To my dearly beloved Omahans,
My heart skips a beat when I think about all the hours you invest to make me a better place. Every effort you make to bring neighbors together, every minute you spent worrying and acting on a concern to help the well being of yourself and your neighbors, and every single time you had an instinct to act on the right choice for me and all Omahans.

Gather together to share information with one another, attend and actively participate in educational workshops, tour neighborhoods and recognize achievements of neighborhoods across the nation.
