March, 2008: big-time reporter, big-time hoops!

We kick off March with a March 4 visit by Chuck Stull from Iowa Realty. He may have some thoughts on the interesting times we face in the real estate market.

We get a taste of big-time media at our March 11 meeting. Associated Press correspondent Mike Glover, Chief Legislative Reporter and Political Writer for the Des Moines Bureau of the Associated Press. With the caucuses recently over and the legislature in full swing, this should be a great session.


20080304dms2.jpgArvid Huisman, the new Development Director for the Salvation Army in Des Moines, stops by on March 18. Our club has a long relationship with the Salvation Army. Arvid is an excellent speaker, and we can look forward to a great update on the Army's important work.




20080304dms3.jpgOur evening meeting this month will be on Thursday, March 27, when we check out Des Moines' NBA Development Team, the Iowa Energy. Good hoops, good times.



You can be part of the good times! Send an e-mail to Joe Kristan to learn more.

April 2008: Play Ball!

Only a very few dirty piles of snow still skulk in the shady corners of parking lots. That means it's time for another great Sertoma spring!

Bill Stowe, Des Moines Assistant City Manager for Public Works and Engineering, will be our guest on April 8. We can expect some insight on how his department copes with its difficult weather and political challenges.

20080304dms1.jpgThe legislature should have things about wrapped up by April 22, when Associated Press political reporter Mike Glover visits our club. Mike was unexpectedly called away when he was originally scheduled to visit us last month. He'll have some great perspective about what they've been up to under the big dome.



Our April evening meeting will be Tuesday, April 29, when we officially launch activities for this year's Fantasy Baseball camp at the Cub Club at Principal Park. Social hour begins at 5:00, dinner at 6:00. This was a great outing last year, and you want to miss this edition.
