History of Our Club
The Collector's Club, now known as the Nebraska Spirit of 56ers began in Lincoln, Nebraska, on Tuesday, March 14, 1995.  That first meeting took place at Barb's Hallmark Store located at 66th & O Streets.  A total of 40 persons were present at this organizational meeting to express interests in forming a club that was centered around the villages and accessories produced by Department 56. 
A second meeting, on April 25, 1995, officers for the newly-formed club were elected.  This meeting, held at Barb's Hallmark at 48th & Leighton, also focused on topics such at by-laws of the constitution and membership dues.  It was decided that yearly dues would be $15 for single membership, and $20 for couples.  At this time, no name or logo for the club had yet been chosen, and the selection of those was deferred to the next meeting.
