The meeting this evening included District Governor Jim Griesen, of Lincoln, and his wife, Margaret.  Mr. Griesen, a professor at UNL, spoke on the positive effect Rotary has had on his life and how Rotary International has impacted the effort to eradicate polio.

Other guests included Dan Rose, incoming Assistant District Governor from the Wayne Rotary Club, and Nicki Klein of the Lincoln South Rotary Club.  Nicki spoke about the Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) which is held several times a year in eastern Nebraska.  She presented Stan Christensen and Sherri Prim with certificates of completion in RLI.  They recently completed the 21 hour course that provides classes in leadership and the different facets of Rotary.

Mr. Greisen inducted two new members into the Norfolk Rotary Club:  Bo Bierman and Michael Avok.  He also inducted Michele Gill as a transfer member from McCook.  Mr. Greisen also “re-inducted” Andy Labenz and Marty Wolff.

The next meeting of the Norfolk Rotary Club will be held on April 15 at noon.  The guest speaker will be Bart McLeay, candidate for U.S. Senate.
