"Human Trafficking in Nebraska" 
Chair of the Day: Holly Hollenbeck 
Invocator: John Maxell 
11:15 Greeter: Roger Utman 
11:45 Greeter: Josh Berry 
New Member Table Host: Madeline Moyer 
Last week Alice Schumaker served as greeter and invocator. We had several announcements and presentations.  Rose Mary Hefley introduced Nancy Hintz who talked about the Nebraska Humane Society and introduced her furry friend.    The RISK bag was at $170 and John Hoich  won a free lunch.   
Last week Terry Kucera introduced us to new member Eric Bopp.  Eric graduated from Valentine High School in 2010.  He attended UNL and the Dallas Institute of Funeral Service in Dallas, Texas.  Upon graduation he moved to Falls City, NE and worked at the funeral home for 14 months.
In March of 2017, Eric moved to Omaha and began working at Heafey Hoffman Dworak and Cutler.  He is a licensed Funeral Director in Nebraska and Iowa.  In his free time, Eric enjoys golfing, traveling, and anything to do with the Nebraska Huskers.
Last week Don Leu introduced us to new member Ethan Meirovitz.  Ethan is a sophomore undergraduate student at UNO and is studying Business Administration. In his albeit limited spare time he is an active member of the Freemasons’ Shiloh Lodge 327, the Omaha Valley of the Scottish Rite, and Tangier Shrine. Ethan has pursued several roles within these organizations including the Scottish Rite Knights of Saint Andrew, which is a service organization made up of new members, and the Tangier Shrine Provost, which provides safety and security at Shrine events.
Ethan is also a Volunteer Crisis Counselor for the Crisis Text Line at 741-741 and enjoys it immensely. Ethan brings a unique perspective to the rotary from that of a full-time student and hopes to be an advocate of the rotary in his various networks. He looks forward to continuing his service to others in Suburban Rotary, enjoys making new connections, and is very excited to be here.
Thank you to John Maxell for hosting a fun After Hours at the Scottish Rite Cathedral!
Mark your calendars for our next event on Thursday, 2/21 hosted by Cruise Planners. 
Thank you to all who have signed up to help with Winter Night Watch.  This is our last week.   Moving on we need many volunteers for our meal packaging project. All ages are welcome to volunteer for this and we can have seats for folks who need to sit.  
We need over a 100 volunteers so considering getting a group of friends, family, or co-workers together.

Last week Amanda Fink and Jared Wills served as greeters. Matt Darling gave our invocation.  We had several announcements and presentations.  Terry Ferguson introduced John Newman who talked about the past and future of Lauritzen Gardens.   The RISK bag was at $125 and Joe Sequenzia won a free lunch.   
Consider making your annual donation to the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.  This money comes back to us in three years in the form of Global and District grants to spend on our projects.   Your donation goes around the world to promote literacy, fight disease, and encourage peace.   Every Rotarian Every Year asks that you consider a gift of at least $100 to the Rotary Foundation. 
If you have never given, Suburban Rotary will match your first $100 to the Foundation giving you $200 toward your Paul Harris Fellowship (cumulative giving of $1000).    

You can also bring a check made out to the Rotary Foundation to Thursday's meeting and Jennifer will send it in to you (or have a form for you to fill out with your credit card number).

Mark your calendars for Thursday, December 20th for our annual Holiday Luncheon.   Check-in opens at 11:30 and the program starts at 12:30. Come early to socialize!  Bring a guest.  Pre-registration is not required but if you email Jennifer the name of your guest, she will have a nametag ready.
Cost is $25 and features a plated steak luncheon, dessert and entertainment by a Magician.
Last week , Kathryn Schubert recognized Bob Kment as a Paul Harris Fellow +1 for his donations of $2000 to the Rotary Foundation and Ron Pearson as a Paul Harris Fellow+3 for his donations of $3000 to the Rotary Foundation.  Thank you for your generosity!
Through your donations to our local Foundation the Crestridge committee received a $500 grant to stock the Santa Shoppe at the school and Rotarians helped students select gifts for their family members last week.  
Thank you to the generous Rotarians who donated to this project. We raised over $4000!  We spent about half of that on Friday when taking some of the students shopping at JCPenney and purchasing extra clothes and shoes for the school nurse.   The rest will be spent out over the school year for clothing for students.  


Thank you to David Kutler/Body Basics for his sponsorship of speaker and student lunches for the month of January. 


Sponsors are needed for the 2018-2019 Rotary year. Cost is $125. Please contact Jennifer to sponsor a month.
