NEBRASKA PLANS STATE QUARTER LAUNCH CEREMONY FOR APRIL 7

According to a news release, "Gov. Dave Heineman announced
that the U.S. quarter-dollar commemorating Nebraska statehood
will be distributed for the first time in April. Nebraska's
quarter will feature a pioneer family traveling by covered
wagon and historic landmark Chimney Rock. The theme chosen
for the launch is 'Our Journey Continues.'

The Governor and First Lady Sally Ganem will be joined by
David Lebryk, acting director of the United States Mint for
the official launch on Friday, April 7 at a celebration
scheduled to be held at the Bob Devaney Sports Center in
Lincoln. Classrooms and school groups from across the state
are invited to the celebration, which will begin at 9:45 a.m.

In addition to the official launch ceremony on April 7, the
Governor will participate in celebrations scheduled to take
place at the University of Nebraska at Kearney's Foster Field
beginning at 12:15 p.m., and Five Rocks Amphitheatre in Gering
at 1:30 p.m. MT. A strike ceremony is being planned for March
at the United States Mint at Denver."

"John Munn, director of the Nebraska Department of Banking and
Finance and co-chair of the quarter launch committee, said,
'This is an exciting process that we hope will be inclusive,
educational and fun for all Nebraskans. It's also a great
opportunity to recognize those who worked to build a strong
foundation for our state many years ago.'
