Guests: Alice Perkins, Jim’s wife.
FINES: Randy Smith for a poor representation of President last week….it failed.
Foundation News: The Foundation still has a cemetery plot or two for sale. They are located at Chapel Hill Cemetery. If interested, contact one of the Foundation members or me DonSmith@arapahoesertoma.org and I will forward your contact to one of them. You can view more details on Craig’s list, click here.
Announcements: Randy announced that he has 2 tickets for the Rockies opener, April 6th. They cost $120 each so if interested, contact Randy Smith.
One more week: Doug asked if anyone had any old blankets or coats (new will work) that can be donated to the poor of Arapahoe Co. Some of the students at Englewood H.S. are collecting them to be given out so if you have anything….anything at all, bring them to lunch next week again. After further conversation with Doug, the items are going to the poor/homeless people living by the river. Anything warm will do.
Dave Miley passed around a sign-up sheet for the April 13th K1 Speed go-kart races. Cost is $50 per person but the club gets a percentage of that back. Invite anyone you want, Miley & Co. is buying the pizza. There is a height restriction so if you are too short, you may not be able to drive. Right now the sign-up sheet looks like it needs some more names.
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 on the details.
Attention: The on-line portion of the Raffle has been delayed until Monday, the 26th. The Raffle web pages have been approved by the State so tickets will go on sale via the web and by hand. For all the details, read up on them so you can answer any questions your friends, relatives, and neighbors may have. Hard Tickets can be purchased at the May sale on May 19th or 20th. Web site tickets will go on sale March 26, 2018 and online sales will end on May 15, 2018. Sign up early and let your friends know about these great trips. Get an e-mail list ready to send out, it’s up to us to advertise as much as we can. https://arapahoesertoma.org/
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. Any other ideas? We have the K-1 go-cart event next month with a sing-up sheet maybe next week. Don won’t be there (he will be in Utah driving his BIG buggy) so someone else will have a chance to win…..Maybe even Pat this year but he may want to go practice first.
Sertoman of the Day: Dick Enslow was born Jan 23, 1942 in Aurora, Ill., near the Fox River. He went to school in the Aurora area and received a BS in Industrial Engineering. He went to work for Allis Chalmers. He came to Denver in 1973 for a job offer and was amazed at the weather so he moved here. He went to work for Materials Handling, then went into the reverse mortgage business several years ago but after being told they were going to train him at his expense, he retired.
Dick has been married to Carol for 48 years. She did high school teaching, and then computer sales then went to work for a travel company that got bought out by Delta. They had great benefits. She last did student information systems for the Jeffco school district until she retired in April a couple years ago.
Dick has two kids. His daughter, Kedra, who has given Dick his first grandchild. Son Brad is a couple years younger than his sister and was married recently and plays two man sand volleyball “professionally” (about $100 a year).
Dick was drafted when he was 21 but since he had dislocated his shoulder in high school several times he was rejected at the physical, they never contacted him.
Dick has a gift from a college fraternity brother in a hunting accident. A Pheasant flew up between the 2 of them and Dick got most of the shot which is still there. The shot is lead so it doesn’t get picked up by the airport x-ray machines but his 2 knee replacements do.
Those are the pellet holes.
Dick is going to be our Sponsorship/Finance Chairman again for the new fiscal year. He was brought into the club by the honorable Bill Parchen and was President with a gold coat and gone through most chairs. Dick is one of the more active members, always stepping up to work behind the scene on many fund raising events, such as the golf tournaments and in the past, Bingo. Listen to Dick Enslow.mp3
