news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:  

Sertoman of the Day:   Jim Helmick was startled to learn he would be the SOD today. Jim was born in Toledo Ohio on August 11, 1936, on the banks of the Maumee River. At the age of 19 he enrolled into the University of Toledo and 10 years later received his degree in Electrical Engineering. In the meantime, he got married and fathered 3 children who have produced so far 7 grandchildren. While in night school, he worked at a large hardware store from 54-60, and at Toledo Scale from 60-64. His work caused him to travel a lot, going to Texas, Alabama, Nebraska, Iowa, New Jersey, California and Colorado. Jim was born between wars and although he did register for the draft, he was not called.

He started working for Johns Mansville in 1965, George Hannes hired him in Ohio. In 1974 he had to choose between staying married or moving to Colorado. Since his wife wished to stay in Toledo with the kids and grand kids, and since it is obvious that Jim is here in Colorado, the choice is clear. Jim later remarried and is now married to Barbara, his wife of 37 years and he has 2 daughters and a son plus about 7 grandkids and a greatgrandkid on the way. Jim held various positions with J.M. including director of fiber glass research and director of marketing. After spending sometime in California in the minerals division, Jim left J.M. in 1990 and returned to Colorado in 1998. Rich Carlson brought him into the club in 1998.   Listen to Jim Helmick.mp3

Program:   Randy Smith introduced Jean Flynn Ray, the Volunteer Coordinator at Inter-Faith Community Services. Jean showed a dvd video about the organization, then described what she and they do to help people in need, in the community. Jean said they always welcome volunteers, either individually or as a group and wouldn’t turn down any donations, either money, food or clothing.

Our History: In 1964 in response to growing community needs relating to serving the working-poor, indigent and home bound elderly in South Metro Denver, leaders from all segments of the community – led by Inter-Faith founder Maida Navis – came together in what was and is truly a community-based effort to form Inter-Faith Task Force for Community Services (now Inter-Faith Community Services.)

Starting with simple programming designed to meet the basic human needs of food, clothing and shelter, Inter-Faith has grown into the largest emergency and continual support systems in South Metro Denver for low-income families, children, seniors and the homeless. Inter-Faith is dedicated to providing services that bridge the gaps between crisis, survival and independence. In 1968 Inter-Faith was designated the “official poverty agency” in its service area and together, with the board, staff, volunteers and community support, the agency has served numerous low-income persons since its inception.

With the philosophy of a hand up, not a hand out the agency strives to support its clients in every phase of their climb to self-sufficiency and success.

Our Mission: Inter-Faith Community Services provides basic human services and enrichment programs to low-income people using community resources. Inter-Faith fosters self-sufficiency and respects the dignity of each client. Inter-Faith serves the people of Centennial, Englewood, Glendale, Highlands Ranch, Littleton, Lone Tree, Sheridan and unincorporated Arapahoe County.

They are holding a Mine-Golf Friend-Raiser Saturday, June 22nd at Cornerstone Park.  Details can be found at the below web page along with all their other information.
