THIS WEEK IN REVIEW ....Jun 26, 2014
This weeks Reporter- Don Smith

news_l3.gif   Bob Stein        Norm Schillo      news_l5.gif     Rev. Robinson  

Guests:    Past member Jim Britton was introduced by Norm. Rev. Robinson, making up for not being to lunch for a few weeks, introduced Bryn Boyer.

Fines:  And of course the much admired and revered Rev. Robinson was fined, not just 25¢ but double that.

Announcements:  Scott Manley (you know Scott, he is….was our President for the past year) finished his tenure as President of Arapahoe Sertoma and was given a standing ovation. Scott faced many hardships running the club for 12 months and also filling in for Peter Pauwels as Chairman of the Board (Peter is in Montana still). Well done Scott. Scott did mention he really enjoyed the past year, he had a lot of fun……Well Scott, we are always looking for someone to take over that job, be carefull what you say.

Scott read from some info he received from National about a bunch of money they have given out as scholarships and other hearing related projects.

Starting next week, the incoming President is Bill Benton (who will pass out tooth picks?) Good luck to Bill and all his helpers.

Scott read a post card that the club received from Grove City College and addressed to a John Vierthaler. Apparently John made such a spectical of himself last time he was there that they don’t want him to come back. Signed by the President of the school.

The Annual District Confrence and Awards Banquit is coming up and we have been asked to help host it so a special Board meeting was held after the regular meeting.

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


news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:  Cliff Metsker, you know Cliff, he comes each time it’s his turn to be the SOD……returned again today to share his life story and any other tid bits he can think of.

Cliff Metsker was born south of Nashville, TN in 1951. Cliff’s mother flew back to the U.S. just so Cliff could be born an American. Cliff and his family lived in Saudi Arabia for his first six years. His dad was a pilot for Saudi Arabia's airline. He had an interesting childhood of ferrying back and forth between Tennessee and Saudi Arabia. After his father was laid off, his family packed up and moved to a very large cattle/dairy farm in the San Luis Valley after a brief stop in TN.

With a twin brother, another set of twins and two other siblings he and his family ran cattle, sheep and various dairy cows on a farm near Center, CO. Graduating from Center High School (which is still standing) he enrolled at CSU (Tractor Tech) – He played Football and Basketball to get his tuition paid. Upon graduation he moved to Dillon, Montana for 6 years and in 1980 went back to Center, CO. He said he really enjoyed the time in Montana.

He left the farm to work for the Marshall Management Produce Company and managed an implement company, he then sold out, got married to Mary in 1987 and moved to Denver (Littleton to be exact) and opened a State Farm insurance agency. He is now a broker/agent for Farm Bureau Insurance with offices in Lakewood and Broomfield. John Pifer signed him up.

Cliff has no children, but he does have 5 brothers and sisters. He has a twin brother who is a tall, goofy fellow that looks nothing like him. His mother is still alive at 93 and still driving but his dad passed away 2 years ago. He enjoys skiing, golfing, fishing and fine literature. There was no military; he said he would have made to big of a target. Listen to Cliff Metsker.mp3

Program:  Bob Schlageter introduced author Mark Hardcastle and his talk today was “Painting the Masterpiece of Your Life”. Mark wrote a book “The Symphony of Your Life” which just came out last month of which he had copies for sale after the meeting and he donated 20% of what was sold at that time to the club.

Author Mark Hardcastle recognized years ago that patterns were developing around events in his life. Good things happened. Bad things happened. Sometimes very good, sometimes very bad. But in the end, everything always seemed to work out. Was that just a matter of chance? Or was it something he could rely on?

After several years of journaling about that reality, Mark broke his neck in a mountain biking accident near Moab, UT. An event like that has the effect of powerfully focusing one's attentions. And now, almost two years later, Mark has written a book about his life experiences and he travels around the country speaking to groups of all sizes about how the Wheel Of Fortune turns, and how we can create great lives.

Mark graduated from the USAF Academy in 1982. After nine years as a pilot on active duty, he left the military to join a commercial airline. In addition to flying B-777s around the world, Hardcastle invests in real estate and enjoys spending time in the Rocky Mountains and serving on the artistic staff of the Colorado Children’s Chorale. He lives in Centennial, Colorado, with his wife and four children.
