Lawrence is a small town with a giant heart with a large extended family in other parts of Nebraska and other states. They keep returning to our clean farm community to attend the High School Alumni, the Annual Cow Chip Open at the local golf course, and many family reunions and weddings. Family is and has always been important in this Nuckolls County town.
When something happens in this friendly spot on the map – from bloodmobiles to community fundraisers, church events, and even disasters, such as the 1990 tornado, people turn out to help and care for their neighbors. There is no other place in Nebraska that you want to get stranded at but Lawrence.
