Scotts quote of the week:   A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.  by George Bernard Shaw

Doug Harder didn’t really want to tell us the facts but the Chamber golf outing last week apparently didn’t go to well for our three players (and one no-show) BUT they had fun.

Doug also gave us an update on Dave Penland who received hearing aids worn by Joe Geers and donated by his widow. Randy Smith fitted Dave and they were a perfect fit. Dave was a member several years back.

July 4th falls on a Thursday and there will NOT be a lunch that day.

Orian returned from Wisconsin to remind us of the up-coming “Installation Banquet” to be held at Red Rocks Country Club, June 28th. Drinkies start at 5pm and Eaties start at 6pm. Price per person is $22 (your saving $9 each because the club is picking that up). We would like to have at least 40 sign up, you can bring a guest, your wife etc.

The Soap Box Derby was a success but Tim didn’t have any numbers to give us since the monies went directly to the Derby. Saturday was a bit slow but Sunday was good and Tim wanted to thank all that showed up to help. City of Aurora did a nice channel 8 piece on our race last week end.
Next years schedule can be found at:

The next event for the Lemonade Stand is Western Welcome Week in Aug.

Bezjak updated us on the Charity Golf Tournament Booze Globe which is auctioned off. We need more bottles. See Bezjak for further info (you can also bring money and Apple Jack with give us a good deal on the booze). Need more sponsors and silent auction items. Contact Miley for info.

Enslow informed us of the Charity Golf meeting to be held at Pinehurst tonight.

Ken Kelley mentioned the Free Englewood Concert tonight held at the Englewood Civic Center; he is one of the hosts. For future concerts, goto:

Happy B-day to Jim Rees.

There is a District Leadership Conference coming up July 27th.

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

Program:   Tim Pollak introduced Bob Cooley who is the Field Representative/Placement Counselor for International Hearing Dogs.

Bob was born in Denver but schooled in Durango. With a Bachelor of Arts in Radio Communications and more than ten years of experience working in veterinary clinics across Colorado, Bob was an obvious choice for IHDI. In his 16th year, his diverse background has enabled him to take on a variety of responsibilities at IHDI. In addition to his work as a placement counselor bringing hearing dogs to their new owners, he is also the primary spokesperson for the organization. Bob and his demonstration dog, “Cami” travel to many demonstrations and conventions across the country each year to speak about IHDI. During these demonstrations and conventions, hearing and hearing-impaired individuals are shown how and what Hearing Dogs do for those with hearing loss.

They are having a 5K Run/Walk (Walk, Run and Wag) Sat., July 13th. Goto: for all the details.    Listen to Bob Cooley.mp3
