State Fair Roundup, 2010

Over 600 hearing screenings. 12,000 ear plugs given away. Thousands of pieces of hearing safety literature distributed.

And countless calories!

Iowa's Sertoma Clubs made their mark on the 2010 Iowa State Fair with their hearing education booth in the Varied Industries building. Along with dozens of volunteer audiologists, Iowa's Sertomans spread the word about hearing safety in the era of the Ipod. This year, using our brand-new audiometer, the club provided a record number of hearing screenings to fairgoers.

Thanks to all Iowa Sertomans who contributed time (466 hours!) and money to this important opportunity to reach Iowans with the hearing safety message. Thanks also to Des Moines Sertoman Bob Simons for his exceptional effort to make this happen.

September 2010: Kicking off another season of Service!

The summer heat may be gone, but things are still cooking at the Des Moines Sertoma Club!

We start our September Schedule on September 7 with Chris Creighton, the Drake Bulldogs football coach. Starting his second Drake season, we'll find out what we can expect from the 2010 squad.

The club will learn more about one of the more controversial election campaigns of the 2010 season when John Shors, former head of the Iowa Bar Association, visits on September 21 to discuss the vote on the retention of three judges on the Iowa Supreme Court. This is another example of the excellent opportunities Sertoma membership affords. In recent months we've had the Mayor of Des Moines and a member of the County Board visit. Our small lunch setting gives us a chance to really get to know our community leaders.

The date and location for the September evening meeting is pending.
