Guests:   Bryn Boyer, guest of Rev. Robinson who had to make it a point to mention that she was “his” guest.

Fines:   To the Chair for starting the meeting 2 minutes early. Also, Peter got a bit cocky and fined 3 members for putting 2012 on their attendance slip….problem was, he was one of the three, plus Fry and Schillo.

Announcements:   Board Meeting notes can now be read via the “Board” button at the top of the web version of this Newsletter.

President Pauwels read a couple Thank You letters the club received, Doctors Care, Friends of Man and Michele H. Listen to Michele’s letter.mp3 . It was mentioned that when we respond to Thank You letters, we ask if they have members that would like to join our club and if we are doing fund raising events for them that they provide help. This will be taken up at the Board Meeting later today.

Jim Rees gave the totals for last month’s the King Soopers program, we bought $7,500 worth of credit and we received $375 for the club.

Dave Miley, listening to a golf tournament in Phoenix, heard this: "I am sorry Nick Faldo couldn't be here this week. He is attending the birth of his next wife." Or was it “He is attending his next wife’s birth”?

Dick Enslow has no date for our Annual Fall Classic Golf Tournament for either 2013 or 2014 but they will probably fall somewhere around August. He also mentioned he has received the 2013 Bingo Raffle License so we are ready to start hosting again immediately ( sure we are ).

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:   Bob Stein is a Denver native, is the oldest of five kids and has been up here since 1974, giving his life history. Bob is married to Diane with about 49 years under his belt, has one daughter, one son-in-law and one grandchild (keeps it simple that way). Gary Castle got him into Sertoma. Bob has been past President (86-86) – Gold Coat, and past District Governor in 1989. Back then, there was only one District with 17 clubs which kept him busy trying to visit all of them on a timely manner.

Bob decided to enlisted in the Navy instead of finishing college and took training to be a Fire Control Officer (they don’t put out fires, they compute all kinds of things before firing the big guns). About half way through that he got into submarine school. The first part of the training was to learn about every system on the boat. He was able to get duty in Pearl Harbor. He was assigned to the third nuclear sub ever built. He then got to go back to school to learn the fire control systems on a new sub in Long Beach. Bob figured out that the more schools he went to, the less time he would be on a ship. He was the junior member of the crew so he was almost an E-5 but still got stuck with mess duty (this was around 1961). This was during the cold war so their duty was to keep an eye on the Russians. The only limit on their duty at sea was how much food they could stuff on board. So he got to go to the North Pole, test weapons, chase Russians, learn to dive, and all other sorts of fun stuff, not to forget that he went around the world about 22 times. He didn’t want to leave Hawaii but he eventually did and came back home and started doing new systems for a new sub. He was then stationed in Spain and got to patrol the Mediterranean. He eventually took the test to go to E-8 and passed, but declined the commission and got out of the service.

After the service, Bob started several banks in the area, started a Car Wash with another Sertoman. You can hear Bob’s story of the day by clicking here: BobStein 2013.mp3

We are an affordable, compassionate home care agency for family caregivers who want to keep their family members at home rather than choosing a nursing home or assisted living facility.

Asking for help can be hard to do. We know, because we talk to family caregivers like you every day. We know that caring for your senior parents, a family member with Alzheimer’s or dementia or someone injured or convalescing not only requires that you be patient and gentle, providing constant companionship and care, but it takes a lot of time too – time that you probably didn’t have to begin with.
