Guests:    Alice Perkins-wife if Jim; John Loudermilk-friend of Bezjak and new member.

Fines:  Tim got the honors this week, he brought Ruth, his wife….Tim is playing chauffeur taking Ruth to a Dr’s visit after lunch and tried to sneak in a free lunch.

Announcements:  Bill asked Doug if he had anything to say and Doug said there weren’t enough members present today to warrant saying anything.

Bill mentioned the approval the Board made for requests for money: $500 to Step-13 and $550 to Cherry Creek Schools for 2 computers for their adaptive hearing program.

Mike Magee had maps for the tour of the Vehicle Vault which is planned for Friday, Sep. 18th at 2pm. Cost is $6 ea. Which are a couple bucks off the normal price. Bring a friend or wife or someone.

Last weeks Bronco Pool winners are: Marshall, Fry, Mason & Fry.
Since this week’s game is this evening, Bill had to take a little more time selling all the squares so there is no “image” of the pool.

Bill announced that John Laudermilk has been approved for membership in our club. Congratulations John! Glad to have you as a new member.

Scott says he has an application from Joe Gomez. Joe was absent today, he is in for surgery but plans to be here next week.

Speaking of getting new members, here is the team list from Doug: Team List.jpg

Jim Rees has more gift cards (King Soopers), get a card or use the one you have to help offset the clubs expenses. If you need a replacement, you need to get it from Jim, not Kings Soopers. Unfortunately we didn’t have enough purchases to make the quota to get a check but will carry over to the next month.

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:   The birth of Carl Duncan in 1930, like Fred Downs, ushered in the Great Depression. Carl’s parents were school teachers who maintained employment during this era in small rural schools. They met and were married in Burlington. Carl was born in 1930 in Alamosa and 2 weeks later, the family moved to Cortez, CO. and was there his first 6 years of his life. The family moved to the coal mining community of Oak Creek in 1936 where the main form of entertainment was tackle football with or without pads.

In 1940 they relocated to Avondale, a gentle farm community 15 miles east of Pueblo on the Arkansas River where the main form of entertainment was softball. Carl mentioned that per capital, Avondale is the murder capital of the U.S. with 2 murders and a population of 350. In playing softball, Carl’s first painful learning experience was to catch a fly ball with the hands rather than in the chest like a football. Duncan obtained a BA degree from the Univ. of Colorado and was drafted during the Korean War into the 101st Air Borne, was a Company Clerk and was sent to Germany because he could speak the language. He had 5 months of heavy weapon training but ended up playing the French horn in the band.

Carl recovered from the warped mentality instilled by the liberals at CU and obtained an MBA degree form DU and became a CPA, using the GI bill. In 1962 he settled in Denver and was unleashed as a CPA on an unsuspecting public. Carl was brought into the club June 2003 by Steve Bolyard. Carl was married in 1957 to ?? (He never says) they have 3 kids and 8 G-kids.

Program:  Carl changed hats and introduced our program, Dr. Ted Ning who talked about problems with 3rd world development and how he has implemented some programs to help solve many problems.

Dr. Ning started by telling some of his life story which started in China Town, NY. At 8, the family moved to Dayton, Ohio where he thought he had blond hair and blue eyes because he was of the only Chinese family in the area. His parents didn’t know what to do with him when he was young so he got involved with many things including the Boy Scouts and was an Eagle Scout at age 14. He was an instructor with the Red Cross and entered medical school at 19. He was drafted and went to Viet Nam as an Army Dr. and was sent to Fort Carson. After the military, he became an Urologist but his passion was to help people and to follow up on his work back in Viet Nam. His organization today is Starfish one by one.

The mission of Starfish is to unlock and maximize the potential of young women to lead transformational change. Right now, we believe the place where this change is most needed is Guatemala, which has the unfortunate distinction as home of this hemisphere’s worst gender equality gap.

Started in 2008, we teamed up with a few amazing local individuals and embarked on changing the lives of the indigenous girls of Guatemala. We saw that these girls were largely outside of the education system, illiterate and stuck in a cycle that positioned them as overlooked citizens in their own communities.

We know that only 14% of rural indigenous girls in Guatemala completed 6th grade. We know that 3 out of every 5 of indigenous Guatemalan women are illiterate. We know that Mayan girls are at the bottom of every measurement of human development. We aimed to change this and, in turn, to help improve the lives of the entire Guatemalan population.

The Starfish name (previously Starfish One-by-One) originated from the parable of the starfish. We appreciated and valued our ability to influence change by simply “throwing one starfish back into the ocean.” Please see our FAQ’s for more information on our name.
