Are you going to plant a tree this Friday? Remember it's
Arbor Day and most state offices will be closed.
Get well wishes to Larry Larson.
School is just about out - don't forget to send in your Box Tops
for Education before the year is over. You can leave them at the
Village Office or the Christian Church also.
The Hitzemann family visited Bob & Barb Wilhelm over the
weekend. Before a traditional Easter dinner, there was an
Easter egg hunt. Did anyone else have ants in the plastic
eggs? It was one of the warmest Easters in recent history.
Did you know if the use of cloth diapers increased by just 1%,
the reduction in waste would be about the same as 14,200
households not producing any garbage for an entire year?
The Annual Barbeque will be held on June 28th this year.
Please consider volunteering to help with one or more
of the activities. Your help would be greatly appreciated
and you don't have to live in Unadilla. Thanks in advance
for your consideration.
