Tim reported that Carl Duncan is home now and doing re-hab.

Dean Hiss was visited by a couple members and is doing well.  He is apparently outnumbered by all the women at the place he is in and wont leave.

Scott passed around a donation box for his granddaughter.

Dick Mason has new King Soopers cards for $25. The club receives %5 back when you use them but don’t let the amount on them get to zero or the card is no good and you would have to buy another one. You can add more value to the cards, just ask Dick.

Dave Miley has again scheduled the Annual K1 Speed go-kart races for April 13th @ 6pm sign-in.

Sertoman of the Day:    Rick Campbell was born in Geneva, Illinois in 1953. Grew up in Illinois, went to High School at Glenbard West at Hilltop, it is still standing. Served in the military for 2 weeks, he was number 5 in the draft. Two weeks prior to reporting for basic, Nixon called off the draft but he did get inducted into the Army. Rick went on to College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, Il. Started as an electrical engineer, but did not like the number crunching as much as fixing cars.

Rick went to college for a year. He came out to Colorado on a ski vacation and enjoyed walking around in a tee shirt in the middle of winter (1973) and decided to come out and stay permanently. He had met Renee when he was in High School, they started dating during college and she came along when Rick moved west in 1974. They have been happily since 1974 and they have 3 girls. The eldest of his daughters is a teacher at Ft. Logan Elementary. The middle child is a nurse at Porter. The youngest is a homemaker due to the recently arrival of twins. Rick and Renee now have 7 grand kids. One of the grand kids was born on 5-5-05.

Rick runs an auto collision repair service (Auto Body & Frame Clinic of Colorado) which he opened in 1979 and it’s close to the Elks’ club (which is convenient because of the poor driving abilities of the club). His dad was in the auto body parts business. He gave Rick a beat up car and told him by the time you get it all fixed up, you will be old enough to drive it. Dr. Tim brought Rick into the club and he has held several chairs including President & Chairman of the Board.    Listen to Rick Campbell.mp3
