|* 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|
Dale Bolt was Sertoman of the Day. He started by claiming he shouldn’t have been fined because he had the official form from the website in hand and it specifically states that. Dale arrived in the Brainerd area in 1981 and has two children and 6 grandchildren. In 1981 he starting working as an insurance agent and continues with a very successful office today. He gives his staff credit for his success in the business. He found his friends and his clients in three places: a local business association, church, and Sertoma. He joined in 1986 when Jon Haapajoki was running for international president. “The club grows when you are busy and having fun working for common cause.” was his mantra for a successful Sertoma. His most embarrassing moment was the friendly former sheriff mentioning that one of his three places to find customers must have been jail in the middle of his speech.
|Shannon Wussow wanted to let everyone know the venue for the Alex and Brandon Child Safety Center fundraiser on May 2nd has been changed to Rumbly Hall (downtown). See flyer in business notes for details.|
Everyone Deserves to Be On the Dance Floor!For people with hearing loss, the most exciting nights of their lives can be spent on the sidelines. Everyone belongs on the dance floor. Everyone wants to feel included and hear the music. Everyone deserves to have a memory of their favorite song, and who they were dancing with the night it played. Too often, people with hearing loss avoid the isolation that comes with not being able to hear the D.J.Why? Many families simply can’t afford the expense of hearing aids, so kids miss out on winter dances and more. The isolation keeps them from feeling like they fit in.Remember what it’s like to be young? Help give someone else an unforgettable night!
$100 repairs one hearing aid
