Guests:    Alice Perkins, Jim’s wife: Vicky Oren, Rev. Robinsons's LSC

FINES:   n/a

Birthdays:   n/a

Announcements:   Bob (Mr. President) Buckland didn’t show up today (maybe due to the icy road conditions) so Scott Manley did the best he could to control the group (and he did a pretty darn good job of it).

Ed Bezjak is back and looking good. He is using a cane to help steady himself and lost a lot of weight but other then that, he’s doing pretty darn good. He just doesn’t remember what happened so he can’t tell you. You can hear him tell his story here: Ed.mp3

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.

Super Bowl Pool sheet:

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:   Tim Pollak, with a PhD on the wall, brought us up to date on his life story. Tim was born Sep. 6, 1945 on the south side of Chicago. Probably while still in the hospital, their apartment caught on fire and the family moved to the Rogers Park area of Chicago. When in first grade, they moved to Evanston and he went through all grades there. The high school was so large, he went to “East Hall” high school in Evanston.

At 15, he was active in youth groups, debating life. They decided there was no universal purpose to human life. Because of that, he decided to go into clinical psychology. He attended Antioch College and their “cooperative plan of education (classes for one quarter then work in the field for a quarter). He worked in Phoenix, AZ; Boston, MA; Skokie, IL and San Jose, CA to name a few.

Tim was a “consciences objector” at the time of the Viet Nam war and worked in several hospitals instead of fighting. He was accepted to DU in Social Work but wondered why he never heard from the U. of TN. After a phone call and an interview, he was accepted. He graduated with a PhD in Clinical Psych. from the Univ. in 1979.

Tim married the first time in 1981, divorced in 1982, met Ruth in 1983 and married her in 1984. (He didn’t mention what happened in 1985 but it had to be good). Tim and Ruth have their own counseling service called Re Leaf Counseling (303 972-0714). He was introduced to the club in 1989 by Barney O’Grady with Dean Hiss’s help. Tim was club President in 2003/04 and has been very active in the club over the years and was our Sertoman of the Year in 2006.

Dr. Tim has also been doing work on helping people who have Phobias and says it only takes a few minutes with outstanding results. He works out of his house so give him a call. (303) 972-0714 Listen to Tim Pollak.mp3

Program:  Doug Harder introduced our speaker today, Robert Rhodes, who is a Department Service Officer for the American Legion. Robert had some great information for Veterans that are either already signed up with the VA or needing information on if they qualify or how to qualify. A lot of the rules and requirements have change lately so you may want to contact Robert and see what’s new. 720-949-1848 or at:

Robert had tons of info so it’s best if you just listen to his talk.     Listen to Robert Rhodes.mp3
