Last week Butch Ethington introduced us to new member Diana Fuller.
A fourth generation Omahan,  Diana graduated from Central High School, the University of Nebraska at Omaha with a BA in Journalism and the Creighton University School of Law. She spent over 40 years at Mutual of Omaha in legal and compliance positions and retired as the Compliance and Ethics  Director.

Diana is married to Jim O’Connor, a retired partner from Baird Holm law firm. They have two daughters. Their eldest is married and also an attorney. She currently is an elected member of the University of Nebraska Board of Regents. Their youngest daughter lives in Colorado where she is an animal-assisted therapist for children in crisis and has two golden doodles who work with her along with two therapy bunnies in training.

Diana and Jim have two Cavelier King Charles spaniels who they are in the process of training.  She enjoys being outdoors, gardening, reading and her new venture -  learning pickle ball.  Welcome, Diana! 
This year we are presenting Yeti water bottles to our Senior Recognition Day students.  We want to offer the opportunity for Rotarians to purchase one if you so desire. Cost is $45.00 and our hope is that they will be navy.  Navy is currently on backorder, so they might be black.
Orders are due by March 1.  Find this story on our website omahawestrotary.org and and then click on the button to order/pay. 
Thank you to everyone who helped with Meal Packaging last week! A special thanks to Brett Wawers for organizing! 
Join us for a monthly Happy Hour to mingle in an informal setting.  All metro-area Rotarians and guests are invited!   Our next Happy Hour is February 9th from 4:30 to 7 at Cunningham's (10904 West Dodge Rd.)
Thank you to Deb Sepich/Driving Development for sponsoring our February meetings.

Rotary is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional and community leaders.  Members of Rotary clubs provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.  There are more than 34,000 Rotary clubs located in more than  212 countries and geographical areas.  Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto Service Above Self, Rotary's main objective is service - in the community, in the workplace and throughout the world.

Keep engaged and entertained while attending Rotary Club meetings from around the Metro/District online or in-person.
