I cannot wait to see what is next!

I was working on some of my GO! tasks tonight and couldn’t help but smile when I thought of all the great events we have coming up. Our next event is Mixology on January 27th at the beautiful Apothecary Building in the Haymarket. We also have some great luncheons planned as well as a fund-raising event in March at Kuck’s Auto Museum and I for one cannot wait to see the General Lee! We have come a long way in the last year and have some amazing volunteers working hard ot make Lincoln a better place to live, work, and play. I encourage you to check out the event calender and come enjoy the fruits of our labor! We need our membership to be strong to continue to be a strong organization and I hope to see you get involved at an event soon!

See what’s BREWING in December!

I am soooo excited to see the new brewery in Lincoln up close and personal. Blue Blood Brewery is ready to start making beer and GO! members will be one of the first to see it. Owner Brian Podwinski will take us on a tour so we can see how the experts do it and of course there will be tasting. As with any GO! event I am sure the evening will include plenty of networking, laughs, and memories.

Hope to see everyone there!!!

Celebrate Lincoln Music

I am seriously stoked! After much anticipation, the headliners for this year’s Celebrate Lincoln festival have been announced! Kicking off the festival with some good ol’ Rock n’ Roll on Friday, June 10th are the Wheezetones and Soul Dawg. Winner of the Lincoln Journal Star’s “Lincoln’s favorite cover band” award, the Wheezetones are sure to play something you can rock out to! Another Lincoln favorite, Soul Dawg is known for their danceable beats.

If you know me at all, you know I love a good pair of cowboy boots and a catchy country tune. New this year, as part of BryanLGH’s 85th Birthday Celebration, is country night at the festival! Saturday, June 11th, Lincoln will welcome big-time country artist Rodney Atkins! One of Rodney’s current popular songs is “Farmer’s Daughter.” Sound familiar? Opening for Rodney will be Cactus Hill, another sweet band. All this for only six bucks! Um, yeah, that’s cheaper than most ANYTHING fun I can think of to celebrate a Saturday night. For more info on the festival, visit www.celebratelincoln.org.

I’d like to mention one more thing today – the next time you see someone that helps out with this community festival, please say thank you! As essentially a completely volunteer-run event this year, these people give SO much of their time and energy to putting this thing together. There will be hick-ups - as with any large-scale event - but I guarantee you these volunteers will smile through it all!

Until next time,

Frances

I Scream, You Scream…

…We all scream for ice cream!  Yep, the old rhyme comes true as we head for the UNL Dairy Store on East Campus for the GOLincolnGO April membership luncheon on Thursday, April 21st from 11:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The UNL Dairy Store or Varsity Dairy, as it was once called, has been selling dairy products since 1917. If you brought your own cup to the store in the late 1920’s a nickel would buy all the milk you could drink.

We can’t match that deal, but join us as we enjoy lunch (ice cream included!) and learn more about the Dairy Store’s rich history.

Stopping at the Dairy Store has become a tradition in many families, as well as giving their cheese and meat Gift Boxes at Christmas time. The original East Campus location, as well as the newer location in the Union Building on Main Campus, offers a rotation of daily lunch specials and a constantly changing variety of ice cream made in their own dairy plant on East Campus. The Dairy Plant, now a part of The Food Processing Center, assists food processing businesses in Nebraska, provides experience for Food Science and related students and facilitates research projects involving dairy products.

Please register and pre-pay for the luncheon by April 18th at 5 p.m.
For more information and to register, go to: http://www.golincolngo.com/events/index.html?topic=detail&type=s&ei=204&PHPSESSID=9aee20b1ab81bd61ef326ad4242402b2

See you there — and watch out for brain freezes!
