VILLAGE OF MEAD STORM WARNING PROCEDURES
The Saunders County Sheriff’s Office will set off the firemen’s pagers if they receive a watch for this area. The fire siren will go up and down a few times. This is only to alert the fire department to be on the watch. It is also a good idea to keep tuned to a local TV channel / radio station if we are in a watch area.
If a funnel is actually spotted, they will blow a steady blast on the siren. This is your signal to take cover immediately. For those residents or businesses without basements, go to the Alma Lutheran Church basement, 219 West Fifth Street. A fireman will have the doors open if we are in a storm warning.

Road to Resurrection Drama…
Join us for the 6th Annual Road to Resurrection Interactive Drama at Encounter Life Ministries (formerly Mead Covenant Church). We will be holding two showings on Wednesday night April 13th at 6:00pm & 7:30pm. The drama will all take place in one setting where you and your family are invited to the Jerusalem marketplace. There you will be seated in the marketplace; much like you would in a restaurant but Jerusalem style. From your seat the drama of the last week of Jesus’ life will be played out in front of your eyes along with some interactive audience participation. Come & See the animals, hear the accounts of what happened that week. Journey through and relive what Jesus went through from His triumphal entry to His victorious resurrection! You and your children will have an unforgettable experience! We look forward to you joining us on the Road to Resurrection! Sign up today for your free tickets at www.r2r2022.eventbrite.com.
