It’s not as messy as it sounds!  The Tri-City Food Fight is the annual competition between the Archway, the Stuhr Museum in Grand Island, and the Hastings Museum to see which organization can collect the most in food donations for area food pantries.  We’ll be collecting donations of non-perishable food items at the Archway during our regular hours through December 31.

All the donations that are collected are distributed to local food pantries to help our friends and neighbors in need.  Thanks for your support of the Tri-City Food Fight!

Camping Adventure 10

Join us for learning fun while school is out!  The Archway, in partnership with the UNL Extension Office and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission presents Archie’s Adventure Camps on days when Kearney Public Schools have scheduled days off.

During the camp, we’ll learn crafts, play games, and explore the many ways to enjoy the outdoors.  We’ll learn about camping, outdoor recreation and wildlife that lives right here in Nebraska.  When it’s cold outside, we’ll bring the outdoors inside. During the December camp, we will be accepting donations for the Tri-City Food Fight.  Please consider making a donation of a non-perishable food item.

Archie’s Adventure Camps are designed for students in grades K-5.  Lunch and snacks are provided.   The cost is $30.  Sign up for multiple camps and receive a special discount.  For information, call the Archway at (308) 237-1000.
