news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:  Glenn Combellick was born in Billings, MT on May 8th, 1924 (that makes him 90-1/2 in 2 days). He lived, attended school and fished there until he left to join the Navy. While there, he got into playing marbles and, at the age of 12, won the City Tournament. He also won the next year and he says those were his “athletic years”, 1936 and 1937, when he was in junior high school. Glenn played marbles in the dirt lot next to his house so much he had dirt embedded in his hand. He says he was a “good” kid and didn’t get caught doing anything bad.

Glenn graduated from high school in 1941 and was in the Navy from Dec. 3rd, 1942 until Sep. 29th, 1945. He stayed in the States the whole time, being trained. Then he came to Denver and graduated at DU in 1948, followed by passing his CPA exam and into private practice in Englewood for 27 years until he retired in 1976 at 52 years old. Married Vernie Aug 29, 1948 and has 4 kids, 8 grandkids and 2 great grandchild. He indicated his son in Alaska retired this year and will continue to live in Alaska.

Glenn has been a member of Arapahoe Sertoma since 1955 and brought into the club by the charter President. Thanks for being part of the club, Glenn.
Glenn shared some of his history while in the Navy and while growing up, listen to todays version here: Glenn Combellick.mp3

Program:   Randy Smith introduced Kimba Langas, Co-Founder & Executive Director of Free The Girls.

"What if we gave the average woman the opportunity to partner with women who have been rescued from human trafficking?” ~ Co-Founder Dave Terpstra, 2010

So began the journey where an Emmy-award winning television producer (Kimba Langas) and a social entrepreneur (Dave Terpstra) walked away from their successful careers to try and change the world.

Currently 27 million men, women and children are being held as slaves around the world—more today than in any other time in history. 80% of those slaves are women and girls–many of them victims of sex trafficking. There are a number of amazing organizations that are helping to rescue these women out of a life of prostitution, but what happens after they are rescued? Many aftercare providers are doing great work in providing comprehensive rehabilitation and educational opportunities to survivors, but often their resources are limited.

By partnering with established after-care facilities, we provide an opportunity for sex trafficking survivors to earn a living selling second-hand clothing while going to school, getting healthy, and caring for their families. Selling clothes allows them to work as much or as little as their school schedule permits. The women in our program receive their starting inventory as a donation, and are then able to buy additional inventory from Free The Girls for below wholesale value to help maintain their competitive edge in the marketplace. Revenue from inventory sales helps subsidize overseas program costs.

Let’s face it, ladies: the back of your underwear drawer is most likely a graveyard of bras you don’t wear anymore or that never fit right in the first place. By contrast, second-hand clothing is a profitable market in many countries around the world. Bras are sought after items. Some of the girls in our program are making 5x the minimum wage in their community by selling bras! And even better, bras provide an opportunity for these women to work with other women, since they have a history of being abused and used by men.               Listen to Kimba Langas.mp3
