Mothers Day




May 8, 1950, was the flood that practically destroyed old

highway #2 and washed a bus off the road and into the Nemaha,

just east of Unadilla. It was probably the main reason for the change

in the course of the highway, as many people lost their lives, homes,

and source of income.

taken by Allen Hesson. If you'd like to see more, there's a nice 

display on the east wall of the History Room.




Graduate

this Saturday: Seth Bayliss, Tristan Lindsey, Chloe Moore, Cody

Pester, Emily Wellsandt, and Blake Zoller. Chloe Moore is the

recipient of the Larry Stoner Family scholarship in the amount

of $500. Can you believe there's only 2 weeks of school left?




If you haven't done it already, please mark your calendars for the 

Unadilla Alumni Dinner and the SDA Alumni Banquet, both on

Memorial Day weekend. The Unadilla Library will again host

a luncheon on Memorial Day, Monday, May 29th. The History
