The Unadilla Area Fund met Tuesday, December 9,
at the Community Library. The planning began for Groundhog
Day. Our raffle prize this year will be a grill and some meat
to go on it! (Just a reminder, it is the first Saturday
Barb Wilhelm and Mary Hanke attended the Mary Katherine
Goddard DAR chapter meeting on Wednesday,
December 10. They met at "The Bistro", the small restaurant
on the campus of Metro Community College, in the
culinary arts building. The food was delicious and the
business meeting was short. Then the members went
to the Mormon Winter Quarters and viewed the
Gingerbread display and contest. The entries were
amazing: the Eiffel tower, Robinson Crusoe's tree house,
and lots of snow angels. We counted 35 different items
used just on the roofs. I never would have thought of
cutting up bubble gum strips for shingles and you can't
imagine all the things created out of Chex mix!
Condolences to the Matt Capps family on the loss of
Matt's father, Leonard.
About 5 years ago, everyone was planting Scotch pines.
We had 4 and now the last one has died.

Who could believe that on December 13 of any year
we could be planting trees? That's just what we did last
Saturday at the Western Wilhelm Outpost.
Thanks to Bob Brandt
for the trees: white pine, Black Hills Spruce, and our
favorite "Ponderosa" pine. The grandsons assisted and
decided if your name is Bob you must be pretty smart about
nature, and especially about raccoons (no, we did not
see any Mom.)
Sunday, December 14, was the holiday meal with family
at Good Samaritan. It was good to see the holiday spirit
spread throughout the room. The food was great and a
big thank you to the staff who worked so hard to make it

Kicks off Holiday Season at the Lofte
Manley, NE [November 21, 2014] - The Lofte Community Theatre will usher in the holiday season on Saturday, December 6 with the hilarious family comedy, “Christmas Belles.” Written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten, “Belles” is the story of three squabbling southern sisters trying to pull-off their church's Christmas program.
Poor suffering Frankie is pregnant with twins and weeks past her due date. Hot-flash suffering Honey Rae is trying to keep the Tabernacle of the Lamb's Christmas program from spiraling out of control and middle-sister, Twink, is in jail for inadvertently setting the town on fire. Their hilarious holiday journey through a misadventure-filled Christmas Eve is guaranteed to bring joy to your world! If you saw the Lofte’s first season production, “Dearly Beloved,” you will recognize many of the same colorful characters in this sequel.
Directed by Kevin Colbert, the play features Keri Hogue of Elmwood, Shari Hoelker of Omaha and Wendy Allen of Plattsmouth as the three Futrelle sisters. The production also showcases the talents of Randy Wallace and Doug Rothgeb of Omaha, Ross Mumford and Ken Snyder of Elmwood, Kirsten Wood and Melinda Mead of Plattsmouth, Betty Colbert of Weeping Water and Alyssa DiPaolo of Lincoln.
“Christmas Belles,” runs December 6, 7, 12-14 and 19-21. Friday and Saturday night curtain times are 7:30pm. All Sunday performances are 2pm matinees. Tickets are $19, but there are special reduced rates for groups of 20 or more. Call the box office at (402) 234-2553
to make reservations.
