Here's hoping all your family makes it home for
Thanksgiving safely - have a wonderful time!
The day after, of course, signals the start of the Christmas
shopping frenzy. Please remember to patronize local
businesses on Saturday, November 24,
Small Business Saturday.
Thought this would be appropriate for the season:

The Otoe County Genealogical Society met Saturday,
November 17, in the Resource Room. The By-Laws were
revised and approved, plans were made for the new
members books, and a program schedule was discussed.
Louise Vedder was elected the new Treasurer upon Linda
Parde's retirement. Members contributed to the brunch,
which was delightful, and there was lots of discussion
of the new year. The next meeting will be in February,
in the Resource Room.
Wow - hat's off to the Huskers, first for playing in such
miserable weather, and second for winning!
Despite the weather, a great crowd attended the Cream
Chicken dinner Sunday at the Methodist Church. The food
was great and so was catching up with old friends. Lord's
Acre was held afterwards.
