The regular meeting of the Richmond Kiwanis Club was held Aug. 9 at The 19th Hole restaurant. The guest speaker for the day was Marlin L. Ritzman, supervisory special agent from the FBI who has an office in Kansas City.
He spoke of his career, saying that an agent must be 37 years of age but has to retire at the age of 57. If one passes the rigorous testing, background checks, polygraph test and a panel of examiners, the applicant is then admitted to the FBI Academy in Quantico, Va. for a period of 15 to 17 weeks.
It was a very interesting program, after which he opened the floor to questions. During the business meeting, Jerry McCarter announced that he brought back a case of 20 Kiwanis cookbooks from the district meeting. They are available from Jerry at the reduced price of $10 and the money raised will be used for the Earl Collins scholarship fund.
