Unadilla Library to host Book Signing
Do you love Nebraska Volleyball? Who doesn’t!! Do you know its history? If not, here’s your chance to learn.
On Saturday, November 18th, from 10:00 to Noon, the Unadilla Library will be hosting the author John Mabry for a book signing at the Unadilla Community Center. John has written “Nebraska Volleyball – The Origin Story” – a wonderful book telling the history of the Nebraska Volleyball program since the passing of the landmark Title IX in 1972. John Mabry was the sports editor for the Lincoln Journal Star from 1992 to 2007. During that time he helped cover the Husker volleyball team at five NCAA Final Fours. He has written more than five hundred feature articles for the Journal Star. The book contains a forward by Jordan Larson who led the Husker volleyball team to the NCAA National Championship in 2008 and led the U.S. Women’s team to an Olympic gold medal in 2021.
Remember to fly your flag of any size on November 11, and thank a Veteran!
Thanks to the Hincker family again for sharing their photos:
All Saints Day
Sunday afternoon turned out to be beautiful, if a little windy. Keith & Sandi Kimbell, Bob, and I did a little drive-about and visited 2 places that are hidden treasures. The first is a long iron bridge, built in 1950, on the road directly across from the Burr Spur.
The second is Livingston Cemetery, east of Cook, and a little off the beaten path. The folks buried there were early settlers, and as we determined, came from Scotland. We later learned these are some of Steve Kroese's ancestors. The cemetery is surrounded by a black wrought iron fence and the entire surface is cement; no need for lawnmowers there! We then stopped in at Lorton for a late lunch - as always, great food and lots of it!
Keith, Sandi, Barb
We were so saddened to learn of the passing of Brian Duncan, in North Dakota where he had made his home. The son of Rose and Norman, Brian grew up in Unadilla, and graduated in the SHS Class of 1993.
Condolences also to Leonard Lemka, grandfather, and Craig & Julie Lemka, parents, on the loss of their daughter, Sophie Truax. So young and so much life ahead of her.
According to the Village Dog Ordinance, when your dog leaves your property it should be on a leash. If you walk it or let it run in the playground area of the Community Center, or at the Park, it is YOUR responsibility to clean up the poop. Please consider others who use these facilities.
