news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:

Sertoman of the Day:   Today’s SOD is Ed Bezjak, who grew up in the Globeville area of Denver and after various grade schools, attended Annunciation High School. As part of the parochial league, Ed and his team mates held their own against rivals such as Regis.

Ed met Margie in 1955 and has been married to her for 57 years. They have 2 daughters and 3 grandkids. All are above average.

In 1992, Ed was inducted into the Colorado Softball Hall of Fame which indicates he had a fair amount of talent in that sport. Ed has been in Sertoma about 40 years and was brought into the club by Doug Harder. Ed was the original captain of bingo and figures he has road that horse long enough. Ed returned from his winter hibernation just in time to be the SOD. (yes Don, I was gone). Listen to EdBezjak.mp3

Program:   Jim Perkins introduced Polly Letofsky, she walked around the world and wrote a book about it "A Long Walk".
On August 1, 1999, Polly Letofsky left her home in Vail, Colorado, and headed west. She traveled across 4 continents, 22 countries, and over 14,000 miles – by foot – to become the first woman to walk around the world.
As an awareness campaign for breast cancer, survivors and well-wishers around the world came to walk with her. Every day strangers welcomed her into their homes and shared meals. The world had embraced her.

But in the middle of Polly’s five year journey, the world suddenly shifted on it’s axis when September 11 flung us all into a crossroads in world history. Polly suddenly found herself embedded in a vastly changing world and realized she could never retrace her steps home – they’d vanished in a tide of world events.

Polly’s GlobalWalk has been featured in over 2,000 newspapers, magazines, radio and television stations around the world, including Good Housekeeping, CNN International, The CBS Early Show, NBC’s Your Total Health, and Fine Living Channel’s Radical Sabbatical. Newcastle Productions has recently released Polly’s GlobalWalk, a documentary chronicling her journey.
A natural storyteller, since her return, Polly has been speaking to rapt audiences around the country. She richly details her journey with humor and honest reflection, the good times and the hardships. Sometimes serious, sometimes funny, always inspirational, Polly’s inspiring keynote personifies the spirit of commitment and perseverance that will compel your audience to take on life’s biggest challenges – one step at a time.      listen to PollyLetofsky.mp3
