news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:    Dick Mason gave an update on his life and a few other tid bits. Dick, a Life Member, was born 11/12/45 in Quincy, Ill. The Mississippi River was next to his hometown. Three High Schools in town and he didn't graduate from any of them, he even tried to go to the all girls school.

After being suspended from high school one too many times, he joined the Marine Corp. While in the Marines, he received his GED. Dick served almost four years and was an E-5 when discharged. He has a trip to Viet Nam and Hawaii on his military resume (plus a memorable time spent on a ship for a month in the harbor).

After getting out of the service, Dick married JoAnn 48 years ago, they met in study hall. He worked a little, then went back to Glendale Community College in Phoenix, where he graduated and then got a scholarship to DU. That plus the GI bill and his hard work got him through school by March of '72. Now a CPA (that does not stand for Cleaning, Pressing & Alterations), his firm was acquired and he has moved on to bigger and better things. As of now Dick is retired.

The Mason’s have three kids, sons Bryan and Brandt, along with daughter Brandi and there are two grandkids total. Rick Jacobus brought Dick into the club about 23 years ago and he has served in a number of offices and is a Past President and Gold Coat recipient.

Program:  Bob Schlageter stood in for the missing Randy Smith and introduced Lori Adams who works for ADCO Hearing Products Inc.

Lori brought a few samples of their products and described how they work. She even passed one around for all the hard of hearing members in attendance to try out.

In the early 1950's, a hearing aid dispenser by the name of Carl Hoffman founded Acousticon Hearing Aids of Denver. Through his own experience and dispensing practice, Carl realized there was a need for an "On-the Spot” solution for ear molds and modifications. Since patients typically lived many miles from hearing aid dispensers, most specialists had to make house calls, driving several miles to test and fit clients for a hearing aid. After the mold came back from the lab, it often didn’t fit right. There was also a pressing need for a temporary ear mold and for modifying the fit of an ear mold or hearing aid.

Hoffman’s first product, ADCOmold was developed to allow hearing healthcare professionals to make an instant ear mold. Because ADCOmold became the client’s permanent mold, without the intervening process of factory manufacturing, the fit was always perfect. The first of its kind in the industry, ADCOmold was patented and soon began to gain world-wide attention. The products to follow, ADCObuild, ADCOaddon, ADCOment and ADCOsheen were also created for the same purpose of providing instant and on-the-spot solutions for repairs and modifications. Carl named his new products and company ADCO (short for Acousticon Denver Company).
