Just over two years ago, a tornado ravaged the northeast Nebraska town of Pilger. It left destruction in its wake. In a marvelous testament to rural grit and ingenuity, the community hosted a “Grand Reopening Celebration” on Saturday, June 18, 2016.
The newly reopened Midwest Bank was central to the day’s activities. At the ribbon cutting, Senator Deb Fischer and a representative of Senator Ben Sasse spoke, in addition to local citizens.
