news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY: 

Dean Hiss once again shared his story of life. Born July, 1926 on a wheat farm in S. Central Kansas near Kingsdown, KS. Dean was a farm kid, milking cows, slopping hogs gathering eggs etc. His mother was known as the “Chicken Assassin” because of all the chickens she killed and cooked up. She could pluck a chicken faster than anyone else around. As a youth, Dean would drive and tractor in the wheat field going 2 mph. Then he upgraded to a newer tractor and it went 7 mph.

Dean graduated from H.S. in 1945, was in the Navy during WWII, and with the GI Bill, went to Washburn University. After graduating in 1951, he came to Denver to visit during the summer with a couple friends and rented a fully furnished house. At some point in his early working career, he was a Fuller Brush Salesman. He went back to Wichita and worked at Boeing a short time. In 1953 he came back to Denver and got married. He worked for Midland Federal & Savings and Littleton Federal which has changed its name a couple times over the years. In 1971, Dean went into the appraisal business.

Dean went back to Kansas a short time back and went through Greensburg where the tornado about whipped the town off the map. He had some pictures of the area, there wasn’t much left to see except a few foundations. This was about 25 miles from Dean’s home town.

Dean has 2 sons, one in Durango and the other in Arvada, and 2 grandsons, about 6 & 3 years old. Dean has been married to Mary for 57 years. Steve Bolyard brought him into the club in Oct. 1965.


Program:  Scott Manley introduced John E. Shell as the guest program today. John is a licensed Psychologist with 20 years experience helping people make the changes that make a difference.  He came today to ask the question “If money can’t buy you happiness, what can?” Your grandmother was right, money can’t buy happiness. He said it looked like Sertomans were already happy, just for showing up and doing things in the community and having satisfaction that we are doing something.

John Shell

This casual, interactive presentation draws on the latest research about what contributes to abiding fulfillment and happiness.  He makes the scientific principles come alive by means of stories and exercises.

He covers the evidence that more money doesn’t make us happier. He introduces the changes we can make from the inside out to reset our “Happiness Thermostat”.  He shows people how to identify their “signature strengths” and then how to use that information to develop greater control and focus in their lives..

My name is Spencer Green and I am a Clinical Research Director at the University of Colorado Cancer Center, as well as, the Vice President of a Colorado Non-Profit called Progress for Prostate.  I spoke with Bob Hogge today about adding our next prostate cancer support fundraiser information to your next SERTOMA newsletter, and he asked me to send the information to you.  We are holding our 2nd annual Father’s Day Brunch at Brauns, on June 15th.  The food last year was phenomenal, and the price is very reasonable.  The proceeds from the event will be used to support the Colorado “Man to Man” and Us Too” prostate cancer support groups.  For more information on P4P and the event…please see the attached mini-flyer and web links (below).  Please, feel free to contact me directly if you need any further information
