CEDAR TOUR VISITS CHURCHES, CEMETERIES, & HISTORIC SITES
On Thursday, October 18th, the Northeast Nebraska RC&D sponsored a motor coach tour of Cedar County. Thirty people enjoyed visiting the impressive churches in Menominee, St. Helena, and Bow Valley. The group also enjoyed historic presentations at several cemeteries including; Immaculate Conception Cemetery, St. Helena Cemetery, and Wynot Cemetery. Guides, Brad Kellogg and Mary Rose Pinkelman, have both spent years researching the history of the area, and the group enjoyed their stories of the history of the communities, churches, and grave sites that were visited. The group finished their day at Nissen Winery with a wine-tasting accompanied by stories of the outlaws that once roamed the hills of Cedar County.
