Sertoman of the Day

Bill Worth  
 
“Mr. Sertoma,” born in 1932, spent some time growing up in the Washington Park area, attended North High School, and Colorado A&M in Fort Collins.  From A&M, he earned his BS in Mechanical Engineering.  He served in the Army in El Paso, Texas and Huntsville, Alabama.  Following his stint in the Army, he went to work for Rogers Publishing on South Bannock Street.

He has been married to Carol for forty-five years.  They have four sons and five grandchildren.  

He joined the Club in October, 1962.  He was inducted by then-President Steve Bolyard.  After all these years, Bill showed that his Certificate of Membership was never signed by then-Secretary Bill Parchen.  Parchen dutifully, if somewhat late, signed the document to make Worth an authentic member of this club.

We are fortunate to have Bill Worth in our club.  He has done much for Service to Mankind.  Thanks Bill for all you do.  The $5 went to Rich Carlson.   

Program

Keith Schrum, the Associate Curator of Manuscripts of the Colorado History Museum presented and excellent program of letters from Colorado’s history.  The letters brought to life part of the individual history of Colorado.  There were from a gold prospector in Central City in 1861 to his wife back in Illinois.  Another set of letters was from William Jackson Palmer, the founder of the Rio Grand Rail Road, in 1870 to his prospective wife.  There were letters written by two unrequited suitors of Baby Doe Tabor.  The final set of letters were written in 1944 from a bomb crew of the Eleanor II, a B-17 to his mother here in Denver.  A touching letter was read from the son to his mother for Mother’s Day 1944.  Three weeks after the letter, his plane was shot down—but he was rescued from the English Channel.  One month later he was flying over Normandy.  Following the war, he returned to the Denver area, earned his medical degree, and worked in the area as a radiologist until he retired.  An excellent program.
