Hesburgh Month of Service

Each May, Notre Dame Clubs around the country celebrate the legacy of Fr. Hesburgh by completing service projects in their communities.  Last year, over 20 ND Club of Omaha members took part in our day of service.  This year we hope to gather even more volunteers for our service day on Saturday, May 18.

We will be working at the Jesuit Academy camp located at 245th and Q in Elkhorn.  This family friendly event includes a range of activities for any volunteer.  Cabins will need to be cleaned, the gravel driveway filled in, and hedges trimmed.  Bring your shovels, rakes, and rags and the club will provide lunch.
Individuals or families are welcome to help any time between 9:30 and 2:00 (lunch around noon).  If would like to attend this event, please fill out the volunteer form at this link.
Go Irish!

The All New Site and Officer Updates

The Notre Dame Club of Omaha site has been updated!  We look forward to a great year that started with 60+ attendees at the National Championship gamewatch.  Joe Kelly ’85 takes over as the new president this year along with Mike Mansour (vice-president), Joe Weigand (treasurer) , Brian Diss (secretary), Angie Kizer (SSLP Coordinator), and Matthew Johnson (Young Alumni Coordinator).


National Championship Game

With over 100,000 students and alumni requesting tickets for the National Championship Game there were a lot of people who didn’t win the lottery. If you were one of the lucky ones to score tickets, but won’t be able to make the game, a number of people in the Notre Dame Club of Omaha would be willing to take them off your hands. You can post them to the club’s ticket board via the <a href="http://ndclubomaha.com/?page_id=198"Football Tickets tab. Click on National Ticket Game to see the contact information for any available tickets.

The club will also be hosting a gamewatch, with details coming soon. Go Irish!!
