A groundbreaking ceremony to commemorate construction of new agriculture facilities at Northeast Community College will be held next week in Norfolk, Neb. The event will be held Thursday, Sept. 10, at 10 a.m., at Northeast’s Chuck M. Pohlman Agriculture Complex, 2301 E. Benjamin Ave. (intersection of Highway 35 & Benjamin Ave). Social distancing will be encouraged and face masks will be required.
Photos and drone footage of the construction site are courtesy of Brian Anderson, mass media-broadcasting instructor at Northeast Community College. Additional background on the project may be found at northeast.edu and at agwaternexus.com.
The ceremony will be held outdoors near the construction site. In case of inclement weather, it will move indoors to the Pohlman Ag Complex. A small, portable sound system will be available. Mics may be placed on the lectern or lavalier mics may be attached to the adjustable mic stand. A news release with speakers’ remarks will be made available immediately after the groundbreaking portion of the ceremony.
