NB Legion “spruces up” 2 trees

Improved vision on Water Street after tree trimming……

In the interest of safety, NB American Legion Post 539 “elevated” two spruce pines at the end of their driveway toward water st.  The issue was blocked vision up and down water st.  as you drove out.  With the help of Treez Unlimited from Monclova Ohio, Frank Brooks and John Harden, this task was accomplished in little time.  Thanks to Pam and John Cheney for lending us a trailer to haul the clippings.

NB Memorial Day 2020

Online broadcast of Memorial Day observance.

May 15, 2020
Dear Village Residents,

After much discussion with our American legion Post Commander, Sam Bretz, the decision has been made to cancel this year’s Memorial Day parade. We do not make this decision lightly but with deep consideration. Our Veteran’s deserve our respect and gratitude and we will provide an alternative chance to participate in a Memorial Day memorial service.

At 9:00 am on May 25, 2020 a ceremony will be broadcast over Facebook. This recording will follow our traditional service at Old Maplewood cemetery and while we won’t be together in person, we will be together in spirit.

I have asked the local churches to ring their bells at 9:00 am in honor of our fallen vets and a 21-gun salute and taps will be included with our presentation.

Flags will be placed at our cemeteries and I am certain families have already planned their decorations for the graves of loved ones and their homes to honor all of our veterans. Our Garden Club will be planting brightly colored flowers and many other activities are in place to make certain our Village looks
it’s very best.

We owe our vets such a debt of gratitude and we can humbly bow our heads and share a Thank You for all their sacrifices.

Most Sincerely,

Mayor Janet Goldner

NBHS 50-Year Club Will Not Meet in 2020

No NBHS 50 Year Club in 2020…

There have been some inquiries about the 50 Year Club, so this is a reminder that was posted earlier.

The 50 Year Club will not be meeting this year on the first Saturday in June, June 6th. With the COVID19 virus, with the stay at home orders still in place, this seems to be the right call. Considering the age of our members, I do not want anyone to take any health risks We have over 700 people on our roster, and that makes it an expensive project to do a mailing, so I’m asking all of you to pass the word.

We will plan to reunite on June 5, 2021.

Kathy Eninger, Secretary

50 Year Club Update from April 2, 2020 – 

After talking with the committee, I need to inform everyone that the 50 Year Club will not be meeting this year on the first Saturday in June 2020, June 6th

With the COVID19 virus, the President and Ohio Governor both mandating stay at home orders for the month of April, and Ohio predicting that it will peak mid May, this seems to be the right call.  Considering the age of our members, I do not want anyone to take any health risks. 

We have over 700 people on our roster, and that makes it an expensive project to do a mailing, so I’m asking all of you to pass the word.  We will plan to reunite on June 5, 2021.
