Guests:   Bryn Boyer, Jim Robinson’s life skills coach.

Fines:  A phone or two went off.

Announcements:   Another light turnout, not sure why, only had 21 in attendance.

Peter Pauwels took over for Scott as the acting President (making up for all the times he was fishing). Scott was having some minor surgery or some such thing.

Jim Rees had something to say but the parties to whom he wanted to say it to were absent so he will try again next week. I bet it had to do with late dues.

Peter read a Thank You letter the club received from The Center For Hearing, Speech & Language for the monies we donated to them from the recent Golf Tournament.

Englewood Chamber of Commerce Awards Luncheon is Oct. 29th a Tuesday so we are canceling our regular meeting on the 31st. A signup sheet was passed around for 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:  Pastor Jim Robinson was born in St. Louis, Missouri, on September 26, 1946. He was raised Lutheran and got into the ministry because his uncle was a pastor. His Mom and dad were both in the Navy, he was Army (blended family)

Jim graduated from seminary in 1972 and started his new profession in MO. He joined the Army 21 June 1977 and served as a chaplain. He served all over the world but it sounded like he spent a lot of time in Germany, including East Germany and he retired in 2005 after 29 years and then he came to Colorado. Jim was the chaplain that blessed the first five bodies off the USS Cole.

I forgot to take his photo this time so here is last Dec. photo

Jim was Pastor of Christ Lutheran Church until his near fatal injury, now he is an Associate Pastor and tends after one of the greatest sinners of all time, Doug Harder. Jim was a disaster response guru for his area and helped a lot with the mess in New Orleans, along with Doug. He still has no memory between Oct and Nov 2007.

Jim has one sister, along with two children and two grandchildren with his wife, Vicki whom he married 6 Aug. 1972. Parchen claimed credit for arresting Harder the first time, putting him on the road to Deaconship. Doug Harder brought Jim into the club. Listen to Jim Robinson.mp3

Program:  Orian Hunter (aka The King) introduced Matt Crane, Arapahoe County Clerk & Recorder. Matt came to give an overview of his office which is made up of four divisions: Administration, Elections, Motor Vehicle/Driver’s License and Recording.

Mostly, Matt gave us an update on some of the new elections rules that have been put in place and what to expect in the near future with his office, including the branch offices. He also informed us of some of the information you can now get by going to the Arapahoe County web pages…such as which is the main County web page, for Arapahoe County Elections and how about the District Attorney’s Office for the 18th Judicial District where you might get a visit from them should you try to vote more than once or some other impropriety.

Matt had a power point presentation for which you can view here: Clerk & Recorder's Office 9.26.13.pdf and you can listen to Matt Crane.mp3 here.
