With the beginning of the new year already here, I took a few minutes to reflect on all of the good times we have had in 2017. Our year was marked by trips, a style show and our legendary Christmas Party - but the best is yet to come!  

The highlight of our year had to be our trip down the Rhine River. We spent our days floating through the heart of Europe, visiting sites normally unseen by most tourists and sampling the local fare. We even had the opportunity to wish our good friend Donna a “Happy Birthday!” while aboard our ship.

We had some who joined me on a trip to Branson, Missouri. We celebrated the holiday season enjoying shows, rides and Silver Dollar City’s light spectacular. I know it got me in the Christmas spirit! 

Looking back on all of the good times we had in 2017 makes me grateful for each and every member of the Ambassador Club. You have truly made this a year to remember.

Our calendar of events for 2018 is nearly complete and you won’t want to miss all of the exciting things we have in store for you. There is even a rumor that we might be seeing the renowned musical “Hamilton” in Omaha. Keep on the lookout for our 2018 schedule! 

If you like meeting new people, catching up with old friends and enjoying exciting new experiences, come see me. Join the Ambassador Club and help me celebrate all life has to offer. I can’t wait to show you what we have planned for 2018!
