Announcements:   Our President was here, an error on the part of last week’s reporter, who ever that was.

In lieu of a “Wives dinner”, the Christmas / 60th Anniversary Dinner Dec. 14th will cover it. Miley read off a list of attendees and you need to get paid up if going. See Dave if your plans change. Orian Hunter is really the guy in charge but we haven't seen him for a couple weeks.

We are scheduling the Kids Christmas Party as Dec. 20th, if this works for the kids and their Christmas break. Hot dogs, mac & cheese, ice-cream and cup cakes and anything else that is appropriate for kids or kids at heart, will be served We plan on Santa being there and if he can make it, all kids need to bring a gift. Start thinking about how many kids you will be bringing, we will need an estimate in a couple weeks. DO NOT EMAIL DON ON THIS. If there is any “normal” business that needs to be handled, we will do it quickly.

Remember, if you bring in a new member and he stays 6 months, you get Free Dues per new member for a quarter.

news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:

Sertoman of the Day:   Tim Pollak, with a PhD on the wall, brought us up to date on his life story. Tim was born Sep. 6, 1945 on the south side of Chicago. Probably while still in the hospital, their apartment caught on fire and the family moved to the Rogers Park area of Chicago. When in first grade, they moved to Evanston and he went through all grades there. The high school was so large, he went to “East Hall” high school in Evanston.

At 15, he was active in youth groups, debating life. They decided there was no universal purpose to human life. Because of that, he decided to go into clinical psychology. He attended Antioch College and their “cooperative plan of education (classes for one quarter then work in the field for a quarter). He worked in Phoenix, AZ; Boston, MA; Skokie, IL and San Jose, CA to name a few.

Tim was a “consciences objector” at the time of the Viet Nam war and worked in several hospitals instead of fighting. He was accepted to DU in Social Work but wondered why he never heard from the U. of TN. After a phone call and an interview, he was accepted. He graduated with a PhD in Clinical Psych. from the Univ. in 1979.

Tim married the first time in 1981, divorced in 1982, met Ruth in 1983 and married her in 1984. (He didn’t mention what happened in 1985 but it had to be good). Tim and Ruth have their own counseling service called Re Leaf Counseling (303 972-0714). He was introduced to the club in 1989 by Barney O’Grady with Dean Hiss’s help. Tim was club President in 2003/04 and has been very active in the club over the years and was our Sertoman of the Year in 2006.

Dr. Tim has also been doing work on helping people who have Phobias and says it only takes a few minutes with outstanding results. He works out of his house so give him a call. (303) 972-0714

Program:  Bill Benton introduced Ida May Nicholl, Director of Community Relations, Englewood Historic Preservation Society. Ida May came to give us an update on what’s happening with the historic Englewood Depot.

The Englewood Historic Preservation Society is a 501(c)(3) Corporation with a two-fold mission. The first priority is acquisition of the Depot, completing the building’s restoration, and inaugurating the Depot as a community museum. The museum will offer and house exhibitions of our City, the region, and tell the story of the role the Depot played in the history of the railroads of the Southwest. The Society has in its collection nearly 120 cataloged items and an additional estimated 1100 unlisted items donated by citizens, friends, and railroad enthusiasts.

The second portion of our mission is to identify, gather, preserve, and protect our City’s historic legacy by acquainting and educating our citizens, their children, visitors, and new residents to our City about our roots and the importance of our history to maintain a strong foundation in building for our future. As part of the education process, we have been conducting well received monthly historic lecture series at the Englewood Public Library featuring speakers who have a specific area of expertise related to the history of Englewood, the region, our State, as well as the history of the railroads in Colorado.
