Be ready to share with others the top reasons you enjoy joining the Kiwanis Club of Greater Omaha. Kiwanis International has created the attached guide to assist you in “marketing” our club to your friends and acquaintances. Spend a few minutes on this so that the next time you are visiting with a potential Kiwanian, you will be ready to sell them on why they should join the Kiwanis adventure. I look forward to hearing some of your stories at a future meeting.

Holiday Greetings from your newly elected president. With one month already “in the books” I still feel as though I am still running to catch a bus – learning what the responsibilities of the office really are. I do appreciate all the helpful advice passed along by Brian and other past presidents. This is truly a Kiwanis club with members that bring diversity; not only in age but also in experience.
Together we are one and can accomplish great good for the children in our community and the world. Our diversity is also evident in the quality and variety of topics of our speakers. The list for sponsoring speakers for the entire year is filled – thank you!
With winter now upon us (what a shock) it is my sincere wish that all of you experience joy and are surrounded by those that care about you.
Warmest Holiday Wishes to all my fellow Kiwanians and your families.
Greg Gubbels, President of First Star Recycling.
– He will talk about the ins and outs of recycling, etc.

Pat Casey, Owner of Home Buyers Protection Company

Taylor Wilson, UNMC Med Center
