At our Annual Dinner and Meeting this past Saturday, January 18th, our club installed its 2020 Officers and recognized some special volunteers in our club. Volunteers are the heart and soul of our club!
Karen Dix-Johnson was recognized as our 2019 Walker of the Year. Karen is our smiling ambassador when she’s not busy leading walks or helping wherever she’s needed.
Ann has lined up speakers for our club’s monthly meetings for over 20 years! Her AVA Meritorious Service Award is richly deserved.
We say “thank you” to Tricia Abel as our club’s secretary, as she hands over the club minutes to Dave Brown, our secretary for 2020.
Our annual meeting and dinner was held Saturday, January 19th at Valentino’s Pizza south of 108th and L Streets in Omaha. The 2019 Officers were installed and the Walker of the Year award was given to Lee Frantz, club president in 2017 and recently installed as president for 2019.
31 people attended the January 21, 2017 Annual Meeting and Dinner at Valentino’s (108th & Q area). Incoming president Lee Frantz and wife Donna Campbell decorated the tables with a star theme in anticipation of our August 18 – 21 Total Solar Eclipse events, with Milky Way candy bars, Starbursts and Sunshine butterscotch candies.
A highlight of every Annual Meeting is the presentation of the Walker of the Year award. 2015 Walkers Jim and Martha McGahan presented the 2016 award to Ann Drebot. Ann arranges for speakers at our monthly club meetings and has done so for many, many years.
