Tim reported that the club received a Thank You note from Second Wind Foundation for our $1,500 donation. Bill reported a Thank You note from the U.S.S. Colorado (SSN 788) Association. JJ Mackin from there was our program last Aug 13th. Also a Thank You from Craig Hospital for our support.

Rick Jacobus mentioned we have 4 schools lined up for the next Freedom Week event. He wants about 5 readers to come in early next Thursday to read and grade them.

Scott said he had a good turnout of volunteers to be Bell Ringers last Saturday for the Salvation Army. Next date is Saturday, Dec 12th from 10am to 6pm but they are only 2 hours shifts. Best to call Scott to confirm if you signed up. Scott guessed that we may have received around $2,000 but hadn’t counted it. He did say the kettle ended up full and they had to dump it.

Doug mentioned he is ringing the Bell on Friday, go by and support him. He is a relief bell ringer.

Christmas Party is next week, Dec 15 at Maggiano’s. Mike wasn’t there but if you still want to go and did not sign up, contact Mike for any open slots. You bring an extra wife or girl friend if you have one but let Mike know.

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:   The ever entertaining Doug Harder enlightened us again today as to his background and achievements. Robert Douglas Harder (alias Doug) fittingly was born on a Labor Day. Sept 22, 1937 in an oil camp in Houston, Texas near the Rio Grande River. He didn’t stay there long enough to get tall. Doug attended grade schools in Louisiana and Missouri and the 5th through 11th grade (minus one year) in Casper, Wyoming. While in the fourth grade, he had Scarlet Fever. He finished high school in Englewood. He attended 21 schools in 20 years (slow learner?).

Doug was in the Army National Guard from 1959 to 1966 and said his squad did a fabulous job of keeping the Commies out of GA. After that, he attended CU and UNC and retired as a Mortgage Broker. He has been a member of Pastor Robinson’s church, Christ Lutheran, for over 49 years and an Elder for 409 years. Shortly after the Katrina disaster, he and Pastor Robinson went down there with a disaster relief team. He said you never want to see such destruction.

Doug has been married to Carolyn since 1963 and they have 4 children and 10 grandkids and 2 great grandkids. Their oldest son Zach, was a member for a short time.

Doug was brought into the club by Bill Parchen in 1966 and has been president twice and has a Gold coat. He has been on the Foundation Committee and brought in about 60 members to Sertoma. (way to go Doug).
