Sertoman of the Day:    Bob “Bucky” Buckland: Born June of 1932 in Hartford, CT Hospital, 1-1/2 miles from the CT River. He was the 5th of 6 kids. Bob graduated from Hall High in W. Hartford and the school is still standing. He attended undergraduate school at the Univ. of CT 1950-1956 interrupted by 2 years in the U.S. Navy as a Radioman (51-53) He said he could copy Morse code at about 85 wpm. Bob mentioned a time he was stationed in Alaska and on a simulated invasion drill, WE LOST. Thanks Bob.

Bob was a Group Rep for Prudential Insurance Co. 1956-1958. On 11/30/57 Bob married Betty and they have three children, Mac, Toddie & Freddie, all of them married now. Bob and Betty have 7 grandchildren and 8 GG-grandkids. Betty was a nurse. Recently, Bob reached his 83rd birthday and is the only living child of his late parents, survived Prostate Cancer and celebrated the birth of another great grandson.

Bob left Prudential and went to the Univ. of Conn. School of Law 1958-61 and was admitted to the Conn. Bar July 1961. He was an Atty. for Conn. Mutual Live from 1961 to 1964. Bob and Betty then moved to Denver in 1964 to go into sale for Conn. Mutual. He is still associated with its successor, Mass. Mutual but is “partly retired” now.

Dick Sorensen brought Bob into the Lodo Club but since they didn't have many members in the club, Bob liked the size of the Arapahoe Club and moved over to it.    Listen to Bob Buckland.mp3

Program:  Joe Gomez introduced Carol Huserik, along with Dr. Don Gerber and Corky Zygowicz. They work and/or volunteer at Craig Hospital and A-1 Scuba and came today to tell us about their program to get people with spinal cord injuries into the water and take up scuba diving and some other programs they host. They are having their annual A-1 Scuba Raffle May 20 & 21 this year and we as a club help them sell tickets.

At the moment, this is our only fund raising event and our portion in the past has gone to Craig Hospital and their adaptive equipment programs. Several past and present club members have worked at Craig and have many warm, heart felt stories to tell.    See and hear the video of their presentation. Colorado’s Largest Scuba Event!
