Last Tuesday afternoon, the Unadilla Area Fund met at the

Duncan Building. Election of officers was held, with the only

change being Maureen Vogt will be the new Vice President.

The All Fund Drive was discussed and Corinne Zahn provided

us with the latest breakdown. The total is a little over $9000; we

are so blessed to be a part of this generous community!

Preparations for Groundhog Day (first Saturday in February),

were discussed, and Sue Saathoff, Secretary, reminded us that

the new time for the parade start is 2:00 p.m. Afterwards, 33

residents and neighbors attended the reception for light refresh-

ments. New members of the community were introduced and told

a little bit about themselves, as were members of the Village

Board. Long time residents also attended. Bob Brandt, UAF

Treasurer, gave an overview of what the Fund has accomplished

to date, spending a total of about $250,000, and what its plans

are for the future. Barb Wilhelm, UAF President, gave a short

presentation about the Unadilla Cemetery and the "famous"

train wrecker buried there, the woman who was born during a 

train ride from Colorado to Hamburg, Iowa, and was named

Unadilla, and the Unadilla website and Facebook page,

where so much local and updated information can be found,

as well as local history. It was a fun evening and everyone

enjoyed themselves; what more could you want?


Thanks again to John & Gera Stilwell for sharing photos of the

1967 Nebraska Centennial. And to Marvin & Jean Lucas, whose

photos are being readied for display. We would love to share yours!

Jean will also be sharing a dress she made for the occasion and

it will be on display in the History Room.

This past Sunday Bev Wilhelm & Chuck Bjork hosted a noon

meal to welcome cousins Mike & Penny McCormick, from

Wisconsin. They were joined by Bob & Barb Wilhelm, Ruth

Wilhelm, Dave & Nola Johnson, Nick, Lynn, Livia, & Halle Wilhelm,

and Marcus, Brianne, Charley & Oliver Wilhelm. The conversa-

tion was great and the food was pretty darn good too!

Don't forget the Village Board meeting tonight in the

Library. The public is always welcome!

Friday, 12-15-1916, The Otoe Union:

County School Superintendent Speedie visited the Unadilla

schools. The Community Band had signed up 22 members and

held their first rehearsal. Leacock Creamery was urging boys to

"get to trapping" and to bring him the furs. He was also buying

beef and horse hides and sheep skins, "paying the highest

cash prices."

Manley, NE [November 22, 2016] - The Lofte Community Theatre near Manley is ready to help get you into the holiday spirit.  Their December production, “Twas the Night Before Christmas” opens on Saturday, December 3 at 7:30pm.  
“Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.”  But, wait!  A mouse is stirring - because Santa missed his house last year.  Before you can say, “Merry Christmas!” we’re off on the wild adventures of a mouse, an elf and a spunky little girl who just won’t take, “No,” for an answer.
This script is a modern-day treatment of the traditional 19th century classic tale. Together a mouse named Amos and his human friend, Emily embark upon a journey to visit Santa Claus.  Directed by Kevin Colbert, this energetic holiday tale will see the characters engage in a sword fight, a squirt gun battle and a perilous airplane ride.  This show is specifically styled to appeal to our younger audience members, but children of all ages will enjoy this holiday romp.
Amos the mouse is played by Lofte newcomer Austin J. Brady of Lincoln.  His human friend Emily is played by Shakeida Bullis of Bellevue.  Rounding out the cast of colorful characters are Greg Leger and Doug Rothgeb of Omaha and Keri Hogue of Elmwood.
In coordination with this production, the Lofte is holding a special fundraiser where children of all ages can meet Santa and the rest of the cast.  You will have the opportunity to eat a catered lunch right on stage, visit with Santa and even get your picture taken with the Jolly Old Elf himself.  This special luncheon is being held at noon prior to our three Sundaymatinees.  Advance reservations are required.  This would be a great multi-generational family event or company outing.  Tickets to the luncheon are just $20.
Production dates for the show are December 3, 4, 8, 9, 10, 11, 16, 17 and 18.  All seats are just $19.  Those interested can call the Lofte box office at 402.234.2553 for reservations.
