SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:  Pat McKim

Pat was born in York, Pennsylvania in 1968. In 1970 his parents migrated to Denver, Colorado where Pat remains to this day. He attended Littleton public schools and graduated from Heritage High. It was at Heritage that he met the children of Rick (?) and Sam Anderson, both members of the Arapahoe Sertoma Club.

He graduated from CU Denver in 1991 and started his professional career as a Certified Financial Planner in 1992. Rick and Sam eventually got him to join the Arapahoe Sertoma Club in 1995. Pat served as President of the club for the 1999-2000 fiscal year.

Pat was asked if he would like assist our new president, Bob Hogge in putting on a lingerie show, and which nursing home he would use as a source for his models. Unfortunately, he already has some women from Bingo lined up.

PROGRAM:   Program Director Barney O'Grady; Barney arranged for Special Agent Jim Hampton of the US Fish and Wildlife Service to speak for us.

Jim is the son of a Vietnam veteran and a graduate of Florida State University. He now serves as a special agent for the US Fish and Wildlife Service. He job is to find and arrest those who are involved in the illegal interstate or international transport of protected wildlife and wildlife parts. For example, he would not be involved in the investigation of a poached elk in Colorado, but he would investigate a person that poached in Wyoming and then brought that animal to Colorado.

As part of a team of only three agents that cover the entire state of Colorado he is focused more on traffickers then on individuals. However, he made it clear that no case is too small. He also asked that if you are in possession of items of questionable origin then please be responsible and donate it or turn it in.   james_hampton "at" fws.gov
