May 2009 with Des Moines Sertoma

The weather is suddenly bright and beautiful -- but Service to Mankind is always in season at the Des Moines Sertoma Club.

200905dms1.gifThe club kicked off its Summer 2009 Fantasy Baseball Camp with an April 28 dinner at the Cub Club at Principal Park, where the coach and several campers joined us. The 11th edition of our baseball skills camp with the Iowa Cubs for hearing-impaired boys and girls ages 7-14 will be held July 13 through July 17. As always, we need volunteers and contributions to make this a wonderful experience for some great kids. And if you know of a child who should attend, be sure to let us know! For contribution information, contact John Badger ((515) 224-0596); for information on attending the camp, contact Paulette Taylor ((515) 224-6408).

May 2009 Sertoma Events

We kick off our May 2009 luncheon calendar with a May 5 visit form Jeff Jungman, chief compliance officer for Bankers Trust. With the intense and increasing scrutiny of the banking industry from regulators, that can't be an easy job. It should be a great presentation.
JoEllen Wolterman of Iowa Hearing Aid Centers is our May 12 speaker. An experienced audiologist, Ms. Wolterman speaks directly to our mission of assisting the hearing-impaired.

Jerry Collins, who has taught at Ruby Van Meter School for 25 years, will visit us May 19 to tell us about the latest news at our favorite school. The club has long ties with this wonderful institution for special-needs kids, and we're proud to support it.

So proud, in fact, that our evening meeting will be our annual fund-raising pitch tournament for Ruby Van Meter School on May 26 at Calvin Manor, 4210 Hickman Road, Des Moines. Contestants play only for the glory, as every penny raised goes to the school, but that only seems to make the games that much more serious. Registration is at 5:15, play starts at 5:30. Sponsor a player, or better yet, test your pitch mettle yourself! See Rick Howe for more info ((515)-278-4200).

Service to Mankind - the need's always there, but helping out is always a pleasure with the Des Moines Sertoma Club. Contact Joe Kristan to be our guest at a meeting and learn more.
