By The Telegram
While this weekend may be dominated by plans for watching Sunday's Super Bowl between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens, there are a few other things going on of interest.
On Friday, the Finney County Senior Citizens Association will have its covered dish dinner at the Senior Center of Finney County, 907 N. 10th St. Entertainment will be provided by the Garden City High School Modern Show Choir at 6 p.m., with dinner to follow. Bring a covered dish and enjoy an evening of good music and fellowship.
For more information, call Barbara Jensen, executive director, at 272-3620.
On Saturday, Zumba with Cristy, 609 N. Eighth St., will hold a master class from 9 to 11 a.m. The class is $10, and all proceeds will go toward medical expenses for Norma Rodriguez and PJ. Rodriguez has a brain tumor and PJ is paralyzed from the waist down.
On Sunday, a new exhibit, "Rare: Portraits Of America's Endangered Species," will open at Stauth Memorial Museum, 111 N. Aztec in Montezuma.
National Geographic contributing photographer and Nebraska native Joel Sartore has spent two decades on a mission to document North American species facing extinction. Sixty-nine of these animals and plants are profiled in the exhibition. Organized by number of living populations for each species, the exhibition also examines the history, purpose and effectiveness of the Endangered Species Act of 1973.
The exhibit will be on display through April 14.
To schedule groups of five or more, call in advance at (620) 846-2527 for information or to set up a tour. Museum hours are 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free, but donations are accepted.
