Wherry Sendoff
Last week was the highest attendance we have had since coming back in person. Not even the NU President can beat the record. It was a special meeting as we had a special program for PDG Sharon Wherry and PP Dan Wherry. The Wherrys are moving to Michigan to be near with family, after half a century in Lincoln. Dan and Sharon are stalwart Rotarians and great Nebraskans. Thank you to all who came to see the Wherrys last week. We will miss you Dan and Sharon! Thank you for all your service to Rotary and to Nebraska!

Welcome New Rotarian Laurie Fraser
Laurie Fraser has made Lincoln her home since 1984 when she moved from San Francisco to attend UNL.  One thing led to another and she is still here today. The owner and CEO of Doorstep Diner Catering, The Event Space at 5550, and Country Sliced Ham & Cafe she spends her day managing an amazing team of culinary artists, working with brides and clients, and occasionally serving as "salad girl" on buffet lines. Her passions are people and connecting them to the right solutions.  Guiding people to make a great decision that is a win-win for all is her goal, after all, making people happy is the key to longevity in the hospitality industry.  Laurie is excited to get to know everyone in Rotary because strangers are just friends you have yet to meet! 

Thank you, Christine Weeks for sponsoring Laurie to Rotary. Welcome, Laurie!
