NO FLAG!!!   How did the prez get away without a fine for allowing that one.  Excellent attendance and lots of guests today.  It may have had something to do with the program.  Nick Morrone brought Steve Quint and Tom Young.
Pat McKim brought Dean Poindexter, Brent Hackett and PB Mark Gutel.
Doug Harder brought son Zack.  Bill Parchen introduced Bob Buckland of the LoDo club.  Steve Ellis, who needs no introduction, brought regards and poinsettias from the Jeffco club.  The fine pot did fairly well - the standard fine amount for table one went to 50 cents each (can we keep it up there?)  Did anyone look up and notice the new ceiling tiles before Rich Carlson mentioned them?  We had more than 40 members attending today.  Let's think about a new year's resolution to attend more often.  The Pot O Gold went to Dick Sorensen.

Congratulations to Us!
Fifty Years of Service

Today's SOD was our representative in LA (lower Alabama) Sam "Who" Anderson.  Sam is in town to share our 50th anniversary festivities.  He still maintains he was born on a kitchen table in north Denver.  After serving mankind Wyoming, Sam came to Denver to serve mankind as a member of the finest Sertoma club in the area, moving on from there to serve as Sertoma International President.  Several years ago Sam moved to Florida, and things haven't been the same since (they have been better).  Mary keeps Sam in line.  His kids are spread around the country.  He hardly mentioned his Navy service.  Please stop by every few years, Sam, it's always good to see you.  Sam promised Doug Harder $5 bucks as soon ad Mary gave him his allowance.  Seriously, Sam, it's good to see you.  

Today's Program was an attempt to help the members with their holiday shopping.  Orian Hunter (previously king) invited golfing partner Julie Halk to bring some friends and model a few fashions that could suggest gift or other ideas. Julie owns Ultra Legs Hosiery and Lingerie Outlet.  It was very nice of her to show us samples of her merchandise, and special thanks go to Brenda, Coleen, Connie and Dorene for assisting her.  Several members won gift items: McKim, Stein, Campbell, Jacobus, Miley, Grimm, Anderson, Lutes, Masias, Elmay and Buckland.  (The previous list is for informational purposes only- they may not wish to display their winnings).  Our thanks to Julie and friends for adding a bit of excitement to the meeting.
