news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:  Mike Magee took a very low key, enjoyable approach to the task at hand by giving a simple review of all the life events he has shared with the club on many occasion. He then went on to promote http://www.9healthfair.org/ with their spring season April 17 through May 2nd. He strongly suggested the Blood Chemistry Screening which looks at 28 levels of information for $35 but you can get much more tested, some free, some at a nominal cost..

Born in 1938. Mike completed his education at the University of Colorado. 1989 was a big year for Mike as he began two major commitments. He married Barbara and joined Arapahoe Sertoma. He feels both were good choices. No military. Mike was brought into the club by Mabe Downey – no indication that Mabe also brought Mike to Barbara.

Mike Magee was born 1939 in Houston but grew up in Chicago starting at about age 2. He can remember looking out his window and seeing the Troop Trains. He went to school in the Chicago area, then came out to C.U. in 1957, got a degree in marketing, then went back to Chicago and sold shoes for 9 years with the Florshiem Shoe Co. He liked Denver so well he came back and tried selling shoes here. He got tired of the flying and driving back and forth with the shoe business so he got into real estate back in 1972, then later with his wife, Barb.

Mike and Barb have been happily married 22 years. They have a daughter 45 and a son 45. Barb had 2 daughters before they met and now, there are a combined total of 7 grandkids. Mike retired about 17 years ago so they bought a sail boat and sailed around the Gulf and Atlantic for several years, enjoying it very much. They ended up selling the boat and returning to Colorado.

Mike has no military, something about having kids at the right time and being in college.

Mike is a past president of 1993/94 and has a Gold coat, with the help of Bill Anderson and a couple other members. Mabe brought him into the club.

Mike reviewed is early work experiences involving Selling flower seeds, setting bowling pins, and washing cars as a youngster, In College he sold clothes in various stores while attending night school at Cu. He currently has a Handyman Business. Listen to Mike Magee.mp3

Program:  Bob Schlageter introduced Barry Charelle who has made several trips to a village in Uganda. Barry belongs to ChristAid, Intl. and his last trip was to help set up a brick making machine.

While on a mission trip to help with the Shelters Project, Barry developed a love and concern for the people of Uganda, especially the children at ChristAid Academy. He was, however, shocked by the unsanitary conditions of the ChristAid Academy rest rooms. They are just outhouses with a hole cut through the cement floors. The children walk into them, often with bare feet. He was also concerned by the insufficient lighting in the classrooms.

Although there are windows on two sides of the classrooms, the lighting is inadequate for study and learning.

Furthermore, the ChristAid Academy has a computer lab equipped with computers, but their only power source is a small gasoline generator. Providing electricity for the school would significantly enhance the children’s ability to learn as they use today’s technology. The Lord placed on Barry’s heart

that something needed to be done about both situations and that he was the one to do it. Thus he investigated the possibility of installing both a sanitary sewer system and a solar power system at the school. Although final engineering is not complete, plans are being developed and funds are being raised for both systems. These plans will start with sending EMI, a mission engineering firm, to Uganda to study the need and make recommendations. Funds needed to build the sanitary sewer system and the solar power system are being raised. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

If you would like to make contributions to these projects for the school, please send gifts to Christ Aid and identify your gift for the sewer and/or solar projects.
