Guests:    Alice Perkins, Jim’s wife: Rick Campbell introduced his Grandson (a future Sertoman), but I missed his name.

FINES:  Rick was fined for subjecting his grandson to such a rowdy group.

Birthdays:  n/a

Announcements:   Next week is the Officers Induction Lunch (June 15)Wives and guests invited and it’s at the Elks club with a special meal from Bennett’s BBQ. The idea of having it here was the cost, location and convenience for more to attend. One thought was that by saving a little money on this event, we could apply that money to the Christmas party.

Doug Harder gave an update on Rev. Robinson who had been in the hospital with pneumonia but his home now.

Bob Buckland informed us about a couple issues with his family. The good news was Bob’s oldest Grandson’s wife just had another child which makes Bob a Great Grandfather seven times. The bad news was a Granddaughter dove off a dock and broke her neck. She has had surgery but it’s too soon to know how her recovery will go.

Don gave an update on the motorcycle spill Pat took last night. We were returning from riding at Rampart on Hwy 67, a paved road and Pat’s bike must have caught the edge of the new pavement and oil and it threw him down. He had surgery on his right wrist, has a cast and can’t ride for 12 weeks. (The girls can rest a bit easier now, Pat only has one hand to work with).


news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:   The birth of Carl Duncan in 1930, like Fred Downs, ushered in the Great Depression. Carl’s parents were school teachers who maintained employment during this era in small rural schools. They met and were married in Burlington. Carl was born in 1930 in Alamosa and 2 weeks later, the family moved to Cortez, CO. and was there his first 6 years of his life. The family moved to the coal mining community of Oak Creek in 1936 where the main form of entertainment was tackle football with or without pads.

In 1940 they relocated to Avondale, a gentle farm community 15 miles east of Pueblo on the Arkansas River where the main form of entertainment was softball. Carl mentioned that per capital, Avondale is the murder capital of the U.S. with 2 murders and a population of 350. In playing softball, Carl’s first painful learning experience was to catch a fly ball with the hands rather than in the chest like a football. Duncan obtained a BA degree from the Univ. of Colorado and was drafted during the Korean War into the 101st Air Borne, was a Company Clerk and was sent to Germany because he could speak the language. He had 5 months of heavy weapon training but ended up playing the French horn in the band.

Carl recovered from the warped mentality instilled by the liberals at CU and obtained an MBA degree form DU and became a CPA, using the GI bill. In 1962 he settled in Denver and was unleashed as a CPA on an unsuspecting public. Carl was brought into the club June 2003 by Steve Bolyard. Carl was married in 1957 to ?? (He never says) they have 3 kids and 8 G-kids. Listen to Carl Duncan.mp3

Program:   Today we finally handed over the Service To Mankind winners plaque to our Front Range District winner, Doug Jackson. Don Smith introduced Doug who is the CEO of Project C.U.R.E. Doug is always a very entertaining speaker and this time covered several subjects but what was most on his mind was Moms & Babies.

In part from his handout: “Too many Kenyan babies do not live to celebrate their first birthday. Her excellency Margaret Kanyatta, the first lady of Kenya was Project C.U.R.E.’s 2015 First Ladies Honoree, and she is committed to changing this tragic health trend.

Her “Beyond Zero” Health Campaign is working to strengthen the health infrastructure in her country. At Project C.U.R.E.’s 2016 First Lady’s Luncheon in Phoenix, Arizona in March, Mrs. Kenyatta shared her vision to eliminate HIV infections among Kenyan children..”

Project C.U.R.E. is a none profit organization that collects medical supplies from all around the U.S. and ships several containers of these items a week to over 130 nations that are in much need of such supplies. Project C.U.R.E. works with the local and national leaders of the countries to arrange for the supplies without all the normal ship/receiving problems you would normally encounter. Each container holds about $500,000 worth of equipment and costs about $20,000 to ship. You can read a lot more about Project C.U.R.E. here:
