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.

April 2008 -- like every month, a great month to be a Sertoman. It's time you joined! E-mail Joe Kristan to learn how.
