This year’s Christmas Party was discussed with the attending board members and it was decided to have it at the Elks club. The date looks like Tuesday, Dec. 20th. The hall is supposed to be already decorated and the price is a lot cheaper.

Remember, if you bring in a new member and he stays 6 months, you get Free Dues - per new member for a quarter. A couple members just qualified for this perk.


news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:    The ever (almost) entertaining Orian Hunter made the mistake of showing up today for lunch and found out he is the SOD…..and he had $5 with him.

Orian rambled on and on about something about why he hadn’t been to lunch and about him being a teacher of something at the University of Phoenix. He finally drew for the winner of the $5.

Orian Hunter was born in Denver, not to far from the South Platte River but he didn’t mention the date. He went to schools all over the place, including Grad School in Wisconsin. He was a teacher in a couple states.

Several years ago, Orian was teaching in Sterling and at Kingsburg but decided he was paying too much in taxes and decided to retire. Orian has a Principals License from the U. of Phoenix. He wanted to work for them so he sent his resume in and was hired, along with 75 other applicants. After all the training and classes, I think he said he did not get the job. He does teach for them in the evenings.

He is a grandpa with 3 grandsons and he found out one of them is like him. He is still married to Ellen after 38 years. Orian’s military consisted of 2 years of Army ROTC. (He wasn’t even sure if it was Army, what do they teach people now a days?). He didn’t seem too disappointed when they asked him to hang up his uniform.

Orian was a President in 2001-2002 and claims two contributions to the club. 1) The Western Welcome Lemonade stand and 2) improving the speech pattern of a certain club member huh….huh…(well, that one didn’t pan out). The guy that brought him into the club is long gone from the club (I didn’t catch his name). Listen to Orian Hunter.mp3

Program:  Randy Smith introduced Roland Halpern, Reginal Campaign & Outreach Manager of Compassion & Choices. His talk was timely since it was about Prop 106, the Colorado End of Life Options Ballot Initiative.

The Colorado End-of-Life Options Act (in part)

The Colorado End-of-Life Options Act (Prop 106) authorizes the medical practice of aid in dying. Medical aid in dying (also known as death with dignity) allows a terminally ill, mentally capable person who has a prognosis of six months or less to live to request, obtain and — if his or her suffering becomes unbearable — self-administer medication that brings about a peaceful death.

Medical Aid in Dying is a Safe and Trusted Medical Practice

Medical aid in dying is a safe and trusted medical practice because the eligibility requirements and safeguards ensure that only mentally capable, terminally ill adults with a prognosis of six months or less who want the choice of a peaceful death are able to request and obtain aid in dying medication. The prestigious and peer-reviewed Journal of Palliative Medicine published clinical criteria for medical aid in dying, which physicians use to ensure that the practice meets the highest standards of medical care.
