Join us for our 2022 Northeast Kansans for Nebraska Picnic

  • St. David’s Parish Hall
  • 17th Street & Gage Avenue
  • Topeka, Kansas
  • Saturday, July 30, 2022
  • 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

You don’t need to bring anything but your Husker spirit.  We will provide Fairbury (Stadium) hot dogs, hamburgers and non-adult and adult drinks (Courtesy of Fleming Place Wine & Spirits).  Reser’s Fine Foods will be providing sides such as potato salad, baked beans, etc. Runza Restaurant in Lawrence will provide Runzas, and Hooters of Topeka wings.  The chapter will provide deserts this year too, so with all these items provided you don’t need to bring anything.

Northeast Kansans for Nebraska chapter members and their family are free.  Non-members will be asked to make a small donation to attend.  Please let us know in advance if you’re planning on attending.

Our virtual speaker this year is Jessica Coody, Husker Sports Nightly co-host and Husker Radio contributor. Coody came to Nebraska after spending the last nine seasons with The University of Oklahoma Athletics department where she served as a sideline/digital reporter, television/radio host, play-by-play announcer, and feature producer. 

“I could not be more excited for this next step in my career and to be a part of the Husker Radio Network team,” Coody said. “Athletics and storytelling have been part of my life since I was six years old, I can’t wait to tell the stories of the Nebraska student athletes and coaches.”

We will auction Husker memorabilia with proceeds going to our scholarship fund including several Husker sports autographed items.  Invite a friend and come and join in with other Husker fans in the area as we get ready for the 2022 football season.  We will also honor our chapter’s UNL scholarship recipients and draw for the prizes for those who participated in the “Road to Nebraska” fund raising scholarship program.

Our members will be renewing their family membership at this time of year.  If you have not already done so, we would appreciate it if you would join, or rejoin our chapter at this time.  Please fill out the form located on our website and send it in in advance, or bring it with you to speed things up at the registration table.
