It is an honor and privilege to be your President this year. Our Chapter has a strong tradition of service to our members and the community and together we can build on that legacy!

Last year we were able to get together to pack meals for the hungry, learn how dogs are used in law enforcement, how domestic violence affects us all, and how an American Ninja Warrior overcame many barriers to become successful. We got some insight into Nebraska politics and learned about the burn unit at CHI St. Elizabeth.

The year came to a wonderful conclusion at our Christmas Party at the Nebraska Club, with the chorale ensemble from Pius High School and an inspirational message from the Salvation Army. 

Our board members have been working hard to plan our monthly meetings, including having Lincoln Police Chief Jeff Bliemeister speak in January and Kate Engle from Nebraska Innovation Campus speak in February.

Here is our meeting schedule…….
