Good attendance and a good meal was enjoyed by all Arapahoe SERTOMAN's.  The mood was rather mild.  Only a few fines were imposed and no one threatened to leave the club.  President Joe is doing a fine job of leading the Club into the waning day's of his administration.  The agenda was altered a little because of our speakers need to leave early.  All in all, it was another good day at the Elk's club.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:  Bill Parchen promoted the Golf Tournament to be held on June 27, at Englewood Golf Course.  The fee is $50.  It will be a scramble format.  Join us for a good time.  Howie Kelsall is in Swedish Hospital.  Details of his condition will be included next week.  The A team was composed of six replacements Wednesday night.  One hundred and one players were viewing for a progressive pot of $1,796.  We deposited $3,200.  Mike Ballew announced the District Leadership  Conference scheduled for Regis High school on Saturday, June 11.  The Joint Board meeting will be on Tuesday, June 14.

Sertoman of the Day

Today’s SOD was Dick Laskey. Reading from some notes on the back of a dinner plate (which was empty by then) Dick said that he was born in 1948 in Detroit , Michigan . He received his degree in accounting from Western Michigan State (I think that was the school), and in 1974 moved to Colorado and joined a CPA firm. He later went in business for himself as a CPA which is what he is doing currently. He joined Sertoma in 1980 and was a Gold Coat President in 1986. He has been treasurer about 5 times and served on the board almost every year he has been a member. Dick has a son and a daughter and two grandchildren. Mabe, a guy with money to burn, got his fiver.



Barney O'Grady brought us House Representative Joe Stingel from House District 38.  Joe is a strong willed conservative willing to take on unpopular issues and has rivaled the Governor in some cases.  Joe gave us an update on Referendum C and D.  The measures will be up for approval at the next election.  He explained how the Referendum will effect Transportation, Police and Firemen's retirement, Education, and Health Care.  Joe brought to our attention the declining value of the bonds from the Master Settlement Agreement with the tobacco companies.  The Bonds have declined from an original value of $4 billion to $1 billion.  Joe is serving his final term due to term limits.  Thank you Barney and Joe for a great program.
