Omaha Children’s Museum
What a great community treasure we have in the Omaha Children’s Museum. With a focus on early childhood learning, they have established themselves as a strong presence in Omaha. Thanks to Lindy Hoyer, Executive Director, for her presentation, and we are happy to welcome her back as a member of Downtown Rotary.

St. Patrick’s Day
St. Patrick’s Day got an early start this year with a visit from Lord Mayor Timmy Conway of Omaha’s sister city, Naas, Ireland. Timmy is a Rotarian himself, and gave us  the gift of some poetry by Yeats: What better way to get into the Irish spirit. See more of Timmy on Saturday, March 17 from 11:30 to 1:30 at the Field Club for a celebration of Irish American Public Officials. Thanks to Jim Cavanaugh for bringing Timmy to our meeting, and for inviting Club members to be his guests on Saturday.
Good News:
Congrats to everyone who had good news this week. My apologies for not having more detail. I was so enthralled by Timmy Conway and his poetry, that I failed to make good notes about good news!
Be sure to join us tonight (Thursday, March 15) for an early St. Patrick’s Happy Hour at Clancy’s, 7120 Pacific, sponsored by EHPV Management Group.
Thanks to Deb Skinner, Phil Taylor and the entire Public Relations Committee for their hard working in preparing our new Club Directory which is now available.
Next week:
Next week, we have as our speaker Chancellor Jeffrey Gold of UNMC and UNO. Definitely a great week to bring a guest or potential member.
Remember, if it’s Wednesday, the place to be is Downtown Rotary.
See you next week!
