This Week In Review

A goodly attendance, a hearty south of the border feast, fun-filled fellowship, a timely topic for discussion, and brownies for dessert - what more could you want? Guests Steinmann and Duncan, applicants in process, were joined by Larry Sage of the Centennial Airport club, who offered an opportunity to join CAA at a Beer Tasting next Saturday the 14th. ($30 at the door).  Good to see Mike Magee back at the table following his rather serious tummy trouble.  The D team managed to make a pretty fair profit on Wed the 4th even though the crowd was only 76 and the workers only 7.  Dick Sorensen asked that we help the LoDo club with their Baseball Camp on June 19-21.  They need a variety of efforts from coaching to feeding to cleanup to ??.  Sign up on the sign up sheet or talk to Dick.  Bob Buckland asked for individual support of the June 26 ALS Association’s ‘Sunset in the Park’.  ALS = Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis = Lou Gehrig's Disease.  For info talk to Bob.  There was today a motion that Table 1 not be fined.  The group quickly noted the potential long term impact and reversed the motion.  The Arapahoe Golf Outing last Monday brought kudos to Grimm, Pifer and Mason for their exceptional athletic skill or there unique math skill.  It was not clear which. Cash rewards went to (can’t remember) and to G Hannes. 
Sertoman of the Day

The Reverend Bill Kohlmeier, a native of Pennsylvania, traced his ‘river roots’ all the way to the Atlantic by way of M_ _ _ _  Creek, the Delaware River, the Chesapeake Canal, Chesapeake Bay, etc. Graduated high school in New York, he served 3 years plus in the navy, attended college on the GI bill, taught school in Cleveland for 10 years.  Moving on to Seminary, Bill served churches in the midwest before coming to Christ Lutheran in Englewood.  Technically retired, Bill still serves until a replacement is found.  Married to Jacklyn for 45 years - three sons, and 6 grandkids.  Brought to Arapahoe by Doug Harder in ‘99.  Bill, our official club chaplain, is a real positive addition to the club.  A willing worker, Bill has served on the board, and is always available when  needed.  Thanks Bill.


Mary Dounay and Gene Turnbull, President and Secretary, respectively, of the Englewood School Board.  They spoke to the May 23rd ‘incident’, during which water balloons were throw.  They indicated that the actual contents of the balloons is still unclear, but even if it was beer, as claimed by some, that would violate the no alcohol rules. All graduating students had just signed an agreement that indicated they agreed to no improper acts, and that they understood any possible repercussions.  Mary and Gene said that support for the Principal’s actions had been received from within and without the district.  In a straw vote, Arapahoe members also showed solid support for the action taken.  Our special thanks to Mary and Gene for being with us and sharing the thoughts and actions of the board with us.  And thanks for being here on short notice.

Thoughts to Ponder               

Have you ever thought about what we say?   Well, think about . . .

 ...why doesn’t ‘Buick’ rhyme with ‘quick’?  
...if a vegetarian eats vegetables,
what does a humanitarian eat?  
...if teachers taught, why didn’t preachers praught?  
...why is there neither apple nor pine in pineapple?  
...if the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn’t the plural of  booth beeth?  
...and how is it we have noses
that run and feet that smell?
