news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:     Jim Perkins graced us today as our SOD. Jim was born in Warrior, (Birmingham) Alabama in 1946, 34 years to the day after Sertoma International was founded. Jim has lived in Denver since 1950. He attended Abraham Lincoln High School. It is, of course, still standing.

He is a self-proclaimed sports nut. His 2 best sports were bowling and golf, the problem being for either game, the scores were the same. When he was about a year old, he had Polio so that drove him to get involved in anything he could to overcome the handicap. No matter what he was involved in, he always tried too hard to be the best. It could be sports, board games, boy scouts, bible class or any group activity.

He has been married twice, first to T.E.B., and now married to Alice since 1985. He has two children and one adopted. His son served in Iraq but is now back home, he is scheduled to retire soon. His daughter is Joe Dowdey's neighbor. Jim has five grandkids.

Jim worked summers at Elitch Gardens Theme Park, until he wrecked their train. He then worked at the Colorado Department of Highways as a data “collector”, which was a bit more along the lines of a data “modifier”. He then went on to work as a cabinet maker.

Jim’s final and main career was for Norgren where he started as a sub assembler. He worked his way up to be the product manager for the Americas and the Pacific Rim. While working at Norgren he was able to finish his degree and went on to complete an MBA. Then, on March 10th, 1993 he fell down icy steps while attending a trade show in Chicago. He suffered a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, which rendered him paraplegic. He continued to work for Norgren, retiring in 1998.

Jim joined the Arapahoe Sertoma Club in 2003. He was brought into the club by Joe Dowdey and has gone through several chairs and helping whenever and where ever he can.

Program:   Randy Smith introduced Todd McPherson who is the Development Director for Inter-Faith Community Services.

IFCS is probably best-known for its food and clothing banks, which are truly a reflection of our community. Community members – schools, churches, service clubs, businesses and families, donate all the food and clothing.

One of IFCS’s main goals is homeless prevention. Through a variety of resources including financial assistance (rental, utility, mortgage assistance), transitional and off-site housing IFCS is able to help families achieve their housing goals, access more affordable housing or simply help its families maintain their present shelter.

IFCS also has many other programs to help the community-programs for homebound seniors: medical transportation, lunch bunch and grocery shopping help; financial assistance: medical prescriptions, gas vouchers, bus tokens and birth certificates; gift of hearing and sight programs; victim assistance; youth programs including Ready, Set, School!: a program where low-income children are sponsored by groups or individuals and the children receive a brand new outfit (shoes, underwear, clothes, socks, etc.), a new backpack and school supplies to start their school year off on the best foot possible; and Thanksgiving and Holiday Baskets for families and seniors that would not be able to celebrate these holidays without the community’s help.      Listen to Todd McPherson.mp3

At the end of Todd’s presentation, Glenn Combellick presented Todd with a check for $2,000 from the Arapahoe Foundation.
