Greetings Everyone,       
Great work bringing guests to the meeting this week, especially during our "Free Lunch" promotion.  We want you to participate!  Bring a potential new member to one of the next two meetings and their lunch is FREE and you will be entered into a drawing to win a $50 gift card.  Congrats to Kathy Estes for winning the drawing this week.
 
Doug Bisson from HDR gave us an amazing look at all the plans for the Riverfront redevelopment.  This project is almost fully funded already and has over $210m in donations accumulated.  The plans have a variety of different types of spaces for a more diverse usage of the area and gives the city the ability for many different types of programs to be offered throughout the year.  The site is over 90 acres and promises to be a game changer  for attracting more people to Omaha and especially to downtown to enjoy the fun.  Thank you Cella for another awesome program.
 
We also got our first look at the engagement challenge leader board (see below for the top 10) and we handed out the first round of jewels earned for meeting each of the 6 areas of the challenge.  It was fun  to see the name badges getting a little "bling".  Congrats to the leaders!  Hopefully it is an inspiration for us all to get engaged and work together to make a difference.
