Recently our club president, Roger Lindstrom* (owner of Moon Valley Grill) was contacted by members of a Huskers-oriented non-profit organization called “Nebraska Greats Foundation.” The are coming to Phoenix and one of their stops will be to have a Meet ‘n’ Greet with our members at Moon Valley Grill on September 6th at 5:30 p.m. Eric Crouch, Jerry Murtaugh, Bruce Mathison, and some other former players will be there to visit, sign autographs, take pictures and promote awareness of their foundation. “Nebraska Greats Foundation provides financial assistance to former Nebraska collegiate athletes who, as a result of a medical challenge, have exhausted both their insurance and personal resources.”
Our Board talked it over and felt their mission is a worthy one, and voted to award them a donation of $1000, which was presented to Bruce Mathison at our annual membership meeting Saturday, August 5. Now that’s Nebraska spirit!
*Maybe some of our younger members don’t know that Roger Lindstrom played wingback at UNL during 1983-1985
