The Historic Bryant House was well represented at the Restore Nebraska Conference recently. Noretta Glup, Brenda McCarty, Sam McMullen and Bonnie Chatt attended the weekend conference on Saturday, March 2. It was held at the Fort Omaha campus of Metro Community College.

“We braved the cold weather and snow to hopefully do some networking and learn some new information to be helpful at the Bryant House,” Chatt said.

The conference started at 9 a.m. with a welcome and a presentation, then participants broke into three sessions. Each session offered six speakers on different topics making 18 presentations to choose from.

“We tried to go to different presentations so the information could be shared,” Chatt said. “At each session, we all came away with new ideas about a product or idea of something new we could do at the House.

“Needless to say, the conference was not a disappointment. Believe me, it was not a quiet ride home.”

The Christmas decorations are almost put away and staff is working to reset the house for its April opening. They are also putting up new displays to showcase some gems that have been in storage.

The first event of the season will be April 6 with Pat Pixley returning to give a class. More information about the class and where to purchase tickets will be announced in the near future.
