Sertoman of the Day:   John Vierthaler was born in 1941, the son of Immigrants. His Father is from Austria and fought in WWI for the Kaiser. His mother was from the Austria-Hungarian Empire. They both immigrated to Pittsburgh, PA independently and met while they lived there. John was born in Pittsburgh and grew up on the Ohio River.

John went to Aspen Wall HS in Aspen Wall, PA. it was torn down about 10 years after he graduated. John went on to Grove City College in Grove City, PA., a private college founded by the heirs of the Sun Oil Company. It is a very independent college.

In 1963, he was in Air Force ROTC because they had mandatory military service and paid $30 a month. Graduated with a commission as a 2nd Lt. Spent 3 years in Atlanta, "defending our nation". Went to Law School at Emery University in Atlanta, GA at night. Got out of the military and transferred all his credits to the University Of Pittsburgh School Of Law and graduated a year later. Worked for Alcoa as a corporate attorney. Later went to work for his father-in-law. By this time he was up to three kids. The family used to come up to Colorado to ski. After four years of trips, Brenda, his wife, convinced John to move to Colorado. He moved out with two adults, three kids, two dogs, and two cats. (They lost one of their cats in Russell, Kansas).

John worked for Bill Malone who inducted him to the club in October of 1980. He opened his own office after leaving Bill's firm. He has been in the same office at the corner of Wadsworth and Bowles for the past 22 years. John does estates and trusts, real estate, small business and civil law.

Brenda passed away about 9 years ago and he is still single. He farms for a hobby, tents dry land and raises horses and chases coyotes on horseback for fun. Name of the farm is “Four Valley Farm” because in Austrian his name translates into "four valleys".      Listen to John Vierthaler.mp3

We have been providing services in Denver, Colorado since 1918. By 1946, we added speech therapy and changed our name to the Denver Hearing Society. We began offering hearing services in Colorado Springs in the early '70's. Jill mentioned they were able to buy their first truck through the donations from our club, along with other help we have provided to them over the years. Jill has been with them since 1979.

The Center for Hearing, Speech and Language is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that offers health care services of the highest quality to the people who live in the Metropolitan Denver area and Colorado Springs. The Center for Hearing, Speech and Language is unique in that our professional staff of audiologists, speech pathologists and therapists provide quality hearing, vision, speech and language services for people of all ages, including those who are unable to pay.

We're Providing Financial Assistance to Those In Need...And That Brings Us Together

You won't find this kind of help anywhere else. The Center for Hearing, Speech and Language proudly offers free and sliding-scale fees based on need, family size and income levels according to Federal Poverty Guidelines used to determine financial eligibility. Our KidScreen Program provides screenings to preschool and school-age children, over half of whom are receiving financial aid for their screening. Our Hearing Aid Bank is a special fund we created so that we can help low-income clients pay for hearing aids and assistive listening devices.      Listen to JillWayne.mp3
