THIS WEEK IN REVIEW ....March 1, 2007
This weeks Reporter-Don Smith

       Carl Duncan

Guests: One guest (I missed his name)

Fines: A fine was proposed for table #1 because they “NEVER HAVE GUESTS” and they had a guest. Passed.

Some traitor in the group proposed a fine to the whole group because the song was so bad. I don’t know how but it passed.

Announcements: Tim Pollack: Tickets for the Charity Raffle at Columbine C.C. on April 28 th are available.

Well, two weeks without a meeting and we can’t sing the song in unison. The Pledge wasn’t a heck of a lot better. Good thing Carl can say a prayer or the beginning of the luncheon would have been a bust.   I think we are back on a regular schedule, hopefully it wont take long to get our singing voices back.

It was announced that Rich Carlson is awake and doing better. Let's keep him in our prayers.

Bingo: had abt a $6500 deposit.


Rick Campbell (our dent Dr.) gave us a run down on his life. He allowed as how he was born somewhere (Ilgen?) in Illinois in the 1950's.  After a ski vacation in Colorado sometime in the 1970's, he moved to Colorado.  He told Renee he was moving (I guess that meant if she wanted to continue dating him or get married, she better move with him. She did and they did.) They have been married over 30 years (Rick wasn’t sure EXACTLY how many it was).

Rick runs an auto collision repair service close to the Elks' club (which is convenient because of the poor driving abilities of the club).  He has three daughters who have generated 6 grandchildren, 2 of them twins. Rick served our country fearlessly for 2 weeks when Nixon abolished the draft and he got to go home. Rick was brought into the club by Pollak 7 or 8 years ago.   Specificity is not one of Rick's attributes.

Program: Mabe introduced George Hannes, who gave us a little info on the “Space Race” while Sterling was the technical director, working the computer. George has put together a disc with a lot of video on the history of the race to space. Although what was shown was an abbreviated version, he has the complete CD for sale with the proceeds going to the Foundation. Checks in payment for the Space Race should be made out to “Arapahoe Sertoma Foundation” and in the memo area, “Parchen Memorial”.
