Game and Parks program on target

Speaker: Aaron Herschberger, Nebraska Game and Parks 
Aaron Herschberger, outdoor education specialist with Nebraska Game and Parks, helps start archery programs in Nebraska schools. He said at least 260 school districts in the state have archery curriculum in grades 4-12. 
"It's amazing how many lives this little arrow can impact," he said. "Some of the biggest winners don't necessarily bring home the biggest trophies."
Herschberger said that most archery state records in Nebraska are held by middle school-girls. 
Game and Parks also organizes fishing programs for families. Many of the kids who participate have never been fishing. 
"I believe that youngsters need to get away from computers and organized this and organized that," said Mick Jensen, Rotary member and Nebraska Games and Parks commissioner.  
August Student of the Month
Rotary's Student of the Month for August is Whitney Aman, daughter of Craig and Karen Aman. She plans to attend Creighton University next fall to study business and English. 
Rotary fundraiser update
Rotarian Jim Nelson, whose band is playing at the fundraiser, said ticket sales will likely go on sale Dec. 1. Denise Dein and Mikki Mullally are working on decor for the event. The theme is "A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Rock 'n' Roll." Jim said they are finalizing a song list. 
Fever and Funkhouse will play after Jim's band. There will also be a silent auction. Eighteen tables have been sold. Every member is expected to sell at least four tickets. Tickets will tentatively be sold at Two Rivers Bank, Washington County Bank, Sid Dillon and Enterprise Publishing.
