Guests:   Alice Perkins, Jim’s wife

FINES:   Manley, Mason & Benton were all fined for one thing or another.

Birthdays:  Jim Rees had a birthday last week so he got a song sung just for him. Bob Buckland is coming up VERY soon.

Announcements:   You can tell that the end is near for the current administration, the business part of the meeting was pretty short. Buckland has one more meeting as president, then he moves up to bigger and better things.

We ended up getting 4 members to play the 9-hole golf tournament that Southglenn is holding June 26th at the Southglenn Country Club, Address: 1489 E Easter Ave, Centennial, CO 80122.
It’s on a Monday, registration at 3pm and there will be free beer and wine during the event with dinner and a silent auction afterward. Cindy took over selling the event, explaining it is a fund raising event with the money (every penny) going to Rosie’s Ranch and Aspen Camp School For the Deaf (two organizations we have donated to).
Listen to this for details


news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:   Dr. Elsey resembled Santa Clause (without the red suit and beard) when he walked into the room with bags and bags of goodies for kitties. He had care packages of his new line of products, cat food, and everyone got one that wanted one.

The Cat Dr., Dr. Bruce Elsey, was greeted with a room full of “MEOWS”. He opened with this: He was born on Sept 11, 1951 in Garden City, KS (five generations). Went to H.S. there and it is still standing. The river that runs through it is the Arkansas (pronounced Ar Kansas. With a draft number of 23, Bruce just missed being called into the service in the early 70’s because Viet Nam was winding down and Saigon fell.

Bruce married Kathleen in 1976 and graduated from Vet school in 1977. They have twin sons born in 1982 and graduated from KS St. They are both married now and so far there are 6 grandkids. Bruce now owns the cat clinic but is semi-retired and sells cat litter.
He mentioned Garden City had the largest outdoor concrete swimming pool that was free until they added things like a slide and now charge to use the facility.

The cat litter business is doing good with a new facility in the works to handle railroad loading/unloading (from the BNSF of course).
