Secretary Nick Rosenberry Report

Omaha West Rotary Club Secretary Report for April 19, 2019:


This past Friday, Phil Schreier from Northwest visited. We also had several guests. Warren Whitted III brought Josh Wilcox. Matt McKeever invited Joe Macchieths. Jill Slupe & Lori Benton invited Elizabeth Hallgren and Laura Iliff brought her daughter, Caroline Iliff.

For good news, the Lock Box was named after John “Moneyman” Morey to thank him for his $1,000 donation to help offset the first-year dues of new members! Also, Marryssa Brown will be starting a new job! Dwayne joked that he won’t have to buy lunch. Jamie Summerfelt spoke about Easter Seals and their upcoming 100-year anniversary. Carl Greiner’s brother completed a program in alternative medicine and as been offered a job. Dan Farris only had to make one trip to the ER while on a motorcycle trip in Portugal and Spain. Mark Manhart Sr. told a joke about a nun getting a root canal. He may be taking over for me 😊. And finally, Tim Neal was proud of all of the people in the Midwest in their response to the flooding.

Also, a long-time member of our club, Frank Matthews, 97 passed away. He had a very nice obituary in the World Herald on April 19th.

Nick closed with a joke and wished everyone a good week
