Sertoman of the Day: n/a
Program: Gary introduced Cindy Markham, who is temporarily unemployed from Sertoma as the District Governor. She had to postpone her visit here due to her mother passing not to long ago but is here to fill us in on all she has to share.
Cindy talked some about the new way Sertoma is doing things. She mentioned that one reason they are doing away with the District Governor is that about 50% of them didn’t know what they were doing, let alone, they didn’t even know how many clubs they had in their District. Also, many of the Governors had been doing it for many years and couldn’t get replacements. ( sounds like us trying to get new officers ).
She also mentioned her club is doing October fest again this year on September 28th. $35…beer, wine and food with a DJ and dancing. Can you Polka? Contests and prizes…at South Glenn CC.
No longer is there a Presidents Round Table meeting. It’s now, anyone can attend on the 2nd Monday of the month at 6pm at Parry’s Pizza in SouthGlenn.
She really came here to talk about the Regional Convention coming up soon. It’s going to be VERY DIFFERENT…this year. Face will be performing, most of the members are from Colorado. Cindy disclosed that she was once the baby sitter to one of the members of the group. She is actually raising money on the side to pay the discounted cost that the group would normally charge. The club voted to cover the amount she was short…..THANK YOU.
The convention is Oct 10-12th. Can you imagine, Cindy told us to “Get a Room” WHAT….$99 a night with amenities. Embassy Suites in the Tech Center.
Listen to Cindy Markham.mp3 Be sure to listen to the very end for more details on the convention.
