(l-r) Gordon Mueller, Dale Mohr, and Robert Dornacker
About 35 guests attended and a few contributed memories of their own about the old hardware store. Coffee, punch and cookies and other refreshments were served and everyone had a good time.

The chocolate mint cookies were especially good.
Next month the Society is going to hold an antique appraisal fund raiser on April 3rd at 6:30 at the Library Community Room. If you have an antique you would like to know more about, bring it. We'll have the talented Mr. Jeff Spencer, a locally renown expert on antiques and Omaha history and Gene Mueller who have volunteered to appraise antiques.
Limit of 2 antiques per person. Donations are requested and refreshments will be served. If you have any questions, give Gordon a call: 402-614-7509.
