Our club is at its best when you are an active part of it.
We have many ways to be involved, starting with participation in our numerous committees. We have frequent service projects for hands on assistance. We need help with fundraisers throughout the year, including the Gala and the Kiwanis Cup golf outing. And we have opportunities to help our foundation through direct financial contributions.
You have the best understanding of your personal time, talent, and resources. If you are very involved today, thank you for all you do. If you want to be more involved, please give me a call so you can find a good fit for your unique gifts. Our club has many different types of activities needing a wide variety of skills. I am confident something can fit you. Imagine what we can accomplish with everyone playing an active part.

At our last meeting, we were pleased to have Omaha's Chief of Police, Todd Schmaderer, as our guest speaker. Chief Schmaderer is the head of 1,000 employees, including 800 officers and 200 support staff. The majority of his job entails managing those employees, working on the budget and building community relations. Chief Schmaderer spoke briefly on crime in our city. Omaha's crime rate compared to other cities it's size is low. One of Chief Schmaderer's objectives is to put crime in a controllable element, so that it can be reduced.
