[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E2511] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] HONORING THE DOWNTOWN FORT SMITH SERTOMA CLUB'S 50TH ANNIVERSARY ______ HON. JOHN BOOZMAN of arkansas in the house of representatives Monday, December 8, 2003 Mr. BOOZMAN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the Downtown Fort Smith Sertoma Club for their fifty years of service to the community of Fort Smith, Arkansas. The Downtown Fort Smith Sertoma Club exists for the high and noble purpose of service to mankind by communications of thoughts, ideas and concepts to accelerate human progress in health, education, freedom and democracy. The club, which is part of the international charity the Sertoma Foundation, provides a number of services to the community. Most notably, they aid the hearing-impaired acquire hearing related products for persons who otherwise could not afford them. I appreciate what they have done for the people of Fort Smith. They truly are an example of what can be accomplished if we make sacrifices for the greater good of our communities. Mr. Speaker, 50 years of dedicated service and support to local charitable organizations and the educational good of mankind is truly a glorious reason to celebrate. I ask my colleagues to join me today as we honor this wonderful organization and encourage them to continue their work on behalf of the community. ____________________
