The club voted to have a Pancake feed sometime in Novermeber. We also decided to split the proceeds with Interfaith Taskforce at 50/50 since it looks like we will be selling the majority of the tickets. 100 tickets is the minimum at $10 each.

Tim needs your “volunteer hours”, these would be for the quarter and any hours with any organization you “volunteer” at. These are reported to International.

Don Nelson had about 8 guests from the club visit him last week to wish him a happy 90th. Jeannie also announced there will be an open house at Don’s place on Oct 18th from 3 to 5pm.

news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:   The birth of Carl Duncan in 1930, like Fred Downs, ushered in the Great Depression. Carl’s parents were school teachers who maintained employment during this era in small rural schools. They met and were married in Burlington. Carl was born in 1930 in Alamosa and 2 weeks later, the family moved to Cortez, CO. and was there his first 6 years of his life. The family moved to the coal mining community of Oak Creek in 1936 where the main form of entertainment was tackle football with or without pads.

In 1940 they relocated to Avondale, a gentle farm community 15 miles east of Pueblo on the Arkansas River where the main form of entertainment was softball. Carl mentioned that per capital, Avondale is the murder capital of the U.S. with 2 murders and a population of 350. In playing softball, Carl’s first painful learning experience was to catch a fly ball with the hands rather than in the chest like a football. Duncan obtained a BA degree from the Univ. of Colorado and was drafted during the Korean War into the 101st Air Borne, was a Company Clerk and was sent to Germany because he could speak the language. He had 5 months of heavy weapon training but ended up playing the French Horn in the band.

Carl recovered from the warped mentality instilled by the liberals at CU and obtained an MBA degree form DU and became a CPA, using the GI bill. In 1962 he settled in Denver and was unleashed as a CPA on an unsuspecting public. Carl was brought into the club June 2003 by Steve Bolyard. Carl was married in 1957 to ?? (he never says) they have 3 kids and 8 G-kids.

Program:   Randy Smith introduced Tom Browning from the Colorado Water Conservation Board and Tom was here to tell us about the upcoming expansion of the Chatfield Reservoir.

The CWCB is the (non‐federal) sponsor of the Chatfield Reservoir Reallocation Project in cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) and water providers located in the South Platte River Basin.

A final Feasibility Report and Environmental Impact Statement was issued by the Corps that explains the project, its impacts, required mitigation work, and estimated project costs.

The fundamental concept of the project is to reallocate (convert) some of the existing storage space in the reservoir from flood control to multi-use and water supply purposes. A letter of approval and record of decision (ROD) from the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Civil Works) indicates that 20,600 acre-feet of storage space can be reallocated. That amount represents an ability to store more water up to twelve vertical feet above the current normal pool elevation of 5,432 feet. Modification to recreation facilities at the state park, along with key environmental mitigation work, will need to be completed before the additional storage is allowed to happen.
