For good news, Starla Waite is going to have her 5th granddaughter.  Manny Paz said that this was his last meeting and wanted everyone to know that he had a great experience and thanked Dick Sturgeon for inviting him to join.  Ric Miller’s son recently finished his first year of grad school at the UNL architectural school.  His son also curated a show at the Joslyn art museum.  Carl Philo recently returned from Jamaica were he celebrated his 50th wedding anniversary.  Elizabeth Hallgren is opening her office on Monday after more than 6 months of planning.  Dick Sturgeon recently celebrated his 38th wedding anniversary and passed the annual review.  Lori Benton’s father recently sold his 1928 Plymouth.  Dick Lerner will be going to Russia, Sweden, and Norway.  Mark Manhart was recently at a “fantastic” jazz club called the Jewell at 10th & Capitol.  Kim Kuhle is hosting a fundraiser on July 3rd at her house to help with the making of a documentary called Remember the Drumstick.  Gail and Irv Veitzer are going to Los Angeles to celebrate the 90th birthday of one of Irv’s friends from high school. 

Nick closed with a joke and wished everyone a good week and happy 4th of July.  Gretchen will be taking over starting the next meeting.  She will do a great job!!  


Last Week at Rotary
Jill Slupe and Nick Rosenberry presided over their last meeting.  Tarina Cox-Jones gave the invocation.  John Morey and Don Otis served as Greeters. Lori Benton, Brad Rohrig, and Starla Waite all helped with Sgt. at Arms duties and Manny Paz was Cashier.  Yolanda Hoffman gave her vocational and we had a new member introduction.  Kari Ketcham introduced Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson who gave us an update on the activities of the AG's office and answered questions.
Welcome David Thompson! 
Last week Jill Slupe introduced us to new member David M. Thompson.  David  is an attorney with the Omaha law firm of Carlson & Burnett, where his practice focuses on Elder Law, Medicaid planning, veterans benefits, and guardianships/conservatorships. David also directs the firm’s marketing and business development efforts and has presented and published articles on a wide range of topics. He currently serves as Vice President of the Elder Law Section of the Nebraska State Bar Association. 
David first came to the Omaha area as a child when his father, an Air Force officer, was stationed at Offutt Air Base in Bellevue.  He received his B.A. with high distinction from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  After completing his master’s degree at Oxford University in England on a Marshall Scholarship and his Ph.D. at the University of Chicago, David attended law school at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law in Chicago, where he served as Editor-in-Chief of the Northwestern University Law Review and was the recipient of the Raoul Berger Prize for Senior Research.  David returned to Omaha in 2013 to care for his aging parents. 
When he is not working or tending to family responsibilities, he can be found working in his garden, perusing Omaha’s art galleries, and enjoying the many fine restaurants that have popped up in the years since he left town. Welcome, David!
