INTERNATIONAL GUEST ROBERT WESENER FROM AUSTRALIA

Robert has been a Rotarian for over 25 years and is currently President-Elect of the Rotary Club of Cleveland in D9630 in Queensland Australia. 
 
Robert has attended 4 International Rotary Conventions, Brisbane Australia (2003), Chicago USA (2005), Sydney Australia (2014) and Toronto Canada (2016) and had planned to attend in Honolulu in 2020. Robert was Team Leader for the Group Study Exchange team from D9630 to D5650 in 2001 and this started his long association and special connection with Rotarians in Nebraska and Iowa, in particular his fellow GSE Team Leader from D5650 Dan Rose and his wife Kyle.

Robert is an architect and until mid-2019 was an owner and Managing Director of his practice employing 50-60 staff. He has now sold his ownership in his practice and is settling into semi-retirement, working 3 days a week, and trying to play more golf.

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
below.
 
Many Thanks,
Cindy Berkland
