Grimm asked Doug Harder to start the song. Doug
started it and failed to finish it on time. Grimm then
asked the wall to start the pledge. It did.
Then, after looking and looking for our man ofGod, he asked Harder to lead us in prayer. He
did—short and sincere. After a nice lunch of roast
beef, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans and lemon
candy-cake. Bob Stein solicited golfers to participate in
Southwest Sertoma Club’s big golf event on July 14th at
Pinehurst . It starts with a buffet lunch, golf,
prizes, silent auction and an elegant sit-down dinner. Bob
needs 4 golfers which the club will pay all but $50 of the
cost. Four additional guests may attend the dinner for
$35 each. Bob is oversubscribed now and there will be a
drawing later. Table 1 took a larger than usual hit
today. Miley to Randy Smith for revolving in the
chow-line to preserve his place. This was upped to $.50 for
returning to Table 1 without a proper vote. Smith
fined Fry for unintelligible mumbling. Mason proposed
$.25 to all of Table one for being so “close.”
Bezjak fined Rich
for dragging his grandson to lunch and exposing him to
Arapahoe's motleys. Please note that Nicky had roast
beef seconds. Magee fined Miley for “co-circling.”
John Pifer has 26 Rockies
tickets for the Marlins game on June 19th. (Tuesday
evening.) He says they are excellent seats at $31 each. See
Pifer — should be a fun outing. Take a guest, if you like.
Bezjak reported that E-Team deposited $5290 and 90 in
attendance. There is now $702 in the Progressive Pot.
There was a lot of “sports talk” about the Broncos,
Avalanche, and Rockies
season tickets— relegated to “committee work.”
There was also a lot of slow talking and stalling as there
was obviously no program in the works. We had fun,

Jacobus declares he was born in 1936, noting that he has
lived during parts of 8 decades and is not yet 70. He was
born in Grande Rapids, MI, moved to Chillicothe,
where he lived from 1939 until 1953, when he and his family
move to CO, settling in CampSherman,
a WW1 military facility. He attended grades 1–11 in Ohio
and graduated from Sheridan HS, his only school still
standing. A series of muddy creeks flowing into a
tributary of the Ohio
is his only claim to major waterways.His first job was in a green house from which he was
let him drive the fire engine around the park until he
backed it into the firehouse. No more rides—fired
from a $.70/hr job. Ric attended college in Greeley
where he obtained a degree in FUN. Real work started
an 11 year stretch with an insurance company followed by
teaching elementary school 1 year and then he worked for Van
Gilder Insurance Co. for 25 years. He has been married
to Bonnie 41 years, this summer, a union which has produced
2 children Rod (38) and Jill (36) and 1 grandchild, Cole
(2). His longtime friend Doug Harder brought him into
Sertoma in July 1974. He moved through the chairs to
President and became district Governor in 1982 where he
advised one Club to get to work or lose their charter.
Sure enough, they lost it. He poked fun at Pat McKim
with a poster gift of a confused rooster and he returned a
roll of genuine special TP to Orian Hunter, given to him
years ago. Other were offered a box full of Van Gilder
pens and stuff. Mike Magee won the $5 draw, after many
Harder, program chair of the day, sat glumly through Ric’s
bio sketch and finally laughed at Ric’s story about Bonnie
and Caroline. Bonnie dated Doug for a while and
Caroline dated Ric for a while. How’s that for
confused roosters? All together as good as a program.

2003, June 14th marks the 226th birthday of the U.S. Flag.
In 1777, the Continental Congress adopted the Stars and
Stripes pattern for the national flag.
This would follow almost one year after the Declaration
of Independence and more than a decade before the U.S.
Constitution was finalized.
Flag Day was first celebrated in 1877, the centennial of the
U.S. flag's existence.
After that many citizens and organizations advocated
the adoption of a national day
of commemoration for the U.S. Flag.
It was not until 1949, that President Harry Truman signed
Flag Day a day of national observance.
