Come to an informative training this Saturday, June 14th from 1:00 to 3:00 PM at Augustana Lutheran Church (3647 Lafayette Ave–2 blocks north of Cuming)

Primary Trainer on WIN: Mark Intermill, Executive Director, AARP-Nebraska
AARP-Nebraska is a lead organization on this issue and Mark is one of the most informed people in the State.  Half of the AARP’s members are between 50-65.

We will be targeting our presentations to OTOC member and affiliate organizations but once you are trained you can  reach out to anyone willing to listen.
Environmental Sustainability
We will also have representatives of the OTOC Environmental Action team with us and they will share information about the critical decisions OPPD will be making in the next few months about how they generate electricity. See the June 9 World Herald article  “Omaha Public Power District begins to map plan for powering next 20 years”  for more information about this critical decision and  the focus of OTOC’s work on this issue:
How you can use this training 
You can choose to participate in one or both of the training sessions  on Saturday, June 14th and you can choose to organize either or both of these sessions for your congregation or organization.
Once we have the trainers in place for both WIN & Environment we will see who has natural relationships with our member and other community organizations and begin scheduling training sessions this Summer and Fall.  Please contact thet OTOC office or  Mark Hoeger at mhoeger@aol.com for any questions you might have.
