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!

Give thanks

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.
