old flag

Tuesday, October 11, Massie-Richards American Legion

Post #100 and their Auxiliary held a Flag Disposal Ceremony

at the Post Home in Syracuse. Commander Ed Reed stated,

"Let these faded Flags of our Country be retired and destroyed

with respectful and honorable rites and their places be taken

by bright new Flags of the same size and kind, and let no

grave of our soldier or sailor dead be unhonored and 

unmarked." Many local civic organizations also attended.

Friday, 10-27-1916, The Otoe Union:

Francis R. Dively, early settler of the Shullsdale

community, died and was buried at Hopewell. Charles

Hiland, husband of Lillian Carper, died at Seattle, Wash.,

and would be buried in Nebraska City. There was not much

local news in this issue due to political and prohibition

advertisements. (The more things change the more they

stay the same?)

three fiddlers

Greenblatt & Seay's Schoolhouse Performance Series features a concert of Scandinavian music on Sunday, November 13, at 2:30 PM, in the Old Avoca, Nebraska Schoolhouse.  Greenblatt & Seay and Friends will be playing a variety of instruments, including fiddle, guitar, hammered dulcimer, recorders, pennywhistles, and the nyckelharpa.  The nyckelharpa is the official keyed fiddle of Sweden, and has 16 strings.

Greenblatt & Seay have been playing and singing together since the night they met, decades ago.  Their performance on November 13 will include the championship fiddling styles of Deborah Greenblatt, and the fancy whistle-playing of David Seay.

The concert will be downstairs in the 1925 brick schoolhouse, and  followed by light refreshments, and a chance to chat and even jam with the performers.  Avoca is in southern Cass County, Nebraska, on the 13 C Spur,  one mile south of Highway 34.

Admission is $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for students and senior citizens, and $1.00 for children. Seating is limited.For more information, write to Greenblatt & Seay, The Old Schoolhouse, P.O. Box 671, Avoca, Nebraska, 68307, or call 402-275-3221, or e-mail them at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

The historic Old Avoca Schoolhouse has been the home of the Schoolhouse Performance Series since 1990.  Music lessons, workshops, fiddle camps, and field trips are offered by Schoolhouse residents, Greenblatt & Seay, and are available by appointment.
