amazon, all those who come to give June 1-30 will receive a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card via email.*
“Blood donors have played a vital role in the lives of patients who have needed lifesaving transfusions during this pandemic, and patients continue to depend on donors each and every day,” said Paul Sullivan, senior vice president, Red Cross Blood Services. “The Red Cross appreciates the support of those who rolled up a sleeve to give in recent months, but the need doesn’t stop. We need the public’s help to avoid another blood shortage this summer.”
It’s important to remember that red blood cells must be transfused within 42 days of donation and platelets within just five days. So, they must constantly be replenished. There is no known end date in this fight against coronavirus, and the Red Cross urgently needs the help of donors and blood drive hosts to ensure blood products are readily available for patients.
Blood drive safety precautions
Each Red Cross blood drive and donation center follows the highest standards of safety and infection control, and additional precautions – including temperature checks, social distancing and face coverings for donors and staff – have been implemented to ensure the health of all those in attendance. Donors are asked to schedule an appointment prior to arriving at the drive and are required to wear a face covering or mask while at the drive, in alignment with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention public guidance.
Upcoming blood donation opportunities:
6/15/2020: 1 p.m. - 7 p.m., Town Hall, 623 House St
6/15/2020: 1 p.m. - 6 p.m., Fire Hall, 601 N 4th
6/10/2020: 9 a.m. - 3 p.m., Louisville Senior Center, Louisville Senior Center, 423 Elm St
