As a new year begins, The Minden Courier invites our readers to reflect on the changes, growth, and accomplishments that took place in Kearney County in 2018. This is the first of a three part series looking back at some of the noteworthy events that affected our communities last year.
Bethany Home hosted its first fundraising Gala at Minden Opera House. The event featuring food, entertainment, and an auction was a success with proceeds benefitting Bethany Home and their new Memory Care Unit.
The Minden Whippets boys basketball team performed well in early Southwest Conference play with a 4-0 record following a 41-36 win over McCook. The team ended its SWC tournament in sixth place after playing McCook for the second time on the season in one of two consolation contests. The Bison were able to pull away late to preserve a 66-57 victory over the Whippets.
