In the hot summer months, join the Cool Kids at Rotary!  Now Live at Vincenzo's
What is the Omaha Rotary Night Club?
We are a group of Committed Leaders that are passionate about: Exchanging ideas, experiences and learning opportunities; Taking Action to create positive changes that benefit communities near or far; Building Friendships; and HAVING FUN

What this translates to is: We are a group of people from all walks of life who meet at Vincenzo's (15701 Pacific St.) on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Tuesdays of the month at 5:30 to socialize, eat, sip, and discuss ways to make the world a better place. Guests and visitors are ALWAYS welcome. Please come visit us anytime!
 
What's Happening?
Our speaker Tuesday September 21 is a young woman who attended our social event on August 31 - Molly Hobson Vaida.  Molly owns the Landlock Gallery which is a artist market and Makers Shoppe and a lot more.  The topic for the meeting tonight will be how public art spaces contribute to city growth and talent retention, access to local art for all and ways that members can support local artist in their community.  For more about the Landlock Gallery, visit www.landlockgallery.com
At our meeting, we decided that trying to do a couple of "Off-Tuesday" service projects would be a good idea - so here's our first one from September 14, 2021
 
Thank you to Mark Hobson and Darcy Michalek (and her nephew) for re-finishing the Map Board at Aksarben.  It took the 4 of us about 2.5 hours to get it all done.  It was not nearly as in as bad of shape as Zorinsky was, but this is a high visibility board.  We even had two people that said "Thank You" to us while we were working.
 
Here are the before and after pictures:

We still have a lot more of these that can be done - not only by us but by all the clubs.  What's next?
Our speaker tonight is going to talk to us about the Cross Training Center.  At the center, they accept anything with a cord, battery, or motor.  And through the recycling process, they provide vocational job skills and training to youth and adults who are underserved and under employed.  They have 21 job skills that are taught through the process.   Find out more about how they are changing lives at our meeting on October 5th.
Our 5th Tuesday Social event was  a Wine and Beer tasting at the Corkscrew in the Blackstone District on Tuesday, August 31st at 5:30 PM.
 
 
For the second year in a row, our club has been selected to received the Best Small Club International Service Project for our work on the Koutiala Women's and Children' Hospital in Mali.  
 
Our video was also featured at the District Conference in the morning session on Public Image, which drew kudos from around the District for both the project and the video.
