Guests:    Alice Perkins, Jim’s wife

FINES:  The four members that represented Arapahoe Sertoma in the Englewood Chamber (George Allen) Golf tournament were fined for “Poor club representation”. They were: Dick Enslow, Bob Buckland, Mike Magee and Bill Benton. Between them they represent 322 years of golf. No wonder they had Highest Gross Score but they said they had fun and that is all that counts.

Birthdays:   Jim Rees and Bob Buckland coming up next week.

Announcements:  Chad Kasson, our newest member, has already been mentioned to be our next club President. Hey, we move fast around here.

The Board discussed the possibility that we not participate in this year’s Western Welcome Week. The main reason was the poor location they assigned us last year. We are asking them if they can give us a better spot or we may not do it this year.

Bill has 1 more weeks and he says it won’t be here soon enough. The date for the upcoming Installation Dinner is June 23. That is a Thursday at the Red Rocks. If you haven’t paid up yet, see Mike Magee.

There will NOT be a lunch that day, June 23rd.

Here is the list of new Officers for the upcoming year: Go to 2016-2017 Officers list.txt

June 25 is the Leadership workshop conference and they would like at least 4 members from each club to attend. Tim and Bob said they would, anyone else is welcomed. Time: 8:30am to 4pm. And it’s at the Lowery Conference Center.

Aug 21st is the 5th Annual John Elway golf tournament. If interested, see Bill. $125 to play.

Remember, if you bring in a new member and he stays 6 months, you get Free Dues - per new member for a quarter. A couple members just qualified for this perk.


news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:    Bob Stein said we have all read or heard his bio so he gave a little history of the club and when he was the President and Gold Coat recipient. Bob is a Denver native, is the oldest of five kids and has been up here since 1974, giving his life history. Bob is married to Diane with 50 years under his belt, has one daughter, one son-in-law and one grandchild (keeps it simple that way). Gary Castle got him into Sertoma. Bob has been past President (86-86) – Gold Coat, and past District Governor in 1989. Back then, there was only one District with 17 clubs which kept him busy trying to visit all of them on a timely manner.

Bob decided to enlisted in the Navy in 1960 instead of finishing college and took training to be a Fire Control Officer (they don’t put out fires, they compute all kinds of things before firing the big guns). About half way through that he got into submarine school. The first part of the training was to learn about every system on the boat. He was able to get duty in Pearl Harbor. He was assigned to the third nuclear sub ever built, the USS Seadragon SSN-584. He then got to go back to school to learn the fire control systems on a new sub in Long Beach. Bob figured out that the more schools he went to, the less time he would be on a ship. He was the junior member of the crew so he was almost an E-5 but still got stuck with mess duty (this was around 1961).

This was during the cold war so their duty was to keep an eye on the Russians. The only limit on their duty at sea was how much food they could stuff on board. So he got to go to the North Pole, test weapons, chase Russians, learn to dive, and all other sorts of fun stuff, not to forget that he went around the world about 22 times. He didn’t want to leave Hawaii but he eventually did and came back home and started doing new systems for a new sub. He was then stationed in Spain and got to patrol the Mediterranean. He eventually took the test to go to E-8 and passed, but declined the commission and got out of the service. After the service, Bob started several banks in the area and started a Car Wash with another Sertoman. We just learned the Bob has sold the Car Wash, no wonder there weren’t any quarters on the table.

Program: John Vierthaler introduced Scott Braden from Conservation Colorado. Conservation Colorado is not a government organization but a private group of people that take donations for the purpose of, among other things:

• Ensuring that more than three million acres of wilderness will stay forever wild.
• Setting a statewide renewable energy standard, then increasing it to 30% and making it one of the strongest in the nation.
• Working to minimize impacts from oil and gas drilling by updating public health, drinking water and wildlife protections in 2008 and continuing to push for further reforms.
• Passing more than 130 different conservation bills at the state legislature in the past six years on a host of environmental issues ranging from water efficiency to air quality to energy efficiency to transit.
• Electing pro-conservation candidates and holding our elected officials accountable in the State Legislature, Governor’s Office, and local government councils and commissions.
