Fines:   Ken was fined for bringing his wife and mother and before it was over, John Vierthaler was fined for being a lawyer and had to give Ken the $1.

Announcements    Dave Miley reminded us about the passing of Joe Geers widow.

It was also mentioned that Orian Hunter is or was in the hospital as of yesterday with pneumonia but may be home by now. Don Nelson is under the weather and didn’t make the lunch today.

He also explained why there were empty envilopes at each possition, it was for the Bronco play off game bet (guess)....for $10, if you have the closest total score of the game, the winner gets 50% of the total and the other 50% goes to Sponsorship.

Rick Jacobus is busy again this year with the Freedom Week event, he passes around the sign-up sheet for the lunch which is Feb. 18th. Arrive a little early to register and lunch is served at 11:30am. Event this year is at Pinehurst C.C. 6255 W. Quincy Ave., Denver.

Rick also said he received a call from Sam Anderson, Sam wanted to let the guys that knew his first wife Joy, she passed away recently. Services at Drinkwine Monday.

Scott has us going to Wind Crest Living Communities for lunch on February 20th. More details and sign up sheet later.

It was brought to our attention that the “Dick” table is in full bloom with 3 Dicks seated.

Scott gave us a little update on the charity golf event with S.W. for this year. They were able to recruit 6 new members and maybe a couple more and may not need or want us this year. More to follow.

Birthday mention goes to Scott, Cliff and Dick Johnson.

Remember, if you bring in a new member and he stays 6 months, you get Free Dues - per new member for a quarter.

Gentlemen-This is the program we are talking and approved for Service to Mankind Award. Iv'e attached the program summary from the meeting on June 27th. The speakers were Nancy Hortman and Sgt. Howard Norman. The organization is Denver A.C.T.S. Ken Kelley would be our club contact and I have a call into Ken. Bill I think Ken can help with additional information and in contacting Nancy to get more specific information. If I can help, let me know. I think this is a real good candidate. Scott

news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:  

Sertoman of the Day:   Jack Thompson showed up for lunch so he got hooked for the roll of SOD. Jack was born in Omaha, NE in 1944 and within 3 months, the family moved to Minnesota, growing up in S. Minneapolis. His high school is now the community center. He says the only thing he did there was that he was on the first varsity ski team they ever had. Skiing on those little hills they had were a joke and he had to wear a mask like you paint with to stay warm and spent more time on the lift then skiing, it just didn’t cut it and after coming to Colorado to ski several times, he later was able to transfer out here with Merrill Lynch. He enjoys it so much he skis every week.

Jack worked his way through school working at a bank and they had a Merrill Lynch office in the building so he would go and watch the stocks and buy the penny stocks and play around a little bit and ended up working for Lynch and they sent him to NY. He was a manage and was in 5 cities in 5 years and he told them he was going to Denver saying he could live here for half of what they were paying him to live in NY and after 3 months, they sent him here and Lynch was his entire career for 39 years until retiring last year. He needed something to do so he joined “us old codgers”. Jack tried to go into the Air Force right after collage but with his allergies they wouldn’t take him.

Jack has 2 children, his daughter is a teacher but enjoys going to school, working on her third degree and his son is in the Air Force and can ski circles around him. Listen to Jack Thompson.mp3
