Foundation News:  The Foundation members will meet after lunch next week for their last quarterly meeting. 

The Foundation still has a cemetery plot or two for sale. They are located at Chapel Hill Cemetery. If interested, contact one of the Foundation members or me ( ) and I will forward your contact to one of them.

Announcements:   Ed Bezjak sent an e-mail saying he made it to Arizona after a 2 day drive. Stay safe Ed, we want to see you back in 6 months.

Scott’s 5 year old daughter would love to have some Veterans at her school tomorrow to honor Veterans day. Scott is also looking for a school/church to host a Rugby Tournament.

Orian announced he has a sign-up sheet being passed around for the up-coming Christmas Party this Dec. 10th.

2 week’s ago Bronco pool winners: Combellick, Manley, Stein & Jacobus.  This week game between Bronco's and New England.jpg

The question of where the monies go from the Pool (and King Soopers) is: They help keep our dues lower. Dick Mason mentioned at the Board Meeting that he just received a check for $463 so keep using the King Soopers cards. We are going to have a small program on how to use them if you’re not sure.

Sertoman of the Day:    Norm “Sheet Rock” Schillo returned again to the podium to tell his story and how it began. His ethnic background is German. Almost every male on his family tree earned his living as a carpenter. Norm’s father became the superintendent of specialized housing construction.

At one point, Norm mentioned he is 90 years old (should have remained quiet Norm, the club was betting 24). Feeling the memories, joys and pains, Norm was pretty choked up by the end of his presentation.

Norm Schillo, born 10 Sep, 1927 and raised in north Denver (and proud of it). He is proud to now be an octogenarian. He attended public school in north Denver. Of the 5 elementary schools, 2 have been demolished. He went to Skinner Jr. High and North High.

Norm went into the Navy in 1945, the same day he graduated from high school, for WWII. The war ended while he was in boot camp and although he didn’t get to Sail the High Seas, he did get to Puget Sound. He messed around for a couple years after the Navy. His father finally got a hold of him and convinced him to pick a trade. He went into bricklaying. He started his own company after 7 years. He ran that business for 13 years. Then had a marina in Granby for 2 years and then sold real estate for 2 years. He eventually got into homebuilding and did well for 15 years before the economy dropped out so he retired. Norm worked with Mike Magee and Will Martinez when he was learning what manual labor means.

He had 3 daughters with his first wife, Mary Lou. He met his second wife Ann while playing Tennis with Tommy Fry at Pinehurst and they were married in 1997. From that marriage he inherited several more family members. He was married to Ann for 15 years; she passed away not too long ago.

Norm had 3 daughters but one has passed away, 5 g-kids and 11 gg-kids on his side. Ann had 4 sons and 10 g-kids & 1 great grandchild. Bill Anderson brought him into the club. Listen to Norm Schillo.mp3

Program:  Randy Smith introduced Amy Jordan, Community Relations & Event Specialist for Up with People. Amy had a power point and video explaining what Up with People is and does.

Many young adults have discovered the power and potential of a gap year. No matter when you take one – after high school, university, or mid-career – a gap year can provide a powerful learning opportunity to discover yourself, your talents, and the world.

The Up with People program provides an international gap year experience like no other. Our semester or year-long touring program immerses our participants into many different cultures each and every day. Through our unique blend of music and social action, travel and host family stays, we provide an in-depth experiential learning environment that will prepare you to navigate today’s complex world, no matter where your life journey takes you!

As a premier global education program, we impact young people and communities worldwide in deep and lasting ways. By using music to unite and inspire, we spark others to think more broadly about their world and forge connections among diverse cultures. We are committed to empowering young people to find their voice to make a positive change in the world, and developing a culture of global citizens who aspire to create a more hopeful, trusting, and peaceful world.

This sounds like a great program for a High School Graduate but they are starting some new programs for some younger kids.     Listen to Amy Jordan.mp3
