Jim Perkins introduced Ms. Karel Horney – She was honored with the Service to Mankind award.
Karel is the Executive Director of Adam's Camp.

Adams Camp. Provides a camp for children with disabilities.
Colorado ranks pretty much at the bottom when it comes to offering services to people with disabilities.

They help to fill that gap by helping developmentally disabled children the tools to excel.

http://www.adamscamp.org Instead of bringing kids from the eastern part of the U.S., Adam’s Camp is expanding the program to the east coast, in New Hampshire. They have approved their first $1,000,000 budget this year. This is a program that has its roots as a five family excursion to Snow Mountain Ranch in 1986.

It was funny as hell, you had to be there. (maybe Doug with send it to me to be included).

“Joe Dowdy, you're a good man, and congratulations.”

Joe is currently the Lt. Governor for the Sertoma Foundation.

Mike Ballew won the Pot of Gold and donated it to Adams Camp.

Movie review:


Attached is the latest FRAUD ALERT from the District Attorney, "Not Worth the Paper It's Written On."  Your assistance in sharing this information with your organization will be greatly appreciated.
I am currently looking for volunteers who will be liaisons between the District Attorney's Fraud Prevention Program and local communities in the 18th Judicial District (Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert and Lincoln Counties).  Persons chosen will be given training and will represent and help promote the fraud prevention program in their communities.  If you or someone you know would like to receive training in fraud prevention, and would have from 2-4 hours per week to promote our fraud prevention efforts, please contact me at 720-874-8487.  Volunteers would set their own schedules and would work from home.

Corporate Lesson 5:
A turkey was chatting with a bull. "I would love to be able to Get to the top of that tree," sighed the turkey, but I haven't got the energy."
"Well, why don't you nibble on my droppings?" replied the bull. "They're packed with nutrients."
The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree.
The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.
Finally after a fourth night, there he was proudly perched at the top of the tree.
Soon he was spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey.

Moral of the story:
Bullcrap might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.
