Orian had to leave early do to family matters.

Norm Schillo’s youngest daughter, Beanie (59yrs old), passed away on the 5th. No plans for a service at this time. Our thoughts and prayers to the family.

Scott read a couple thank-you letters the club received. One from Centennial Elementery School (their food bank program) and the other from Soup for the Soul.

Dave Miley went around the room taking mug shots of most of us to be posted on the club’s Facebook page. He says if you’re not on Facebook, “get with the program”.

Denver area Sertoma clubs are hosting the Celebrate Sound Don’t Walk in Silence walk May 17th and Scott has proposed that Arapahoe club help sponsore the event. More to follow but here is the web site for the event? You can click on Arapahoe Sertoma on the right hand edge to see the Team Page but if you want to donate, give the money to Scott. It seems the web page is very difficult to use to make a donation. This needs to be corrected. Ken and Tim are attending their meeting tonight so this might be addressed.

Remember, if you bring in a new member and he stays 6 months, you get Free Dues - per new member for a quarter.


news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:  

Sertoman of the Day:   The Cat Dr., Dr. Bruce Elsey, was greeted with a room full of “MEOWS”. He open with this: He was born on Sept 11, 1951 in Garden City, KS (five generations). Went to H.S. there and it is still standing. The river that runs through it is the Arkansas (pronounced Ar Kansas. With a draft number of 23, Bruce just missed being called into the service in the early 70’s because Viet Nam was winding down and Saigon fell.

Bruce married Kathleen in 1976 and graduated from Vet school in 1977. They have twin sons born in 1982 and graduated from KS St. They are both married now and so far there are 2 grandkids. Bruce now owns the cat clinic but is semi-retired and sells cat litter.
He mentioned Garden City had the largest outdoor concrete swimming pool that was free until they added things like a slide and now charge to use the facility.

The cat liter business is doing good with a new facility in the works to handle railroad loading/unloading (from the BNSF of course).
