Fines:  Tommy Frye proposed a fine to "The Prez" for a poor reading of a joke but the club rescued Bill by not approving the fine.

Announcements:  Randy Smith, our program chair of highest merit, began by taking care of a couple items of business. First, he propose a fine on Bill Benton for "a total lack of leadership at the beginning of the meeting." It carried. Secondly, he announced he had DVDs that George Hannes had produced, to be passed out to those who were expecting them.

BOB Buckland - passed the hat (jar) requesting funds to help Randi, an Elk's club bartender, who is in home hospice battling cancer.

Doug Harder- indicated the upcoming pancake breakfast is a go and arrangements will be finalized when "jury duty is completed."

Jim Rees - "Good eating club." We received a check from King Soopers for $323.50 He also relayed a message from Scott Manley of an event to honor veterans that will be held at Centennial elementary school wherein Veterans are invited to attend. This will be held on Nov 16th with gathering from 10:45 to 11:00AM in the school library followed by a 30 minute program. At the conclusion of the program veterans will be invited to sit in on a classroom session.

news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:   Rick Campbell was born in Geneva, Illinois in 1953. Grew up in Illinois, went to High School at Glenbard West at Hilltop, it is still standing. Served in the military for 2 weeks, he was number 5 in the draft. Two weeks prior to reporting for basic, Nixon called off the draft but he did get inducted into the Army. Rick went on to College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, Il. Started as an electrical engineer, but did not like the number crunching as much as fixing cars.

Rick went to college for a year. He came out to Colorado on a ski vacation and enjoyed walking around in a tee shirt in the middle of winter (1973) and decided to come out and stay permanently. He had met Renee when he was in High School, they started dating during college and she came along when Rick moved west in 1974. They have been happily married for 37 years and they have 3 girls. The eldest of his daughters is a teacher at Ft. Logan Elementary. The middle child is a nurse at Porter. The youngest is a homemaker due to the recently arrival of twins. Rick and Renee now have 7 grand kids. One of the grand kids was born on 5-5-05.

Rick runs an auto collision repair service (Auto Body & Frame Clinic of Colorado) which he opened in 1979 and it’s close to the Elks' club (which is convenient because of the poor driving abilities of the club). His dad was in the auto body parts business. He gave Rick a beat up car and told him by the time you get it all fixed up, you will be old enough to drive it. Dr. Tim brought Rick into the club and he has held several chairs including President & Chairman of the Board.

Program:   Randy Smith introduced Paul Edwards to present an in-dept history of Elitch Cardens. Paul previously lived in Los Alamos, Colorado for 47 years and fought in the famous Battle Of The Bulge.
