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.

Gang of_Dogs

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.

copy for you to view at the Unadilla Library soon.
