Des Moines Sertoma goes with the flow in November 2009

The Des Moines Sertoma Club features everything from water to art to an intramural cage match (purely civil, of course) this month!

200911-2dms.gifWe ride the tide into November with a November 3 visit by Randy Beavers, the general manager of the Des Moines Water Works. Those of us who have been in town since 1993 remember that we take our water for granted until it's not there. Find out how they keep it flowing!


The November 10 meeting will be unusual. It will be a three-way cage match between club members Jason Stone, Ron Mountsier, and Joe Kristan. Bob Simons, our programming chief, describes it this way:

I'm envisioning a brief discussion of tax credits generally, a bit more on the nature of state tax credits, and then specifics on the film tax credit, and your thoughts on how Iowa got into the questions currently on the table, and how we might recover from these problems.

For a completely fair and balanced discussion of film credits, there is only one reliable source. This week's "Focus" section of the Des Moines Business Record has a good examination of film credits generally. And yes, Joe Kristan can expect heavy fines (again) from the club Sergeant-at-Arms.

Downtown is now home to a fascinating sculpture garden. Our November 17 meeting features Jennifer Cooley, Museam Education Director at the Des Moines Art Center, for a discussion of the Pappajohn Sculpture Park.

The November 17 meeting will be held on the 34th floor of the Des Moines Club at 7th and Grand, rather than the usual Embassy Club location.

As of this writing, we are still firming up plans for the November 24 dinner meeting.

Sertoma: who knew that Service to Mankind could be so much fun? Join the fun today!
