Tom Seaver as the new Director of the Colorado Lottery.   Tom Seaver brings more than 30 years of lottery industry experience as a leader, high-level manager and consultant with state and international lotteries and to lottery vendors, including the Virginia and Missouri lotteries. Seaver is from Carthage, Ill. and is moving to Pueblo where he will be based at Colorado Lottery headquarters beginning June 25, 2018. 

The Commission is composed of five members who are appointed by the Governor with the consent and approval of the Colorado Senate. At least one member of the Commission must have been a law enforcement officer for at least five years; one member must have been a Colorado practicing attorney for at least five years; and at least one member must be a certified public accountant who practiced accountancy in Colorado for at least five years.

The Colorado Lottery Commission plays an important role in the oversight and governance of the Colorado Lottery and in fulfilling their fiduciary duties with regards to all Lottery games operated by the Lottery. Its mission is to ensure that all games marketed by the Colorado Lottery are done with security and protection of the integrity of the games and organization of the Colorado Lottery; and, to ensure that all Colorado Lottery games are representative of the values of the State of Colorado and its citizens.

KidSight at Project HOPE - need help
We have partnered with Colorado Academy Project H.O.P.E. to do KidSight Screening at this event.  This is a huge event and we expect to screen at least 400 kids.  We are planning to use 4-6 PlusOptix to keep up with screening these many kids.  We will need help in screening and managing the flow of kids and parents.   Spanish speakers would be helpful.  They are expecting 2000 people with over half being kids. Below is an event description.   
 
Founded in the mid-90s by students from the Class of 1996, Students H.O.P.E. (Helping Other People Eat) has evolved into the largest service learning project on the CA campus – and a major event for faculty, parent volunteers, and school staff as well. The first event served approximately 200 people in a downtown Denver homeless shelter. Today, this Upper School student-run event provides gently used clothing, toiletry and baby care items, new holiday toys, basic medical care including flu shots, and a holiday meal to a growing population – 1800 attendees in 2016 – each December on our campus. Many disadvantaged families are bused by CA from downtown shelters and agencies.

Service Tuesday Dec 4 at Savio

On Tuesday, December 4  will have our Service Tuesday.   This is an opportunity for Lions to do a service project and have lunch and fellowship with other Lions and guests.  It will be a hands-on project.   See below for location.

This service project will be assembling kids backpacks with medical supplies to go to kids in countries and communities in need.  The backpack has basic "medicine cabinet" items that are scarce in the developing world. If a child gets hurt, families might have to travel a long distance by bicycle, bus or even on foot to receive care at the nearest hospital or medical clinic.  

We are partnering with Project Cure for the backpacks.

Date:  Tuesday, December 4

Time: Noon to 1:30 pm

Location:  Savio at 1530 W 13th Ave, Denver, CO 60608 in Multi-Purpose Room.
