Guests:  n/a

Fines:   The good Rev. for eating desert before lunch and bragging about the St. Louis Cardinals winning the World Series (they did?) ….also, Table 1 for a guest and starting the meeting prematurely before the President.... Mr. Benton paid his fine to advertise the fact that Chevrolet is 100 years old.

Announcements:  NEW: Club Christmas Party this year is December 9th and Price will be $37/person. See menu click here: Christmas Menu.pdf   Bring money next week.
Homewood Suites in giving us the opportunity once again to spend that night (Friday, Dec. 9) for a paltry 57 bucks per suite. Jeanette Ridl (manager) keeps giving us this rate year after year----Gus Szala got it for us originally for our 57th birthday. The phone # at Homewood is (720) 981 4763. Such a bargain!!!

Jim Rees was presented his Sertoman of the Year award from Doug Harder and it was mention that Jim was honored at the Service Club luncheon last week. Ken Kelley attended the District Conference last week and said there is some new and exciting technology for hearing devices.

Rick Jacobus told his staff for Freedom Week to pick up the essays the week of the 13th.

Pat McKim road his motorcycle to the east coast a short time back and had a visit with Sam & Mary Anderson in Florida. Sam may be out to visit in the near future.

Randy Smith mentioned that on Nov. 2nd, the Foundation for Sight and Sound fitted 36 hearing aids to 19 recipients that couldn’t otherwise afford them. George Hannes along with Ken Kelley were on hand to help. The Foundation is having a Wine tasting party but by the time you read this, it will be over.

Bob Buckland has put together a trip to the Denver Aquarium Nov. 17th with a private, guided tour starting at 11am, followed by lunch at the on-site Landry’s restaurant. There is no charge for the tour and he is working on free parking and a cut in the price at Landry’s. A sign-up sheet was passed. Price looks like maybe a couple bucks with the club picking up most of the cost. Some members are not happy with the cancelation of a regular meeting but Thursday was the only day we could have the tour. I am sure there will be more input on this in the future. One thought on the club picking up most of the cost of the meals was that we have already paid for our weekly meals in the form of dues.

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

The enthusiastic Jim Rees has 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.
