Winter was not quite here yet, but it's deep freeze arrived here

over the weekend! It was -11 at one point. On December 20,

1916, it was -20 actual temperature. It's amazing to me how the

weather this year has mirrored the weather in 1916. Where can

we go for a white Christmas? Where ever that may be, please be

safe in your travels. And Happy Holidays from the

Western Wilhelm Outpost.



A sincere thank you to the family and friends of Irma Taylor

for their generous donations to the Unadilla Cemetery 

in her honor.



Thanks to these All Fund Drive contributors: Chris & Jan Moore,

Bob & Barb Brandt, John Moss, Ron Fechner, Countryside Bank,

Rick & Annette Block, Unadilla Fun Run, Tyler & Donna Crown-

over, and Gerry & Cherie Davis. You will see the results for 

years to come.

The Unadilla Community Library applied and received a $1000

grant from the LIBRA Foundation in Oregon. It is a nationwide

non-profit organization that donates new, quality, hardcover

children's books to small, rural public libraries through its

BOOKS FOR CHILDREN program. We were fortunate to receive

this grant as this is the last year for the foundation.Books were 

purchased through the Junior Library Guild. And purchase we

did! We were able to get 76 books tailored for kids of all ages.

Sue Saathoff reached out to patrons of the library for assistance

in the selection: Janet Oelke, Jen Foley, Leigh Luff, and Jillian

and Julia Bennett. They picked out a wonderfun variety

ensuring there is something for everyone and Sue would like

to thank them for their assistance. The books have been

received, labeled and added to the system. A "Kid's Library

Open House" is planned for Sunday, January 22 from 2 - 4 p.m.

in the Library which is located at the Community Center. Not

only will all the new books be on display and available for

check out, there will be crafts and refreshments - and a very

special guest will be there. It should be a fun day for all!

Friday, 12-22-1916, The Otoe Union:

"1916 is about to pass away and of course the 1916 calendar

goes with it. We have a neat calendar for next year, A.D. 1917,

one of which is yours for the asking. Bank of Unadilla."

(thanks Bob Brandt for continuing this tradition.) "According

to the department's rulings the Unadilla post office must close

at 7 p.m. after Jan. 1st." Earl Halvorsen and Minnie E. Beccard,

both Unadilla, were married at Nebraska City.
