‘Pass the Rosy Wine’ (Charles Dickens)
A scant 14 days before the Omaha Bar Association was set to hold its annual Wine and Beer Tasting event, they learned that their venue was closing. Executive Director Dave Sommers sprang into action and secured a new venue – Noah’s Event Venue; bought a wide variety of wine and beer; and, with co-sponsor Lynda Henningsen of The Daily Record, secured the volunteer efforts of members of the Omaha Legal Professionals Association (OLPA) to cater the hors d’oeuvres. And all this for a record turnout of more than 300 – a 40 percent increase! And, well, don’t you love it when a plan comes together? The evening was a huge success, with the venue able to accommodate the large crowd with ease. While they are not sure where it will be held next year, this year’s spot was deemed an unqualified success.
Another encouraging sign was the number of young members who attended, boding well for the future of the organization. They didn’t run out of wine or food, but they did run out of time. As in Cinderella’s tale, the clock struck 12 (9 actually) and the hall was closed for the night. The event is the OBA’s thank-you to its members for their support throughout the year.
