Hope to see you at the Fair! Don't forget to stop by the Bingo stand in the Fair Center
and the OCGS booth in the Exhibition Hall!
Get well wishes and healing thoughts to Jason Schomerus, Brody Hitzemann,
and Brett Dettmer. Continued wishes to Nina Jean Rohlfs and Cindy Bassinger.
So thankful the heat wave is over. We had 3.80" of rain and everything is green again.
The magnolia tree at the Western Wilhelm Outpost is blooming for the second time this
year. Bob Brandt says "It's just showing off!"
Thanks to Dan Snider and Val Petersen for their donation of books to the Library and
the Farm Directory for the Resource Room. They are MOST appreciated!
Happy 74th anniversary to former residents Glen & Susie Wyatt, who will celebrate
August 1. They had lived their entire married life in Unadilla, until they moved to Syracuse
a few years back. Congratulations from all of us!
Just a reminder: Corinne is always happy to unlock the door of the Library for you so
you can check out books, audio books, magazines, etc. The Board is considering lending
out special occasion cake pans - isn't that a great idea!
The Unadilla Area Fund is thrilled to announce the speaker for Groundhog Day will be

NEWS FROM 100 YEARS AGO
Friday, 7-26-1919, The Otoe Union:
The W.E. Bassett garage was now an "Authorized Ford Station" and would carry a
"full line of Ford tires and accessories at all times." "The new bank isn't progressing
very fast." (referred to the Farmer's State Bank located south of the old M.K. Meats
building.) Harvey Nash purchased the Elijah Luff home farm for $200 an acre. It was
homesteaded in 1857 by Luff.
