SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:
The honorable Dave Miley was the SOD today. He reminded us he was born on the day FDR was inaugurated for the 3 rd time, Jan 20 th, 1941. He grew up near a racetrack and in the winter, the kids would sled down the banked turns of the track.
Dave’s dad came to Denver in 1945 to work at the Remington Arms plant but that only lasted 6 months do to the end of the War. In 1951, the family lived on Elati St. Dave and Bob Schlageter terrorized the neighborhood. At 13, Dave’s dad told “Shorty” he could start crawling around in attics installing insulation. He could do 7 houses a day at $3/house. Dave played football in H.S. with Harder’s brother, Dave and somehow, Dave and Dave switched girl friends.
Dave graduated from CSU with a major in Business Admin. And ROTC. In 1964, he joined the U.S. Air Force, went to flight school in Williams, AZ and served with the 352 nd in Vietnam. After 6-1/2 years, he left the service and since the airlines were laying pilots off, Dave got his Real Estate license and now does mostly commercial stuff.
Dave has 2 kids and 3 grandkids. Joined South Suburban club in ‘72’, then switched to Arapahoe. He was the President in ‘78’ and Governor in ‘95’. Dave is a military history buff and he likes golf and auto racing, especially midgets. In Jan, he goes to OK to watch indoor racing. Handshake prize to Elsey.
Program: Cliff Metsker’s wife, Mary, introduced Carol McGuigan, who is the Program Administrator, Special Events, for the City of Englewood. Carol started off mentioning that Mary was her sister (sister of P.E.O that is). P.E.O. (philanthropic educational organization), one of the pioneer societies for women, was founded on January 21, 1869, by seven students at Iowa Wesleyan College in Mount Pleasant, Iowa. Originally a small campus friendship society, P.E.O. soon blossomed to include women off campus. Today, P.E.O. has grown from that tiny membership of seven to almost a quarter of a million members in chapters in the United States and Canada. The P.E.O. Sisterhood is passionate about its mission: promoting educational opportunities for women.
Carol really came to talk about all the activities that are available through the City of Englewood Recreation Department. They have activities for all age groups, even the members of Sertoma, including the young, Pat McKim.
The Recreation Center is a full service community facility and offers an indoor track, a 25-meter 8-lane swimming pool, a full size gymnasium, an expanded weight training area, a cardiovascular area, four racquetball/wallyball courts (that’s not a typo, it’s what the book says), two lighted sand volleyball courts, a dedicated youth center, and numerous other amenities. A wide variety of classes and activities is offered for all ages. The facility is open to anyone and offers reasonable fees for daily or extended visit admission. Englewood residents do get a slight discount.
Carol mentioned that there are times you can get FREE Rockies tickets (bet they don’t have any for the playoff). She had Mary pass out several guides, one is the Fall 2007 Activities Guide and the other was the Malley Senior Activities Guide, along with several other handouts.
