June 5th is our annual golf event at HiMark golf course.  We need club member to help us with golf balls.  This year we are providing each golfer with a Gateway Sertoma/Tabitha logoed golf balls.  We are asking each member to contribute $22.50 to help offset this expense.

We also need help securing golf teams and sponsors.  Anyone interested can go to this page, Gateway Sertoma Golf Event Registration.

Ron McNulty took a poll from the group to see who might be interested in a day bus trip to a KC Royals game.  He thought the price might be $80 per person.  He will discuss with some others to see if anyone’s interested.

We are in need of some new faces at our meetings.  It’s time to start thinking about who might be good prospects to become a Gateway Sertoma Member.  Invite them to breakfast and have them try it out.

Do you have hearing aids?  Hearing Aid Bank is accepting used hearing aids to be refurbished.  Bring them in to our weekly meeting and they’ll be taken to the Barkley Center.
