With Deepest_Sympathy

Condolences to Bruce and Arlan Liesemeyer on the loss of their

mother, Lois. She was one of the nicest women you will ever meet.



One again dogs are the subject of conversation: please

remember that once your pet leaves your property,

it needs to be on a leash!

Ron Wenninghoff and family have put together a DVD 

chronicling the first year of the new Unadilla school building.

There are interviews with teachers, students, the 8th grade

graduation, school picnic, and much more. It will be playing in

the Library on Groundhog Day for your enjoyment. If you see

Ron, please thank him for all his work on creating this

wonderful memory!
