It was a beautiful day
in the neighborhood. Even after surgery, Miley can still
start a song. Fines were flying fast and furious for avariety of sins of commission as well as omission !
The Brothers Hogge, Ballew, and Table #1 bore the brunt of
quarter donations. It also appears that the golfing season
is well under way. There are many opportunities to hit
balls, so see Parchen or Harder or Buckland if you’re
interested in any of a variety oftee times. President Grimm was happy to report on the
Regional Convention held a week earlier. Kudos to Jon Hogge
for starting his Life Member program and coming in second in
the First Timers Contest. Arapahoe came in second for our
superior newsletters; Arapahoe also won the Club Excellence
award…! Mike Ballew will be making the rounds as our
District Governor year after next., Rick Campbell’s hard
work, which must have taken him hours and hours, neglecting
his work, locking himself away for days at a time, causing
him to go without food or sleep with only one goal in mind
— doing well on the scrapbook, was rewarded by a First
Place Honor! I’ll bet that Renee was really proud of Rick
as she watched him put that project together…! Thanks
of the Day
introduced as the Sertoman of the Day. Mr. Harder was
hatched in Huston, Texas, sixty-five years ago.
Interestingly enough, he has been married to Caroline for
the same number of years that he has been in the mortgage
banking business. This leads us to the conclusion that Doug
must have been told that he needed to be gainfully employed
if he was to continue his relationship with his wife. Doug
is the proud father of approximately four children: Zach,
Chris, Jennifer, and Michael. Doug joined Sertoma in 1966.
During his years in Sertoma, Doug has held every possible
office, including president twice! Doug gave a good
presentation, even though he believes that the Gulf of
Mexico is the river which ran through his home town. We were
all glad when Doug finished his presentation, but none more
happy with $5 than Norm Selby.
Harder, Program Chairman, introduced Donna
Mlinek, Animal Behavioral Manager
from the Denver Dumb Friends League. Donna, an English major
by training, was very informative regarding the growth and
changes underway at the Dumb Friends League, which was
founded in 1910, and now has three centers. The largest, at
Iliff and Quebec is being enlarged and remodeled. The Open
Admissions policy enables sixty-three animals per day to
benefit from one of the many Dumb Friends League programs
which include: Spay/Neuter; micro-chip; Behavior
modification; National Pets for Life; Pet Abuse prevention;
the Pet Caravan; Foster Care;and Grooming. In addition, the Dumb Friends League is
very active in lobbying and community awareness activities,
such as the “Pets are Welcome,” program. This program
works with pet owners and landlords to assure that where a
pet is welcomed into a home, all parties have a positive
experience. Once again, an excellent and informative program
from the good folks at the Dumb Friends League. Thanks!

and Coastguardsmen who lost their lives serving our nation.
We remember not only our compatriots, but all those brave
Americans from generations past whose legacy of service
