Senior First Activities
Jenny Tucker was our meeting leader today, providing a new leadership experience for one of our members.  Janet Osterhout introduced her guest Rita Ryan.
It was announced that our next meeting is cancelled so that members can go to the Axiom Elegant Evening for a Worthy Cause.  There will be a special Club Assembly meeting on September 29th (noon) at the Woman's Club.  All members should plan on attending if possible.  No guests requested.
There are a number of upcoming events of interest:
  • This Friday is Lincoln Service Club night at the LHS football game (see Kris's previous emails)
  • Book buddies is starting September 22nd - 2pm at Creekside (again see Kris's previous emails)
        This is a great experience to help a 3rd grader improve their reading skills
  • October 8th is a District Foundation Seminar - See our website main page for more info
  • October 22nd is the Annual District Foundation Dinner - See our website main page for more info
Kimberly Fricke outlined the Community Service committee activities and what is currently planned for this year.  
Our speakers for the evening were Jamee Horning and Dawn Marie Pesola.  Jamee is the Executive Director of Seniors First (www.SeniorsFirst.Org) and described the activities available for seniors from Seniors First. Dawn Marie (who incidentally was in Kimberly's high school graduating class - and they had not seen each other since then) is responsible for the Senior's Cafe in Lincoln.  The meeting provided a good connection since our Community Service committee has started activities to improve the attendance at the Lincoln Senior Cafe, where seniors can go to get a meal.
