Fort Donelson Monument Status 

 

We are still waiting for the Secretary of State to appoint four members to the committee mandated by LB 850.  When LB 850 passed, the Governor signed it, but expressed concern that the Chair of the Government, Military and Veterans Affairs committee should not be a voting member of the Fort Donelson Monument committee, so LB 35 has been introduced this year to change that position to a nonvoting member.  LB 35 has been placed on Final Reading.

 

Smile Amazon

 

Amazon contacted the Round Table to report that someone had requested to make the Round Table his or her Smile Amazon charity.  Smile.amazon.com is an Amazon feature where the buyer selects a registered charity and then 0.5% of eligible purchases go to that charity.  The Civil War Round Table of Nebraska has now registered as a Smile Amazon charity, so those of you interested can buy Amazon goods and 0.5% of eligible purchases will go to the Round Table.  Here is a link you can use to go to Smile Amazon and select the Round Table as your charity:

Smile Amazon - CWRT

 

The Secretary-Treasurer would love to know who made this request of Amazon to proper thanks can be made.  If you get to the point where you have an item in your Amazon cart without going through smile.amazon.com (which has happened to your Secretary-Treasurer many times due to forgetting to go to the “smile” site), you can simply close the window and then log into smile.amazon.com, and the cart will be there with the items still there, and then the purchase will be a “smile” purchase.

 

Hope to see you on the 24th!
