Sertoman of the Day

Dennis Howell was today’s SOD. He is a Colorado native who  was born in 1952. He attended Westminster High School and developed an interest in flying at an early age earning his pilot’s license at 18 years of age. He wanted to pursue a career in aviation but became an electrician instead (something to do with cost as I recall).  Being a Farmer’s Insurance Co. agent has occupied his time for the last 20 years. Dennis has been married  26 years and has one daughter who is currently attending college. Thanks for sharing, Dennis. His fiver got quickly pocketed by Will Martinez.


Jack Marshall introduced Randy Schow as today’s program. Randy is the CEO of Mountain States Children’s Home in Longmont. The home started in 1960 as a working farm. Kids from troubled homes now work on the 155 acre farm and live there in one of the houses. The children are often from divorce situations and can be anywhere from 3 to 18 years old. The staff at the home  work with the kids and their parents with the goal of getting them back together. Most are teenagers from the front range. The average length of stay is one to one and a half years. They currently have 18 kids and hope to build two more homes on the farm so that they can take in more kids. This is a Christian, non-profit organization and their motto is “ Healing wounded spirits with Christ’s touch”. At the end of the speech, Jack presented Randy with a check for $1,500. from our club. Interesting presentation – thanks Jack and Randy.

     Today's Chuckle ...

A precious little girl walks into a pet store and asks in the sweetest little lisp, “Excuthe me, mithter, do you keep widdle wabbits?” As the shopkeeper’s heart melts, he gets down on his knees so that he’s on her level, and asks  “Do you want a widdle white wabbit, or a thoft and fuwwy bwack wabbit, or maybe one like that cute widdle bwown wabbit over there?”  She in turn blushes, rocks on her heels, puts her hands on her knees, leans forward and says in a quiet voice, “I don’t think my python weally gifth a thit.”
