VP Norm Jensen reported Tom Smith had submitted three more hearing aid applications for action at our August 5 board meeting. A great big thank you to several members who checked and cleaned the elephant ear trailer at Mark Kennedy’s warehouse last Saturday. Thanks also to Will Sudduth who has been cleaning and repairing the two dough-rollers. He said that the major job remaining is to repair a bracket in the spare roller. Thanks in advance to Alex Prather who has ordered supplies and will prepare start-up cash. Thanks in advance to Mark Kennedy who plans to pull the trailer downtown next Friday morning and back on Sunday night. Aprons will be in the trailer, but old or new Sertoma shirts are good PR. During today’s meeting we altered the time slots on Friday to eliminate crossover times and several changed their signup times, so we’re looking a lot better. Call Norm at 412-2770 or call me at 877-4789 to change times. We always welcome former members, spouses and relatives, even on a part-time drop-in basis. I’ve ordered comfortable temperatures for Friday through Sunday.

  16 members but no ‘official’ guests, enjoyed a regular breakfast meeting at Scovill Golf Course Banquet Facility. Hugh Rowden introduced his ‘unofficial’ guest, our good long-time member, Rick McVey, who has been enjoying his retirement from ENTA at DMH by traveling and eating late breakfasts at home on Fridays. Chuck Shonkwiler presided.




  VP Will Sudduth announced that next Friday we’ll adjourn early to head downtown to set up the elephant ear trailer. On August 8 Dick Vissering has invited Bob Luther from SCORE to talk about a new program “First Step – Fast Track” for aspiring entrepreneurs. Other speaker assignments: August 15 – Steve Hager and August 22 – Dave Shields. August 29 - Social.           







VP Lance Gauble was glad to welcome back Rick McVey. BRING MORE GUESTS.




                             SOCIAL REPORT


VP Hugh Rowden had no event planned, but he had encouraged Rick McVey to return today in hopes of asking him for a future gig at one of our socials. Of course, next weekend we’ll socialize in the elephant ear trailer.





Substitute sheriff Mike Borders began by telling about his strange (?) skinny-dipping dream – even Julie wanted to hear about it. He tricked us into thinking it was related to his trivia question: “What do the initials DBH stand for?” After collecting from those at the center table, he found that our retired biology professor, Norm Jensen, knew that it stood for “Diameter at Breast Height,” a way to measure the size of older trees. Mike then conducted one of our famous drawdowns for the three-week rollover and Tom Smith’s badge won him $25.
