Karen Munsterteiger thanked everyone for their participation in the Mariucci Fiesta. Jeff Olson talked about the famous restaurant lady who every year makes suggestions. She loved the onion rings, she wants the recipe. The fish was suberb. Jamie had a lot of fun, the weather was awesome until the little rain storm. It was one of the smoothest events in a long time. Lots of new faces and the old regulars made it a lot of fun.

|Would NOT have been Lottie Oehrlein|
|Guests: Chastity Eckstrom, Nancy Grant, Keith Wieser, a potential member from Clifton, Larson Allen|
|* Everyone is encouraged to bring potential members to a Sertoma meeting with the Club picking up the cost. However, you will be billed $11.00 for any other guests.|
As greeter you have several duties. You need to arrive about 10 minutes early. It is your job to greet people, help them find their badges and sell them a ticket if they wish to participate. The money collected must be divided by the Greeters equally–half goes to the Current Club Treasurer for the social committee and
half goes to the Club President along with the bucket of tickets. Greeter duties now include handing out the volunteer cards to
everyone as they come in the door. They will still be collected in the bucket with the badges or can be submitted to the treasurer. Be there by 11:45 and call somebody to substitute for you if you can’t be there.
|Sertoman of the Day|
|The Sports Boosters appreciated their use of the pipe and drape through Bryan Barrer.|
The Mariucci pictures are up on the FB page but here is a quick peek.
A passer-by watched two Irishmen in a park. One was digging holes and the other was immediately filling them in again.
‘Tell me, ‘said the passer-by, ‘What on earth are you doing?’
‘Well, ‘said the digger, ‘Usually there are three of us. I dig, Fergal plants the tree and Sean fills in the hole.
Today Fergal is away unwell, but that doesn’t mean Sean and I have to take the day off, does it?’
The Scotch Joke for Allen:
So the bartender lines up 20 shots of his best Scotch Whiskey and watches this guy down one after the other.
“Man,” the bartender says, “I’ve never seen anyone drink shots that fast!”
“You’d drink them that fast too if you have what I have,” the guy says.
“Oh my God,” says the bartender, “what do you have?”
