GM Greg Gilg
Presentation: Field Club During COVID

Greg was born and raised in private club culture in the western Nebraska town of Paxton, population 500. At age 13 he reluctantly picked up a golf club after tearing up his knee playing junior high football (late 4th quarter when the 3rd team finally got to play). A graduate of Skutt Catholic and Creighton University, Greg was part of a state championship golf team in high school which sold him on having a professional office near the first tee.

Greg is a Class A PGA Professional from the PGA of America and a Certified Club Manager from the Club Management Association of America. Club management has taken him from Council Bluffs to Kansas City to Burlington, Iowa. Greg returned to Omaha in 2017 where he is currently the General Manager at Field Club of Omaha. Greg is married to his much more intelligent and far better-looking wife Samantha who is a physician at Children’s Hospital. When not at the Club, you’ll find Greg with his family (two kids; 3-year-old boy and 1-year-old girl) at Nebraska Football or Creighton Basketball games; the epitome of a true Jaysker.

Presentation: Polio Eradication

Maria Delivoria from Greece is a graduate of Physical Medicine in Paris, France. She worked as a Physics teacher at the Arsakeia Schools, the oldest educational organization in Greece. It was there that she served her profession and held the position of Deputy Director of the 2nd Tositsio - Arsakeio Gymnasium of Ekali. For a number of years, she was the General Secretary of the Union of Greek Physicists and is a member of the Patras Association of Athens and the Alumni Association of the Educational Society (Arsakeia schools).

Maria is married to Makis Vassiliadis, an electrical engineer, retired Navy officer, and they have two children - Nikos, a NTUA naval and mechanical engineer, and Katerina, a pharmacist. She speaks English and French.

In Rotary, Maria Delivoria was a founding member of R.C Psychiko in 1993 and has held numerous Rotary positions, in 2008-09 she was the first female DG of Greece for RID2470. Holding this position, during her serving year, she undertook the organization of a very successful GETS and Zone 20 Institute event. She has been the President of the Membership and Extension Committee, a Trainer and  President for the Public Image Committee for the RID2470  for the past five years. She is currently also the ARPIC for  Zone 21B. She is a Multiple Paul Harris Fellow, Major Donour of the Rotary Foundation, and a Benefactor. She has also served as Assistant Coordinator of Zone 20B RID. She has been honoured with the Meritorious Citation of RI, as well as with the highest award of RI, ‘Service Above Self". Read more about Maria, click here.

The Omaha Morning Rotary is supporting the Mission Church and Christ Community Church for its Transitional House Project. The two churches have organized and funded the renovation of a house as a transitional residence for six people who have served their time and are getting out of jail/prison. Omaha Morning Rotary has volunteered labor from Club Members to help with the demolition and general construction work. Thanks to all Rotarians who spent their Saturday on August 29 in Service Above Self as part of the demolition and general construction team: President Robert Rapp, Lisa Ahrens, James Goedert, Mary Donovan Martello, Max Honaker, and Rodney Brase. Special thanks to Service Chair James Goedert and Rodney Brase for leading this project. Here's a collage of the hard-working Rotarians.

In the event of inclement weather, Morning Rotary follows Omaha Public Schools.  If OPS cancels school or delays the start of school due to inclement weather our Rotary meeting will be canceled that day as well. We have taken this policy for the safety of our members. We appreciate your understanding.
ABIDE received their $15,000 check from the Omaha Morning Rotary Fundriaser.
I just received this video below which was made by Kenya Fair Trade Flowers and the Flamingo Flower Farms, who are our partners with the GNEP Program.  The short clip  is very
meaningful as it shows the GNEP Nurses talking about the program and how it impacted them.  At the end it clearly shows the confidence of the young Nurse to resuscitate a baby and that she feels she is "saving a life every day".  This is of course due to the Helping Babies Breathe certification course offered through the last Rotary Grant in Naivasha.  It also might be something you want to show at your Morning Rotary Meeting to show the impact of this HBB certification program, that is very comprehensive and allows Registered Nurses to feel confident in their skills as they go forward in their career.  
We appreciate all you have done for us to roll this out to so many Nurses in Naivasha and hopefully we can do the same in Nakuru!  See U Tube video
Many Thanks,
Cindy Berkland
