The District Social is Aug. 19th. There will be a “quickie” board meeting next week on what we want to do about the Englewood Chamber luncheon on Oct 19th.

Tim gave a short report on the Sertoma Promotion Club “hear to work program” You should have all received an e-mail on this program.

Doug Harder presented Norm Schillo a recruiting award from bringing Jim Britton into the club. Norm will get free dues for one quarter of the year.

Jim Rees passed a sign-up sheet around for Western Welcome Week of Aug. 21st. It’s in the same location as last week.

Dick Enslow passed a sign up sheet for the Annual Arapahoe Sertoma Fall classic Golf Tournament. It is only four and a half weeks away, Sep 7th.

Will Martinez has King Soopers coupons. The club receives 5% but only 4 people regularly use the service. The card is like a debit card so it’s easy to use.



Rick Jacobus, 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.. 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, 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, 46, who lives in San Francisco, and a daughter Jill, 43, 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 was recruited into the club by whom else, Doug Harder. He did not win a Gold Coat, thanks to Harder.


Program:  Bob Schlageter introduced Brian Gish of Brian Gish Seminars. Mr. Gish was a Sales Trainer for over 5 years, President of a Toastmaster Club, keynote speaker, Passort Member of the Colorado Speakers Association, and a Real Estate Agent for over 30 years.
Brian's Credentials:
• Instructor for Colorado Association of Realtors, statewide
• Instructor for Moore's School for Training New Employees
• Instructor for S.M.I. (Success Motivation Institute)
• Jefferson County Board as Facilitator, Orientator & Guest Speaker
• Past President of Toastmasters of Broomfield His talk for today is called “57 seconds to success…how to make a great first impression”.

The 57 second rule: Within 57 seconds, people are deciding whether they LIKE you, TRUST you or want to get to KNOW you. The rules are simple, when you meet a new person, say their name 3 to 5 times, have eye contact for 57 seconds, smile and give a firm hand shake (not a wishy washy one and not a vise grip). On what to talk to them about, think F O R M. F=their family. O=their occupation. R=recreation and M=money.
