song was sung, the pledge recited, the prayer offered and
the Sertomans competitively lined up to eat fried
chicken, biscuits, (no Grandma’s gravy), potato salad,
mixed salad and big cookies. At 12:25 post meridian,
Orian Hunter, Board Chairman, King Emeritus, SOD, and His
Regent, for today, called for guests.
There being none present, he moved right into announcements
to which Ric Jacobus responded with a reminder about
the Cajun Cookout Saturday at 11am. Bring a dish of
something to round out fried turkey and fried catfish.
Bob Hogge could use a few more volunteers during Western
Welcome Week Lemonade Squeeze. Mr. Hunter thinks Bob
nearly has his impersonation of Ahhh Enslow perfected.
Rich Carlson announced that Elizabeth and Victoria will make
every effort to cook whatever the club would like, within
reason. If you have a favorite meal or ideas for
lunch, let Victoria know. B-Team had 125 players
deposited and there is $2940 in the progressive game.
C-Team is up next, August 6th. John Pifer has 6 unsold
tickets for the Rockies game August 19th. He delivered
peanuts and crackerjacks for all present ticket holders .
Back from England, Doug Harder announced that the Platte
Canyon Golf Match Arapahoe players names will be drawn next
week. Harder fined Dave Miley $1 for impersonating the
manager of the Cincinnati Reds baseball team. Carlson
fined Joe Dowdey for answering his cell phone during the
meeting and carrying on business in the hall.
of the Day
Basking in officialdom,
Orian Hunter appointed himself SOD and proceeded to list the
rivers which have been a part of his life. He started
with the South Platte, named at least a dozen more drains of
the upper U.S. plains states and ended with the
Mississippi. Orian spared us what could have been a
long and interesting bio-sketch and ended his story naming
his principal sponsor, Jon Sheptak, and several more.
Bob Hogge, aware that the SOD cannot be fined attempted to
fine Orian $1 for such a sparse sketch. His motion
failed. Zach Harder won his $5. Zach now has
enough $s to offer a Jumbo loan at a very good rate
his temporary reign through another step, Kingly Hunter
introduced his guest, John McGregor. John is a retired
high school teacher, finishing a 35 year career at Thomas
Hunter was in his choir when he attended TJ. John
became involved in Good Shepherd Communities (GSC) when his
own son , who is now 49 years of age was placed with GSC.
John showed a film clip depicting how “GSC is an
innovative organization that helps people with developmental
disabilities live life to the fullest, with dignity .
Founded in 1956 as a Christian (Lutheran) non-profit
organization emphasizing principles of love, care and
compassion, GSC has continued to grow, serving thousands of
individuals and families over the years. Today, GSC is
a premier multi-state agency with locations in CA, CO, OR
and WA.” John McGregor added interesting anecdotal
comments, supplied us with informative handouts and answered
many questions from Sertomans. His program was very
interesting and informative.
