The Avenue of Flags is a worthwhile project. Each Veteran’s flag is displayed with their name on the binding of the flag and put in its special place of honor each holiday including Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Veteran’s Day. Many visitors and locals have commented on what a wonderful view it is to see them flying.

      Mid Nebraska Individual Services (MNIS) is a community based alternative for people with developmental disabilities. Community based services came about as the result legislation in the late 60’s mandating that people in the state institutes have community alternatives where they could learn skills that would enable them to live and work in their home communities – thus the birth of places like MNIS. MNIS incorporated in October 1970. The corporation covers 22 counties in south central Nebraska, has Adult Developmental Centers and homes in 8 communities within those counties. We serve approximately 450 people. In Ord, we serve 27 individuals. We teach such things as personal hygiene skills, community access, leisure time/recreational skills, communication skills, home management, socialization, money management, academic skills, health maintenance, motor skills and employment skills. Teaching occurs in home, at work sites or in our adult developmental center commonly referred to as the workshop.

    • Volunteer Opportunities
      There are several ways to volunteer in the local program.  The chapter welcomes people who would like to investigate serving as a board member, or volunteering as a mentor and/or assisting with current projects and activities.  Also, each year the chapter sponsors an annual TeamMates Walkathon to celebrate all matches and raise money to support all local activities.

    • About Our Organization
      Several years ago, a group of men, some of them veterans, had a vision of seeing a large flag flying over the City of Ord. The group formed a committee and identified a good location for such a flag. They then began raising the necessary funds. In 2005, a 150 foot flag pole was erected and the first flag (30 x 60 ft.) was raised. The committee continues to have fundraising activities annually so new flags can be purchased. The committee volunteers their time to help with fundraising and to raise and lower the flag. Due to the size of the flag, this is not an easy task. Since the flag is located in the Ord City Park, the Flagpole Committee formed a partnership with the City of Ord. The City of Ord established a separate account for this project and all donations and expenditures are run through this account.  The funds are audited on an annual basis.
    • Volunteer Opportunities
      The committee encourages people to become involved in their annual poker run that is held every June. Volunteers are also utilized to put up and take down flags.

The lodge is positioned to deliver meaningful community services to the area. They support food banks, shelters, veterans and victims of natural disasters. The members, through volunteering, supplement the social services provided by overburdened government agencies, serving children, the elderly, veterans, the underprivileged and others who need help. They recycle, volunteer at local senior centers, contribute to deceased members memorials, contribute to local food pantries, send contributions to local fire departments, hold an annual Memorial Day service (the Sunday before Memorial Day at the National Cemetery), honor the veterans that attend and serve lunch to all those who attend. During an annual craft fair, they give away two bicycles to children who attend. National Hall is available for family reunions, receptions and dances. Belonging to the lodge can provide a social outlet as well as the opportunity to give back to the community.
