Guests:  Glenn Combellick brought 2 guests, Rod his son from Alaska and Mike Showalter his son-in-law from Seattle: Jim Robinson introduced his LSC Vicky Oren
Table 1 had a guest, Will Martinez and you know what that means for table 1?

Fines:  Of course Table 1 was fined for violating their own rules of “No Guests”…Passed
Randy fined the President for picking Mike Ballew to start the song. I think that was the worst one so far this year….passed:
Norm felt so bad about spilling coffee on Will that Norm fined himself.
Glenn was fined for his two guests.

We need to check to see if Orian has “wiped his server clean” since he boasted as being “the only Democrat in the room” AND he has 50¢

Announcements:   Mike Magee said there wasn’t enough interest in a tour of the NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory) in Golden for the group but you can go as an individual anytime they have tours. Just contact them to get their schedule. I think April 22nd is the next one and they are held only once a month, normally the 3rd Friday of the month.

Birthdays this week: Mike Ballew, Bob Schlageter and Jim Perkins.

Several members gave an update on Dean Hiss and it seems he is doing very well but he is still at rehab. Preperations are being made for him to go home shortly.

Dick Enslow gave an update on his 5 hours of re-certification with the Secretary of State and he passed with flying colors…..he is good for another term as our Bingo / Raffle games manager. He also game an update on how a plane at DIA was damaged by a deicing truck (no, Dick was not the driver)…..There was a mechanicle failure of the equipment.

Our Service to Mankind nominee is Doug Jackson, CEO of Project CURE and he will be our Program April 16th.

Scott is about to get some details on the upcoming A-1 Scuba fund raiser which is May 15-16. Pat McKim won it last year and is taking the trip next month.

Jim Rees reported we had the worse 4 weeks for King Sooper purchases.

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.

news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:  Rick Jacobus ( aka Night Owl), born 23 July, 1936 in Grand Rapids, Michigan (same hospital as President Ford but 2 years later) but grew up in Ohio on an Army base until he was a junior in high school at which point the family moved to CO when in 1953 and graduated from Sheridan High in 1954. He worked for Public Service about 3 years when a co-worker advised him to go to college. A grad of UNC, Greeley with a degree in Distributive Education, Rick gave up teaching school (elementary phs ed) after one year but went on to a successful 35 year career in the insurance field.

Rick lives with his wife Bonnie, they were married in June of 1962. They have a son, Rod, 49, who lives in LA, and a daughter Jill, 47, who’s husband and kids live in this area, which gives Rick a chance to spoil the 2 grandkids twice a week.

Rick missed joining the Navy by one day, he was going to sign up but a letter from the Army, forwarded from Harder which stated Rick had received his 2S-deferment into the Army. That was close. He was in the NAVY Reserve and Air Force ROTC.

A member of Arapahoe since 24 July, 1974, Rick has done it all including President (79-80), Secretary, Governor, District Governor in 1982-83 and more. He mentioned how he was instrument in getting a club to shut down. He was recruited into the club by who else, Doug Harder. He did not win a Gold Coat, thanks to Harder. Listen to Rick Jacobus.mp3

Program:   Orian Hunter, taking the advice of his wife Ellen, introduced Bill Morris, CEO of Blue Star Recyclers.

It could be said that Bill is just one of the many resources recycled at Blue Star Recyclers, because after a 25 year career in the telecommunications industry Bill wasn't sure where he was needed. Co-founding Blue Star Recyclers in November, 2009 with Tony and Mary Fagnant was the culmination of a long string of developments spanning the coincidental to the miraculous, and everyone on the founding team knew they were onto something special. Bill says, "I am the luckiest guy I know — to love your work and your team this much, while having an opportunity to lead an organization that produces such a positive human, economic, and environmental impact in the communities we serve.

Bill was named Recycler of the Year from the Colorado Association for Recycling, Employer of the Year from the Arc of the Pikes Peak Region, and Small Business Person of the Year from the Colorado Springs Better Business Bureau. He was invited to the White House as a "Champions of Change" finalist and was a Colorado Biz Magazine "CEO of the Year" Award finalist. Most recently he was selected as a Beanstalk Foundation Leader.
