Sertoma hits the Highway in May 2010!

I-235.pngSertoma hits the road May 1 for the spring clean-up of our club’s designated stretch of I-235! Fortunately we don’t have to go too far down the road –- we cover a stretch from 31st street to MLK. This project on one of the busiest stretches of roadway in the state is a great way to help the community and to have fun with your fellow Sertomans. You never know what you’ll find – we’ve seen everything from cash to meth lab remnants – what will you find? Find out May 1-- meet at the church parking lot on 31st just north of I-235 at 7:45 a.m. If you haven’t done so already, contact Craig Randall to let him know that you are going to help out.

201005dms.JPGOur May 18 lunch meeting hits one of Sertoma’s key service areas –- hearing and speech – when we host Kathryn Baumann-Reese, Administrator with the Deaf Services Commission of Iowa. We’ll see how this agency is meeting the needs of Iowa’s deaf and hard of hearing in this age of tight budgets.

We mix fun and service on May 25 at our annual benefit Pitch Tournament for the Ruby Van Meter School Booster Club. Every penny raised in this fun tournament goes to make possible the outside activities of the kids at the area’s school for special-needs kids. If you can be there, play. You don’t have to know how to play Pitch; our own Jack Sink will patiently reach you all you need to know! If you can’t be there, sponsor a player and help us raise $500 for the RVM kids – a bargain at $15 -- and every penny goes to the RVM Booster Club.

Service to Mankind is what Sertoma is about -- and great speakers and fun, too. Join the fun!
