When you were young your parents told you stories....from their childhoods, from their parents childhoods, and of others in the community in which they lived.  Through these pages our community relives and remembers days and years gone by.  The Minden Courier is wonderful in that it is helping to keep these memories alive for all of us in the area.  We feel that these memories are part of your family history as much as ours and if you find some little bits about your parents or grandparents lives through these pages then we have accomplished what we hope to.  YOU are a bit of our community even if you live far away...your family helped build our community to make it what it is today...Please enjoy these pages, stories and memories with us and hopefully you will learn a bit about what Kearney County is like, past, present and future.
