Invocation- Rev. Bill
smaller than usual number of Sertomans gathered at noon today. Dave Miley picked out just the right key with which to start the song,
and our meeting got rolling. With less jostling in the buffet
line, everyone was sitting down to their bowl of chili, corn bread and
brownies when Phil Grimm started the meeting early (see explanation
below). Fines were scarce with only one, "pre-paid," to
Rich Carlson for subjecting his grand-son, Nic, to the motley
crew. Joe Dowdey announced the sign-up sheet for the Englewood
Chamber luncheon coming up on Nov. 15th. There is a $15 per person
fee with the club picking up $20.
Also, Heart of Hearts Gala on Nov. 23rd needs two more couples to
complete a table of ten, $100 per couple. Tim Pollak was called
upon for the King Soopers/Tony Meats coupon commercial. Pat McKim
gave an impassioned report on the plight of Bing C team. They were
just able to break even with 74 players they had last night, but only
four (4) members were there to work. Please get a substitute when
you can't make it. Bill Malone is willing to sub on short notice,
too. Norm Schillo won the $10 football pool, again. Phil
Grimm had sheets about Sertoma and suggested that everyone promote the
club by asking "Do you know what Sertoma is?" and then give
them the sheets to show what we do. He also announced a sign-up
sheet for Fall District Conference on Nov. 9th at the Sheraton-DUTCH.
It runs for the morning and includes a luncheon, all are invited to
Mexican / Hispanic Buffet
members, wives and their guests enjoyed watching and cheering on the
Bronco's victory over the New England Patriots Sunday afternoon.
The food was excellent an the camaraderie great.
It was just a bit difficult getting a wave going. Doc. Kelsall won
the $100 pool.
one Identified this week
Our speaker had another pressing engagement, so Phil Grimm, our
dictatorial president, started the meeting early. Program chairman
du jour, Dave Miley, introduced Nancy Peterson of the Englewood
Department of Safety Services to tell us about our local Police
Department. She began with an apology for being over
scheduled to attend a local elementary school where she'd be pm stage
with other law enforcement personnel from the DEA and air national guard
(including a helicopter landing) to make a big impression on those young
minds that law enforcement was not to be feared. She explained that the department of
Safety had several bureaus under the management of Chris Olsen, and that
the Police Bureau was divided in Patrol, Investigations Standards,
Impact Team, Traffic Unit and Parking enforcement. With
sixty-seven (67) officers it's a substantial department and has offices
spread throughout the community. Her office is on Broadway and
houses the Impact Team (public relations and community services).
In answers to audience questions she indicated that most problems come
from people traveling through the city. Community Watch programs
are especially helpful in preventing rimes with over 500 blocks of the
667 total having established programs. There is a Commander in
charge of Terrorist Strategies and Meth. Labs have been a problem as in
other Metro jurisdictions. Both of these problems are best handled
by increased vigilance so "know our neighbors and neighborhood, be
observant, and call and report anything suspicious," was a message
she repeated over and over again. Good update.
from Great Leaders
profession I am a soldier and take pride in that fact.
But I am prouder- infinitely prouder - to be a father.
A soldier destroys in order to build;
the father only builds never destroys.
The one has the potentiality of death;
the other embodies creation and life.
And while the hordes of death are mighty,
the battalions of life are mightier still.
It is my hope that my son, when I am gone,
will remember me not from the battle
but in the home repeating with him
our simple daily prayer,
"Our Father Who Art in Heaven."
