Announcements:   Bob (Mr. President) Buckland is back….must be due to the good weather.

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. They will be a little less Mexican but with a good variety of foods and the price is to stay the same. This will take place in several weeks and we want to wish Jeannie the best and thanks.

Tim gave me a list of receipents of our Foundation donations for 2016:

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.

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.

Super Bowl Pool winners: Magee, Fry, Bennett & Combellick

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:   Young Pat McKim was born in York, PA in 1968. He was the last of 4 kids and in 1970; his parents moved the family to Littleton so he went to Littleton public schools. Rick Jacobus and Sam Anderson got him into the club with some arm twisting. Pat has known Rick a long time and grew up with Rick and Doug’s kids.

Pat graduated in 1991 from CU Denver with a degree as a certified financial planner and has worked at that profession for the past 20 years or so. He recently changed companies and is now located in Cherry Creek North and has a fabulous secretary. The name of his company is Prospera Wealth Management Solutions LLC.

Pat has served every position in the club except secretary and has been a bingo captain for about 10 years. He figures with his young age, he has brought the average age of the club DOWN to 65. Pat welcomed Chad to the club. Chad is now the youngest member.

He is single, has never been married and has no kids (as far as he knows, he says he doesn’t answer the door on Father’s day). His hobbies include everything that takes him where the ladies are, riding dirt bikes and mountains bikes and was in Leadville a couple years ago racing at 10,000 feet plus and passed Lance Armstrong in the race (in opposite directions, Pat finished 4 hours behind Lance). He has no military service. He grew up on the Platte River and his High School, Heritage High, is still standing. His dog El Guapo died 3 years ago but he has another one now, named The Cisco Kid…(don’t ask). Listen to Pat McKim.mp3   Pat's work e-mail is:  pmckim@prosperawealthllc.com

Program:  Mike Magee introduced Rose Keating who owns Tech For All.

The Tech for All Mission
Tech For All makes available to individuals in the community the means to become skilled and competent in computer use; we do this by gathering donations, collecting and reconditioning used equipment, identifying qualified recipients and placing the appropriate equipment with them solely for their use and at no charge.

What Differentiates Tech for All?
Tech for All charges NO administrative or service fees to recipients of computers. Nearly 10,000 have been given to individuals, not one recipient has spent 1¢ with T4A to acquire their PC.

Cost = $0. The ONLY THING we ask is to meet the recipient (not a parent, not a friend, not a truck driver). These meetings REWARD and ENERGIZE our volunteers.

Also, Tech for All recycles in the Denver community so there is no shipping, and therefore no shipping charges, involved.

Tech for All has gone international. Through our relationship with African Bold Leaders (boldleaders.com), 30 leaders have returned to Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya with their computers.

We have also sent 60 'freshened' computers to a college lab in a Burundi community through the Tech for All relationship with the Colorado Coalition for African Empowerment in April 2011. These computers were FULLY FUNCTIONAL with monitors, keyboards and "mice." Another 176 computers found their way to Burundi in September 2011.

And in metro Denver, FIVE students a week at Littleton High School received home computers that are coordinated with their school computer system. Bradley International School students are also receiving home computers. http://denvertechforall.org/     Listen to Rose Keating.mp3
