Autumn Wardyn would like to thank everyone who came to the
Cindy Bassinger Kicking Cancer fundraiser. There was a
great crowd and the organizers did a wonderful job. Saw lots

how our town pulls together?

NEWS FROM 100 YEARS AGO
Friday, 8-25-1916, The Otoe Union:
Mahlon Kline, who operated the meat market in Unadilla,
sold his business and property to a Mrs. Lunsford in
exchange for her general store and 20 acres at St. Deroin
(Indian Cave State Park). Her sons, Lee and John, would
move to Unadilla with her. The editor commented,
"We are frank to admit that dead men tell no tales but a
lot of tales are told about them after they are dead."

Greenblatt & Seay proudly announce the 20th ANNUAL SCHOOLHOUSE FIDDLING BEE. This historical, hysterical event will take place on Sunday, October 9, at 2:30 PM, downstairs in the Old Avoca, Nebraska Schoolhouse. In the Open Division, fiddlers will play a hoedown, a waltz, and a tune of choice. There will also be other divisions of competition available for the adventurous fiddlers, including a Singing Fiddler's Contest, a Twin Fiddler's Contest, a Fee-Fi-Faux Fiddler's Contest (fiddle tunes played on any instrument other than a fiddle), and a Hocus-Pocus Contest (cross-tuning, sound effects, dancing, etc.), which will give fiddlers an opportunity to play tunes that are usually not allowed in any other contest.
For more information, and to register on line, log on to: http://www.greenblattandseay.com/schoolhouse_fiddling_bee
Admission is $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for students, and $1.00 for children. Fiddlers and their back-ups are admitted for free. The contest will be followed by a light snack and an acoustic jam session with Greenblatt & Seay.
