Dit Register: Double, Vo., Tues., Dec. 21, 1965 3-i ·if ~s Making the cover of a maga- zine isn't the exclusive privilege of celebrities and photograph- ers' models. Members of the Westover Sertoma Club learned recently hat they can claim to be "cover boys." A year ago, the Sertomans were engaged feverishly in put- lag the finishing touches on a ionic they rebuilt for a couple whose house and belongings lad been destroyed in a fire. "The Sertoman," a magazine published for and distributed by Sertorna International to its members throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico, recognized that this was a pro- ject worthy of more than cursory attention. But the magazine staff de- cidad not to publish it right away, but to wait until Christ- mas rolled around again and make it the feature article of their yule edition. T h e Westover Sertomans' eyes popped out when they found their project emblazoned over the cover of the December- January 1965-66 issue of the magazine. The cover is done in red and includes three photographs given a picture, blue tone, labeled "A The first Disaster" shows the home of Mr. and Mrs. Howard Pyron in rubble. Next conies a pic- ture, captioned "Sertomans at Work . . .," showing the club members completing the job on the roof, landscaping and bring- ing in the furniture. Finally, with the line, "And a Merry Christmas!," Mr. and Mrs. Pyron are shown receiv- ing the keys to the home from Santa Glaus while the broadly is repeated in a closeup shot. At the end of the story is an editor's note: "The Westover Club smiling Sertomans look on. Ciub earned Award the for Gold Honor 1964-65 and Inside, "The Sertoman," de- votes half a page to the story of how the Westover club made Christmas 1964 a joyous occa- sion for the couple. The picture of Santa (Sertoman Lawrence Woodson) presenting the keys President E. Jack Nowling was presented t h e Distinguished Club President's Award." Needless to say, the house- building project was one of the major factors in the club get- ting the international honors. C. E.
