January 2011: the start of a great year to be a Sertoman!

Of course, every year is a great year to be part of Sertoma! The Des Moines Club looks forward to again promoting hearing health and our local mission at the Ruby Van Meter School for special-needs kids. Of course, we also have great times and great speakers at our regular lunch meetings, and January 2011 will be no exception.

We will meet in the "Board Room" of the Des Moines Club on the 33rd floor of Ruan Center (7th and Grand) in January.

Our first meeting in 2011 is January 4, when the club welcomes an advocate for our hearing and speech service mission: Martha Meyer of the Central Iowa Chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of America. The HLAA describes its mission as " to open the world of communication to people with hearing loss by providing information, education, support and advocacy."

201101dms1Ron Sorensen, director of low-power radio station KFMG-LP, visits us on January 18. Ron owned KFMG/KDMG, a full-power station at 103.3 FM. Years after selling that station he re-entered the radio game with the first low-power entry in the Des Moines market. With fresh legislation to encourage low-power stations just enacted, this will be an interesting and timely session.

201101dms-2Our January evening outing takes us to Knapp Center January 25 to see the Drake Bulldogs Men's Basketball team square off against Missouri State. Tip-off is at 7:05. Club members should let Joe Kristan know if they need tickets.

Great speakers, great outings, and service to the community -- don't miss another day of it. Join Sertoma!
