To: All Soap Box Derby Volunteers and Participants:
After only partially digesting most of what happened over this last weekend or maybe this last eight months, I can only summarize by saying that I am so proud to be part of the outstanding first annual Sertoma Mile High Soap Box Derby.
Everyone involved did such a wonderful job. From Jerry Standar’s “Stupendous Super-star Starters,” all the way down to the “Fabulous Funny Finish Line Fiends,” and everyone else in between, it was nothing short of a fantastic success. Not only did everyone do their job, everyone gave 150 percent effort.
I’m not only proud to be a Sertoman; I am proud of each and every Sertoman that participated in this event. Our sponsors were the best. From the beginning design of the web page by Creative Flavors, to the outstanding generosity and assistance of the City of Littleton, Timberline Plastics, Mike Shaw’s Auto, Mesa Systems, Inc., Jerry Standar’s Collision Works, the grant given to us by the Quick Foundation which put us, financially, right where we had to be, and, of course, the outstanding support and assistance of SCCA, with whom there is no way we could have run this event. It all came together only because of the energetic participation that we received.
Obviously, to try and name each of the very special people would require you to read way too much, and take me all day. Even then, I’m sure I’d miss more than one or two. Each and every volunteer made this event work - you are appreciated. Each participant and their family that raced down that mighty course added to the character and the effervescence of the day. The special “extras” like the Navy Color Guard , the publicity offered by Channel 9, Channel 2, and the Rocky Mountain News all added up to a spectacular race day.
Of course, there are a couple of names that have to be mentioned. Christi and Steve Colvin. (I’ll even throw Becca in there, but only because she’s so cute.) What a dynamic duo. It was their energy and enthusiasm for this event which got it off the ground and kept it going. Great job, guys. And to the committee chairs for the Sertoma Mile High Soap Box Derby: Merritt Sherer, John Atkins, Marty Morgan, Charlene Dame, Jerry Wheeler, and Joyce Peluso; thank you, thank you, thank you.
I’m not forgetting the outstanding efforts by individuals such as Jerry Standar and his crew who created that magnificent ramp; nor the unbelievable involvement by SCCA, Tom Hunsinger, and Arnie Coleman and their crew. Your timing could not have been better - if you know what I mean. I’m so glad to say there’s too many to name.
Once again, all I can say is, I know there was a lot of effort put forth by a lot of people, whether your name was mentioned or not. You are appreciated by the Sertoma Promotion Club, the District Governors, the Sertoma Mile High Soap Box Derby Committee, but most importantly, by each one of the 29 participants and their families racing in the Soap Box Derby. The smile on their faces, I think, says it all. I only hope that each of you enjoyed the day as much as I, and are as proud as I am to be part of such a wonderful event.
