Guests:   Bryn Boyer, Jim Robinson’s life skills coach; Randy Smith introduced Bob Smith, a long time friend. Bob did not expound as to whether or not they were directly related. I decided that was probably not the case as Bob seems to have his own hair.

Fines:  n/a

Announcements:   Carl filled in as the good Reverend Robinson missed his current call, but fear not Jim balanced this transgression by leaving early.

Ken Kelley advised Reverend Robinson that his Cards suck and the time had now arrived for the Pirates to take it all.

President Manley, for the quote of the day, read a series of five short Computer jokes/ each one was funny but I could not write and laugh at the same time. Perhaps we can prevail on Scott to provide a copy for our next report.

Englewood Chamber of Commerce Awards Luncheon is Oct. 29th a Tuesday so we are canceling our regular meeting on the 31st. We have about 24 signed up.

Remember, if you bring in a new member and he stays 6 months, you get Free Dues - per new member for a quarter.


news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:  

Sertoman of the Day:   Norm Schillo took his turn on the docket electing to take advantage of this opportunity to speak of his ancestral past. His ethnic background is German. Almost every male on his family tree earned his living as a carpenter. Norm’s father became the superintendent of specialized housing construction.

At one point, Norm mentioned he is 86 years old (should have remained quiet Norm, the club was betting 24). Feeling the memories, joys and pains, Norm was pretty choked up by the end of his presentation.

Norm Schillo, born 10 Sep, 1927 and raised in north Denver (and proud of it). He is proud to now be an octogenarian. He attended public school in north Denver. Of the 5 elementary schools, 2 have been demolished. He went to Skinner Jr. High and North High.

Norm went into the Navy in 1945, the same day he graduated from high school, for WWII. The war ended while he was in boot camp and although he didn’t get to Sail the High Seas, he did get to Puget Sound. He messed around for a couple years after the Navy. His father finally got a hold of him and convinced him to pick a trade. He went into bricklaying. He started his own company after 7 years. He ran that business for 13 years. Then had a marina in Granby for 2 years and then sold real estate for 2 years. He eventually got into homebuilding and did well for 15 years before the economy dropped out so he retired. Norm worked with Mike Magee and Will Martinez when he was learning what manual labor means.

He had 3 daughters with his first wife, Mary Lou. He met his present wife Ann while playing Tennis with Tommy Fry at Pinehurst and they were married in 1997. From that marriage he inherited several more family members. He’s now been married to Ann for 13 years.

Norm has 3 daughters, 5 g-kids and 10 gg-kids on his side with one due shortly. Ann had 4 sons and 10 g-kids but no great grandkids. Bill Anderson brought him into the club.

Program:  Dave Miley, our Program Director, provided a very entertaining program. Dave introduced Ron Kientz, a professional entertainer who brought his electronic music making sound equipment to accompany himself as he sang a selection of songs from the past. Ron’s son plays or has for about 15 years as the pianist at Park Meadows. The songs Ron performed for our crew included:

Tony Bennet, also 86 years old: A Fool Such As I; Kiss The Good Life Goodbye
Barry Manilow: I Write The Songs.
Irish Classics: Oh Danny Boy; Irish Lullaby.
Josh Groban – newbie with an oldie style: You Wake Me Up.
Jim Reeves – died at age 40 in a plane crash: He’ll Have To Go - #1 for 1960 in England, I Love You Most Of All Because You Are You.
