Dick and Sue Kuhlow of Upper Meeker Hollow enjoyed a visit from several family members over the weekend of March 14-16. Granddaughter Jessica Miller and her daughter Amera flew in from North Platte, Neb. Jessica’s twin brother, James Miller and Maris Helwig drove up from Marysville, Penn. Grandson Richie Miller and his wife Rachel and their children Kody and Kaylee arrived from Easton, Penn. Everyone visited with friends at Jeanine Hinkley’s home over a corned beef and cabbage potluck dinner.
Jessica’s hometown of North Platte, Neb. is famous for the fact that more freight trains go through there than any other place in North America. This is where the Union Pacific and the Burlington Northern-Santa Fe railroads meet on their way from the West Coast to Chicago.
