February 2011: lots of Sertoma in a short month!

While February is the shortest month, the days are getting longer and, one hopes, a bit warmer. Come to the Des Moines Sertoma Club to warm up with a great slate of February lunch speakers.

We start on February 1 with a visit from Paula Vincent, Chief Administrator of the Heartland Area Education Agency. Dr. Vincent heads Iowa's largest AEA, which covers Audubon, Boone, Carroll, Dallas, Guthrie, Jasper, Madison, Marion, Polk, Story and Warren counties. This is a time of great ferment in the state educational system, and this promises to be a great session.

We move on to another matter entirely on February 15 when we hear from Brooks Reynolds, co-founder of the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival. Brooks is the son of our 2010 Service to Mankind award winners, Stan Reynolds and Jody Reynolds, and he works as an account executive at Reynolds and Reynolds when he isn't promoting the most wonderful food known to humankind.

Our February Evening Meeting will be a night out at the Des Moines Buccaneers hockey game Tuesday, February 22. We hosted Scott Montesano, the teams announcer and Director of Corporate Sales, back in October. We’ll have a great time watching these remarkable young men play the Waterloo Black Hawks at Buccaneer Arena on Hickman road in Urbandale.
