Guests:  n/a

Fines:  n/a this week

Announcements:  Scott Manley reported the results of the A-1 Scuba raffle for which they made about $8,000 and it just so happened that the winner was there when his name was drawn. Several of our members volunteered to help and a big “Thank You” to them.

Pat McKim gave his report on how the Poker Tournament turned out and it was a good report. There were 112 players and we grossed about $11,700 and netted about $7,850 and from what I heard, everyone had a good time and the food was great. Now the question is, when do we do it again? Any takers on being in charge……? Thanks Pat, you came through again.

Orian had more information on the upcoming Induction (Intimidation) Banquet at Red Rocks CC to be held June 12th. Click the highlighted text for more info. The Board did vote to off set some of the dinner cost so what is your excuse for not going?

news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:     Well, we finally got him to the podium and he entertained us with some history on himself and a very famous person from his area. Who are we talking about? Dick Mason of course ( and Mark Twain).

Dick Mason gave an update on his life and a few other tid bits. Dick, a Life Member, was born 11/12/45 in Quincy, Ill. The Mississippi River was next to his hometown. Three High Schools in town and he didn't graduate from any of them, he even tried to go to the all girls school.

After being suspended from high school one too many times, he joined the Marine Corp. While in the Marines, he received his GED. Dick served almost four years and was an E-5 when discharged. He has a trip to Viet Nam and Hawaii on his military resume (plus a memorable time spent on a ship for a month in the harbor).

After getting out of the service, Dick married JoAnn 47 years ago, they met in study hall. He worked a little, then went back to Glendale Community College in Phoenix, where he graduated and then got a scholarship to DU. That plus the GI bill and his hard work got him through school by March of '72. Now a CPA (that does not stand for Cleaning, Pressing & Alterations), his firm was acquired and he has moved on to bigger and better things. As of now Dick is retired.

The Mason’s have three kids, sons Bryan and Brandi, along with daughter Brandy and there are two grandkids total. Rick Jacobus brought Dick into the club about 23 years ago and he has served in a number of offices and is a Past President and Gold Coat recipient.      Listen to Dick Mason.mp3

Program:  Randy Smith filled in for someone, we don’t know for sure who but he did a great job of getting to the front of the chow line…..Oh, he also introduced our “Program of the day”, Diane McClymonds who is the Executive Director at TLC Meals on Wheels in Littleton, Colorado. One interesting thing for today, our SOD’s wife is a volunteer and Dick’s old firm is the CPA for Meals on Wheels.

TLC Meals on Wheels drives away hunger for the home bound of South Metro Denver. Although the average age of our clients is 82, we also serve those with disabilities and those in need of short-term assistance.

Our name, TLC Meals on Wheels, comes from our history. Formerly called Town of Littleton Cares, we serve an area that includes several communities in western Arapahoe and southeastern Jefferson counties. When we relocated from Littleton to Centennial in 2009, we adopted the name we’d been using for quite a while to emphasize our mission, Meals on Wheels.

Meals on Wheels is a well known, nationwide concept, but each program is independent. TLC Meals on Wheels is a self-governed, private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization supported by tax-deductible donations.

TLC Meals on Wheels enriches the lives of seniors and others by providing nutritious meals and services that promote dignity, well-being, and independence. We drive away hunger for the home bound of South Metro Denver.

Monday through Friday, volunteers deliver a hot lunch to neighbors in need. Our service supports those whose age or disability makes it difficult to provide their own balanced nutrition. It also helps them stay in the security and comfort of their own home. In short, we address both hunger for food and hunger for personal contact.             Listen to Diane McClyonds.mp3
