The rooms were toured and then a light lunch was served in the

Resource Room, also providedby the DAR. Then the group, joined by

members of the community, went to the Unadilla Library, where

Peggy Leefers gave a wonderful program on quilts. She started

with one from her collection dating from about 1890 and continued

up through the years which included a baby quilt for a great-

grandbaby she had just finished Saturday morning!

Condolences to the many family and friends of Laurence

Royal who passed away on March 8. A lifelong area resident,

farmer and cattleman, he was a joy to visit with. He will be missed

by so many.


We would like to thank Jim Russell for his contribution of the

telegraph key from the railroad depot that was torn down in the

early 1950's and is now on display in the History Room. He also

provided us with many photos never see before as well as a copy

of a school history written by a former teacher. Opening his box

of goodies was like an early birthday present! Thank you also to

Barb Kastens and Jean Lucas for local newspaper articles, and

to Jenice Bates for the POW/MIA empty chair place setting for

the Veterans Room. So thankful to live in this community full of

such generous and thoughtful people!

So glad to report Rose Marie Brandt, Lois Chadwick, Karen

Schwartman, and Sharon Demaree are all on the mend and doing

well. Continued get well wishes to Bruce Hassler and Gerry Davis.

Please share your news with us as we have lots of former residents

who like to know what's going on in the old hometown!
