Greg introduced our speaker Mandy Aleksiak, the Rose Theater Audience Services Director and  Lead Strategist for expansion and retention of The Rose Theater family membership program..She shared a lot of the history and other information about The Rose Theater. It remains dedicated to their original mission: To enrich the lives of children and families through live theater arts and education.

For almost 70 years, the Omaha Theater Company has served children and families in the Omaha area and beyond. Families come together not just for an hour or two of quality entertainment but also to laugh, cry, sigh and witness the magic of theater and its power to bring people together in a shared experience. It was great learning so much about the theater.

Our speaker for next week is Troy Solberg - Youth Volunteer Coordinator for Henry Doorly Zoo.

Next Meeting is May 20th at noon at Legends.
