news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:   Most of the club members gave John a warm welcome by walking out of the room when John was introduced. As soon as John said he had $5, everyone returned to hear John’s wonderful and inlighting story. John Vierthaler was born in 1941, the son of Immigrants. His Father is from Austria and fought in WWI for the Kaiser. His mother was from the Austria-Hungarian Empire. They both immigrated to Pittsburgh, PA independently and met while they lived there. John was born in Pittsburgh and grew up on the Ohio River.

John went to Aspen Wall HS in Aspen Wall, PA. it was torn down about 10 years after he graduated. John went on to Grove City College in Grove City, PA., a private college founded by the heirs of the Sun Oil Company. It is a very independent college.

In 1963, he was in Air Force ROTC because they had mandatory military service and paid $30 a month. Graduated with a commission as a 2nd Lt. Spent 3 years in Atlanta, "defending our nation". Went to Law School at Emery University in Atlanta, GA at night. Got out of the military and transferred all his credits to the University Of Pittsburgh School Of Law and graduated a year later. Worked for Alcoa as a corporate attorney. Later went to work for his father-in-law. By this time he was up to three kids. The family used to come up to Colorado to ski. After four years of trips, Brenda, his wife, convinced John to move to Colorado. He moved out with two adults, three kids, two dogs, and two cats. (They lost one of their cats in Russell, Kansas).

John worked for Bill Malone who inducted him to the club in October of 1980. He opened his own office after leaving Bill's firm. He has been in the same office at the corner of Wadsworth and Bowles for the past 22 years. John does estates and trusts, real estate, small business and civil law.

Brenda passed away a few years ago, then he was remarried for a short time and now he is single BUT, he just informed us that he is engaged to Cindy. He farms for a hobby, tends dry land and raises horses and chases coyotes on horseback for fun. Name of the farm is “Four Valley Farm” because in Austrian his name translates into "four valleys". BUT, he just informed us he is getting out of that business and going to have a sale of all his equipment. He does not plan on retiring though, he likes law just to much for that. Listen to John Vierthaler.mp3

Program:   Rick Jacobus introduced John Ostermiller, the current Chair of the South Suburban Parks & Rec. Board of Directors. John came to give us a little history and some of what the future may hold for SSPRD and showed a short video of some of the facilities they have.

Mission Statement:
The mission of the South Suburban Park and Recreation District is to foster healthy living through stewardship of the environment, parks, trails, and open space and by providing recreational services and programs.

About Us:
The South Suburban Parks & Recreation is a quasi-municipal corporation and a political subdivision of the State of Colorado, formed in 1959 pursuant to state law, for the purpose of providing recreational facilities and services for District residents.
