Meeting live at Vinceno'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?
Each year our Project Wee Care volunteers have been helping local Millard area families in need.  Since 2006 we have been there for over 16,000 of our neighbors when they needed a helping hand by providing needed clothing, food, and personal care items. 

 
Gary will be riding in the 101-mile Ride to End Polio in Tuscan on November 19th.  Gary provides his narrative of the event and a link to how you can help to eradicate Polio.

Interesting thing about this year's Rotary theme logo, those 7 dots represent the 7 causes that build local and international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world. One of those dots represents September's Rotary focus on education.

If you'd like to be reminded of the 7 causes, here's a link: https://www.rotary.org/en/our-causes

 
Are we doing all that we can to make sure our club is welcoming to everyone, treating everyone with dignity and respect and allowing all voices to be heard?  That's part of Rotary's commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.  We may be a small club, but that means this is even more important that we are aware of all aspects of what this really means.  It's not just about the things we can see, but also about the things we can't see.  
 
This is a leadership training opportunity - and will benefit not only you as a Rotarian, but will benefit the company you work for.  For more details continue reading.
Our club received two awards at the District Conference this year.  The first one was for hitting our Citation goals.  Our club was one of nine that hit their goals out of twenty clubs in our district.  The other award was for our level of participation in the Polio Plus Fund contributions.  Both of these awards were achieved because of the leadership of Gretchen and the efforts of all of you throughout the year.  Congratulations!  Lets do it again this year.
Another great hands-on project completed with another map board cleanup at Roberts Park.  This one had some major damage to the plexiglass, but we figured out that steel wool and headlight restoration stuff actually works. This board is the only one we've seen with lettering on both both sides of it. 
 
Dear Club President Gretchen,Your Rotary Club, Omaha Night, continues to do amazing work! We noticed that 100% of your club members gave $100 USD or more to The Rotary Foundation’s Annual Fund last Rotary year. Thank you for your leadership and inspiration to have made this accomplishment possible.We hope you can take a minute to celebrate this achievement during Foundation Month with your fellow Omaha Night members during your next meeting. This dedication and support of our Foundation truly makes Doing Good in the World Possible. Keep up the great work!With our sincerest appreciation and thanks,The Rotary Foundation
