ship. Can you believe there's only 2 weeks of school left?
Continued get well wishes to Nancy Crownover, Rich Lechner,

If you haven't done it already, please mark your calendars for
the Unadilla Alumni Dinner and the SDA Alumni Banquet, both
on Memorial Day Weekend. The Unadilla Library will again host
a luncheon on Monday, May 28th. The History and Veterans
rooms will also be open that day. You never know who you
might run into!
It's been a long time coming, but Saturday morning we made the
trip to Peru to see our daughter Michele graduate, with a degree
in Criminal Justice Administration, Cum Laude. Congratulations
girl! We are so proud of you!
This week is the 68th anniversary of the 1950 flood that
practically destroyed the old Highway #2 and washed a bus off
the road and into the Nemaha, just east of Unadilla. It was probably
the main reason for the change in the course of the highway, as so
many people were affected. There is a large photo display
in our History room.
Plans are under way for the Unadilla BBQ. The village will again
have golf carts to ferry folks back and forth. They will also be
delivering meals to those who can not attend due to age or illness.
If you want to be on the list, call Corinne at 828-5355. Keep your
fingers crossed for good weather. Follow the updates on our
Facebook Page: Unadilla Bill - Groundhog Celebration.
Next Tuesday is the Primary Election. Residents will vote in the
Duncan Building as always. Remember, if you don't vote,
you lose the right to complain!
The April minutes from the Village Board meeting
are now available - just click on the Village Office tab
