Last week Tim Neal recognized Andy Shim for his 3 years of service on the West Omaha Rotary Board of Directors.
Congratulations to Candi Jacobs who received her blue badge last week! 
Join us on Thursday, August 4th for a fun night at the ballpark with Rotarians across the District.   CLICK HERE to get your tickets. 

The Omaha Storm Chasers and the Rotary District 5650 Veterans Fellowship group are teaming up to raise money on Military Appreciation Night for our Annual District-Wide ballgame! $6 from each ticket purchased will go to our designated beneficiary, Operation 22 Til Freedom (https://operation22tilfreedom.com/)!. They raise funds to help veterans in need and to lower veteran suicide. Money raised will help veterans all over the metro area!


Please plan on coming a bit early that night to join us in our private tailgating area in front of the stadium and to watch District Governor Barbara Bartle throw out one of the ceremonial first pitches!


Please contact fellow Rotarian / Omaha Storm Chasers staff member Zach Ziler at (402) 738-5137 or zachz@omahastormchasers.com if you have any additional questions.
