CHANGES AHEAD FOR RC&D
Jocelyn is originally from South Sioux City, NE. She graduated from Morningside College in Sioux City, IA, in May of 2017 with degrees in English and Religious Studies. Following graduation she moved to Lincoln, NE, to serve as a Program Specialist with Lead Up, a nonprofit organization serving high-school students in Lincoln. She now resides in Sioux City, IA, with her husband and is very eager to begin her work with Northeast Nebraska RC&D.
Recently the RC&D held their annual meeting at Serendipity Restaurant in Plainview. New officers for 2019 are Jim Rabe, President, Winside; Gary Howey, Vice-President, Hartington; Judy Rasmussen, Secretary, Plainview; and Justin D. Doerr, Treasurer, Plainview. Judy Rasmussen received the Outstanding Council Member award. Iris Dutton of Ponca was given a Special Effort award for the work she did on the 25th Anniversary Celebration. The Council recognized Mark Newman with a Farmers Market award as he’s provided live music during the Wednesday markets for the past two years. Janet Gill received a 13-year service award and Donna Christiansen was recognized for her willingness to help out at the office when needed.
During the December meeting long-time board member Dennis Wacker’s resignation was accepted with regret since he and his wife will be moving out of the area soon. The RC&D will again partner with North Central District Health Department on the distribution of radon test kits.
