Guests:    Not a guest per se, but Mike Ballew was the honored guest at Table one today. Welcome Mike.

FINES:  n/a

Birthdays:   Glenn Combellick

Announcements:    The Board Meeting was cancelled again and we will try again next week.

It was voted on to have this years Officers Induction Lunch held on June 15 – wives and guests invited. For convenience we decided to have it at the Elks club with a special meal. Cost, location and convenience for more to attend were the factors on doing it this way. One thought was that by saving a little money on this event, we could apply that money to the Christmas party.

Dave Miley brought up the up-coming Chamber Golf outing in June. More info to follow. Last year we had to worst 4-some and they won a special award (golf lessons).

9 HealthFair. $35 for a bunch of tests. Go here to search for a location:

Scott made one last announcement for the A-1 Scuba Raffle to be held May 20 & 21 (that is this weekend). He can use some help so see if you can lend a hand on those dates. Here is the info on that event: A-1 Scuba info.jpg This year it is twofold, you can either win a trip for two to Cozumel and this benefits Craig Hospitals Therapeutic Recreation Department or a trip for two to the Philippines and this benefits American Veterans Experience Scuba Project. The winner pays air fare but everything else is included.

news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:    Glenn Combellick was born in Billings, MT on May 8th, 1924. He lived, attended school and fished there until he left to join the Navy from 1946-1948 & never left the US. While there, he got into playing marbles and, at the age of 12, won the City Tournament. He also won the next year and he says those were his “athletic years”, 1936 and 1937, when he was in junior high school. Glenn played marbles in the dirt lot next to his house so much he had dirt embedded in his hand. He says he was a “good” kid and didn’t get caught doing anything bad.

Glenn graduated from high school in 1941 and was in the Navy from Dec. 3rd, 1942 until Sep. 29th, 1945. He stayed in the States the whole time, being trained. Then he came to Denver and graduated at DU in 1948, followed by passing his CPA exam and into private practice in Englewood for 27 years until he retired in 1976 at 52 years old. Married Vernie Aug 29, 1948 and has 4 kids, 8 grandkids and 2 great grandchild. He indicated his son in Alaska retired this year and will continue to live in Alaska.

Glenn has been a member of Arapahoe Sertoma since 1955 and brought into the club by the charter President. Back then there were 80 members. Thanks for being part of the club, Glenn. Listen to Glenn Combellick.mp3

Program:   The scheduled program was a no show so Carl Duncan filled us in on his recent trip to Washing DC with Honor Flight. Listen to Carl Duncan’s trip.mp3

According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, an estimated 640 WWII veterans die each day. Honor Flight Network will continue do whatever it takes to fulfill the dreams of our veterans and help our heroes travel absolutely free.

Subsequent to the World War II veterans, our efforts will then focus on our Korean War and then Vietnam War veterans, honoring them similarly. (Note: Some hubs are now accepting applications from Korean and Vietnam Veterans. Please contact your local hub to see if they are accepting these applications.)

Important Note: Most Honor Flight Network hubs use their own Veteran application forms. Before downloading the application form above, take a minute to check the website of the Honor Flight Network hub you wish to depart from on our Regional Honor Flight Hubs page. If the website has application forms, download the appropriate form and follow their instructions for submitting it.

This is the one for the Denver area: Rocky Mountain Honor Flight

Our History and Goal: Rocky Mountain Honor Flight is a Denver Colorado based non-profit organization formed in 2007. Our goal is to fly every able and willing World War II veteran to Washington D.C. to visit "their" World War II Memorial.
