Omaha Film Festival volunteer party, 04-05-07

We held our volunteer appreciation evening at Dave & Busters Thursday night and a good time was had by all. It was fantastic seeing so many of the volunteers again, a month after the festival. I loaded up around 300 photos on a laptop and projected a slideshow all night on the big screen in our party room (thanks to Mark and Julie for taking so many pictures during the festival). We had close to fifty people come out and we were treated to a full buffet of food and $10 game cards. After some socializing and some good eating, Jeremy, Jason and I got up and personally thanked everyone for coming and for their participation this year at the festival. We also made some announcements about next year’s festival and had a small Q&A. After that, I had everyone in the room introduce themselves, state how they heard about the festival, if they’d been to other festivals, and to give a funny or interesting story or memory from the festival. It took around 45 minutes to get to everyone, but it was totally worth it and it was great having a chance to hear from everyone that helped. It’s always fun to hear some of the stories and see how the festival affects everyone in a different way.

The enthusiasm and passion of our volunteers helps us press on to do bigger and greater things in upcoming years. This year was fantastic and we’re only going to get better.

Huge thanks to everyone at Dave & Busters for the beautiful room, giving us incredible service and for throwing us a fantastic party. We will see you again.
