to our new skipper Joe Dowdey.
Let’s all pledge our full support during the upcoming year!
Joe Dowdey took gavel in hand at exactly and boldly banged the first
meeting of the new year to order.We
were a bit short on attendees today for the chicken, mashed spuds, salad and
cookies.The president was fined by members
of his old table for abandonment.This
is probably the first of many payments for faux paus by our new leader.This week’s Bingo was at best a break even due to a few last minute
pickle payouts.There are
showing the Bingo Calendar and a list of who is on what team on the back.Ask Pat McKim for a copy.Also
available are member rosters.Ask
Bill Worth for a copy and report any errors to him.There was no Handshake Prize today. The Pot O Gold went to Norm Selby.

- World Traveler Mike Magee.Born in
Houston, Mike actually grew up in the Chicago area.In 57, he was attracted by the opportunity to ski the wondrous mountains
of Colorado and attended Boulder College where he received learning in
marketing.He returned to Chicago
for a while but then turned back to Colorado.Sold Florsheims for a bit, then turned to Real Estate in ‘72.Married Barb some 15 years ago, They have 4 kids between them (2 each)
plus resulting grandkids.Mike has
no military experience to speak of; and he spoke of non e.He made so much money in Real Estate that he and Barb bought a sail boat
and moved to Florida.They had the
boat for about three years, living on it for about half the time.They moved back to Colorado a couple of years ago so they wouldn’t miss
out on the grandparent thing.Mike
still skis when he can.
is a Gold Coat President from 93-94.Thanks,
Mike for all your contribution to the club. Giving away his $5 bucks was quite a
chore.If you were not at the
meeting, chances are your name was called.Rick
Jacobus eventually got the money.
Program was presented by Jennifer Mueller, with just the slightest bit of help
from her boss, Janelle Chakounis.The
topic was Multiple Sclerosis Society of Colorado.MS is a neurological disease that has affected some 400,000 in the US,
causing such conditions as loss of balance, tremors, blurred vision, poor

to those members who had perfect attendance during this past year.If you miss a regular meeting, there are ways you can ‘make
up’ that missed meeting:attending the meeting of another Sertoma Club; attending a
District or Regional Sertoma meeting; Board meetings; meetings of other
organizations where you are representing our club; or joint service club
meetings (such as on a cruise).You too can be perfect!Go for it!
