After 3-1/2 years of feeding this ravenous group, Jeannie is moving on BUT, she has found another company to take over. It’s The Copper Pot on S. Broadway. We met the two servers, Ally and Nikki. They will start in 2 weeks since there is NO LUNCH Feb. 23 do to Freedom Week on the 21st.

Rick Jacobus says there will be tables available at this year’s Freedom Week to display stuff, like promotional or other stuff. If you have any ideas, let Rick know.

The Freedom Week event is at the Pinehurst Country Club, 6255 W. Quincy Ave. Registration: 10:30-11:15 AM; 6255 W. Quincy Ave. Registration:

Dave Miley announced we will have a club outing to K-1 Racing again this year. It will be held March 17th, a Friday. Same format as last year and if you own a helmet, you are welcome to use it instead of theirs. Don may not be there so you have a chance this year.

Remember, if you bring in a new member and he stays 6 months, you get Free Dues - per new member for a quarter. A couple members just qualified for this perk.


news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:   Jim Rees was born in Springfield, Illinois on 14 June 1933, but was raised in Bloomington. He went to the Univ. of Illinois for 4-1/2 years. While there he got a draft notice and because he was in the Air Force ROTC program he was allowed to continue provided he graduated, otherwise the Army had a rifle for him. Graduated and in May of 1956, started pilot training in Arizona. Shortly after finishing that part of his training, the Air Force closed the base. Two days after receiving his wings he married Jo in Fort Worth, Texas. The balance of his flight training was at Goodfellow AFB it was closed to major flight operations. In Sacramento he flew RC-121 radar planes.

He left the service in July 1960 and went to work for Underwood-Olivetti and in 1962 moved to Denver for 6 months then to Colorado Springs as branch manager. They closed that office and he moved back to Denver to work for Xerox, then was transferred to Houston as a manager. During which time McClellan AFB in Sacramento was closed to major flying operations. He moved back to Denver in June of 1969 and got into real estate with a couple of former Xerox friends, then went out on his own and has been since 1975.

Jim and Jo have been married for 58 years; have 2 children, a son and daughter and several grandkids. Jim was brought into the club my Bob Stein on Feb. 2005, sat on most chairs (except Secretary) and was a President. Listen to Listen to Jim Rees.mp3
