Put your thinking caps on and come up with ideas for programs. Our Directors are running out of ideas. Also, how about some club events? Miley mentioned one at Top Golf.
Sertoman of the Day: Don Smith gave another outstanding recall of his past up to the present with just a couple changes: He no longer owns a dirt bike due to a minor injury but more so he doesn’t want any more injuries. Also his new hobby/adventure is being a member of the Civil Air Patrol. There is a better chance now that a missing plane, missing hiker or new fire hotspots will be detected sooner with him in the plane.
Don Smith was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1946. His parents were both Colorado natives and were transferred back to the Denver area six months later.
After the Navy tour, Don went to work in Southern California as an assembly line worker for a company that made metal desks, then Orange County Communications and then worked for a rock, sand and gravel company. Due to back pain from an automobile accident 3 years earlier, he packed up the family and moved to Nebraska were he did land leveling for a couple years before going to tech school to learn electronics. After school, he worked for King Radio in Kansas.
Don started working for the railroads in 1980 when he hired on with the ATSF in Emporia, KS. In 1984, he transferred to Pueblo and worked there until his job was abolished. He ended up quitting the Santa Fe and worked briefly at CFI Steel Mill in Pueblo, then with the D&RGW RR. In 1993, he was laid off and 4 months later, was hired by the BN (BNSF) in Denver and had been there until his retirement Sep. 2nd, 2012. 2 months later he turned 65 so is now both retired and on the government’s health plan (Medicare). Don married #3 (Jean) in 1996, she gets credit for the look and feel of our web page and newsletter. His current hobbies are dirt bike riding, sometimes with McKim, driving the trains at Tiny Town (no more) in the summer and driving a pick-up van for Project C.U.R.E. He is now making some contacts so he can do a little flying. Mike Ballew brought him into the club about 21 years ago. Listen to Don Smith.mp3
