PROGRAM: Darcy Rivers told about his career as a border agent.
GUESTS: Darcy Rivers, speaker; Scott Phillips, Week One.
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
  • A warm welcome for Dennis Whitney returning after heart bypass surgery.
  • Peggi Bourke passed out a sign-up sheet for an important Dash or Crash meeting Monday at 5:30 at the Brighton Chamber of Commerce; pizza and beer.
  • Dennis Kalio is working on a brew pub club outing on either June 9 or 16.
  • Nancy Johnson says there is still a week left on the Rotary magazine contest. All a club member has to do is fill out a green sheet with the four pages that Michigan appears in a Rotary magazine. There are copies of the magazine on the table; people will help you with the answers. An anonymous donor is willing to donate 500 bucks if enough members participate, but so far the donor says the effort has only been worth 250. If as few as eight more sign up, we’ll get the full 500. This is the easiest money we’ll ever make.
  • Need a spring family picture? Nancy says a Livingston Promise fundraiser will provide a quality photo for only 99 dollars, a fraction of normal cost.
  • Julie Smith reminds us of the Livingston Job Fair Thursday from 3-7 at Crystal Gardens.
  • Mike Bourke gave a Dash or Crash update. Volunteers need to register; so far as many non-Rotarians as Rotarians. About 150 runners have registered, with very few of the sponsored runners registered. May 7 is cutoff day for t-shirts. Bob Murray donated 100 bucks to help fund runners; it will be used as a coupon code. Dash or Crash is May 20.
  • We got a nice thank you letter from Gleaners for the cow purchases.
  • Mike McManus thanked Cindy for providing a library staff person to talk about job searches for this week’s Sunset Club meeting.
  • There will be at least 7 members from Brighton club at Saturday’s District Assembly in Troy.
  • April 29 is Youth Exchange Appreciation Day at Oakland University.
  • Larry Pfeil says there is entertainment (Barry Manilow-type singer), auctions and good times Friday at Chaldean Camp. It’s a fundraiser for Habit for Humanity.
  • Karen Gill says the popular Bras for a Cause fundraiser is a week from Friday at Mt. Brighton.
  • Beth Walker chairs scholarship committee meeting after today’s meeting…17 applicants.
  • Bill Anderson is looking for volunteers for the March of Dimes walk at Kensington May 7.
  • Tom Coates reminds us that the Dash or Crash business cards are a great way to promote the event which, by the way, is May 20.
PROGRAM
Darcy Rivers has crossed the country from west to east and north to south in his career as a border patrol agent with the U.S. Custom and Border Protection. Currently based at the Selfridge Air Force Base (where he hopes to stay until he retires), Darcy’s career has taken him from San Diego to Washington, D.C. to Sault Ste. Marie and now to southeastern Michigan.
Basically there are three uniformed components of border agents. There is the Office of Air and Marines; the Office of Field Operations (which concentrates on border entry locations; and the Office of Border Patrol (which concentrates on the border between legal entry locations.)
