President's Column
Dear Kiwanians,
I am privileged and honored to be your 2015-16 Club President.  Great Presidents have gone before me. I am humbled by what they have achieved and hope to carry on a tradition to meet all expectations of this office. I love our club for many reasons and have high expectations of what we can do this year. But, most of all, I hope that the enthusiasm of our membership continues to pull others off the streets at Friday noon-hours to become believers of the Kiwanis creed.
To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than              to the material values of life.
To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business and professional standards.
To develop by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive and serviceable citizenship.
To provide through Kiwanis clubs a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service and to build better communities.
To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism and goodwill.
If you're a Kiwanian, meet with us regularly. You'll get the most of this club that way. If you're a past guest, reading this, consider checking out this club again. It's a club rolling in accomplishments with higher goals than ever before. There is work for us to do for us to reach them. But, I ask you, think of what we can accomplish if more of us come together to create a greater Kiwanis Club of Omaha? It takes people - engaged and committed.
Thank you for giving me this opportunity. I look forward to serving you this next year.
Thank you,
Shannon Norman, Farm Bureau Financial Services
