Last week Roger Utman served as our greeter. Cindy Kinsler gave our invocation.   Secretary Dave Laferla introduce our guests.   John Hoich introduced Governor Pete Ricketts who talked abou the upcoming budget issues for the state. The RISK bag was at $842 and Nick Eastland won a free lunch.
 
 
 
Last week Howard Shrier introduced us to new member Connor Lund.  Connor is an Associate with the Lund Company. He is actively involved with office tenant representation, leasing, and sales.   Connor is an Omaha native and is a University of Kansas graduate.   Connor recently returned to Omaha after spending three years in Chicago with Cushman and Wakefield.
 
Connor has been an active volunteer sitting on the junior board for Griffith tutoring, a non-profit which prepares at-risk students for the ACT.  He is a newlywed, having married Lauren just over six months ago.  In his free time, he enjoys traveling and playing golf.  Welcome, Connor!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Congratulations and thank you to those who were recognized by Rotary Foundation Committee member Ward Peters last week for their generosity to the Rotary Foundation.  The Rotary Foundation is the charity of Rotary.   Through Rotary grants, people around the world are served with educational opportunities, health services, clean water, vaccinations, and nutrition.   You become a Paul Harris Fellow with your cumulative donations of $1000 and then a PH+ Fellow for every $1000 beyond.
 
 
Congratulations to Dan Hosford for becoming a Paul Harris for his donation of $1000.   Congratulations to Wei Rowe for becoming a PH+1 Fellow for her donations of $2000.
 
 
 
 
Congratulations to Magan Smith, Dan Christensen, and Gary Piercy who completed all of their Yearling requirements and received their permanent badges last week.
 
 
Congratulations to Tom Kerfoot- 6 years and John Hoich-38 years who were recognized for perfect attendance last week!
We need lots of Rotarians, friends, and family to sign up for the meal-packaging project on Saturday, February 25th. Please go to the calendar and click on the event to sign up.  We are doing this in conjunction with Southwest and West Rotary and the food will go to Heartland Hope which supplies pantries and shelters around the metro.  This project is suitable for all ages! 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
As you may be aware every April our district coordinates Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) camp.  RYLA camp (April 7-9, 2017) is an intensive 3-day training program for High School Juniors that helps participants think critically about important issues and share ideas with talented peers, learn how to coordinate and lead community service projects, discuss the importance of good governance and civil society to the world, and finally, learn to think globally and explore issues that transcend national and cultural boundaries. 
 
To make the camp a success we seek students from diverse backgrounds throughout the district.  Diversity in this context refers to any student who is interested in local and global issues and whose participation in this program would help expand and add to their current experiences and perspectives. We seek your help to spread the word about this amazing opportunity and to encourage students you believe would benefit from this experience to apply.

If you have a student that would like to apply or questions, please contact Dick Miller or Jennifer
Is your New Year's Resolution to grow your business? If so, here's a great and inexpensive place to start.  Last year we had over 200 Rotarians and guests from all over the metro area attend. Reserve your booth now!  Please note the venue to change to Champions club.
 

 


Thank you to Les Lawless for sponsoring our speaker and student lunches for the month of February!

 

 

 

 

ATTENDANCE at Suburban Rotary needs to be at 50% of the meetings. Make-ups also count. 

 

ONLINE MAKE-UPS Have you checked this out? If you sometimes find it hard to attend a make-up meeting locally or while out of town, check out the option and opportunity of making up a Rotary meeting 24/7 via the internet. You will find this information at http://www.rotaryeclubone.org for more information.  Check your attendance status anytime on our website.
