It was announced that Mayflower Church is holding BLOOM Benefit and Bash, Sunday, Oct. 22 from 10:30am-2pm at 3001 S. Acoma St., Englewood.

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.


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 Listen to Tim Pollak.mp3

Program:  Scott Manley introduced Jason Regier, an old friend from Craig Hospital. Jason participates in Wheelchair Rugby and a little about how he became involved in the sport.

Jason was born 1975 in Denver and lived in Centennial. He attended George Washington High School, Oregon State U. studying Philosophy and has a Business Administration degree from CU. Jason has won many awards and medals in Wheelchair Rugby and had a video showing us just how brutal the sport can be.

In 1996, Jason Regier was headed back to school to finish his senior year. He was a typical college kid listening to the radio in his car on a long trip from Denver, CO to Oregon State in Corvallis, OR. His life changed forever when he reached down to change the radio station. Jason's jeep rolled three times. He sustained a spinal cord injury. Jason's path lead him to Craig Hospital for rehabilitation. He stayed in Denver after rehab. He finished his undergraduate degree and went on to receive his Masters form the University of Denver. He also took up the sport of quad rugby.

Quad rugby is an intense game played form a wheelchair. Jason soon learned he played extremely well and he and quickly rose through the ranks to the play on a national and international level. Jason has played quad rugby on two World Championship Teams and two Paralympic Teams. In 2008, he won a gold medal, and a bronze in 2012. Today, Jason owns his own consulting business and plays a lot of rugby. He’s hoping to finish his international rugby career at the Rio Paralympic Games in 2016.     ( )
