Greetings Everyone,       
 
It was a festive and fun Holiday luncheon this week with some great guests.  It was great to see our friends from JP Lord  that came out to greet us and give away Christmas cards which is always a blessing.  The Big guy (Santa) also showed up and gave out some winks and treats, but it did seem like several members must have been on the naughty list as there was some coal being given out as well.  Thanks Santa for making time for us.  Thanks to Camille for lining up the chorus from South High School to come and share some holiday singing with us.  They are very talented and gave us a great show.
 
I got called out today and rightfully so for forgetting to publicly thank Dino's storage for hosting our ride on Ollie the Trolley during our lights tour at the social last week.  Thank you Jena and Dino's very much for your sponsorship it was a great time.  I am not sure what I will do with the snowman poop I received as the penalty for my forgetfulness.  Lol
 
Thanks also to Heather in her ongoing efforts to help us reach our challenge of 100% of our membership donating to Rotary International this year.  Please consider a gift in any amount to help Rotary in doing more good in the world and growing closer to earning your next Paul Harris designation.
 
Don't forget we are not meeting the next 2 weeks.  Be sure to sign up now on the website for the Outland Trophy luncheon and the Outland Trophy dinner it promises to be a great time.
Thanks for all your support this year and helping us to make difference in the world!
 
Have a great Holiday!
Brad
As I am writing this I am sad to announce that I just heard that long time member Roger Holthouse passed away Tuesday.  Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.

12.11.18, Update on Drew:
Tracy reported via email that Drew is making progress in rehabilitation and that they are very grateful.
Tracy asks everyone to continue to pray for Drew and others in need. There is so much unknown about this condition. While doctors say no treatment and no cure, they believe God does miraculous things.
Tracy thanks everyone for caring.

Dear Rotarians,
Last week within a couple of hours following her gymnastics class, Tracy Madden-McMahon's 11 year old daughter, Drew, suddenly lost all use of her arms and legs. She has inflammation of her spine. There is no known cause and tests are still being run for a definitive diagnosis. This week Drew will be transferred from Children’s Hospital to Madonna Hospital for rehabilitation that could take weeks, months or even years. As you can imagine, this must be frightening to their whole family. Tracy would appreciate everyone’s support and prayers for Drew’s recovery.
 
The home address of Tracy, Sean & Drew is
12802 Craig Street, Omaha, NE 68142
 
For those of you wishing to send cards.
Thank you.
