Guests:  Anna Marie & Jim Jackson (speaker’s parents)

Fines:  Members sitting at Table 1 chose to carry on a heated discussion during another members announcement costing each two bits.

Announcements:  Scott Manley revisited Dean Hiss out at the Littleton Care and Rehabilitation Center at 5822 South Lowell Way where he enjoys the cooking and is still loafing. Dean feels fine and is again able to walk around fairly well. They will send him home as soon as they get his blood sugar in proper balance.

Pat McKim – The poker party will be held Tuesday May 19th, 6-12pm at the Elks club. Price will be $65 again and Pat will have tickets maybe next week. More details later but start rounding up prospective players. Beer and Wine – cash bar – with a light dinner included.
Some information on how to play is at:

Pat stressed the need to come up with 160 players for maximum returns given this is about our only income.

President Bill Benton relayed info for a number of upcoming events including this year’s induction banquette, which I think is being set for June 12th. More details and sign up sheets will be part of future meeting discussions.

Remember, if you bring in a new member and he stays 6 months, you get Free Dues - per new member for a quarter.


news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day: Jack Marshall told us about his life which started out April 17, 1957, 2 days before the tax deadline for his dad. Born in Denver, lived in Virginia and Maryland because dad was in Army Air Corp, and returned to Littleton in 68 and graduated from Littleton High. In Dec. 6, 1975, he joined the Air Force as a weapons specialist on a bomber and served in England. He mentioned it was his guys that sent the bombs over to Libya that were used on Muammar Gaddafi’s Palace. He served 4 years. When he returned to the state, he got off the plane in Myrtle Beach, SC. and the heat and humidity about knocked him over.

Jack was discharged in Dec. 7, 1979 as a Sergeant, and tried being an electrician but got zapped so many times, he decided to change career paths. He went to A.C.C. for Architectural Technology and ended up with a scholarship to a school in Kansas but bought a house here and started attending CU but didn't graduate. He learned enough from his dad to help him pass the tests. He did teach Architectural Technology at A.C.C.

Jack met his wife, Marcia, who was from NE and they were married in Jan of 1987. It was a short courtship and at least 9 months after they were married, his daughter was born in Oct. (something about being snowed in was mentioned). They also have 2 boys and several G-kids.
Jack's father and others, such as Bill Parchen, brought him into the club. He figured after 10 years in Kiwanis and 9 of those years in a position of office and 4 of those as the President, Sertoma wouldn't be bad but it didn't take long before he started through the chairs and made it to the top.

Jack said he once sat on LBJ’s bed at the White House and played with LBJ’s dog. He also mentioned he took the Enslow School of Speed Reading and Speaking.

Program:  Randy Smith introduced Douglas Jackson, President/CEO of Project C.U.R.E. Doug is also this year’s Arapahoe Sertoma’s Service To Mankind recipient and was presented an award plaque at the end of the meeting.

When Doug’s father retired, he recalled the vast sea of need for medical supplies and equipment he had witnessed in many of our world’s emerging countries. From gathering and storing medical goods in the family garage, Doug has grown the organization to where it now has four Regional Distribution Centers and from shipping supplies not just to Brazil originally but to 130 countries today. Each week they average 3 semitrailers full of medical goods for the needy. Doug has developed C.U.R.E. through donations from groups and individuals, to hospitals donating excess inventories or no longer used machinery including hospital beds and large machines with an original price tag in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. He told the example story of a pregnant lady suffering during labor who was transported over very rough roads to the hospital where the doctor could do nothing for her. Due to a lack of hospital gloves he could not even touch her. She died there: This creates a mind set for others that the hospital is a place where you go to die.

Doug was very gracious in complimenting our club for the good works and services we provide. C.U.R.E. relies heavily on volunteers utilizing 16,000 such persons annually just in boxing goods and loading them into the trailers. If one wishes to become involved, go to their web site and find the appropriate number to call (near the bottom on the right hand side). He quoted – from small groups comes world change (paraphrased by this reporter). Doug, as an outstanding orator, is highly skilled at obtaining and organizing needed goods and services.
