Restore the Good Life Potluck Dinner
Restore the Good Life Volunteer Potluck Dinner…August 21 (Sat) 4pm – whenever
Lancaster county – Cass county – Otoe county and Surrounding Areas
I will be on the road everyday through the weekend and next week. It will culminate at Grand Island on August 20. On August 21st I will be at “Restore the Good Life” headquarters near the intersection of Lancaster, Cass, and Otoe counties.
ALL Eastern Nebraska “Restore the Good Life” volunteers, leaders, and special teams are invited and encouraged to come. Supportive guests and visitors are invited as well. Several individuals will be speaking. Guests should feel free to hang around and mingle, or wander down to the goose pond and see what is up there.
After dinner is a big planning session for the initiatives and an explanation of how “Restore the Good Life” is organized. We will be discussing the 27 different initiative districts that I will have set up throughout Nebraska, who is in charge of them, and what areas we still need volunteer leaders.
For team leaders who travel a long distance and need to stay, there are 4 bedrooms. I plan on spending another day (Sunday) working on the initial filming of our video series (Thank you Kelli Brady and her audio-visual production team).
Bring a notebook and pen, pretend as if you are in class and taking notes.
For the potluck, just normal food, a little bit of main dish type of things, salads, etc.
It is good if everyone could bring 1 liter of some type of drink, bottled water, tea, pop, whatever.
It is a big yard sloping down to the pond, bring a picnic blanket that you can lounge on OR lawn chairs if you prefer. Instruct any children you bring that they may slowly walk up to any animals, but animals cannot be chased.
I can hold hundreds in the yard, and parking will be in the not-yet planted orchard area. For those who want to help organize and set things up, come about 2:30- 3:00. Others show up at 4 pm with dinner starting around 4:30.

P.S. The location is 2.1 miles due east of Woodland Hills Golf Course in Lincoln Nebraska on the South Side of the Road. If a GPS tries to have you drive along miles of dirt road, ignore that. It is only about 1.5 miles of dirt road off the highway that runs from Eagle to Palmyra Nebraska.
We were at your presentation in Nebraska City the other night. We are in education and have a related question for you.
Given your proposed initiative to eliminate the NdE and establish your own education office under the governor, how would you go about dealing with all of the laws and regulations regarding testing and standards that are already established as law in the state?
