2022 District Entertainment

Bob Mayber, District Governor 2021-2022 (North Platte Noon Rotary Club)

Adam White (Lincoln, NE) WOWed the audience with his hysterical, family-friendly comedy magic.  Using audience participation and sleight of hand Adam left the audience amazed.  

“WHAT?? How the heck did he do that?”

Our celebration was made twice as FUN by the guest duo.

First up,  entertainment was provided by magician Adam White.  Adam performed “close hands card tricks” that boggled the minds while guests enjoyed lunch.  Adam followed up with several illusions from his “box of tricks.” The final act of “trickeration” was simply amazing!

The illusion began with Adam exclaiming he would turn a twenty into “one-hundred.” Asking if anyone had a twenty-dollar bill, Brooke Robertson (Ogallala) volunteered her crisp bill. Then with a “sharpie” marker Brooke wrote her name across the face of the note.  Adam folded the bill 4-5 times into a small square, then as quickly unfolded “twenty” to reveal a crisp one-dollar bill.  The big reveal of Brooke’s twenty would come after Adam performed several other magic tricks.

In his big reveal, Adam removed a lemon from a bag that was held the entire performance by Deb McCaslin’s grandson.  When Adam cut open the seemingly pristine fresh lemon, Brooke’s twenty with her name written on it’s face, was in the center of the lemon folded in the same small square.

With family roots deep in Nebraska soil, Van spoke on building relationships and providing service to others.  Making a mention (more than once) about being a “Rotarian at heart”, Van told everyone how much he “loved” talking with Rotarians.  

“We all have a service heart, and that is what Rotary is all about.”

Van mentioned that if you wanted something done, you were going to have to do it yourself.  

Recalling his “football days” at University of Nebraska Omaha, told the story of self-actualization.  Tell yourself enough that you will succeed, how success looks, and you will accomplish your goals.  He told his teammates that he would intercept a pass and run it back for a touchdown.  His teammates laughed at him and said he would need to get off the bench and in the game first. Well, Van did it! In the spring Red-White game. Haha, the joke was on them.
