Benton warned us that August 1st will be the beginning of the football season and therefore the Bronco pool fundraising.

Tim asked how many people would like a district directory and who need a binder for it. The few that wanted one responded.

There was no SOD and no speaker, so we had a general board meeting to cover a few topics.

If you don’t know what to do or how to perform your duties, ASK.  You can also go on OUR web site and get info on how to do most jobs.  Check out: or search Sertoma International but do learn about your job.  There is no excuse to get half way through your one year term and not know what your job duties are.

Doug asked Mike to come up and read the letter nominating Joel D. White, Douglas County Sheriff’s Dept.

He is a member of a Lutheran Church in Denver, CO. Joel is active in the Brotherhood of the Fallen.

Dick Mason mentioned that our Sertoma District will be dissolved as of the end of June and what money the district had was distributed to the clubs in the district. We received $237. Tim made a suggestion that the money should be given to our foundation. After a really negative response from our members, he sat down.

No meeting on the 4th of July.

Gary asked that the new members fill out the page for our book and give it to him and come to him if they have any questions regarding the club.

King Soopers is changing their program to do away with the extra card you have to carry and to put money onto.  It will NOT interfere with your other rewards, it is part of it.

There seems to be some confusion on using or getting signed-up for the King Soopers Program.  It shouldn’t be that hard.  Just follow the above instructions.  If you are problems, get a hold of someone to help you.  If you go to King Soopers and ask about this, take a copy of the above information with you.  Some stores seem to not know what you’re talking about.  It is now called:  KING SOOPERS or City Market COMMUNITY REWARDS PROGRAM
