Friday, January 23, Books & Brew Book Club met at the
Community Library. The chosen title was "A Lantern in Her Hand"
by Bess Streeter Aldrich, and a lively discussion followed. The
general consensus was that modern life for a woman is considerably
less work than for the pioneer women who settled in Otoe County.
Similarities between the main character, Abby Deal, and our
mothers, grandmothers, and aunts were also among the reminisces.
The club will meet again on February 17 and everyone will
read "Oh My Stars" by Lorna Landvik.
The Village Office has had several complaints about
dogs running at large around town. Please remember
that once your pet leaves your property it needs
to be on a leash.
Continued get well wishes to Rose Marie Brandt,
Karen Schwartman, and Bill Davis.
Peggy Leefers, Bob, and I were treated to a special
sight Sunday. We got to see in person the "miniature Unadilla".
It is absolutely amazing! The time, effort, and patience
that has went into this project is unbelievable. Please stop
at the Library on Groundhog Day to view it.
Photos will be on the "Event" tab above later this week.
