“Bob Gallagher is the name, justice in the American way is the game”

Born in Pueblo, attended Centennial H.S. (it has since fallen down). David Packard (of Hewitt Packard fame) also went there).

Married 50 some odd years to Shirley. Joined the Marines to by-pass the draft. Was in a car accident in 29 Palms, CA and got an education at UCLA (in law?).

He mentioned something about being on Queen for a Day and the Steve Allen show.

Bob was the 10 th Gold Coat President in a row for Arapahoe Sertoma so that won the club the Diamond Circle Award which is attached to the front of our podium.

Bob had a couple kids and they were patients of Tommy “Tooth” Fry, a dentist at that time. Bob is working on his “Perfect Attendance” award and as he looks out over the gathering of members, he has funny thoughts but wouldn’t say what they were.

Bob was brought into the club my either Graham or Parchen. He was also misled to believe the fiver payout was now $10 but that was not mandatory so $5 to Pifer.

Program:   Carl introduced Dr. Gary VanderArk, a Clinical Professor, who was here today to talk about The Colorado Coalition for the Medically Underserved (CCMU) which is a non-profit advocacy coalition committed to affordable, quality, timely health care for everyone in Colorado.

He started out by saying “I love Sertoma”. He won the Service to Mankind award in the 90’s, then won the District award and then, won the Regional award and, was nominated for the National Service to Mankind Award. (WOW) He also mentioned that Bob Gallagher was once his landlord.

The Dr. had a presentation on some of the myths about health care and the numbers of uninsured in the state and the U.S. For routine medical service at a hospital, there is an average 7 hour and 20 minute wait for service.

For more information on the CCMU, to join their membership, volunteer, or make a donation, visit www.ccmu.org or contact Executive Director Molly Markert at 303-832-7727. Gary can be reached at Gary.VanderArk at uchsc.edu (replace at with @)

Movie review:


The Husband Store!

A little chuckle that's not as long as it looks!!!

A store that sells husbands has just opened in New York City, where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates.

""You may visit the store ONLY ONCE ! You may choose any man from a particular floor, or you may choose to go up a floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the Building!""

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband . .

On the first floor the sign on the door reads:
Floor 1 - These men have jobs and love the Lord.

The second floor sign reads:
Floor 2 - These men have jobs, love the Lord, and love kids.

The third floor sign reads:
Floor 3 - These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, and are extremely good looking.

" Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going. She goes to the fourth floor and sign reads:

Floor 4 - These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are drop dead good looking and help with the housework.

"Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!" Still, she goes to the fifth floor and sign reads:

Floor 5 - These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are drop- dead gorgeous, help with the housework, and have a strong romantic streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 6 - You are visitor 4,363,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please.

Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store. Watch your step as you exit the building , and have a nice day!
