May 2008: Get on the Fast Track with Des Moines Sertoma!

We start our month of Service to Mankind with our annual highway cleanup at our stretch of I-235 May 3. Meet at the Macedonia Baptist Church on 31st Street just north of the freeway at 7:45 a.m.

The cars go somewhat faster in Newton. On May 6 we hear from Craig Armstrong, general manager of the Iowa Motor Speedway in Newton.

200805-1.jpgLiving legend Jim Zabel returns to the club May 13. Jim has seen a lot, and he'll have some thoughts on the singular year in sports we've just had here in Iowa.

Our own Max Thompson has the floor May 20. Max will talk about how mechanization and high tech have changed farming, and he'll discuss and some of the economic, social, and environmental effects that come with these changes.

200805-2.jpgOur annual pitch tournament is set for Calvin Manor on May 27. Registration at 5:15, play starts at 5:30 SHARP! Sign up now as a player or sponsor. You don't even have to know how to play - trust me, you'll learn in a hurry. All proceeds go to the Ruby Van Meter School, so it's good fun for a great cause.

SPEAKING OF RUBY VAN METER: On May 1st at 1:00 PM Ruby Van Meter School will present its Spring Musical, "I Need A Vacation" in in the Ruby Van Meter School gymnasium. It is a great experience.

ALSO SPEAKING OF RUBY VAN METER: Their annual activity day is June 2, from 8:00 a.m. until noon. Our club will be setting up and running the batting cage so help will be needed to set-up and tear down. It is an exciting and fun day for the students and a great way for Sertoma to stay in touch with Ruby Van Meter School.

There's a lot going on with Des Moines Sertoma. We're about Service to Mankind and making good friends every month. Come join us!
