Program: Migration Routes & Settlement
This is our last
meeting until September
The month of May
has found our library quite busy, and they were from Wisconsin, New
York, and Norfolk NE. We were so happy to be able to give them
informative information from our old newspaper files and books on the
shelf for Dodge County.
We had a very
interesting and informative program for May. Joe Dickmeyer displayed
his many bottles from Dodge County, one going back to the 1860’s. Many
were medicinal bottles. There were blown bottles and some were molded.
The molded ones having a seam on the neck so it was easy to know the
difference. The members enjoyed the crockery jugs as well.
During the summer
months, if you have need of the library, please call and make an
appointment with Claire 1-402-721-9553. She will be in and out most of
the time, helping her sister in work on her 1891 brick home at Hebron,
Nebraska. The restoration is time consuming but will be great when
finished. Sorry, but Snuggles refuses to answer the phone!
