NOTICE: Omaha Night Rotary Club will have Hybrid meetings thru April- Join us either at Vincenzo's or online.
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?
I had no idea that the President of the Opera Omaha Guild was the spouse of one of our members!  We are honored to have Kelly Sanford as our speaker this week letting us know what the Guild does for the community, which includes events such as the Cotillion (etiquette classes for area 6th graders), social lunches and pre-performance parties.
Are you having trouble filling a position in your office?  It could be you need two people to share the job to fill your needs but still maintain options for the employee.  Job Share Connect is an Omaha company that does just that.  Jessica Charlsen and Jina Picarella founded this company and will be our speakers on Tuesday, April 20th.  
Our club will be sponsoring Ofek Nuriel from Israel to attend District 5650 RYLA 2021.  Ofek will be the presenter on June 5th at 10 AM as well as attending the sessions.  (See more for calendar).  All Rotarians are invited to join in the fun for RYLA since it will be done via Zoom on Saturday mornings from May 1 to June 12.  You do not have to attend all the sessions, but you do have to register by April 23 to receive the link.  
 
Follow the group on Instagram at #RYLA5650.
We will be doing hybrid meetings - that is both meeting in person at Vincenzo's for those who are comfortable, and online - for those that aren't comfortable yet with face-to-face meetings. 
 
If you are attending in-person, please remember to bring your facemask to wear when you are moving through the restaurant.
 
Please do not attend in-person if you have been exposed to COVID or generally aren't feeling well.  We want to keep everyone safe, healthy, and happy.
EXTENDED THROUGH THE END OF FEBRUARY
Our Rotary District (5650) is joining with the District 5630 in Western Nebraska for a Virtual Food Drive supporting Food Bank for the Heartland.  Food insecurity is such a problem right now - not only because of the weather, but because of the pandemic.  This project will benefit families throughout Nebraska and western Iowa.  Double your impact! Our District is matching donations up to $12,000Click here to donate or read more below.
Our speaker from our meeting on February 2nd was Stephanie Olson, CEO of the Set Me Free Project.  We heard about this great amazing project based here in the Omaha since 2015; their mission is to bring preventative education to youth and families to stop trafficking before it starts. Find out more on their website at https://www.setmefreeproject.net/.  Continue reading to read a follow up from Stephanie.
IPDG Mick McKinley presented our club with a 2019-20 Rotary Citation Platinum on October 20th.  The achievement of goals set by the club earns a Rotary Citation.  The Citation with Presidential Distinction - Platinum level is the highest achievement level - only 3 clubs in our District achieved this additional distinction.  As Mick said when presenting this "Once again this proves that your small club can do really big things".
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.
