Meeting Highlights

Chicken and Cornish Hen, spuds, salad and brownies for the tummies. Four guests: Bill Kaiser, Dave Penland, Jim Rees, Jim Robinson. Amid the fines today: Mason for being a buffet line obstacle, the Sgt-at-Arms (Mason) for dereliction, Table 1 for having a guest, Bezjak and Dowdey for guestus interruptous, and Table 16 for not introducing a guest. One of those failed - do you remember which? Rumor has it Dean Hiss was briefly in hospital for repair. Get well soon. McKim has his arm in a sling (says hef fell off his trike again). Again, there was no Handshake prize. Randy Smith won the Pot O Gold.


Sertoman of the Day

SOD Alec Doucette. Born in ‘73 (yes, that’s correct). Native of Aspen, he grew up with an adoptive family in Hot Sulphur Springs were he enjoyed the hunting and fishing life, he says. Attended UNC in Greeley, graduated with a degree in Sociology and married Jennifer. Worked in Community Corrections, then worked with the City and County of Denver in monitoring anklet wearers. Went with the family business (bingo supplies). Alec has 4 daughters (8-7-7-1). Joined club when he figured out old guys were okay. We are glad he did. $5 to Randy Smith.


Program

Angela Jankousky gave today’s program. She has a most impressive  engineering /environmental background. She chose as her topic ‘For Leadership - Give  me Shackleton’. She used the story of the ill-fated voyage of the Endurance in the Antarctic in 1914-1916, combined with attributes, and characteristics of its commander Ernest Shackleton to outline leadership strategies. It was an interesting story and an interesting approach. She emphasized 3 areas to key on: Commitment, Role modeling and Optimism in attitude. Thanks to Angela for an intriguing program.

Looking Back . . .

The Arapahoe Sertoma Christmas Party held on December 18th at Las Brisas was a success with 45 members and guests in attendance. The gift exchange provided as many interesting challenges as always. Good fun, good fellowship, good food and good job social committee.

Ho Ho Ho! Santa was as jolly as ever at the Arapahoe Kids/Grandkids Christmas Party held the 23rd of December. More than a hundred shared the not so traditional chicken fingers and mac/cheese. The young and the young at heart loved the food and entertainment. Thanks to the committee and to santa who comes down the chimney (which appears to be in the men’s room) once a year. 

Congratulations to our Sertoman of the Year, Don Masias. Thanks Don for your outstanding service to club and community. He will be receiving his plaque soon. Our Service to Mankind Award is being presented to Sami Stephenson as soon as we can make arrangements.

Looking Forward . . .

The first meeting of our new club will be 7 am Wednesday January 12th.
Our
target area is Lone Tree/Highlands Ranch/Park Meadows and environs. 
The weekly
breakfast meetings will be held at Mimi’s Restaurant 9155 Park Meadows
Drive (just south of C470 at Yosemite exit). Your help is vital. This is a club effort and we need prospects. We need the names of your friends, relatives, business associates and clients. Be part of the club building team.

Country Dinner Playhouse social on Thursday February 3rd to see ‘Ten Little Indians’, a mystery. Interested? Call Tom Fry now to let him know.

February 15th is the date for the Combined Central Colorado - Front Range District Freedom Week Luncheon. Sign up to attend so that we may honor our club’s winners.

On the evening prior, we will have a dinner for our International
President Skylar Martin. The Arapahoe club is the host; will you help?

The Mountain West Regional Convention is April 21, 22 and 23. It won’t get any closer or more convenient. The convention hotel, which we have known forever as the Hilton South, or Hilton DTC, is changing its name to the Radisson Park Plaza, so don’t be confused. Attending a Regional Convention is a fun, educational and enlightening experience. The club will support your involvement so put the dates on your schedule. It is worth your time.
