(From Bob Stein) I was recently asked to secure the services of the Red Rocks C.C. for our annual Installation Banquet. The Friday nights in June were all booked so I took the next best thing. Saturday, 6/25 The event will be on the Pavillion, as it has been in the past. Sit down meal. Cash Bar. Salad and Dessert.
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.

All we have to do is sell the holes and get players for our part in The First Annual Brewmasters Classic Golf Tournament, June 6th. Guest Speaker – Keith Villa, Founder and Brewmaster of Blue Moon Beer. Participation in the Tournament will help the deaf and blind. For payment info:
or contact Ken Kelley 303-781-1110 or Doug Harder 303-875-8758 by May 25th.

Doug passed out used hearing aids with the idea that we have them in our pockets and when we feel them, it reminds us of what we need to do.

SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:      usnavy.gif

Bob Buckland stepped in for Jim Britton who hasn’t returned from vacation. Bob “Bucky” Buckland: Born June of 1932 in Hartford, CT Hospital, 1-1/2 miles from the CT river. He was the 5th of 6 kids. Bob graduated from Hall High in W. Hartford and the school is still standing. He attended undergraduate school at the Univ. of CT 1950-1956 interrupted by 2 years in the U.S. Navy (51-53). Bob mentioned a time he was stationed in
Alaska and on a simulated invasion drill, WE LOST. Thanks Bob.


Bob was a Group Rep for Prudential Insurance Co. 1956-1958. On 11/30/57 Bob married Betty and they had three children, Mac, Toddie & Freddie, all of them married now. Bob and Betty have 7 grand children and 8 GG-grandkids. Betty was a nurse.
Bob left Prudential and went to the Univ. of Conn. School of Law 1958-61 and was admitted to the Conn. Bar July 1961. He was an Atty. for Conn. Mutual Live from 1961 to 1964. Bob and Betty then moved to Denver in 1964 to go into sale for Conn. Mutual. He is still associated with its successor, Mass. Mutual but is “partly retired” now.
Dick Sorensen brought Bob into the Lodo Club but since they didn't have many members in the club, Bob liked the size of the Arapahoe Club and moved over to it.    Listen to Bob Buckland.mp3

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.
