Mares Meeting Room

1722 East 19-Fremont NE


  The program committee felt we should again show Dr Schweitzer's VHS Tape "Finding Your Ancestors Parents."

The inclimate weather in February gave us a very small group and it is worthy to be shown again, so others may gather added information.

Election of Officers

BROWSE NITE March 24th 7 p.m.

The weather kept many at home, anticipating a snow to move in, along with the cold temps.  It didn't happen and we were surprised that we had 7 attend.

 We did cancel election of officers, no quorum, however, the VHS tape of Dr Schweitzer was shown and I believe everyone enjoyed his funny way to introduce ways of finding the ancestors' parents, but also some very good useful tips.  And did you know?  You can check out the tapes and watch them at home, all of Dr Schweitzer's tapes are one hour in length and well worth watching.  These tapes belong to our society, so everyone can make use of them.  Several of the society did attend his presentations at Lincoln several years ago and it was there that we purchased a number of his tapes.



Turner Hall Jammed and 150 Dancers Wore Masks

Lodge Makes Money by Affair

  The Danish Brotherhood held a merry masquerade ball at Turner hall last night, where nearly 350 people gathered for the annual big entertainment given by the organization.

    The Danish Brotherhood has established a reputation for its masquerades and they are looked forward to with pleasurable anticipation by friends and members.  Few similar affairs held in Fremont draw an attendance as large or bring out as many interesting costumes.

    Last night there were 150 masks in the hall.  Representing a dozen different nationalities and popular comic figures of the day, the dancers formed an interesting group. 

    Laughable capers and old-fashioned dances with none but costumed persons on the floor occupied the first hour and a half, when it was thrown open for everyone present.  A good orchestra furnished music.

Honored Post WW II Heroes of Pleasant Valley compiled by Alex Meyer - 2007.  It is well written and really has some good bios of the servicemen.

 Our next project for the library will be some additional tapes of Ship Passenger Listings.  This will be discussed at our March meeting.  They are still available, for purchase, from Heritage Quest in NV and are $55 per film roll.  This is for silver film, and certainly is less than the National Archives price of $70. 


Leap Year Dance

The young ladies of the basketball team gave a social leap year hop last night at Fowler hall, entertaining upwards of fifty couples most pleasantly.  The members of the team received, they being Miss Grace Moss, Bess Christensen, Helen Smails, Jean Boyd, Fannie Morse and Vera Cassie.  The

programs contained eighteen numbers and four extras, all of which were given, with several encores.  The High School orchestra assisted by three or four outside musicians furnished the music.  No attempt was made at decoration. There was an intermission of twenty minutes for refreshment at a caterer's.
