At 7:30 am on Thursday, October 12, 2017, several dozen Chamber members gathered at Outlook Nebraska for “Coffee & Contacts”, the popular, long-running Chamber morning networking event. As everyone assembled over fresh fruit, mini-muffins, sweet donut holes, fruit juice and, of course, COFFEE, we learned about the mission of Outlook Nebraska. Outlook Nebraska, 4125 S 72nd St., intends to positively impact everyone who is blind or visually impaired, and is making a daily difference in many, many lives.
Greater Omaha Chamber President and CEO David Brown greeted us all and wished us a good morning. When we were a bit weak in our initial response, David smiled, repeated his enthusiastic greeting, and got the hearty, robust “Good Morning” he was looking for, and we were under way.
David introduced a brief clip highlighting various success stories of visually-handicapped people finding assistance, training, and employment through Outlook Nebraska. Outlook Nebraska’s own Rachel then took the mic and told attendees a bit of her story and, with David, drew a few prize winners from the collected business cards. Many attendees toured the facility, and we all were impressed by Outlook Nebraska, their mission and their people.
Midwest Sound & Lighting is a proud partner with the Chamber and provided crystal-clear, feedback-free sound reinforcement using a pair of 1KW QSC K-12 speakers, an Allen & Heath mixer, and Shure wireless microphones. We congratulate Outlook Nebraska and look forward to the next Chamber networking event.
Peace, love, out-
