Dear Sertomans:  We are trying to build a club in Boulder, as some of you already know.  I would like you all to provide names of contacts you or any members of your clubs have in Boulder.  We need to develop a list of prospects to recruit the charter members for this club.  The help of every club will serve the entire area as we will all benefit from having another club in our area.  It is time to focus on growth and club building is the easiest, most fun way to generate growth.  I appreciate any help you can provide.   Send the contact info to me via email, please.  Steve


news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY: 

Young Pat McKim was born in York, Penn in 1968 (Pat thought some of us were wearing underwear that old). He was the last of 4 kids and in 1970, his parents moved the family to Littleton so he went to Littleton public schools. Rick Jacobus and Sam Anderson got him into the club. Pat has known Rick a long time. Pat grew up with Ricks and Doug’s kids.

(Pat heard someone knocking on his door and it's Fathers day:

Pat graduated in 1991 from CU Denver for his degree as a certified financial planner and has worked at that profession for the past 17 years or so.

Pat has served every position in the club except secretary and has been a bingo captain for about 10 years. He figures with his young age, he has brought the average age of the club DOWN to 65. Pat seems a bit disappointed that Ken Kelley is now the youngest member.

He is single, has never been married and has no kids (as far as he knows, he says he doesn’t answer the door on Fathers day). His hobbies include everything that takes him where the ladies are, riding dirt bikes and mountains bikes. A couple weeks ago, he was in Leadville racing at 10,000 feet plus and passed Lance Armstrong in the race (in opposite directions, Pat finished 4 hours behind Lance). He has no military service. He grew up on the Platt River and his High School, Heritage High, is still standing. His dog’s name is El Guapo and Pat has finished his new home.

  Take care of your loved ones now—and later

To make sure the savings in your employer-sponsored retirement plan are distributed as you wish after you die, you must name a beneficiary.

Naming your beneficiary for your retirement plan savings and keeping it up to date is important because your beneficiary designation supersedes your will regarding your employer-sponsored retirement plan assets.

This means that when you properly designate a beneficiary you ensure that your hard-earned savings are distributed directly to your loved ones according to your wishes. If you don't name a beneficiary, your retirement plan savings could be distributed to an unintended heir—regardless of what your will instructs.

HOW Forrest Gump got to Heaven

The day finally arrived. Forrest Gump dies and goes to Heaven.. He is at
the Pearly Gates, met by St. Peter himself. However, the gates are closed, and Forrest approaches the gatekeeper.

St. Peter said, "Well, Forrest, it is certainly good to see you. We have heard a lot about you. I must tell you, though, that the place is filling up fast, and we have been administering
an entrance examination for everyone. The test is short, but you have to pass it before you can get into Heaven."

Forrest responds, "It sure is good to be here, St. Peter, sir. But nobody ever told me about any entrance exam. I sure hope that the test ain't too hard. Life was a big enough test as it was."

St. Peter continued, "Yes, I know, Forrest, but the test is only three questions.

What two days of the week begin with the letter T?

How many seconds are there in a year?

What is God's first name?"

Forrest leaves to think the questions over. He returns the next day and sees St. Peter, who waves him up, and says, "Now that you have had a chance to think the questions over,
tell me your answers"

Forrest replied, "Well, the first one -- which two days in the week begins with the letter "T"? Shucks, that one is easy. That would be Today and Tomorrow."

The Saint's eyes opened wide and he exclaimed, "Forrest, that is not what I was thinking, but you do have a point, and I guess I did not specify, so I will give you credit for that answer.

How about the next one?" asked St. Peter.

"How many seconds in a year?

Now that one is harder," replied Forrest, but I thunk and thunk about that, and I guess the only answer can be twelve."

Astounded, St. Peter said, "Twelve?
Twelve? Forrest, how in Heaven's name could you come up with twelve seconds in a year?"

Forrest replied, "Shucks, there's got to be twelve: January 2nd, February 2nd, March 2nd... "

"Hold it," interrupts St.. Peter. "I see where you are going with this, and I see your point, though that was not quite what I had in mind....but I will have to give you credit for that one, too. Let us go on with the third and final question.

Can you tell me God's first name"?

"Sure," Forrest replied, "it's Andy.."

"Andy?" exclaimed an exasperated and frustrated St Peter.

"Ok, I can understand how you came up with your answers to the first two questions, but just how in the world did you come up with the name Andy as the first name of God?"

"Shucks, that was the easiest one of all," Forrest replied. "I learnt it from the song, "ANDY WALKS WITH ME, ANDY TALKS WITH ME, ANDY TELLS ME I AM HIS OWN."

St. Peter opened the Pearly Gates, and said: "Run Forrest, run."

Give me a sense of humor, Lord.
Give me the ability to understand a clean joke,
To get some humor out of life,
And to pass it on to other folks
