Wilbur Gallup, (Huntington Avenue) known to his friends as “Punch” or “Jug” died on November 24th, 2016. Thanksgiving morning. He was 94 years old and suffering from ill health in recent years.
He was one of the last of the WWII army veterans and one of the original Darby Rangers. Punch earned several medals for his service, including the purple heart when he was wounded during the Normandy Invasion.
We are honored to have been able to call him our friend and neighbor.

FPNA will once more take to the streets for “trash day” when we participate in the Celebrate CB Clean Sweep on Tuesday, May 17th. Volunteers are asked to meet at the pump house at 5:30 at the top of Glen Ave. to get trash bags and our assignments, all within our own neighborhood. Please bring your own gloves. We will then spread out through every street and alley to find all those unsightly bits of debris. When we’ve finished our rounds, we can place our bags in the vacant lot next to 171 Glen (by one of our poles) for later pickup. Afterwards, we are all invited to Bayliss Park for free hot dogs cooked by our Mayor and members of our City Council, which is due to begin around 7:00 p.m.—a fitting reward for our labors.
Last call for participants of the 2016 Garage Sale. We currently have 7 locations (Park , Glen and Huntington) and we’d like to get that to 10. We’ll be advertising in various media outlets, Omaha World Herald, The Daily Nonpariel, Online, NextDoor, Facebook and our FPNA website.
If you are interested please contact me. Thanks.
