Kick off the 2008 football season with Sertoma!

We've had a huge summer at the Des Moines Sertoma Club! Our educational booth at the Iowa State Fair hosted 550 hearing screenings, gave away 14,000 pairs of earplugs, and distributed countless pieces of hearing safety educational materials. Our Fantasy Baseball Camp provided an unforgettable experience to 10 hearing-impaired kids; the grown-ups who helped out, including two Iowa Cubs pro baseball players, also had a great time. We had great speakers, and we topped off the month with a picnic dinner at historic Salisbury House.

But we have no time to rest on our laurels! We kick off autumn with a great lineup of luncheon speakers and great plans for continued Service To Mankind!

Dutch Geisinger of Iowa Homeland Security and Emergency Management visits September 9. That has been one busy organization this year, so it should be an excellent session.

20080901-2dms.jpgWe gave a visit from Dick Hewins, retired Roosevelt High teacher, on September 16. Oh, and he was also Olympian Lolo Jones' track coach. He represents the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in Iowa, and we look forward to learning more about that responsibility.

The September 23 speaker will be Polk County Republican Party Executive Director Ted Sporer. It's an interesting political season, and it should be fun to hear from somebody in the middle of the battle.

Our evening meeting on September 30 will be at Legends, 50th Street and Mills Civic Parkway in West Des Moines.

We're always moving the ball at Sertoma. Join us!
