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!

Commencement at Hooper.

Hooper, June 1 - The past week has been a busy time for the graduates and their friends, with the work that comes with the closing of the school year.

It was the intention to hold the class day exercises in the city park on Wednesday afternoon, but on account of the dampness, they were given at the opera house. 

Orations were delivered by the graduates, and several musical selections formed a part of the afternoon's program.  The Hooper cornet band was present and rendered several selections.

In former years the girls usually outnumbered the boys, but this year, the class was composed of one lady and six gentlemen, the members being Miss Anna Harms and Messrs Alfred Dern, Jonah Rupert, Lyman Sanders, Roy Canaga, Howard Wagner and Charles Sauers.

North Bend - The regular annual commencement of the North Bend high school was held at the opera house last Friday evening.  The program was well rendered and an oration given by each graduate though the class was large.  There were the following sixteen graduates:  Clarence Walrath, Bertha Allen, John Purcell, Loren Edson, Andrew Harvey, Mary Seelig, Elizabeth Ladenburger, Mabel Acom, Margaret Kimbrough, Lizzie Powers, Herbert Armstead, Asa Farnham, Flora Conley, Helen Verhs, Fred Swan and Theola Linn.  There was a severe hail and rain storm on that evening but nevertheless the house was crowded to its utmost capacity.  Music was furnished by the North Bend orchestra and in addition vocal music rendered by Professor McProud, Miss Flora Conley and Miss Virginia Francis.  After the presentation of diplomas a short speech was made by the president of board of education, C Cusack, and the program closed with the benediction given by Rev Warren.
