VILLAGE BOARD MEETING TONIGHT
7:30 p.m at Village Library
Public is always welcome
Tuesday afternoon, December 4th, the Unadilla Area Fund met
at the Duncan Building for a short business meeting and public
reception. Officers will remain the same as last year. The All
Fund Drive was discussed, we should have donations total soon.
Burton Brandt gave a final report on his Eagle Scout project for
which he planted several memorial trees in the Arboretum. He
will continue to care for the trees until he graduates High School.
New residents and old introduced themselves and told a little
bit about their family. Light refreshments were served. We are
so blessed to be part of this generous community! Next
meeting will be Tuesday, January 15, 2019, at the Community
Library, 10 a.m., to finalize preparations for Groundhog Day!
Get well wishes to Scott Hitzemann.
Friday afternoon, December 7th, Bob Brandt received the
Jim Kluck Honor Award from the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum.
It is amazing what this group has accomplished across the
state! Thank you Bob for all you've done for Unadilla; he's
planted countless numbers of trees, shrubs, and grasses for
anyone who would like to have them, and is the driving force
behind our community garden. Local attendees were: Barb
Brandt, Ron Fechner, Duane Nohavec, Perry Stoner, Mike,
Betsey & Jack Pavelka, Corinne Zahn, and Bob & Barb Wilhelm.
Sunday morning after the service, members of the Unadilla
Christian Church stuffed 180 Christmas stockings with candy,
games, hats and mittens, and beanie babies. This is an annual
tradition which began with Pastor Andy DeGolyer, continued by
Pastor Sandy Denton, and is chaired by Retha Neemann.
Thanks Retha, we know you work year round on this project
and we probably don't say how much we appreciate you often
The first person in line and the oldest member, was Roland
Rodaway. Most of the stockings will go to children in Otoe and
Lancaster county and will be distributed through DHHS.
Thanks to everyone and especially those who carried the
boxes up and out of the basement!

NEWS FROM 100 YEARS AGO
Friday, 12-13-1918, The Otoe Union:
"Elmer Pohlman was discharged from Camp Pike and
returned home to stay." Everyone was anxious for their
"sammies" to come home and for the food supplies to return
to normal. Charles W. Buchanan, owner of the butcher shop,
died and was buried at Park Hill Cemetery. Henry Arnold Stilwell
and William Arnold also died and both were buried in the
Unadilla Cemetery. All three of these men's deaths were
attributed to the flu. (Just another reason to get that flu shot!)
