Announcements: Rev. Robinson announced he is leaving…..again.

Scott announced the totals from the Scuba A1 Raffle:

$2551.05 for Sertoma and $7653 went to Craig Hospital.  The club voted to approve the numbers.  Many thanks to Scott and the rest of the members that helped out.

Bill Benton announced:  “Football is here”.  Next Thursday is the first pre-season game at 6pm so we will have a pool….bring money. $2 per square.

Dick Mason asked “who is doing the Newsletter?”.  No one else volunteered when asked by Don via e-mail last week so Gary was more than willing to do it.  Gary is recording the audio and took a couple photos for Don.  You may want to start thinking about how future Newsletters and the Web pages will be handled in case I (Don) isn’t available in the future.

Mason went on to mention 3 things:  One is the King Sooper (New Program) in that we will be receiving $198 the first quarter and we have 17 households signed up.  Dick had information on how to sign up to pass out.  The same information has been on the past Newsletters, including this one.  (is no one reading these Newsletters?).  XC551 is our club’s number in the program but you can just scan for the club on the King Soopers web site when you are signing up.  (see info below)

Second thing:  Gary and Alice brought this up that Amazon Smile has a similar program.  ½% of your purchase will be given to the club.

Third: Regional Convention Oct 10-12th at Embassy Suits in the Tech Center.  More info later. An E-mail was sent out today to all members about the event.  Cindy Markham is scheduled to be at our meeting next week to give more info.  Dick would like us to at least send our President and maybe more.  It does cost…This will be discussed at the next board meeting.

Alice has set up a fund raiser at Angies Restaurant on Pierce Sep. 10 thru 15th.  No coupon needed, just mention Arapahoe Sertoma.  More information and directions will be coming.  Mention this to all your family and friends.

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

Sertoman of the Day:  The ever entertaining Doug Harder enlightened us again today as to his background and achievements.  Robert Douglas Harder (alias Doug) fittingly was born on a Labor Day, Sept 2, 1937, in an oil camp in Houston, Texas near the Rio Grande River. He didn’t stay there long enough to get tall. Doug attended grade schools in Louisiana and Missouri and the 5th through 11th grade (minus one year) in Casper, Wyoming & lived in North Dakota for a short time. While in the fourth grade, he had Scarlet Fever. He finished high school in Englewood. He attended 21 schools in 20 years (slow learner?).

Doug was in the Army National Guard from 1959 to 1966 (his specialty was Communications) and said his squad did a fabulous job of keeping the Commies out of GA. After that, he attended CU and UNC and retired as a Mortgage Broker. He has been a member of Pastor Robinson’s church, Christ Lutheran, for over 49 years and an Elder for 16 years. Shortly after the Katrina disaster, he and Pastor Robinson went down there with a disaster relief team. He said you never want to see such destruction.

Doug has a sister and a brother and has been married to Carolyn since 1963 and they have 4 children and 11 grandkids and 2 great grandkids. Their oldest son Zach, was a member for a short time.  Doug’s son-in-law Joel White has been our program several times.

Doug was brought into the club by Bill Parchen in 1966 and has been president twice and has a Gold coat. He has been on the Foundation Committee and brought in about 63 members to Sertoma. (way to go Doug).    Listen to Doug Harder.mp3
