Free Dinner_Christian_Church_001_500

The Unadilla Area Fund met Tuesday, February 14, to discuss

what went right and what went wrong on Groundhog Day.

Thankfully most everything went right! There was a discussion

on the little kids chasing candy and getting too close to the vehicles

in the parade, so it was decided that only participants who were

walking could throw candy/prizes. Also a correction: the 4-H club

is the Better Beef Producers. Sorry kids! The food contest entries

was low, so next year it will be chili only - spread the word! The next

meeting will be Tuesday, May 2, 10:00 a.m. in the Village Library

and preparations for the annual BBQ will be discussed. The BBQ

will be held on June 24th this year.

Saturday, February 18, the Otoe County Genealogical Society met

in the Resource Room. Vice-President Carol Gobber led the

meeting, there were 6 members present and 2 visitors. Future plans

and meeting ideas were discussed. Our next program will be given

by Chris Effken on his trip to Germany. It will be held at the Syracuse

Library on March 25 at 10:30 a.m. There will be a short business

meeting before. The Resource Room will be open again on 

March 18th, or call me for an appointment.

Sue Baumann, Otoe County Service Officer, gave a short pre-

sentation on veteran benefits. Ted Beilman gave a presentation

on the future renovation of the Veterans Memorial Building in

Nebraska City. He is putting together a laarge display and 

information culminating on Veterans Day, November 11. Beilman

also talked about the large mural, measuring 20' X 100',

honoring Otoe County veterans to be painted by the same

gentleman who has painted the other murals in Nebraska City.

Massie-Richards American Legion Post #100 Commander

Edward Reed reads the names of deceased members as

Auxiliary President Lois Johnson places a miniature flag

on the wreath for each deceased member.

Deceased members of all posts were honored as well as a

rememberance of POW's. After the general meeting, the two

organizations separated for business meetings, coming back

together afterwards for light refreshments provided by 

Auxiliary Unit #100 of Syracuse.

recycle reduce_reuse

Did you know reycling just one aluminum can saves enough

energy to run a computer or television for 3 hours? It takes

95% less energy to make a new aluminum can from a

recycled one.

Tattered American_flag

Memorial Day will be here before you know it. American flags

that are torn or disheveled should not be flown, but turned into

the local Post for proper disposal. Flying a flag in this condition

is considered very disrespectful. (They may be left at the Village

Office or Bob Wilhelm residence.)
