Otoe County Rural Schools Reunion

When: Saturday, April 10 2010
Event Type:  
Where: Harmony School
6265 'Q' Road
Nebraska City, NE 68410
Description: On April 10th, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, the Otoe County Genealogical Society will host its 1st Annual Otoe County Rural Schools Reunion at Harmony School at 6265 'Q' Road, which is located 8 miles south of Nebraska City on Highway 75, and ½ mile west on ‘Q’ road. Harmony School is a rural schoolhouse that was built in 1879, and was closed in 1997.  This reunion will include a coffee social and tour of the 130-year old rural schoolhouse. In addition, it will also give visitors a chance to assist our society in identifying numerous unidentified rural schoolhouse photographs from several different school districts throughout the county. The society has come into possession of these prized photographs through their Otoe County Courthouse Clean-up Project, in which these photographs were donated to the society by the Otoe County Clerk’s office, and through other generous donations as well.  So please come join us at Harmony School and help us pay tribute to the outstanding contributions that these rural schoolhouses made in the education of our state’s youth for the past 100 years now!

Remember your Recorder? 

Check out the Avoca Schoolhouse!

 

The Old Avoca (Nebraska) Schoolhouse will celebrate the seventeenth annual Play-the-Recorder Month in March by offering a Beginning Recorder Workshop on Saturday, March 13, from 1 PM - 3 PM.   Deborah Greenblatt, Master Artist with the Nebraska Arts Council, and member of the American Recorder Society, will lead the workshop.  Pre-registration is required, and enrollment is limited.  The $30.00 fee includes an instruction book, and a soprano recorder.  Pre-registration is required, and enrollment is limited.  For more information, call 402-275-3221, or send an e-mail to [email protected][email protected] .

Founded in 1939, the American Recorder Society is celebrating 70 years of service to its members and constituents--all recorder players including amateurs to leading professionals, students to teachers.  It has some 130 chapters and consorts in the U.S. and Canada, where its membership base is over 2200, plus 130 members in 28 other countries.

Play-the-Recorder Month grew out of an event staged as part of an "ARS 50" anniversary celebration, during which members all over the world played a recorder piece simultaneously on April 1, 1989.  Play-the-Recorder Day was first officially held in 1992, and then expanded to Play-the-Recorder Month the following year.

The ARS office in St. Louis, Mo, may be contacted at 314966-4082, or [email protected][email protected] , or through the ARS web site, www. AmericanRecorder.org.

  Dear Louisvillians,

   Well, March has officially arrived and with it, a bit of sunshine and warmer temperatures!  March has been quite a celebration thus far in the mere two days we've experienced thus far in Louisville.  If you have no clue to what I'm referring to...here's a recap:

 

We should be extremely proud to call NEBRASKA and LOUISVILLE our home.  Thanks for making me proud to call this my home yet again, Louisville.  Have a wonderful week!  

  

Your Louisville Editor,

Paula
