Friday Fun

Here’s a nice item for people in the Omaha/Council Bluffs area: “Word of Mouth Iowa” is a non-profit which focuses on providing dental care to poor families and individuals in the area. Dental care for the poor isn’t the sexiest of bandwagons, so word of mouth doesn’t get a whole lot of people lining up to donate money. So the Director, a Louisiana-native who has relocated to Iowa, has been throwing Mardi Gras balls for the past several years to raise funds, and word is that the food and festivities are the most authentic thing at least in this part of the country. This year, the director is also providing free tickets to some of Omaha’s Katrina evacuees as well- which, according to FEMA - was last numbered at 575.
