This may be old news, but it's worth repeating: LB93 went
into effect of July 1, 2014. It allows you to renew your driver's
license and have the word "Veteran" imprinted on it (at no
extra cost). You first need to register with the NE Dept. of
Veterans Affairs. That can be done at
www.veterans.nebraska.gov and then click on the
button in the middle of the page "Veteran Registry".
You must register before you go to the DMV to renew your
license. Please share this information with other veterans
because it will allow you to receive veteran discounts at
Lowe's, Cabelas, and other establishments.

This workshop, led by championship fiddler and author, Deborah Greenblatt, is perfect for fiddlers who want to learn to play duets with other fiddlers.
