Hello everyone and thank you for your willingness and assistance to help get the Zoo ready for opening day 2017!

2. For groups bringing multiple shifts of individuals on the weekend:

a. Please plan to have someone from your group stationed at the office when the second (and/or third) groups arrive to let them into the office and show them where Ike is having your group work.

Please see the information below for any questions you might have leading up to your clean up days. If you need anything in the meantime or if you have questions that are not answered from below, please let me know how I can be of assistance!

Hi New Folks

I apologize for not posting much in the last few weeks.  It has been a busy time, with the Railyard Beach Bash, and followed by the Buffett Concert in Omaha, and MotM 2016.

I know we have had a number of additional members sign-up in the last two months.  If you have been viewing this page in hopes of finding out about the club, thank you, here are a few things you should know:

  • Our method of communication is through Yahoo Groups.  You must be offered an invitation from me.  Send an email to 

  • After you send the email, get a Yahoo account, they are free, and other than for this, you don’t need it again.  If you have a Yahoo account, use that account.  I will send the invitation to you; there are a number of steps to follow, read the directions, please. 

  • The next meeting will be at Grata at about 70th and A Streets in Clock Tower Shopping, on Thursday the 17 of November.  We meet in the back room at 7:00, but come early (about 6:00) if you can:  have some good food and drinks, and make friends!  There is no meeting in December, but there is a Christmas Party.  Information will be in the yahoo groups email … sign-up.
