Jim Rees was fined for being a cheapskat. He brought is wife to lunch for their anniversary.

Announcements    Pat KcKim reminded the club about a fund raising event at Paxti’s in Cherry Hills, 3455 S. University Blvd. On April 16th....All day long. This is the same location our club had an event a few months back. Paxti’s will donate 10% of the income that day to The Listen Foundation. An e-mail was sent to all several days ago.

Scott is looking for someone to “walk in his name” at the Celebrate Sound walk May 17th. It seems A-1 Scuba is having their raffle that day and Scott is going to help them with that.

Doug brought us up to date on Rev. Robinson. Jim is still in the hospital but is doing a lot better and my be going home in a couple days.

Jim Rees gave the numbers for the King Soopers program and we missed the $5,000 mark by $290 so we did not get any money back for March.

Is anyone interested in going to the National Convention in K.C., KS (or is it MO?). I don’t know how many the club will pay expenses for but let Scott know if your interested. A couple past presidents said they enjoyed their trips when they went.

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:   Mike Magee took a very low key, enjoyable approach to the task at hand by giving a simple review of all the life events he has shared with the club on many occasion. Born in 1938. Mike completed his education at the University of Colorado. 1989 was a big year for Mike as he began two major commitments. He married Barbara and joined Arapahoe Sertoma. He feels both were good choices. No military. Mike was brought into the club by Mabe Downey – no indication that Mabe also brought Mike to Barbara.

Mike Magee 2014.jpg

Mike Magee was born 1939 in Houston but grew up in Chicago starting at about age 2. He can remember looking out his window and seeing the Troop Trains. He went to school in the Chicago area, then came out to C.U. in 1957, got a degree in marketing, then went back to Chicago and sold shoes for 9 years with the Florshiem Shoe Co. He liked Denver so well he came back and tried selling shoes here. He got tired of the flying and driving back and forth with the shoe business so he got into real estate back in 1972, then later with his wife, Barb.

Mike and Barb have been happily married 22 years. They have a daughter 45 and a son 45. Barb had 2 daughters before they met and now, there is a combined total of 7 grandkids. Mike retired about 17 years ago so they bought a sail boat and sailed around the Gulf and Atlantic for several years, enjoying it very much. They ended up selling the boat and returning to Colorado.

Mike has no military, something about having kids at the right time and being in college.

Mike is a past president of 1993/94 and has a Gold coat, with the help of Bill Anderson and a couple other members. Mabe brought him into the club.

Mike reviewed is early work experiences involving Selling flower seeds, setting bowling pins, and washing cars as a youngster, In College he sold clothes in various stores while attending night school at Cu. He currently De-Ices planes part time and has recently set up a Handyman Business.
