Song:   Chad Kasson   Pledge:    Doug Harder
Prayer:   Rev. Robinson

Guests:  Barbara Magee, Mike’s wife:   Angela Graves, Rev. Robinson’s LSC.

Fines:    Late arrival;  Mike was fined for bringing Barbara and while he was paying the fine, she was serving food to the Perkins’s and Orian because the caterer had forgotten to bring serving utensils.

Announcements:  The Christmas Party is tomorrow Dec. 14th at Racoon Creek Golf Course.  Surf & Turf  $25/person.  I think Mike said everyone is paid up?

Rick Jacobus and his team of essay readers knocked out the pile of essays they had to read so thanks to all his readers for showing up and doing that.  They had 7 schools this year.

Gary attended the Presidents meeting and it sounds like National is going ahead with getting rid of the local Governors.  This should be interesting.  They are looking for people to fill positions for teams and need Communication Specialists, Mission Specialists and Training and Support Specialist so if you want to volunteer, contact Cindy before the end of the month.  This is all we know for now.

Broncos winners last week:  Jim Perkins, Magee, Stein & Benton.

It was decided at the Board Meeting that we should have a SOD on the second meeting of each month…..minimum.  This will help the guys that provide programs and get a little more participation from the members.   If there is no program or they don’t show up on the other dates, the next person up for SOD please step up and present yourself…..again.  I entered the next 2 members that are up to the calendar, see below.

A meeting was held Monday with several members on next year’s raffle with A1 Scuba.  I forwarded Scott’s meeting minutes to all members.  Things are starting to move and this time we hope everyone will help by getting the word out about our on-line ticket sales.  We will get about 25% of the proceeds after expenses so need everyone’s help.  There will be a lot more on this in the near future.

The Foundation still has a Cemetery plot & Burial Vault at Chapel Hill Cemetery in Centennial.  Contact Carl or Tim if interested.  When I get the link for Craig’s list I will send it out.

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?

Doug Harder is our new Membership Director and handed out a sheet with places to enter names or places to find potential new members.  Everyone is expected to participate.

Our New Web link…https://arapahoesertoma.org/  built with the help of Karie Farr, whose business is www.ideashop.com .  The old web address will not exist shortly so bookmark the new one.

Sertoman of the Day:  No SOD because we have a program.

Program:    Mike Magee introduced  Dale & Gloria Hand.  Dale is a past President of the Arapahoe club back in the early 90’s and a couple years later he and Gloria moved north to the Loveland area where the club he is in has over 80 members (what are they doing different?).

Dale and Gloria took a little vacation to Africa and came today to share some photos and what it was like there.  The name of their presentation is Great Travel Experiences.   Since the presentation was mostly a slide show, please listen to the audio recording.   Dale and Gloria.mp3
