news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:   Jim Rees passed out a paper designed to illustrate changing paradigms which consisted of three rows of three dots all equal distance and challenged us to connect all the dots with four straight lines. Carl Duncan solved and explained the need to “thing Outside of the Box”.

Jim touched on a few of his highlights, mentioning he and Jo will reach their 58th wedding anniversary next month and reported our King Soopers fund raising has slacked off. He mentioned other places where you may also use the card such as buying gas at the Loaf & Jug. See Jim for details.

Jim Rees was born in Springfield, Illinois on 14 June 1933, but was raised in Bloomington. He went to the Univ. of Illinois for 4-1/2 years. While there he got a draft notice and because he was in the Air Force ROTC program he was allowed to continue provided he graduated, otherwise the Army had a rifle for him. Graduated and in May of 1956, started pilot training in Arizona. Shortly after finishing that part of his training, the Air Force closed the base. Two days after receiving his wings he married Jo in Fort Worth, Texas. The balance of his flight training was at Goodfellow AFB it was closed to major flight operations. In Sacramento he flew RC-121 radar planes.

He left the service in July 1960 and went to work for Underwood-Olivetti and in 1962 moved to Denver for 6 months then to Colorado Springs as branch manager. They closed that office and he moved back to Denver to work for Xerox, then was transferred to Houston as a manager. During which time McClellan AFB in Sacramento was closed to major flying operations. He moved back to Denver in June of 1969 and got into real estate with a couple of former Xerox friends, then went out on his own and has been since 1975.

Jim and Jo have been married for 58 years; have 2 children, a son and daughter and several grandkids. Jim was brought into the club my Bob Stein on Feb. 2005, sat on most chairs (except Secretary) and was a President.
