A round robin of 3 girls softball team was held and the evening
wrapped up with the Southeast Nebraska band providing music
and the dedication of the new Walking Path, with
Bob Brandt as Master of Ceremonies.Brandt noted that last year
we dedicated the Unadilla Arboretum and the Walk Path
project was the next natural step to improving the Park.
The Unadilla Area Fund received a matching grant from the
NRD with the Village of Unadilla contributing money also. He
thanked a long list of contributors and encouraged everyone
to take a stroll on the new path, sit on the benches, and take
in the natural beauty.
