Our good friend Steve Brock, City Manager of Farmington Hills was our guest speaker today. Starting with potholes and who and how they are handled led to updating us with who is responsible for certain streets and roads in the community. While is would seem obvious, it really isn't because different roads are funded by different agencies. For instance, some thoroughfares are handled by the county, some by the state and some by the City. In brief, if you haven't noticed the sprouting spring flowers, called orange barrels, you will see them soon on Farmington Road and also on 10 Mile Road. You can find additional information at DPW in Farmington Hills.

Our meeting today was centered around the DIA. Syretta Lee, brought an informative presentation to us and I'm sure convinced a few that we should be more involved with the DIA programs. Interested guests joined us today, being Beverly Ellis and Nancy Coumadorous, both being interested in the DIA programs. Of particular note, there is a program currently being offered wherein groups of individuals can coordinate a date and the DIA will provide transportation to and from and host the group for guided tours and refreshments. The day would usually be from about 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Stand by for more information to follow up on this one.
The DIA also provides for copies of artworks that are part of the DIA to be displayed throughout the city(ies) to bring art awareness close to home. Nancy indicated that Farmington Hills is in planning for a date in 2015, so watch for the Art. It may be coming to a neighbohood near you.

Our April 1 meeting program kind of wrapped up the literacy month on the Rotary Calendar for March. Our club project of support for the GED Prep at St Vincent Sarah Fisher was to provide material support to the program consisting of Microsoft Operating Systems for a installment of a number of computers for test taking to qualify for the GED Certificate.
Nancy Skula represented SVSF at the meeting to receive the software, which was given to her at the meeting. The purchase of the software was made possible by utilizing a District Grant from our District 6380 grant funds. Many thanks to our District and to our generous members for the support of the program.

The Queen of Hearts Raffle came to a close for this license year tonight. It took about ten additional draws to locate the Queen, she was so well hidden. Michael Rambus was the winner by finding the Queen of Hearts. We would like to thank all of the people who purchased tickets this year. The proceeds will be appreciated by the organizations and projects that we support. Special thanks to the staff and people at Botsford Hospital who were an important assist in selling tickets. And, thank you to the Rotarians who "manned the raffle" every week at Cowley's for the year. Thank you to Cowley's and staff for graciously hosting the raffle every Thursday night for the year. We hope you wll will support and assist us when we begin the raffle again, later this year.
