The teacher gave her fifth
grade class an
assignment: Get their parents
to tell them a story with
a moral at the end of it.
The next day, the kids came
back and, one by one, began to
tell their stories.
There were all the regular types
of stuff: spilled
milk and pennies saved. But then
the teacher realized, much to her
dismay, that only Janie was left.
Janie, do you have a story to
''Yes ma'am. My daddy told me a
story about my Mommy.
She was a Marine pilot in Desert
Storm, and her plane got hit.
She had to bail out over enemy
territory, and all she had was a flask
of whiskey, a pistol, and a survival
She drank the whiskey on the way down
so the bottle wouldn't break, and then
her parachute landed her right in the
middle of 20 Iraqi troops.
She shot 15 of them with the pistol, until
she ran out of bullets, killed
four more with the knife, till the blade
broke, and then she
killed the last Iraqi with her bare hands.
''Good Heavens,' said the horrified
teacher. What did your Daddy tell you
was the moral to this horrible story?

Steve Smith asked me to
express his regrets for the errors in the
announcement in the Applause section of the
Coloradoan back in October. Some of the names of
the officers/directors were either misspelled or
incorrect. He inadvertently used a few of the
names of last year's directors in announcing this
year's group. He tried to correct it before it
was run, but it just didn't happen.
(Personally, I think Steve's doing as good a job
in trying to talk to the Doloradoan, and I THANK
him for his efforts!)

"Thumbs-up to the North
Fort Collins Business Association for
partnering with the Fort Collins Sertoma Club
to provide American flags on poles along North
College Avenue during patriotic holidays
throughout the years. The flags are provided
by and hung by volunteers from the Fort
Collins Sertoma Club. The flags provide a
welcome, patriotic addition to the North
College Avenue area."

A Note from Craig Secher
In addition to inviting everyone to come to
the free tree lighting ceremony on December 1st
at the First Presbyterian Church I would like
to be able to recognize your club as the
Champions For Children that you truly are. We
have a Champions For Children program that
recognizes those that either donate or help to
raise collectively $3,000 or more for the
We would recognize Fort
Collins Sertoma as Champions if you were able
to reach this level of giving in a couple of
ways: 1) If your club made a $3,000 gift or
2) when you send out the invitation to all
your members when they make their gift they
simply recognize FC Sertoma as their Champion
in the ‘Recognize Your Champion’ tab on the
online donation form or if they send a check
to note FC Sertoma on the memo line. If 30 or
more of your members choose to sponsor a
single light on the NightLights Tree your club
will achieve Champion for Children
