news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:  

Sertoman of the Day:   Robert Douglas Harder (alias Doug) fittingly was born on a Labor Day. Sept 22, 1937 in an oil camp in Houston, Texas, near the Rio Grande River. He didn’t stay there long enough to get tall. Doug attended grade schools in Louisiana and Missouri and the 5th through 11th grade (minus one year) in Casper, Wyoming. While in the fourth grade, he had Scarlet Fever. He finished high school in Englewood. He attended 21 schools in 20 years (slow learner?).

Doug was in the Army National Guard from 1959 to 1966 and said his squad did a fabulous job of keeping the Commies out of GA. After that, he attended CU and UNC and retired as a Mortgage Broker. He has been a member of Pastor Robinson’s church, Christ Lutheran, for over 49 years and an Elder for 409 years. Shortly after the Katrina disaster, he and Pastor Robinson went down there with a disaster relief team. He said you never want to see such destruction.

Doug has been married to Carolyn since 1963 and they have 4 children and 10 grandkids and 2 great grandkids, one just a couple weeks old. Their oldest, Zach, was a member for a short time.

Doug was brought into the club by Bill Parchen in 1966 and has been president twice and has a Gold coat. He has been on the Foundation Committee and brought in abt 58 members to Sertoma. (way to go Doug)

Doug entertained us with some stories about him and Bill Parchen, when Bill was an Englewood Policeman and Doug was in high school. Doug says that Bill was the Barney Fife of his day. He took being a police officer way, way over the top. He would walk around holding his chest out showing off his badge. Back then, Doug would steal gas from Winslow Const. Company, they would roll under the fence with 5 gallon cans and fill them up. Englewood Police set up surveillance around 12:30 or 1am and Bill had his car parked in a place where there were some trees and Doug asked him later if that was to get some shade and Bill said yah, it’s hot. (it was midnight). Bill would sit in the car and Doug and his cohorts would rev up their cars and Bill thought they were trying to distract him but they had already gotten the gas. Listen to Doug.mp3

Program:   Scott Manley introduced Terry Chase, MA, ND, RN….Terry received a spinal cord injury after being hit by a drunk driver while she was riding her bicycle near Grand Junction.

Terry’s talk today was “This Much I Know: 7 Life Lessons Learned in Spinal Cord Injury Rehab”. Her 7 Lessons are: 1. Dare to be authentic; 2. Say what needs to be said; 3. Ask for help, accept the help; 4. Some days are crying days, some days are laughing days; 5. I am right where I need to be; 6. Claim to fame: Do something extraordinary; 7. Competition isn’t all that bad. The included audio will explain all the lessons along with her complete talk.

Terry is an inspiration, passing on the life lessons she learned to get passed the difficulties that a spinal cord injury can cause. She had her good days and her bad but has gone on to accomplish may things and inspire many people. Listen to Terry Chase.mp3
