The RISK bag was at $502 and Ralph Williams won a free lunch.

Congratulations to Judy Sealer- 3 years, Tracy Rowland- 4 years, and Jim Leslie- 39 years who were recognized for 100% attendance by Nick Eastland last week. 
Thank you to all of those who supported the wide variety of programs Suburban Rotary does by giving to our local Foundation fundraiser.  It's not too late to help us reach our goal.  If you would like to make a contribution of any size, please contact Jennifer. We will continue to recognize our President's Scholarship Circle members (donors of $300 or more) for a couple more weeks. Thank you for your generosity! 
Thank you to the amazing car show committee (especially Chairs Amanda Fink and Eric Dawson) and the 60+ volunteers who helped pull off this event on Saturday. Final numbers are still being tallied but we will have a report for the club soon.    A special thank you to Peter Fink/Certified Transmission who allowed us to use his car museum as part of this event.  
On Saturday, June 1st Suburban Rotary is going to hold our first-ever career fair for young adults exiting foster care and other at-risk youth.   Approximately 23K kids age out of foster care each year.  About 20% of these will become homeless after turning 18 and leaving the system.  By age 24 only 1 out of every 2 young adults aging out of foster care will have gainful employment.  This career fair is Suburban Rotary's attempt to do something about these statistics.
We will have employers and career resources for these young people on at Center Mall (1941 S. 42nd Street) for students to learn about opportunities for employment, military service, health care and other community resources. We will provide lunch and goody bags for the young people and will hold gift card drawing as an incentive to visit the booths.  Please join us and volunteer this day to help young people in our community.  We need approximately 35 volunteers. If you would like to donate a gift card or prize, please contact Kelly Adams.

Want to enjoy the great outdoors and enjoy being above ground?  Then come to the next Adopt A Plot yard waste clean up at Prospect Hill Cemetery, 3202 Parker Street, where our club has made a commitment to return every three weeks to tidy up a visible section of the oldest cemetery in Omaha.  Our next time to get 'er done is Saturday, June 8th, at 9:30 a.m.  We rake, sweep, weed whack, pick up sticks and litter and make the grounds look respectable.   Cookies and blisters galore!  Future Saturday Adopt A Plot clean up days include: 6/29, 7/27, 8/17 and 9/14.  Contact Ward Peters and join in on the fun! 


Thank you to Eric Dawson/Shadow Lake Collision for his sponsorship of speaker and student lunches for the month of May.
