Remember, if you bring in a new member and he stays 6 months, you get Free Dues - per new member for a quarter.

Dick Enslow is renewing our Bingo raffle license and indicated that Orian will be a Caption.

Norm went into the Navy in 1945, the same day he graduated from high school, for WWII. The war ended while he was in boot camp and although he didn’t get to Sail the High Seas, he did get to Puget Sound. He messed around for a couple years after the Navy. His father finally got a hold of him and convinced him to pick a trade. He went into bricklaying. He started his own company after 7 years. He ran that business for 13 years. Then had a marina in Granby for 2 years and then sold real estate for 2 years. He eventually got into homebuilding and did well for 15 years before the economy dropped out so he retired. Norm worked with Mike Magee and Will Martinez when he was learning what manual labor means.

He had 3 daughters with his first wife, Mary Lou. He met his present wife Ann while playing Tennis with Tommy Fry at Pinehurst and they were married in 1997. From that marriage he inherited several more family members. He’s now been married to Ann for 13 years.

Norm has 3 daughters, 5 g-kids and 10 gg-kids on his side with one due shortly. Ann had 4 sons and 10 g-kids but no great grandkids. Bill Anderson brought him into the club.

Program:  Randy Smith introduced Jay Tinglum from ADCO Hearing Products. Jay came to talk a little about The Hear Project and also to tell us about the store he works at, ADCO Hearing Products,4242 S. Broadway, Englewood, CO 80113. Jay is a great candidate for membership into our club, we will have to work on him.

What is The H.E.A.R. Project?
Founded in 1999, the H.E.A.R. Project provides financial assistance to Colorado children who are deaf or hard-of-hearing and do not qualify for public funding. The H.E.A.R. Project provides funding for amplification, rehabilitation and associated services.

The H.E.A.R. Project is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, directed by a group of Colorado audiologists, parents of children with hearing loss, teachers of the hearing-impaired and community members.
Why is the H.E.A.R. Project so important to Colorado children with hearing loss?

When a family learns their child has a hearing loss they experience significant emotional and financial challenges. Hearing aids cost up to $6,000 per child and are often not covered by health insurance. Public funding for hearing care is only provided to families with extremely limited incomes, leaving many Colorado children without appropriate amplification. The H.E.A.R. Project’s goal is to ease the family’s financial burden and to assure that children receive the hearing care that they need to thrive developmentally, socially, and academically.

The H.E.A.R. Project is a volunteer-run organization that relies on your support to continue our mission. In 2011, 98% of funds donated went directly to support families of children in need. In 2010-2011, our organization granted 50 awards to funding to families to help pay for hearing aids, hearing aid accessories and cochlear implant accessories. Please consider supporting our mission by contributing to our future success! http://www.hearproject.org/

Jay calls his store the “Everything but” store meaning they have about everything there is to help the hearing impaired – except hearing aids. For that, Jay will refer people to Randy Smith and his Lakewood Hearing & Speech business located at 3110 S. Wadsworth Blvd, Suite #107.
