Editor's Note

One of my favorite parts of this job is visiting you, hearing your stories, and being able to share them. However, planning stories for our 50th anniversary has had me thinking for three years.

The biggest questions on my mind were: How can we celebrate, remember, and commemorate 50 years of an organization that does so much? How do we write about our past, present, and future at the same time? What stories do we need to capture for our archives? Who could I interview?

For the newsletter, we have decided we will feature directors who focus on an area of work.

Starting with this issue, we’ll showcase stories on community, farming, lending services, and policy, while taking a look at how the work was started, how it has evolved into the present, and see what is in store for the future.

However, this is just part of our history. I would love to collect stories from you to share on our blog and to keep for the next 50 years. What work have you been interested in over the years? Did you work at the Center? Did you participate in one of our projects?

Tell us your Center story. Contact me at or 402.687.2100 ext. 1025.
