Barnstorming into Spring with Des Moines Sertoma!

The weather is finally warming up, but things are always bubbling at the Des Moines Sertoma Club! We this month’s schedule with an April 5 visit from Mary Brubaker. A long-time KCCI-TV personality, Mary is involved in community activities from the Arts to Alzheimer’s Disease. This will be a great presentation, and you don’t want to miss it!

We next get together April 19 to hear from John Gregory, the Iowa Barnstormers Head Coach, who had to reschedule his visit scheduled for March. Coach Gregory will get us fired up for…

… our April 30 evening outing, when we go to Wells Fargo Arena to see our Arena Football Team play the Philadelphia Soul. AFL games are great fun and wonderful spectacle. You need to reserve your tickets for this Sertoma outing, so contact Joe Kristan to let him know you want to go.

Club News

Our spring Highway Cleanup is set for May 7, so mark it on your calendar to help keep the freeway beautiful.

Bob Simons
has started work to get ready for our State Fair Hearing and Speech Education Booth. This is a lot of work – help Bob get the word out about hearing safety by joining his planning group.

The club is considering a spring garage sale to raise funds for some of our charitable work. Let Craig Randall, Jeri Le Henry, or Joe Kristan know if you can help with goods or a place to hold the sale.

Campership! The club has been asked to contribute a $500 campership to help a needy hard-of-hearing child attend Camp Sertoma. An anonymous member will match up to $250 of Des Moines Sertoma contributions. Please give at one of the April meetings, or mail a donation to Club Treasurer Ron Mountsier at the same address you use to pay your Sertoma membership bill.

Bonus Tickets! The club has a voucher for four tickets available for the first Iowa Energy playoff game April 11 as a “thank you” from the team for our recent outing. First come, first serve. See Joe Kristan if you are interested.
