Our esteemed President, Dan Kaup, with his
one (and only!) golf trophy
Norm Rehme was in attendance in absentia
through the modern miracle of electronics.

to report on Dan Kaups
ONLY golfing win. Dan had offered a
the club to find out the details of that win.
Anyone who did so would receive a free round
in our tournament this week.
to know 1. The tournament that he won,
2. Team members,
3. the score, and 4. what type of ball he
Norm ferreted out the facts, as follows:
1) It was an ice fishing tournament,
with 27 holes drilled with
ice augers 2) there were 3 clubs used with 3)
two partners. Their score was 16 under
This was a fund-raiser for the Lions Club, by
Turns out it was also a fundraiser for us as
well. In true Sertoma fashion, Norm
asked Dan to donate his winnings of $115 to
recognized the work our club has done over the
past years, especially in
regard to youth baseball and The Lug Nuts.
Seems we sponsored these kids, beginning when they
were around eight years old, and they have
just won their THIRD state championship in
baseball as seniors. Sadly enough, as
seniors, this is the last year any of these kids
will be playing together, it seems.
These weren't close games, by the way. Woody
told us that they won the state championship games
by an overall score of 86-15! The closest
any team came in the playoffs was 15-4.
If you ever have doubts about what kind of
influence WE can have on kids, remember this team
that our club made happen, and think of the
camaraderie and good fellowship they must have had
over the years!

Shannon recited a story to us a a reminder to
always look at what we put in our mouth!
Seems he popped a coupla' multi-vitamins one
morning on his way out, and soon found himself
bouncing from wall to wall down his hallway.
When he woke up three hours later in the
hospital, IV in arm, ('cause Diane thought he'd had
a stroke), he soon figured out that his wife had
set her sleeping pills down close to his vitamins,
and he went to never-never land for a short
vacation. Whatta' guy!
Borrett bragged (with a check to the Foundation)

on Sunday, June 28th beginning at 5:30 p.m. at
We are noted as one of the
prime sponsors for this series.
We really get a lot of "bang for our buck" here .
. . as I recall, our
past donation of $2,500 resulted in a $20,000
donation to Respite Care and Pathways Hospice.
"Five Pianos and a Harmonica" is what Don called
Tickets are $50/person,
reserved tables $350 for four people. As
before, we have a table reserved for us, so you
might speak with Dan to see if there is
a ticket still available. If not, go
anyway . . . it's for a good cause.
The Realities event went well, Johnny K tells
us . . . we sold "over 1,700 beers (not
drinking quite that many). We had
about 30 Sertomans participate, netting about
$4,600 bucks. As you can see from
some of us had more fun than others!
We got a nice "Thank You" note from
Spellbinders this week, as well as a
"Thumbs Up" in the Doloradoan! We donate
(I think $250) to them every year when they
ask. This is another program where our
money goes a long way.
"Spellbinders is dedicated to spreading the
magic of oral storytelling by training
volunteers to become storytellers in their
founder of the local Spellbinders group,
recently told us they have told oral stories
in 38 schools, 196 different classrooms, and
more than 6,635 students, for a total of
over 27,000 listeners in the 2008 - 2009
school year. WOW!

Sutter's name was drawn to win the pot (AGAIN!),
but he wasn't there.
We had David May, from
the FC Chamber speak with us on Friday, the 5th.
He had a quote I particularly
enjoyed: "If you're not at the table, you're
on the menu". So true.
MEETING this week. GOLF at Mariana Buttes!!
Installation Banquet will be held at Wil Holz's
house this year. He had a narrow window
of availability, which helped with the choosing of
the date of Sunday, July 26th.
If YOU received on of
our special awards last year, remember that
it is YOUR responsibility to find a new recipient!
HERE for a
refresher as to who our recipients were.
Danielson won the pot May 21st, but he was not in
year's Sertoman of the Year, Bill Benton will be
contacting YOU soon if you have been
a SOY. We will need to choose one for this
Ken Reiter brought a "Thank
You" from the Fossil Ridge Framers that we
provided $2,200 to buy tools
with to get them started in their framing careers.
Smith had his first brag . . . he wrote it out for
Shawn Dunnigan to read to us 'cause he didn't
think he'd be here. Seems he gave money to
Shawn to sign up for the golf tournament and Shawn
didn't quite make the meeting. Steve
has given notice that if he doesn't make the
cutoff to signup for the tournament,
he has Shawn's number!
Scott thanked everyone who turned out to help
paint the house a few weeks back.
Zipster . . . . he's arranged a chili cook-off
for us at least twice now, and had even gotten
"The Great Lewdini" to perform for us on July
16th, but the cook-off keeps getting bumped for
one reason or another.
He most recently had it scheduled for July 25th,
but Wil's house was only available for that
weekend (for the Installation), so Dick's back to
the drawing board. Keep up the good work,
Zip . . . it IS appreciated!

The 75 Skills Every Man Should Master
man can be expert in nothing, but he must
be practiced in many things. Skills. You
don't have to master them all at once. You
simply have to collect and develop a
certain number of skills as the years tick
by. People count on you to come through.
That's why you need these, to start.
A Man Should Be Able To:
52. Step into a job no one wants to
do. When I was 13, my dad called
me into his office at the large urban
mall he ran. He was on the phone. What
followed was a fairly banal 15-minute
conversation, which involved the
collection of rent from a store. On
and on, droning about store hours and
lighting problems. I kept raising my
eyebrows, pretending to stand up, and
my dad kept waving me down. I could
hear only his end, garrulous and
unrelenting. He rolled his eyes as the
excuses kept coming. His assertions
were simple and to the point, like a
drumbeat. He wanted the rent. He
wanted the store to stay open when the
mall was open. Then suddenly, having
given the job the time it deserved, he
put it to an end. "So if I see your
gate down next Sunday afternoon, I'm
going to get a drill and stick a
goddamn bolt in it and lock you down
for the next week, right?" When he
hung up, rent collected, he took a
deep breath. "I've been dreading that
call," he said. "Once a week you gotta'
try something you never would do if
you had the choice. Otherwise, why are
you here?" So he gave me that. And
53. Sometimes, kick some
54. Break up a fight. Work
in pairs if possible. Don't get
between people initially. Use the back
of the collar, pull and urge the
person downward. If you can't get him
down, work for distance.
55. Point to the north at any
time. If you have a watch, you can
point the hour hand at the sun. Then
find the point directly between the
hour hand and the 12. That's south.
The opposite direction is, of course,
56. Create a play-list in which
ten seemingly random songs provide a
secret message to one person.
57. Explain what a light-year
is. It's the measure of the
distance that light travels over
58. Avoid boredom. You have
enough to eat. You can move. This must
be acknowledged as a kind of freedom.
You don't always have to buy things,
put things in your mouth, or be
59. Write a thank-you note.
Make a habit of it. Follow a simple
formula like this one: First line is a
thesis statement. The second line is
evidentiary. The third is a kind of
assertion. Close on an uptick.
Thanks for having me over to
watch game six. Even though they won,
it's clear the Red Sox are a soulless,
over-marketed contrivance of Fox TV.
Still, I'm awfully happy you have that
huge high-def television. Next time, I
really will bring beer. Yours,
60. Be brand loyal to at least
one product. It tells a lot about
who you are and where you came from.
Me? I like Hellman's mayonnaise and
Genesee beer, which makes me the
fleshy, stubbornly upstate
ne'er-do-well that I will always be.
61. Cook bacon. Lay out the
bacon on a rack on a baking sheet.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
