July 2008: It's Fantasy Baseball Camp Month!

It's Fantasy Baseball Camp month for Des Moines Sertoma! This is the tenth year of our partnership with the Iowa Cubs to provide a baseball experience for hearing-impaired youth. We still have a few spots open, so if you know of a boy or girl who is hearing-impaired and would like to work with real pro ballplayers, send an e-mail to Paulette Taylor at taylord53@aol.com or call her at 515-224-6408.

The camp will be held at Johnston this year, ending with a day at Principal Park, home of the AAA Iowa Cubs, where the campers will work with actual Iowa Cubs on the stadium field. That evening they will sign the National Anthem before the game.


The camp is just the high point of another great Sertoma month. We have a great set of speakers lined up.

It's been a very quiet year for Drake athletics, so we have no idea what she'll want to discuss.




On July 8, 2008 we host Kent Zimmerman, president and CEO of the Wallace House Foundation. It's a great opportunity to get to know more about an important national historical family with deep Iowa roots.


The July 15 meeting will feature a pet cause of the Des Moines Sertoma club. Dagny Fidler, Vice-Principal of the Ruby Van Meter School, will talk about the latest news at this special and important institution.

Remember: every month is a great month to be a Sertoman! Helping others, great lunch speakers, and good friends are all part of the Sertoma experience. Join us!
