Belated Birthday wishes to
Bill Davis who celebrated 11-13.
Thank you to the Otoe County Museum of Memories for loaning us
the uniforms of Larry Stoner and Verda Fentiman to display in our
Veterans Room for the coffee held last Friday, 11-11. Thanks to
Peggy Leefers, Corinne Zahn, and Bob Wilhelm for all the help, and
to Peggy Leefers and Glenda Willnerd for the cookies and donuts.
Leefers also has donated a beautiful set of postcards from Camp
Ashland from the early 1920's.

Looking at postcards: Dean & Donna Speth, Jean & Marvin Lucas
Jeannie Steinkuhler and Jim & Marilyn Schreiner have donated
paper memorabilia, which is being prepared for viewing. We are
still looking for service photos to display on our "Wall of Heroes".
The crowd was small but we had a great time, and as always, I
learned things I didn't know.

Mary Ann Wenninghoff brought in her finished mat that she
crocheted for a homeless Veteran and it will be sent to Omaha.
Also a big thank you to Steve & Judy Vampola for their generous
donation. It is most appreciated. Hope to see you all next year!

Dog owners reminder: 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 at the Community Center
or at the Park, it is YOUR responsibility to clean up the poop.
Please consider others who also use these facilities.
Hasn't our weather just been incredible? It is so heartwarming to
drive past our park, and see so many people using it. Yesterday
there were folks walking on the path and lots of kids playing on
the equipment. So proud to be a member of this community!
Thanks to these All-Fund Drive contributors: Peggy Leefers,
Philip & Glenda Willnerd, Ernest Schmucker, Lois Watermeier,
Vaughn & Dana Pester, Kastens Electric, Steve & Betty Vodicka,
In Memory of Marcia Abbott, Sheila & Charles Downey, Dean &
Donna Speth, Robert & Cheryl Doeden, James & Diana Walters,
Leona Lewis, Larry Larson & Gerri Eisenhauer. Just a few of
the reasons for our great community!
