April 2010: Time to kick off Fantasy Baseball Camp!

201004-4dms.JPG The glaciers have retreated and green shoots are shooting up. Like the daffodils, Sertoma always is there in the springtime!

We start our April schedule by welcoming Vickie Barth, Director of Nursing at DMAAC, on Tuesday, April 6. She will discuss the looming shortage of nurses and the status of nursing education programs. The Des Moines Sertoma Club has a long history of assisting nursing education, and this should be an excellent way to reconnect with this important community service issue.

201004-1dms.jpgWe host Laurie Phelan, President of Iowa Jobs for America’s Graduates (I-JAG), at our Tuesday, April 20 meeting. I-JAG “is a program to specifically reduce the number of students who are at risk of dropping out and help them to become productive youth.”

April 20 will be a day-night doubleheader for Des Moines Sertoma; in the evening we have our annual Fantasy Baseball Kickoff at the Cub Club in Principal Park. The program, in which local coaches and I-Cub players teach baseball skills to deaf and hard-of-hearing youth, is one of our flagship programs, and the kickoff is always a fun program.

Meeting Schedule Reminder: The club meets for lunch at the Des Moines Club (34th floor) on the First and Third Tuesday of each month. We also have one evening meeting each month. While the traditional date for the evening meeting is the last Tuesday of the month, it varies to accommodate athletic events and other scheduling issues. If you want to double-check the meeting schedule for the month, just visit www.dmsertoma.org, where the current schedule is always posted.

A continuing tradition of Service to Mankind, a great club, and the best speakers in town -- join us!
