State Parties – December 2014


I am originally from Michigan and am curious if there are any other Michigan people here in Sun Lakes who might like to get together for a meet and greet. If you are, please give me a call and maybe we can plan a fun event. My name is Pearl and my phone number is 480-305-0286.


Gary Vacin

Sun Lakes Nebraskans who have received invitations to the annual Nebraska State Dinner are urged to sign up for the event by January 1, 2015. The event, featuring former Nebraska football coach Tom Osborne, will have limited seating. After January 1, reservations will be open to Phoenix Metropolitan Nebraska friends and supporters.

The event, scheduled for Saturday, February 28 at the Oakwood Country Club, will begin with a pre-dinner reception cocktail party beginning at 4:30 p.m. at the Oakwood Poolside Café. A no-host bar will follow the cocktail party from 5:30-6:30 p.m. followed by the dinner. Proceeds from the reception will go to Osborne’s TeamMates Mentoring Program.

Tickets for the dinner are $45 per person or $150 for cocktail party including dinner.

Osborne was head coach at Nebraska for 25 years (1973-1997). He led Nebraska to National championships in 1994, 1995 and 1997. He also served as Nebraska Athletic Director and was elected to three terms as a U.S. representative from the Nebraska Third Congressional District. He also was selected to serve on the 2014 NCAA Championship selection committee.
