Step by step the town of Pilger Nebraska is recovering from last month’s deadly tornadoes. Chad Boyer is the superintendent of Wisner – Pilger Schools and says another big event will be held tomorrow (Friday).

Boyer says residents of Pilger and alumni who want a keepsake from the school can pick up an individual brick from the northwest corner of the school lot.

Boyer says in days following the storms they went through the building there wasn’t much left.

Whether another school will be built in Pilger is not yet known. Boyer says right now they are concentrating on this fall and replacing materials.
