Dave ClausenDave Clausen again filled in well when the election of officers was postponed with hilarity. He had to display his shirt given to him at the Home and Patio show to help him in his “dream” of becoming a macho construction guy. Dream Builder Hawk Hawkinson even gave him an employment application.

President Gary Walters gave a report on the meetings that have been held in relation to the proposed Christmas Lights fundraiser. Dream Builder Hawk HawkinsonHe made several relevant points: (a) it could raise anywhere from $25,000 to $60,000 (b) it would not replace Pipe and Drape but would instead give some people who cannot participate in Pipe and Drape an opportunity to help raise money for the club (c) it would mainly involve some capital outlay in setting up the site for the first time and Sertoma people willing to sell spots to businesses and clubs as well as man the ticket booth, and (d) now is the time for anyone with an opinion either positive or negative to share it with the members of the board.

Sertoman of the Day
Terry CurtisTerry Curtis who is Director of Business Development for Anderson Brothers Construction Company was today’s Sertoman of the Day. Other than a little spice in his background (running for Miss Pequot while in high school and a background in theater) Terry seems to be a wonderful addition to the club. He is a native of the Crosslake area, in fact his family has lived there since the late 1800’s. He went to school at BCC and UMD eventually graduating with a degree in corporate development and marketing. He and his wife Dee Ann have a brand new son born in March. His hobbies include anything outdoors, home improvements, landscaping and working with youth. He is involved with a committee of volunteers in Crosslake that staffs and runs the Old Fire Hall, a Christian Youth Center. His dream for the future involves trying to create a world . . .”in which all of our kids could live in a kind compassionate environment both in their home and community.” Welcome to Sertoma Terry.

Consider becoming a corporate sponsor at any of these events.

Find a Sawbuck Corner: 
The FAS Program was designed to encourage people to read the newsletter. Even those who attend the meeting can benefit from reviewing the announcements etc. If you find the letters FAS followed by your name, you must call the number provided and just leave a message that you called and attend the next meeting to collect your money. Simple--however 90% of the people never respond.
