Quote of the Day: “A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out” Walter Winchell

Guests: Member Orian Hunter. He will just barely retain his King title since he offered to be the SOD.

Fines:   McKim fined Harder for poor induction training.

Bingo:  64 give or take a couple and a deposit of $7,400. Doug Harder brought out the Stand-by list. If you can’t make it to bingo, get a replacement or let Doug know.

Announcements:   Jim Rees filled in for John V. as President. John was out playing in his field.

Paul Ramadan was honored and installed into the club. He had been a Sertoman before so Welcome back Paul. John Pifer welcomed him with the traditional Ed Bezjak 50cent fine. Paul was born in Palestine and at 10, moved to Jerusalem for school. At 17 he joined the gorillas (poor idea) and at 19, he came to the U.S. He has been married for 58 yrs, has 3 kids and 6 G-kids. He attended CSU and Denver U.

Jim Perkins read a letter he received, congratulating him for being past President…..OOPS, it was meant for Jim Rees.

Young McKim mentioned a Sponsorship idea, Step Up For Cancer. A sign-up sheet was passed and this is for Aug. 2nd.

Jack Marshall informed us that he has to step down from the Ways and Means Committee AND won’t be able to do Bingo until maybe the end of this year. He is having some surgery done. It sure is asking a lot to not be able to do Bingo.

Don Smith read off the requirement for Perfect Attendance.

Orian mentioned Jon Sheptak’s longtime girl friend died recently. Jon was a member a few years back.

Rick Campbell has King Soopers coupons.


news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY: 

Orian Hunter made the mistake of showing up today and was immediately pick as the SOD. Orian Hunter was born in Denver, not to far from the South Platte River but he didn’t mention the date. He went to schools all over the place, including Grad School in Wisconsin. He was a teacher in a couple states.

2 years ago he started working in Kingsburg which gets him home all the time, enough to have a relationship with his 2 grandsons and he found out one of then is like him. He is now on mandatory temporary layoff.
Orian has a Principals License from the U. of Phoenix. He wanted to work for them so he sent his resume in and was hired, along with 75 other applicants. After all the training and classes, I think he said he did not get the job.

Orian’s military consisted of 2 years of Army ROTC. (he wasn’t even sure if it was Army, what do they teach people now a days?). He didn’t seem too disappointed when they asked him to hang up his uniform. The guy that brought him into the club is long gone from the club (I didn’t catch his name).


Program:  Mabe introduced Al Woodward from Woodward Wealth Management Group, Inc. If you remember, last week he graciously stepped aside so Reggie Rivers could be the Program. Al came today not to sell us anything since he isn't taking on any new clients but to talk about weath and fraud.

Al handed out a copy of his rules for investing. It starts…It is terrible that good people lost money (with Madoff and others). But when are good people going to learn to follow the rules?
1. Do not invest in something you do not understand.
2. There is no such thing as a free lunch.
3. Do not stand for low or no disclosure.
4. Be wary of no-name operations.
5. Trust but Verify.
6. Diversify. Diversify. Diversify.
