SBA Nebraska District Director Retires
Glenn Davis, Small Business Administration (SBA) Nebraska District Director officially retired on January 2, 2007. Glen was a strong advocate for small business development in Nebraska and a good friend of REAP and the Center for Rural Affairs.

We are very appreciative of all the support from Glenn Davis over the years and wish him all the best as he retires. Glenn has been a strong voice for small businesses in Nebraska and will be greatly missed. Thank you Glenn!

Country Meadows Anniversary
Country Meadows owners Harriett and Dick McFeely are hosting a huge Celebration/Open House on April 29, 2007 to celebrate the 8th anniversary of Country Meadows and their own 25th wedding anniversary.

“We would like to personally greet and thank everyone who has helped us on this wonderful journey. Please join us on Sunday, April 29 from 1:00-4:00 p.m. at Country Meadows, 1205 E. 42nd St., Hastings Nebraska,” invite the McFeelys.

Update Moves to Quarterly Publication Schedule
The REAP Business Update is moving to a quarterly publication. Instead of posting the Update on a monthly basis, readers can now expect four issues a year plus the Rural Enterprise Reporter.

Staff made the decision to move to a quarterly publication in response to REAP member’s busy schedules and our desire to use resources effectively. You won’t miss out on important news – a postcard or letter will keep you informed if needed between our newsletters.

The Center for Rural Affairs Newsletter is still published on a monthly basis. REAP news will be carried in the Center's newsletter as well, so be sure and check it for the latest on rural issues.

If you have questions or comments about this change, please contact Jeff Reynolds, REAP Program Director, at 402.656.3091 or
