Guests:   Brock West, Tom Guetz, Rick Carman and John Cullen, all from S.W. Sertoma, and Jill Wayne (also our program) from CHSL.

Fines:   Mason got caught this week without his badge.

Announcements:   Don't know why but this was probably the least attended meeting since I have been a member.  Only 19 members showed up......could it have had anything to do with the weather?

The Patxi’s Pizza fundraiser took place yesterday but we don’t have any numbers. A show of hands from the membership indicate about 6 members took part in the event.  

Dick Enslow and Tom Guetz, on behalf of the Golf tournament a few weeks ago, presented checks to Jill Wayne for The Center for Hearing, Speech and Language

Scott’s birthday reminder for this week was Ed Bezjak, Jim Rees and Jill Wayne last week.

The results are in (finally) on who qualify for Perfect Attendance for 2012-2013 year and they are: Dave Miley, Tim Pollak, Jim Rees, Bob Schlageter and Don Smith. All but Bob declined any awards or pins, Bob was not present at the board meeting.

Scott’s quotes for the day:   The difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.   Who was the first person to look at a cow and think 'I will squeese those dangly things and drink what evers comes out'.

At the Board Meeting today, Bill Benton and Dave Miley said they have come up with our Sertoman of the Year nominee and the board voted to accept him…..(I’m not telling)

Englewood Chamber of Commerce Awards Luncheon is Oct. 29th a Tuesday so we are canceling our regular meeting on the 31st. We will see later who wants to attend the Luncheon.

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:  Tim Pollak, with a PhD on the wall, brought us up to date on his life story. Tim was born Sep. 6, 1945 on the south side of Chicago. Probably while still in the hospital, their apartment caught on fire and the family moved to the Rogers Park area of Chicago. When in first grade, they moved to Evanston and he went through all grades there. The high school was so large, he went to “East Hall” high school in Evanston.

At 15, he was active in youth groups, debating life. They decided there was no universal purpose to human life. Because of that, he decided to go into clinical psychology. He attended Antioch College and their “cooperative plan of education (classes for one quarter then work in the field for a quarter). He worked in Phoenix, AZ; Boston, MA; Skokie, IL and San Jose, CA to name a few.

Tim was a “consciences objector” at the time of the Viet Nam war and worked in several hospitals instead of fighting. He was accepted to DU in Social Work but wondered why he never heard from the U. of TN. After a phone call and an interview, he was accepted. He graduated with a PhD in Clinical Psych. from the Univ. in 1979.

Tim married the first time in 1981, divorced in 1982, met Ruth in 1983 and married her in 1984. (He didn’t mention what happened in 1985 but it had to be good). Tim and Ruth have their own counseling service called Re Leaf Counseling (303 972-0714). He was introduced to the club in 1989 by Barney O’Grady with Dean Hiss’s help. Tim was club President in 2003/04 and has been very active in the club over the years and was our Sertoman of the Year in 2006.

Dr. Tim has also been doing work on helping people who have Phobias and says it only takes a few minutes with outstanding results. He works out of his house so give him a call. (303) 972-0714 Listen to Tim Pollak.mp3

Program:   Dick Enslow introduced Jill Wayne, Executive Director/Audiologist at The Center for Hearing, Speech and Language, who was here today to accept a donation from both Arapahoe and S.W. Sertoma clubs, the proceeds from the recent golf tournament. Jill gave a little history on how long she has known a couple members, such as Dick Enslow, and a little history of CHSL.
