Voluntary donations to Club: For many years our welfare fund had an annual income from our club members purchasing 10 tickets at $6 each for the pancake feed near the Century Link Center, which most our members then gave away. As this income is still needed to support our budgeted donations to non-profit groups , members are encouraged to donate $60 or more to the club in the next couple of weeks. Those members who volunteered with the Sarpy County Tax Certificate sales are again donating their $100 each to this fund. All donors will be entered into a drawing of $100.
