April Fools_Day_2_400

The Otoe County Genealogical Society met Saturday, March 25,

at the Syracuse Library. Following the business meeting, Chris

and Gail Effken, Friend, Nebraska, gave a wonderful account of

their trips to Northwest Germany. Chris also passed along some 

valuable research information and web site addresses. Twenty-

five people attended. Light refreshments were served.



Village Maintenance would like to remind everyone that the

only things accepted at the burn pile are trees, branches, and

unfinished lumber (no nails). No leave or garbage please. That

could make us lose our permit with the state, and there no

longer would be a burn pile.

There was a nice turnout for the Rescue Squad Soup

Luncheon Sunday. They would like to thank

everyone who participated.

Thanks to Dwight Kastens and Jean Lucas for their donations

to the History Room. They are most appreciated.

Continued get well wishes to Ruth Wilhelm, Gerry Davis, and Bruce

Hassler. We are so glad you are back home and doing great

Rose Marie Brandt.

Don't forget the Legion Continuous Membership Dinner is

Friday, 3-30-1917, The Otoe Union: 

"Claire Wall loaded his car for Burlington, Colorado. We wish him

and his family abundant success in their western home." Ernest

Stouffer and family moved to Tennant, Iowa, where he would take

up his trade as a barber. Anna Saunders, Cripple Creek, Colorado,

brought examples of semi-precious gems from the Crystal Peak

Gem Company of that place, and of which she was president.

"It's worth any person's while to see this collection...and hear from

her own lips the story of this remarkable enterprise, it's develop-

ment and possibilities."
