Next Tuesday, the 27th of March, a group of retired former Omaha Works men and women will continue a breakfast tradition that started more than 30 years ago.  The current location of the breakfast at eight o’clock am is Jimbo’s Diner in the shopping center SE of 84th and Harrison.

 During the last year, the number of those attending has averaged around 20.  George mentioned to me that he thought that Tom Baye who used to lead the breakfast with notices and updates about things related to the Works retirees was coming, but I forgot to ask George if he made.  Tom always had a good joke or two to share with the group. 

This morning Thursday, March 22, the Omaha Works Volunteers were on KMTV Morning Blend at 9:00 am.  They talked about the Hug-A-Bears that they have been making and the need to continue.  The funds are almost gone and they were appealing for funds so that they could continue making the Hug-A-Bears they distribute free to community service groups throughout the Omaha Area.  Steve Miller is working on getting a link setup for the youtube video of the show if you would like to watch.

The Omaha Works Volunteers have set up a GoFundMe page to raise funds to continue when their funds are depleted this year.  Yesterday I sent out a notice from Jerry Golmanavich but I forgot to include a link to the GoFundMe page if you can help them out.  The link is www.gofundme.com/help-the-omahaworks-volunteers.  If you don’t want to contribute that way you can make out a check to Jacob’s House and mail to Stephen Miller, Treasurer, 5228 No. 158 Av., Omaha, NE, 68116.

Here is a thought for those of you that will be attending the breakfast next week.  Take time to mention this breakfast to any retiree and ask them to come with you to the breakfast if they are interested.  It would be nice to see the attendance increase.  The coffee is free and breakfasts are priced right.

Last month George was blocked as a spammer and rather than fight the ISP’s he is stepping away for a while as our ePostmaster.  I am exploring other ways to email to the ISP’s that have blocked both George and I.  Please bear with us as we work through these blocks.

Update on the spam blocking by the ISP’s of George and me.  I have purchased a bulk email service from Constant Contact.  This service will help us in many ways with the reports made available to help us with the emails.  I sent the first email with the new email service yesterday.  New from Constant Contact are the hot links on the page, just move your curser around and you will find them.

A note of interest for all of us seniors. 
Bill Kadereit, President of the National Retiree Legislative Network, sends notices to us asking to contact our representatives in Washington on many issues that affect us and our retirement.  So when you see that request it just takes a second to click on the link and let your representatives know how you feel about the issues.  After you write to your congress person you will receive a Thank You for taking the time to send an email to Washington.
