We will be meeting at Vincenzo's on October 18th at 5:30 for a regularly scheduled meeting.
Rotary's Mission:
We provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through our fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.
President's Pen
Well, WE did it!  We pulled off our first fundraiser in over three years.  Thank you to everyone who participated in making the day a success.  I am excited to hear about how much was raised for NOMA and look forward to our next fundraiser.
Now that the fundraiser is behind us, we will be returning our focus onto growing our club and achieving our Rotary Citation goals so that our club can make a difference in our community.
One of the best ways to grow our club is by having engaging speakers that not only make us want to show up, but bring a guest or two as well.  Please think about who that might be so that we can fill November and December with exciting presenters.
Today we really do have an engaging speaker.  Gary Bren who will be discussing Rotary's commitment to eradicating Polio and his upcoming Polio ride.
I look forward to seeing you at tonight!    
Thank You!
Dennis Ritter

Imagine Rotary Tour Summary
Are you curious about how the Imagine Rotary Tour went for our District?
Here is a summary of the tour described by our District Governor, Barbara Bartle
7 Dots - 7 Causes

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

Well Done Omaha Night!
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.
Rotary's Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
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.
