Guests: Elmer Olinger but not any more, he was inducted today.

Elmer just realized what he did by joining this rag tag club.

Fines:  Elmer was promptly fined the customary 50c to make him feel welcome. This guy learns fast, he turned around and fined table 2 and there was a fine to Dick Laskey, something about when he inducted Randy?

Quote:  “Do you realize that the people who gave us golf and called it a game are the very same people who invented the bagpipes and called it music.” Unk.

Please insure our present or incoming governor gets invited. Make sure you'll be able to come.
PS - Nicole, the RRCC banquet manager and I, are working on a three meal choice, a fair price and I'll let you know when we get that.

Will Martinez has King Soopers coupons. The club receives 5% but only 4 people regularly use the service. The card is like a debit card so it’s easy to use.



Rick Campbell filled in for the vacationing Jim Britton. Rick Campbell was born in Elgin, Illinois in 1953. Grew up in Illinois, went to High School at Glenbar West at Hilltop which is still standing. Served in the military for 2 weeks, he was number 5 in the draft. Two weeks prior to reporting for basic, Nixon called off the draft but he did get inducted into the Army. Rick went on to DuPage College in Illinois. Started as an electrical engineer, but did not like the number crunching as much as fixing cars.


Rick went to college for a year. He came out to Colorado on a ski vacation and enjoyed walking around in a tee shirt in the middle of winter (1973) and decided to come out and stay permanently. He had met Renee when he was in High School, they started dating during college and she came along when Rick moved west in 1974. They have been happily married for 35 years and they have 3 girls. The eldest of his daughters is a teacher at Ft. Logan Elementary. The middle child is a nurse at Porter. The youngest is a homemaker due to the recently arrival of twins. Rick and Renee now have 7 grand kids. One of the grand kids was born on 5-5-05.

Rick runs an auto collision repair service which he opened in 1979 and it’s close to the Elks' club (which is convenient because of the poor driving abilities of the club). His dad was in the auto body parts business. He gave Rick a beat up car and told him by the time you get it all fixed up, you will be old enough to drive it. Dr. Tim brought Rick into the club and he as held several chairs including President. Listen to RickCampbell.mp3

Program:   Randy Smith introduced Thomas Tillapaugh, founder of The Denver Street School

America is facing a crisis of unprecedented proportions. Literally 50% of all minority youth are dropping out before graduating from high school. In our urban cores, this number rises to 70%. Concurrently, 80-90 % of all those who are incarcerated are high school dropouts. Simple math shows us that, if something isn't done to intervene, there will continue to grow in America a burgeoning underclass of the undereducated, much more likely to commit and be victims of crime, incapable of being self sufficient, and unequipped to fully participate in the American Dream.


What will work to keep our nation's teens in school and on the track to becoming self sufficient, contributing members of society? It has been proven that small personal high schools with low teacher student ratios are very important. Active participation in extracurricular activities such as athletics, mission/serving learning trips, and leadership camp are a major key. Probably the most important factor is a very aggressive, proactive engagement by loving caring adults in the lives of these very needy youth.

The Denver Street School (DSS) is now in its 25th year of providing just such an education to the troubled and at-risk teens of the Denver metro area. When I founded the school in 1985 in a little house in the most troubled part of Denver, I knew that a quality

In 2003, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation strongly endorsed the Denver Street School model of individualized, personalized education in a small school setting by including NASS as the only faith-based model in its Alternative High School Initiative.

As a member of our family, we hope that you will join us for our 2011 Graduation Ceremony

Voting Opens Soon
Voting in the special election takes place from May 19-24th. Please remember you must have a login to the Sertoma website to cast your vote. If you do not have a login, please create one prior to the voting window as it can take 24 business hours for your permissions to be granted on the website.

Candidates for Office
In an effort to keep our members well informed, Sertoma offered each candidate a one-time opportunity to put information out by email due to the fact not all Regions were having a convention this spring. There are two candidates running for the office of Vice President, Eddie Dlugopolski whose flyer was previously sent and David Johnson whose flyer can be found below. The Director-at-large is an uncontested election and candidate Alton Borel has not provided an e-mail flyer.  More information on the candidates can be found in the last Sertoman magazine or you can listen to the recording of the online candidate forum where each candidate answered questions regarding Sertoma.
