Guests:  (note from board meeting) Tom Guetz and John Cullen from S.W. Sertoma came to discuss the opportunity to collaborate with Arapahoe Sertoma in co-sponsoring their annual charity Golf Tournament at Pinehurst Country Club. Southwest Sertoma has only 21 members and needs help with continuing to sponsor the annual charity golf tournament. The tournament has been very successful raising $65,525 in 2009, $79,119.99 in 2010 and $53,287 in 2011. Proceeds from the Tournament in 2009 were $36,030.78, $44,536.30 in 2010 and $28,590 in 2011. This is the 16th year for the tournament and the major benefactor is the Center for Hearing, Speech and Language. However, ten to fifteen other charities benefit annually. The event consists of an 18-hole 4-man best ball scramble. They provide box lunches and have numerous games and prizes on the course. Water, beer and soft drinks are provided free on the course. Immediately following the golf there is a social hour with a silent auction, sports memorabilia auction, hors d’oeuvres and cash bar. A raffle is also held with tickets pre-sold and sold during the tournament and a sit down dinner. Cullen indicated Gold ($1800), Silver ($1200) and Bronze ($600) sponsorships are sold along with hole sponsors for $250. The event has been a combined effort by Southwest Sertoma, LaSertoma and strong event day volunteers and administrative support from the Center for Hearing, Speech and Language.

Tom Guetz reviewed the proposed Disbursement of Net Proceeds for next years tournament. Fifty-one percent of the net proceeds would go to the Center for Hearing Speech and Language. Half of that amount would be from Southwest and half would be from Arapahoe. La Sertoma would receive approximately $5-6,000 dependent on the overall success and the remainder would be divided equally between Southwest and Arapahoe based on volunteer effort.

A lengthly discussion followed with the general consensus being that this would be an excellent opportunity to raise funds for our Club but would require the membership to fully support the effort and volunteer to make the tournament a success. Arapahoe would be required to identify 7 co-chairmen for the following committees: 1. Overall Tournament Chairman 2. Publicity and Printing Chair 3. Finance Chair 4. Sponsors Chair 5. Live and Silent auctions Chair 6. Volunteer Chair and 7. Golf Chair
These committees would start meeting in January and would meet 3-4 times prior to the tournament.

Miley made a motion to approve working with Southwest Sertoma on co-sponsoring the tournament contingent on approval of the membership. The motion was seconded and unanimously approved. Mr. Guetz and Mr. Cullen were invited to attend the December 1st meeting of Arapahoe Sertoma and present a detailed review of the financial, organizational, and operational aspects of the tournament.

Fines:   Table 1 for allowing Tom and John to sit with them.

Rick Jacobus is getting his Freedom Week guys up to speed.

Dick Enslow is busy setting up next year’s 22 nd Annual Arapahoe Sertoma Fall Classic Golf Tournament. It will be in “2012”. He is looking for recommendations on where to hold it, any ideas?

Bob Buckland has put together a trip to the Denver Aquarium Nov. 17th with a private, guided tour starting at 11am, (get there about 10:45) followed by lunch at the on-site Landry’s restaurant. The club is picking up $10 per member for his lunch and the balance to be paid by the member (about $4 or so). All guests meals will be at the discounted price Bob has set up.

Kids Xmas party is scheduled for Dec. 22 nd. More to follow.

The enthusiastic Jim Rees has an overabundance of King Soopers coupons. The club receives 5% but only 4 people regularly use the service. The card is like a debit card so it’s easy to use.

SERTOMAN OF THE DAY: 

Since the scheduled SOD didn’t know he was to be SOD, there was no SOD for the day. Next meeting on Dec.1st, the SOD will be Will Martinez

Program:   Doug Harder pulled another one out of the bag on short notice by inviting the new Mayor of Englewood, Randy Penn. Doug and Randy are old time friends which is pretty obvious when you see (or hear) how they rib each other.

In 2008, Englewood's head football coach, Randy Penn retired after winning Coach of the Year in 3A football.

The sitting councilmember and longtime Englewood Schools coach is seeking re-election.

“I believe I have represented the citizens of Englewood positively and gained great insight on the interworking of the city,” he said.

Penn and his family have lived in Englewood since 1955.

The veteran community activist has been a liaison for Code Enforcement. He also served on the Englewood Transportation Advisory Committee, the Library Board, the Englewood City/School Committee and was the city’s representative to the Denver Regional Council of Government.

For three years, he was chairman of the Greater Englewood Chamber of Commerce.

“I am committed to my hometown Englewood,” he said. “My re-election to City Council will help ensure that the community values I have promoted over the last four years will continue to provide citizens with a proud and positive Englewood.”

City Council selects Randy Penn to serve as Englewood's Mayor

Posted Date: 11/7/2011

The four City Council members re-elected in the November 1, 2011 Election were sworn in during the November 7, 2011 Englewood City Council meeting. District 1 representative Joe Jefferson, District 3 representative Randy Penn, and At-Large representatives Bob McCaslin and Jill Wilson all took the Oath of Office administered by Judge Vincent Atencio. The Council members were elected to serve four-year terms.

City Council also selected a new Mayor and Mayor Pro Tem during the meeting. Randy Penn was selected to serve as Mayor and Jim Woodward, who has served as Englewood's Mayor for the last four years, was chosen as Mayor Pro Tem. The Mayor and Mayor Pro Tem are selected by City Council from among its members and serve in these positions for a period of two years, in accordance with the City of Englewood’s Charter.
