Guests:   Alice Perkins, Jim’s wife & Mike Ballew

FINES:   Table 1, Randy Smith & Doug.

Birthdays:  Coming up: Clarke Bennett & Rick Campbell

Announcements:    Buckland couldn’t get out of office fast enough, he wanted a photo of Pat receiving the gavel even though the meeting wasn’t over yet. Thanks for stepping up and being the President this past year Bob, it’s a tough job which is pretty evident since no one is jumping up wanting it. Welcome Pat for being one that went above and beyond the call by accepting the duties for a second time. Let’s all give Pat the support he needs (after all, he only has one good arm…….)

(Actually, it looks like Bob doesn't want to give up the Gavel,
see how hard Pat is pulling on it )

We ended up getting 4 members to play the 9-hole golf tournament that Southglenn hosted. It was 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. Benton, Buckland, Jacobus and Don Smith played, or should I say “hacked” our way through 9 holes. We had fun, free beer and wine and shots, the meal was great and a lot of prizes were handed out.

Joe want to know if a couple members would help him at his new job as Ways & Means Chairman and he got several. Clarke mentioned a couple weeks ago that he needed to know the duties of Incentives, let’s give Clarke a hand as the new Chairman of that duty.


news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:   Dick Enslow was born Jan 23, 1942 in Aurora, Ill., near the Fox River. He went to school in the Aurora area and received a BS in Industrial Engineering. He went to work for Allis Chalmers. He came to Denver in 1973 for a job offer and was amazed at the weather so he moved here. He went to work for Materials Handling, then went into the reverse mortgage business several years ago but after being told they were going to train him at his expense, he retired.

Dick has been married to Carol for 48 years. She did high school teaching, and then computer sales then went to work for a travel company that got bought out by Delta. They had great benefits. She last did student information systems for the Jeffco school district until she retired in April a couple years ago.

Dick has two kids. His daughter, Kedra, who has given Dick his first grandchild. Son Brad is a couple years younger than his sister and was married recently and plays two man sand volleyball “professionally” (about $100 a year).

Dick was drafted when he was 21 but since he had dislocated his shoulder in high school several times he was rejected at the physical, they never contacted him.
Dick has a gift from a college fraternity brother in a hunting accident. A Pheasant flew up between the 2 of them and Dick got most of the shot which is still there. The shot is lead so it doesn't get picked up by the airport x-ray machines but his 2 knee replacements do.

Dick is going to be our Sponsorship/Finance Chairman again for the new fiscal year. He was brought into the club by the honorable Bill Parchen and was President with a gold coat and gone through most chairs. Dick is one of the more active members, always stepping up to work behind the scene on many fund raising events, such as the golf tournaments and in the past, Bingo. Listen to Dick Enslow.mp3

Program:  Doug Harder introduced Melissa Hellmuth, the Marketing and Development Manager for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates).

Currently, there are 16 CASA programs in Colorado, serving 16 of the 22 Judicial Districts.

From 1981-1984, CASA was part of a national demonstration project in conjunction with Rocky Mountain Children's Law Center. The focus was to find the best way to provide effective legal representation for children.

The first CASA program to incorporate in Colorado, CASA of Larimer County, was established in 1984. The next four programs, Voices For Children in Boulder, Advocates for Children in Arapahoe County, Denver CASA, and CASA of Colorado Springs (now CASA of the Pikes Peak Region), followed in short order, and by 1989 the state had five CASA agencies.

Also in 1989, the Executive Directors of these five programs formed Colorado CASA as a statewide coordinating agency.

The next expansion of the network of CASA programs in Colorado was CASA of Pueblo in 1995.

In 1996, Colorado's legislature passed a statute formally authorizing CASA services in Colorado. This law, part of the Colorado Children's Code, includes a description of the CASA volunteer role, and provides authorization for CASA volunteers to work in specific cases, called Dependency and Neglect.

In 1997, two additional jurisdictions, Weld and Mesa Counties, were established with CASA programs. CASA of the Continental Divide joined the network in 1999.

Three more programs were established in 2000, CASA of Jefferson and Gilpin Counties, CASA of Adams County (later to become CASA of Adams and Broomfield Counties) and CASA of the 7th Judicial District, located in Montrose.
