Day in Review:  A fine day with 32 SERTOMAN's in attendance.  A box lunch with your choice of ham or ham sandwich with mustard and mayonnaise condiments served from little plastic bags.  Tomatoes and onions toped off the buffet style addition to the sandwich.  The mood of the members was ranked by this reporter as B- on the rancor meter.

Col. Hubbard program.  Next years Regional Convention will be hosted by the Plate Canyon Club at the Hilton South.  Registration will be $145.  The dates are April 21-23.  Dale Hand was recruiting help for the "Base Ball Camp," now in progress.
Fines: Table #2 for disruption beyond acceptable standards.  Jason Hand for dishonor to his father on the Thursday before Father's Day.  Phil Grim for general principals.  Pres. Tim, customary.  Dick Enslow for something?                                                                                                       

Sertoman of the Day

Bob Lutes, born and raised in Nebraska .  Enlisted in the US Army and began his military career at Ft. Loan on November 20, 1942 .  From there he went to San Antonio Texas , then on to Norfolk Virginia.  On his way to Italy his ship was delayed because of an oil leak.  After his arrival in Italy he lived out of a tent while fighting the War.  While there, he saw Mt. Vesuvius and Pope Pious 12th.  After the War he returned through Morocco and South Africa before finally arriving in Charleston South Carolina .  Bob was brought into the Club by the late Jim Livesay and Bill Holthaus approximately 45 years ago.  Bob and his lovely wife Eleanor have been married for 62 years.  Congratulations to one of the good guys, Bob Lutes. 

Program

Rick Jacobus brought to us Kimberly Langston, from the Swedish Medical Center .  Kimberly informed us about the "Shots For Tots" program.  SFT is a program designed to insure that all kids in Colorado get the immunization shots they need.  Colorado ranks low (67%) in the percentage of children getting immunization protection.  This is because of high cost, large number of kids not on record, and families without medical insurance.  SFT offers free immunization clinics starting in July on every third Saturday of the month from 10:00am . to 1:00pm .  Locations will be announced and rotated from month to month.  The Tri County Health Department is involved with this program.  Their goal is to immunize 100 kids per month.  Three shots per child costs $150,000 per year.  For reference, Kimberly can be reached at 303-788-4630.  Thank you Rick for a fine program.
