We will be creating a display in the History Room at the

Community Center. We need photos and mementos from

Unadilla Area veterans. Besides the veteran's name, we

need branch of service and any other information you care

to share. Please contact me at home or leave at the Village

Office along with a phone number where you can 

be reached.

Village Maintenance would like to remind everyone that the only

things accepted at the burn pile are trees, branches, and

unfinished lumber. No leaves or garbage please. This could

make us lose our permit with the state, and there no longer

would be a burn pile.

Friday, 4-2-1915, The Otoe Union:

"J.M. Morgan attended the conference of assessors at

Nebraska City Monday and will call in a few days to see how 

poor you are." The barn of E.L. Busch, 3 miles east of Unadilla,

burned to the ground. All the livestock was saved except one

calf. There were some very interesting bills introduced in

the Nebraska Legislature: among them one compelling

the National Guard to do 90 days work each year on the roads

and bridges of the state, and one prohibiting free lunches.

School Reunion_500

Spring Banquet


The final show of the winter season at Kountze Memorial Theatre in Mahoney State Park is "Farce of Nature" by Jones, Hope, and Wooten.

It is a Southern-fried farce depicting one day at the struggling Reel'em Inn fishing lodge where a lone guest is being housed as part of the government's witness protection program. The mobster he's hiding from and his sexy wife, who is quite taken with the lodge owner's son show up. The witness tries to disguise himself and hilarity ensues. An absent-minding gun toting maid, wild animal noises, and run for your life humor keep the show moving. Romance among the couples, some of which is created by hypnotic suggestion, floods the stage and is sure to win you over - hook, line, and sinker.

Show dates: March 13,14,15,20,21,22,27,28,29, April 4,10,11,12

Show times: Fri. & Sat. 7:30 p.m. Sun. 2:00 p.m.

Tickets: $8.00 - $10.00

Reservations: 402-944-2523

three fiddlers 

Greenblatt & Seay's Schoolhouse Performance Series features championship fiddler/composer, Deborah Greenblatt, in "Fiddle Fables", on Sunday, April 12, at 2:30 PM, in the Old Avoca, Nebraska Schoolhouse.

With the help of her fabulous five-string fiddle Deborah Greenblatt explores some of the trials, tribulations, and lessons that fiddlers often have in common. There is advice for the beginner (“It Starts With Your Feet”), advice for the fiddler’s families (“Have Mercy”), for the growing fiddler (“Shopping For a Fiddle Blues”), for the brave fiddler (“I’m Gonna Fiddle In a Contest”), as well as the fiddler who plays the viola (“Out of Fiddle, Out of My Mind”). There are also inspiring stories of real-life fiddlers (“Cactus Pete”), teachers (“Alice Johnson’s Jig”), and students (“Mary Ann the Fiddler”).

The concert will be downstairs, followed by light refreshments, and a chance to chat and jam with Greenblatt & Seay.  Avoca is in southern Cass County, Nebraska, on the 13 C Spur,  one mile south of Highway 34.

Admission is $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for students and senior citizens, and $1.00 for children. Seating is limited.For more information, write to  Greenblatt & Seay, The Old Schoolhouse, P.O. Box 671, Avoca, Nebraska, 68307, or call 402-275-3221, or e-mail them at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

The historic Old Avoca Schoolhouse was built in 1925, and has been the home of the Schoolhouse Performance Series since 1990.  Music lessons, workshops, fiddle camps, and field trips are offered by Schoolhouse residents, Greenblatt & Seay, and are available by appointment.
