This weeks Reporter- Mike Magee

Song:   ??          Pledge: Schlageter       Invocation:  Rev. Robinson

In response to Prez Marshall’s guest request, John Pifer introduced Cliff Metsker again (this serves as the third publishing) who will be inducted into the club soon. John is one of our top recruiters – thanks John and welcome Cliff! Joe Dowdy made some kind of comparison between Cliff’s seated elevation and Harder’s standing elevation (I think Cliff won!). Miley inquired about a height limitation in the club, but no motion. Table 1 got their usual fine for having a guest, but Pifer footed the bill. Bingo “B” team last night had 132 people, deposited $5,400. and built up the progressive pot to $8,200. Dave Penlund announced that as growth committee head he has been instructed to build the club by three additional members. Let’s all get behind this effort! Jim Rees has three Entertainment books left. Need one? Enslow presented the golf trophies and made all the winners feel very “special”. Littleton Bingo is moving to a new Southglenn location in a couple of weeks and “D” team may be at the new location. Be sure to check before going to work bingo. Buckland announced that the Monday night football party may be cancelled for lack of people signing up. Jim Perkins needs nominations for Service to Mankind and Sertoman of the Year awards. Please help if you have any thoughts on these awards. I asked for donations for ALS Foundation for a fund raising walk that Barb and I are doing Saturday (for a friend with ALS) and you responded with pledges of over $500! That’s awesome – thanks! Bob Hogge announced a golf tournament at Lone Tree benefiting Friends of Mankind on 9-30-05 and drew the foursome of Bezjak, Rees, Miley and Magee. No hand shake prize, POG to Bob Schlageter 

Sertoman of the Day

Our SOD today was the old quarter guy, Bob Stein. Thanks for funding our POG! He is a genuine Colorado native. Bob attended Regis High School, then served four years with the Navy. He then married Diane, his childhood sweetheart. They have a daughter who now lives in Texas with their granddaughter (and son-in-law). Bob has held probably all of the jobs in our club along with many at the district level. He is a great Sertoman and our club is fortunate to have him. Jim Robinson was also fortunate in that he nabbed the car wash king’s fiver. 

Program

John Vierthaler introduced today’s speaker, Dave Steinke. Dave is a graduate of DU and has been with the U.S.Forrest Service for 27 years. This year is the 100th anniversary of the U.S.Forrest Service. Dave is a fire information officer and also a film maker. He helped produce a movie called “The Greatest Good” which is a two hour movie that has been shown over 1,000 times. It will be shown on PBS next year. The U.S.Forrest Service falls under the Dept. of Agriculture and has approximately 191,000,000 acres that it oversees. There are over 40,000 employees, 3,700 working on the Katrina disaster. He explained how the Incident Command System works and how the efforts of all agencies are better coordinated through organization and better communication. Good program. Thanks John and Dave.

Pot of Gold went to ED BEZJAK.   FRED DOWNS won the handshake prize.

TODAY’S CHUCKLE 

A woman was having a passionate affair with an inspector from a pest control company. One afternoon they were carrying on in the bedroom together when her husband arrived home unexpectedly.  “Quick,” said the woman to her lover,” into the closet!” and she pushed him into the closet stark naked.  The husband, however, became suspicious and after a search of the bedroom discovered the man in the closet.   “Who are you?” he asked him.  “I’m an inspector from Bugs-B-Gone,” said the exterminator.  “What are you doing in there?” the husband asked. “I’m investigating a complaint about an infestation of moths” the man said. “And where are you clothes?” asked the husband.  The man looked down at himself and said “Those little bastards!”
