Announcements:  Norm Schillo is doing great but still weak, needs to be on his oxygen and is getting great care.  He has been moved to extended care at the same location and would like phone calls.

It was reported that Mike Ballew took a little tumble and was in Parker Hospital but may be out of there shortly.  Don’t think it was to serious.

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.

Bob Buckland gave an update on the fund raising event for spinal cord injuries that was held last Friday.  The Foundation bought a table for 10 for whoever is interested but no one from the club attended.  SO, Bob’s granddaughter got her friends to fill the table and they raised over $12,000.  the whole event raised over $90,000.

Last week’s winners of the Bronco’s pool were:  Mason, Hunter, McKim and Fry.    View this weeks Pool:   Broncos v Ariz.

John V.  pitched an event his step daughter is in,  Westernaires.  Saturday, October 27 and Sunday October 28.  John was selling tickets or donations…..See Flyer.

Tim is out of the Directory inserts.

The Englewood Chamber lunch I believe is Oct 30…a Tuesday and we will have a lunch meeting that Thursday, Nov 1st  because of a low sign-up for the Chamber event.

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?

Sertoman of the Day:  Gary Athey was born in Denver September 3, 1943.  His family moved from the Denver area to Englewood in 1956,  He attended Flood Jr. High and Englewood High School and graduated in 1961, then went to Denver University from which he graduated in 1965 and went on to D.U. Law School.  He did not complete law school because he got caught up in the Vietnam era.

He decided to go into the service and get it behind him.  He served 4 years in the Air Force going to Vietnam and working in various legal offices.

After separation from the Air Force, he worked for Gated Rubber Co. as a foreman and later as assistant plant manager for Carefree Corporation.  In 1975 he took a job as a branch manager for Emblem tape and Label Co. in Salt Lake City.

From that job he opened a total of 3 other businesses and supplied the semiconductor and computer industries.  He was divorced in 1981 and granted custody of his children.  In 1983 he moved back to Englewood and cared for his parents and an uncle.  He was fortunate to hold his business together due to some dedicated employees.  Luckily he also found his current wife Pat in 1992.  She has helped him immensely.  He has had a very full life with many activities and longtime friends from high school, college and business.  He looks forward to serving with his fellow Sertoma members.

In Gary’s short time in the club, he has taken it upon himself to gather the Bio’s of all the active members and put them in a nice binder.  He wants the club to grow and be more involved in community events and fund raisers and I’m sure we will be hearing more of Gary’s thoughts and ideas in the future.  Glad to have him in the club.

Program:   n/a.   Gary took the whole time slot for his SOD slide show into his life.  Next week we have a program but if for some reason he doesn’t make it, the next person in line for SOD is Bob Buckland.  It was going to be Bezjak but he is heading to AZ that day so we wont hear from him until next year…
