Dick Mason gave a brief explanation of what is going on with the King Soopers Card program.  Well, King Soopers is changing their program to do away with the extra card you have to carry and to put money onto.  Now, if you have a Rewards card and designate a charity, King Soopers with automatically donate a percentage of your purchase to the charity when you swipe the card at checkout.  If you don’t already have a Rewards Card (why don’t you?), go to their service desk and get one.  Not only do you get some great savings but also fuel discounts.  Once you have a card, you will sign onto their web site and tell them what charity you want the donation to go to.  It will NOT interfere with your other rewards.  Click here for details of the program.

****THE RAFFLE IS LIVE, THE RAFFLE IS LIVE****

We have sold 87 tickets online and Mason and Buckland have hard copies of tickets.  Let’s all do our part in promoting this thing, get the word out.  The drawing is May 19 but on-line sales end May 15th.

Business cards were passed out to all members with the details for the Raffle and links on how to get to the Raffle web site.  We need everyone’s help in promoting this.  I will have more stuff to send shortly but for now, talk to family and friends and pass out the cards you got.  One thing you can do is when emailing your family and friends, just add the web link at the bottom of your email with a short title.  Also, suggest to them that they help spread the word.

This year’s Field of Dreams Baseball camp is in need of kids.  Spread the word and if you need information on it, goto  www.sertomafieldofdreams.com  Registration must be received by June 8, 2019.

Sertoman of the Day:    Phil Grimm jumped in to be the Program/SOD today because he didn’t have a Program.  (he wants ideas for programs).

Mr. “It was a dark and stormy night” Phil Grimm came once again to tell us a bit about his life.    BUT:  he changed up and made this The Story of the Three Bills:  Bill Anderson, Bill Parchen and “It’s in the Book” Bill Worth.  In the late 50’s, Phil joined the Englewood JC’s….and it went on from there, you have to listen to his talk, very interesting (click link below).  Oh, and don’t forget Bill Benton…

It was a dark and stormy night (or day) on November 18, 1934, at Porters Hospital, when Phil Grimm decided to come into the world, backwards.  The Dr’s at that time weren’t real sure how to deal with this kind of birth so they needed some help.  Phil attended Lincoln Elementary, Grant Jr. High and Englewood Sr. High, graduating in 1952.  He then took Pre-Dental at DU for one year and participated in Air Force ROTC and dated a WAC.

At about this time, he met Marlys (who had Cheerleader legs), a Dental Assistant for Phil’s Uncle and in 1953, they were married.  They have 3 kids and 4 grand kids.  He was brought into the club by Bill Anderson and Bill Parchen.  In 2002/2003, Phil was the club President after going through most of the chairs.

Phil started his working career doing summer jobs like building a house, shoveling up to 20 tons of manure a day and buffing cars.  In 1957 he went into the sign business and retired from it in 2001.  Now he plays tennis, golf and cards to stay busy. Listen to Phil Grimm.mp3
