Mike Magee, b. 1939 in Houston, grew up in Chicago. (Having his 50th year reunion this year). Came to C.U., then back to Chicago and sold shoes for 9 years. He liked Denver so well, he came back and tried selling shoes again. He go tired of flying and driving back and forth with the shoe
so he got into real estate back in 1972, along with his wife, Barb. Mike has no military, something about having kids at the right time.
Mike is a past president of 1993/94 and has a Gold coat, with the help of Sam and a couple other members. Mabe brought him into the club.
Mike and Barb retired 10 years ago and bought a sail boat and a house in Florida and sailed around for a while but ended up selling both and returning to Colorado. Bard had 2 kids, Mike had 2 kids and now they have 5 grandkids and another on the way. They have some rentals in Estes Park and spend a lot of time running up there to do maid work but they like it. They rent it out via the internet, using of the sites such as http://www.vrbo.com
Program: Cliff Metsker introduced Matt Lynett, along with Robert Lopez, to talk about Young Americans, Center For Financial Education.
“It’s not about the power of money.
It’s about the power of knowledge.”
Matt is CEO of Young Americans Bank and Young Americans Center for Financial Education in Denver. In this position he oversees the management of the bank and the nonprofit programs that, combined, reach more than 47,000 youth annually. Young Americans Bank, the only bank in the world specifically designed for young people under age 22, provides banking products and services to nearly 15,000 customers in all 50 states and 12 foreign countries. The programs of the Center share and enhance the bank’s educational mission by reaching students across the state with in-depth experiential programs that teach personal finance, free enterprise, global economics and entrepreneurship.
Since 1987, nearly 350,000 youth have been involved with Young Americans. Our mission is fulfilled by offering a wide array of hands-on programs and real-life experiences that complement and reinforce each other to build life skills, work skills and financial self-sufficiency.
The mission of Young Americans is committed to developing the financial literacy of young people through real-life experiences and hands-on programs purposefully designed to enable them to prosper in our free enterprise system.
In 1987 Bill Daniels founded Young Americans Bank as the world’s only bank designed specifically for young people 21 and under. He believed that America had the best financial system in the world and that everyone – young and old – should have access to that system.
Soon after the bank opened, requests for programs and presentations poured in from teachers and parents. In response, we established a nonprofit entity called Young Americans Center for Financial Education. This allowed us to receive community funding to provide a variety of educational programs to complement and enhance the bank’s educations mission.
Up coming program: Rick Crandall with KEZW 1430 will be our speaker 9/6 to talk a bit about the radio station and programming, but most specifically about the Colorado Freedom Memorial (a tribute to veterans) that is being planned.
