Guests:   Courtney Mann from LoDo Club

Fines:   To the Chair for not asking for Guests.

Announcements:  Courtney Mann, from the LoDo Club, came to tell us about some of the Fund Raising efforts of their club and showed one of the items they sell, a blanket and in the example she brought, it had the Arapahoe Sertoma name and logo imprinted in it. She donated it to our President but he just couldn’t accept such a gift so he donated the money to their club.

Peter ran into Bob Gallagher the other day and he says Greetings to all… Englewood City Parks and Rec. sends their best to Sertoma… Peter wants us to bring guests on the days we have great programs….(we always have great programs). Peter has a vet from WWII scheduled for Feb 7th who fought on Iwo Jima. That should be a very interesting talk so bring someone.

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:   Randy Smith, our resident speech and hearing specialist, is a native of Natchez, Mississippi, being born in 1950, then moving to Louisiana where he attended school. He was a newspaper carrier and a disk jockey (Rock’n Randy’s Electric Radio Show). He earned a bachelor’s degree from N.E. Louisiana Univ. in Monroe, LA. Randy did graduate work at LSU and got a job at McNeese State Univ. He was a speech and hearing consultant for the Special Ed. Dept. After six years there, he wanted to do post graduate work and was accepted to CU. He specialized in speech pathology in neurogenic speech and language problems and voice problems. He came to Colorado to do some graduate work and received a Post Graduate Degree at C.U. He stayed in Colorado he had a job at Porter Hosp. and he met Amie (who worked at Swedish), got married (about a year before joining Sertoma in 1987) and had two children. He was employed by Porter Hospital for 11 years and now in his own private practice since 1990.

Randy brought in a larger than life replica of the human ear and described a little about its workings and all the little hair things in the cochlea called stereocilia. There about 20,000 of these hair things and if about 15,000 of them are damaged, it is said you have hearing damage. You can read all about the cochlea here: Bio of Randy on his web page.
Today’s talk: RandySmith.mp3

Program:   John Vierthaler introduced Rev. Sun East of the First Love Church.

A powerful pastor called by God who has felt the burden from God to bring back the heart of worship to America and the world. The Holy Spirit spoke to her and said, "Take the message of the Holy Spirit throughout the world." Since 2005, this commission has birthed over 225 songs to the Holy Spirit, a series of seminars hosted across the United States, called "The Mysteries of the Holy Spirit," and "The Shepherd's Heart," and the publication of more than twenty one books that release years and years of compiled teaching and her own personal experience with the Holy Spirit of God. She has committed herself to go to even the farthest corners of the earth taking the message of reconciliation and the pursuit of a deeper relationship with the precious third person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit.

My parents and the people around me always told me about my birth. They told me that the whole town prayed to Buddha for my parents to have a daughter, because my parents had four sons, but no daughters. When they finally received a daughter, everyone in town rejoiced and gave thanks to the Buddha god. No one in our town knew the truth, that life came from Yahweh God. No one ever talked about Jesus. Even at a young age I knew there was a god but I didn't find God. Even though I went to a Christian high school I didn't find Him.

In 1976 I moved to the United States where I became a citizen. When I first came to the USA I was totally lost and still searching for something. I was empty, lonely, and miserable. From time to time I would pray, saying, "Jesus if you are God or Buddha if you are god, I don't care, whoever gives me more I will serve you."   Listen to Rev. Sun East.mp3
