Four South Sioux City firefighters recently received awards for their quick thinking and use of the “JAWS of Life” to save the lives of drivers involved in vehicular accidents.
Pender was among four communities in Nebraska to receive Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) for Downtown Revitalization Planning from the Northeast Nebraska Economic Development District. The Village of Pender was awarded $30,000 to be used for restoring and visually improving the downtown area.
Pender Community Center is already in use in various ways that are increasing by the day. An open house was held on Wednesday, Jan. 3, to mark the formal kick off of the project and offer tours and chances to purchase reduced cost memberships.
