Song - Unknown             Pledge - A Patriot         Invocation - M. Magee

A loud, boisterous bunch, finishing their ham, scalloped potatoes, salad and cookies were called to order by President Dowdey, who commented that all in attendance got the date right on their slips except one.  It took a lot of posturing to get him to identify Tim Pollak as the guilty one.  Tim was promptly fined a quarter for not knowing the date.  Tim, not to be outdone, fined Dr. Elsey a buck for advertising his kitty litter on Channel 4 in person.  Don Smith fined Dick Mason for failing to hang the banner again. In turn, Mason fined Don Smith for not knowing Bingo Numbers. The motion FAILED. Mason sold a few Bronco tickets, reaping $15. Parchen fined him $.25 and started a lot of discussion. Bruce Elsey won 2 tickets for his $5 investment.  Tim Pollak needs someone to march with him during the Gateway to the Parade.  Please   someone do it.  Mike Magee declares he is nearly out of King Soopers Coupons - only 4 for $100 - Hurry.  D Team is up next Wednesday and is cautioned: Do not discuss fishing in the pickle pit, speak softly. Don't disturb the Bingo players.  The C Team sweated out a $4000 deposit.  The Divine Serteen Club of Overland High invites you to EAT OUT at ZIA'S ITALIAN RESTAURANT in Aurora on 9/14/04 and/or 9/28/04 , 4 pm to closing.  I-225 & Iliff, East to Blackhawk & South 1 block, 303-369-6993 ZIA'S will donate 20% of your meal ticket to the Serteen Club.  See Mike Ballew for coupons.  Dick Enslow touted the Arapahoe Fall Classic Golf Tournament. Table1 was fined for behaving like fish at a Bingo game.

Program

Today’s Program, introduced by John Vierthaler, was Susan Hamelin, Chairman and Executive Director of The Lung Connection, Inc. (TLC) TLC is a comprehensive and reliable resource for individuals and families in America for ways to survive and prosper in the lung transplant business. TLC provides short-term housing and transportation for out-of-town transplant recipients who must spend three months close to the transplant center after surgery. After the three month period there will be additional visits to clinics, which require outpatient treatment for a few days or as little as a couple of hours. A lung transplant survivor herself, Susan described the process from detection of the need for a transplant, finding a donor with specific requirements, hospitalization, transportation, surgery and recovery. Very complex and very worthwhile. Arapahoe members asked many questions and received answers to all. Susan's program was well presented and very informative. We thank her and wish her well.
