The amazing Power of
recently returned to the club for a free
lunch, and told us what a pleasure it was to
be back, even for a short while. He told
us of many short trips he and Pat have taken,
and of all the brew pubs around, and of the
friend they've made, who saved them from a
possible poison oak affliction.
our annual golf tournament is shaping up . . . .
it's at Mariana Butte again this year. The
cost is $120 if you pay before May 1st, or $135 if
you procrastinate. There will be raffle
prizes awarded this year, as well as a possible
$10K payout for a hole in on on the (Par 3) 8
Mr. Tarantino tells us the, so far, "we have a
foursome" for the Arizona Scramble coming up.

17 guys were disappointed
Friday night last . . . the Rockies game was
rained out. Talk about your turd floater . .
. . certainly not baseball weather. Don
tells us that the game has been rescheduled,
however. Apparently the Rockies never
reschedule, but somehow it's been arranged for
this trip to happen on May 26th, with the Rocks
playing the Diamondbacks. Way to go,
Softball is a GO! Mr. Reiter tells us that
the only reason we want to start a softball team
is to attract some members who are UNDER 50.
Even sadder, Josh Benedict, in charge of
organization, tells us "Don't look at me . . . .
all I know are you guys". He tells us we
have "Thursday night games every Thursday",
through July. That makes 12 games maximum,
plus the playoffs. Mr. Burns wanted to know
"how high the tee is". Reiter, Benedict,
Burns, Reese, Kaup, Dunnigan, Bryan, Martin,
Glaser, & Dusek have signed up, to date. The
club is picking up the cost of doing this, so
don't hold back just 'cause you're broke.
If YOU would like to be a
Charter Member of Sertoma's first softball team in
DECADES, contact Josh at
again, we are scheduled to help with Realities
Ride/Beer Bash. This year we will be
participating on May 29th and
30th, a Saturday and
Sunday. You should check out their web site:
John K. tells us that CSU only has 5 home games
this year instead of the usual six,
so we're looking at a shortfall of 2 grand . . . .
so everyone needs to come out to help at the
Realities Ride to maximize sales.
The TRULY AMAZING power
Manning tells us that we put in over 100 man hours
of work on the corral in Loveland! Since
last July, we've performed over 850 man hours of
NEXT Saturday, we are scheduled to do a little
work for Neighbor-to-Neighbor, at 1550 Blue
Spruce. This is the same place (and doing
the same thing as last year) as we went to last
year. This is trimming of shrubs and trees,
preparing the place for painting this summer.
Work begins around 9 a.m. and will go 'till about
one-ish. As per the Carl Glaser Amendment,
donuts will be provided.
Additionally, N2N is in a national competition to
win money for a $5,000 cleanup! Apparently
Fort Collins is in competition with Lexington, KY.
This is the deal:

also tells us that he has a tool, i.e., a "Fat
Max" implement of destruction. If it's
yours, claim it soon or it will be absorbed into
the United Sertoma Tools for Destruction.
Dunnigan, as he did last year, is putting together
a team for Relay for Life, June 5th and 6th.
Walking begins at 4 p.m. and goes until 8 a.m. the
next day. Shawn invites YOU to come and walk
if you'd like. . . . talk to him to be on his
team, or just show up and help out. Last
year he raised $2,000 for cancer research.
This year the Board has already donated $500
toward his goal of $3,000.
Call him to help out!
Brad Dusek tells us: It is with
great pleasure that I announce my employment
with Cornerstone Mortgage Company!! During
these past 8+ years at First National Bank I
was blessed and will forever be grateful for
the opportunities afforded me there.
In 2006, First National Bank of Omaha’s
mortgage lending arm, Cornerstone Mortgage
Company, was bought by its original founders
Marc Laird and Judy Belanger. I am excited to
announce that I have recently decided to join
them in the terrific company they have built.
This decision was not made lightly, but I felt
that it would ultimately serve my clients’
best interests to become a member of the
Cornerstone family. It is a full-service
mortgage banker with more than 50 offices in
13 states, including Colorado, Nevada and New
Mexico. Founded in 1988, Cornerstone is the
seventh-largest independent mortgage company
in the U.S., and is a Top 30 National Lender.
I firmly believe that with Cornerstone behind
me, I can offer my clients a wider variety of
products and services to help them meet their
financial and home-ownership goals.
Lynn Oesterle-Zollner, the Executive Director
CASA of Larimer County, spoke with us
about her organization.
CASA is an acronym for "Court Appointed
Special Advocates for Children". This
has been one of our club's favorite
organizations for years and years, 'cause they
do exactly what we advocate . . . help kids.
The mission of CASA of Larimer County is "to
provide a volunteer advocate's voice in court
and a safe environment for family interactions
for children who are the victims of abuse,
neglect, or domestic conflict".
Lynn told us that sometimes the kids who are
caught up in these situations only have one
contact throughout the entire ordeal (that can
stretch on for years), and the constant is
often the Advocate. Believe me when I
say that this person can change a child's
Ken Borrett recently
bragged on his wife, Kay's, artistic ability.
He further enhanced that first brag with a
second ($5) brag telling us that she didn't
get Best of Show, but she was awarded the
Winsor & Newton Award. Not only that,
her painting sold!
Additionally, she was notified, just last
Saturday, that her art has been accepted
into the live auction part of
Richard Schmidt's Fall
auction, one of only 50 chosen out
of about 250!
Scheinost had a $5 brag for his wife Marilyn.
He told us how she was diagnosed with a "very
aggressive form or breast cancer", that she has
been fighting for the last year. She's had
everything from surgery to radiation to
chemotherapy, and just this week had a
Pet Scan that shows NO SIGNS of cancer!!
Burns bragged that
"It's raining today, it will be raining
tomorrow, and I have an open house"
IN A VACUUM
A blonde was playing Trivial Pursuit one
night... It was her turn.
She rolled the dice and she landed on Science
& Nature. Her question was, 'If you are in a
vacuum and someone calls your name, can you
She thought for a time and then
asked, 'Is it on or off?'
IOU recently discovered in the Brag Box . . .
. can you make it out????
Last week, Rob Allerheiligen
reported that his 16 year old grandson was playing
in Chicago for the National Hockey Championship.
Well, seems his team didn't win. Not only
did they not win but they didn't end up in third
place. Curiously enough, technically
speaking, as Rob puts it, they ended up in SECOND!
Not too shabby, at that!
We will be meeting at the Aztlan Center beginning
on June 4th.
