For the past several years, Retirees Group has celebrated the Holiday Season by lunching at a locally owned restaurant. This year, Retirees Group will meet at Omaha Rockets Kanteen, Tuesday, December 13th at 12:30. Omaha Rockets Kanteen is located in the Lake Point Center at 24th and Lake and is described as a “healthy soul food eatery with a Negro Leagues Baseball theme and a community empowerment thrust.” The restaurant, whose tagline is “Enjoy the food, digest the history”, is named after a barnstorming semipro, independent all-black town team, the Omaha Rockets. Parking is available in a lot at 25th and Lake or on the street.
The owners have asked that we make our menu selections prior to our lunch; please view their menu atomaharocketskanteen.com. To reserve your place at the luncheon, rsvp with your name(s) and menu selection(s) to Carol Johnson at retirees@ 2Uomaha.org on or before Friday, December 11th. Please also let us know if you would like to carpool from the church that morning.
You are not required to be retired to attend! Join us on the second Tuesday of each month for fun, socialization and learning.
