Pot of Gold- Dick Enslow 

        Handshake Prize - None


   Song - Ballew     Pledge - Hopeless        Invocation- Rev. Bill

Mike Ballew got a noisy crowd to sing a version of the song, somebody started 3 or 4 pledges and Rev. Bill commanded reverence as he thanked the Lord for our food.  As Elizabeth and Victoria were still serving, Parchen announced a Silent Auction (see  announcements) which prompted Harder to comment that Mc Kim probably wouldn't go because he couldn't get a date with a third grader.  President Grimm could not grasp the humor and was fined for displaying his hearing problem.  Hunter was then fined for suggesting that Masias could dress in feminine attire and be Mc Kim's date. Dean Hiss asked participation in the Mexican Lunch/Broncos Football Game Event (see Announcements) .  Hunter, self elected spokesman for "The Cool Table", and exposing his newly found use of English, commented that Hispanic should be substituted for Mexican. Bezjak promptly fined said Table for thinking they were smart.  Somewhere in there, Mason was fined for not knowing fish and Grimm was fined for not knowing the difference between a mammal and a fish.  Parchen was fined for some minor abuse and whined he could pay, if the Sgt. at Arms could change a $50 bill. Someone fined Table 1 for feeling neglected.  B-Team has Bingo next week and A-Team had a good report for last night's efforts...a $7400 deposit.

                                       SERTOMAN OF THE DAY

President Grimm introduced John Hogge, who opened his biography with,  "I was originally born in Salt Lake City... the 5th son of..."  He has spent the last 23 years in metro Denver attending Elementary / Middle School at Eculid and graduating from Arapahoe High School.  From there he attended the UC School of Pharmacy and joined the Army Reserve at Fitzsimmons Army Hospital. While doing his mandatory "River" scenario, his brother Bob reminded him that SLC had an intermittent stream that might qualify as a river [in a rainstorm] near his birthplace.  Much discussion later, and all agree that many small streams feed the Great Salt Lake.  Perhaps a salt lake is better than no water at all.  John is married and proudly boasts a 10 year old daughter he shares with her mother.  He is Pharmacy Mgr. at Littleton Adventist Hospital and naturally he was sponsored by Dale Hand. John is in his 3rd year as a Sertoman and our present Sgt. at Arms.  Tim Pollak won John's $5.


Dave Miley introduced Gale Loeffler, Arapahoe County Cooperative Extension Agent.  Ms. Loeffler summarized the origins of the Extension Service concept as derived from the Land Grant University system created in 1918.  The Extension Service is funded by Federal, State and County Funds and provides educational materials and programs including: Consumer and Family areas of nutrition, health, safety and child development, Natural Resources and Agriculture covering land use planning, natural resource planning and management, livestock and wildlife, small acreage workshops, 4-H Youth Program  covers public speaking, record keeping, teamwork and problem solving, Arapahoe County Child Care Food Program, helps children receive nutrition they need for growth, learning readiness while they are in childcare settings, Horticulture through the Master Gardener Program designed as a volunteer outreach training program covering the complete horticulture insect and plant disease area,  Food Stamp Nutritional Education Program coordinates nutrition classes for adults with limited incomes and pregnant and parenting teens, Commodity Food Program oversees The Emergency Food Assistance Program (USDA) which supplies nutritious foods to 3000 individuals monthly through 12 food banks.  Ms. Loeffler's program was well presented and informative.  Arapahoe Sertoma thanks her.
