Song:   Bill Benton                 Pledge:    Jack Thompson
Prayer:  Rev. Robinson

Guests:  Alice Perkins, Jim’s wife:  Lisa, Rev. Robinson’s LSC

Fines:  To the Chair and Rick Jacobus for a bad joke BUT, Randy forgot that Rick is the SOD.  That backfired.

Announcements:   Scott gave a run down on the Raffle results.  Two young ladies purchased tickets at A-1 and they were the winners.  It was reported that they couldn’t be happier.  Thanks for all the help with the A-1 raffle.  Our numbers were down a bit this year but we still pulled in $12,320.  Given the weather I think it came out really well and now that we are up with on-line sales I think we can push Waves and Craig to do more work in using their mailing lists for sales and that should bring more attention to our Web site and what Arapahoe Sertoma does for the community

May 31 will be the Clubs Leadership conference so all members are encouraged to attend lunch.  There will not be a scheduled program that day.

Information on this year’s Installation Banquet suggestion was sent via e-mail and everyone that that replied said Mimi’s would be a good choice. They are about a block south of C-470 off of the Yosemite exit.  Mike reserved their private room for June 28, 2018 starting at 6:00PM.  Since this is a Thursday, there will not be a lunch that day.

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.

Our New Web link…  built with the help of Karie Farr, whose business is she also built the web page for A-1 Scuba.   If you need her service or know someone that does, have them go to her web page.

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?

Sertoman of the Day:   Rick Jacobus ( aka Night Owl), born 23 July, 1936 in Grand Rapids, Michigan (same hospital as President Ford but 2 years later) but grew up in Ohio on an Army base until he was a junior in high school at which point the family moved to CO when in 1953 and graduated from Sheridan High in 1954.  He worked for Public Service about 3 years when a co-worker advised him to go to college.  A grad of UNC, Greeley with a degree in Distributive Education, Rick gave up teaching school (elementary phs ed) after one year but went on to a successful 35 year career in the insurance field.

Rick lives with his wife Bonnie, they were married in June of 1962.  They have a son, Rod,  who lives in LA, and a daughter Jill,  whose husband and kids live in this area, which gives Rick a chance to spoil the 2 grandkids twice a week.

Rick missed joining the Navy by one day, he was going to sign up but a letter from the Army, forwarded from Harder which stated Rick had received his 2S-deferment into the Army.  That was close.  He was in the NAVY Reserve and Air Force ROTC.

A member of Arapahoe since 24 July, 1974, Rick has done it all including President (79-80), Secretary, Governor, District Governor in 1982-83 and more.  He mentioned how he was instrument in getting a club to shut down.  He was recruited into the club by who else, Doug Harder, who was also Rick’s Best Man.  He did not win a Gold Coat, thanks to Harder.  Listen to Rick Jacobus.mp3


Program:  John Vierthaler introduced Jullian Allison from Byers Evans House.  Jullian is a Colorado native, graduated from West High and CU with a degree in Anthropology, then San Francisco State with a Graduate degree in Museum studies.  For the last 3-1/2 years she has been the Director at Byers-Evans House.

Center for Colorado Women’s History at Byers-Evans House

The Center for Colorado Women’s History focuses on scholarship, research, lectures, tours and exhibits that expand the understanding and collective memory of the history of women in Colorado. Most importantly, the Center is connecting local stories to the broader stories of women’s history worldwide.

The Byers-Evans House has been the home to inspiring women since 1883.  It has been beautifully restored to the era of 1912-1924 and is furnished with the Evans family’s belongings.  Guided house tours weave together the stories of the many women who lived and worked in the home and the impact of the families on early Denver.
