This weeks Reporter-Don Smith

Guests:  Bob Buckland introduced his wife, Betty.

Fines:   Of course, we will have to start off by fining Buckland for subjecting his wife to such a rowdy group and for his cheapness, that cost him $2.00. Also, Table one for having a guest, fine to the table with the 3-stooges (Benton’s table) for talking to much or something like that; A fine to The King for his excruciating long speech for which no one can remember what it was about anyway:

Announcements:    Bill Kohlmeier passed away. We wish the family our best at this time.

Joe Dowdey is home…..He did not have “cat scratch fever” according to our Cat Doc.

Mike Magee announced the new Foundation Board officers and members. Pres. Is Combellick; VP is Magee and Sec./Trea is Duncan with Nelson and Buckland rounding out the group.

Oh, thank goodness I took notes, I do remember what The King was trying to say, it had something to do with Freedom Dogs, taking a tour of their place (without the good looking chic) and a sign-up sheet will be passed out next week. The tour will take place shortly after our meeting, Aug 16th and it’s location is at 2800 W. Union.

Acting President (again) Ken Kelley tried to read a Thank You letter from Craig Hospital but was rudely interupted by some very impolite members. Ken did manage to say that we were thanked for our help in raising $5,815 in the A-1 Scuba Progaram. He also mentioned that A-1 has moved to 1603 W. Belleview Ave., Littleton, thats at the corner of Windemere St. and Belleview Ave.

Phil mentioned the Bill Parchen Golf Tournament Aug. 7th with sign-up sheet going around.

Dick Enslow says the BIG Golf Tournament totals are still out because they are still adding and subtracting the numbers and paying the bills. Our 22nd Annual tournament for Aug 28 is open to guests because Dick would like to have at least 20 players and he isn’t there yet.

Jim Rees says the Pancake Breakfast took in about $980….. Harder gave a “Great job guys” salute…. Also, Jim said last month was the best month so far on the King Soopers discount card income at about $319.50.

Dick Mason shocked us all with his startling statement: “The Rockies are not going to make post season”.

Jim Rees announced that he is out of the new discount cards but can get more if you need one. The club receives 5%. Important info about the cards, don’t let your balance be zero for more than 30 days or the card becomes no good. It’s easy to reload the card, if you have any questions, talk to Rees.


news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:

Sertoman of the Day:   Jim Helmick was startled to learn he would be the SOD today. Jim was born in Toledo Ohio on August 11, 1936, on the banks of the Maumee River. At the age of 19 he enrolled into the University of Toledo and 10 years later received his degree in Electrical Engineering. In the meantime, he got married and fathered 3 children who have produced so far 7 grandchildren. While in night school, he worked at a large hardware store from 54-60, and at Toledo Scale from 60-64. His work caused him to travel a lot, going to Texas, Alabama, Nebraska, Iowa, New Jersey, California and Colorado. Jim was born between wars and although he did register for the draft, he was not called.

He started working for Johns Mansville in 1965, George Hannes hired him in Ohio. In 1974 he had to choose between staying married or moving to Colorado. Since his wife wished to stay in Toledo with the kids and grand kids, and since it is obvious that Jim is here in Colorado, the choice is clear. Jim later remarried and is now married to Barbara, his wife of 35 years and he has 2 daughters and a son plus about 7 grandkids. Jim held various positions with J.M. including director of fiber glass research and director of marketing. After spending sometime in California in the minerals division, Jim left J.M. in 1990 and returned to Colorado in 1998. Rich Carlson brought him into the club in 1998. Listen to JimHelmick.mp3
