Hello Autumn_400

Thanks to Jeanie Steinkuhler and family for their wonderful

donation of articles to our History & Resource Room.

Syracuse High School Class of 1967: can you believe that 50

years ago we were freshmen at the "old" high school? Our oldest

grandchild is a freshman this year, starting in the "new" building.

What a floodgate of memories has been unleashed!

On 9-16-2016, Bob Brandt, Duane Hopp, and Brody Brandt

planted a tulip tree on the school grounds in honor of the

Class of 1967.

Tulip trees are hardy to the area and could reach over 80 

feet in height. We have also started a new Facebook page

and would like your help in locating classmates. You may 

also submit photos to be published. Contact Bob Brandt

or myself.

Friday, 9-29-1916, The Otoe Union:

"Harvey Carper was in town buying horses and mules."

Fern Sossman, Oskaloosa, Iowa, and Jessie Turner, formerly

of Unadilla, were married in Omaha and would make their

home in Lincoln. A lengthy article on prohibition closes with,

"The attention of the reader is called to the fact that taxes have

increased enomously in Kansas, a prohibition state." (So

were they encouraging folks to drink so our taxes would

stay lower???)

three fiddlers

Greenblatt & Seay proudly announce the 20th  ANNUAL SCHOOLHOUSE FIDDLING BEE.  This historical, hysterical event will take place on Sunday, October 9, at 2:30 PM, downstairs in the Old Avoca, Nebraska Schoolhouse.  In the Open Division, fiddlers will play a hoedown, a waltz, and a tune of choice.  There will also be other divisions of competition available for the adventurous fiddlers, including a Singing Fiddler's Contest, a Twin Fiddler's Contest, a Fee-Fi-Faux Fiddler's Contest (fiddle tunes played on any instrument other than a fiddle), and a Hocus-Pocus Contest (cross-tuning, sound effects, dancing, etc.), which will give fiddlers an opportunity to play tunes that are usually not allowed in any other contest.

For more information, and to register on line, log on to: http://www.greenblattandseay.com/schoolhouse_fiddling_bee

Admission is $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for students, and $1.00 for children.  Fiddlers and their back-ups are admitted for free.  The contest will be followed by a light snack and an acoustic jam session with Greenblatt & Seay.

For more information, call 402-275-3221, log on to http://www.greenblattandseay.com


Opening Sundays, 1 - 4 p.m.

Many new displays & improvements
