Our new Greater Nebraska headquarters is up and running, and we’re ready to party! Civic Nebraska will celebrate the opening of our new Grand Island headquarters at 203 N. Locust St. with an open house from 4 to 6 p.m. Feb. 7.
The event will include comments from Adam Morfeld, our executive director and founder, at approximately 5 p.m. Visitors can enjoy drinks and snacks and are welcome to share their ideas on an interactive display about successful communities.
The office, located in Grand Island’s Railside District, is the center of Civic Nebraska’s service in Greater Nebraska, including rural civic engagement, voter education, and election protection initiatives.
We chose Grand Island in part because of the city’s history of civic involvement, which includes being honored with the All-America City Award by the National Civic League three times. The Railside area’s mix of history and modern energy also fits with Civic Nebraska’s focus on strengthening community vitality across the state.
The Nebraska Civic Engagement Table – a separate organization that works with dozens of member nonprofits to build an engaged Nebraska –will have office space at the site; Table affiliates and other community groups will use the office for meeting space. And, Civic Nebraska will partner with area schools to display student art and other community-centered work.
See you Friday!
