This Week's Meeting
This Week's Meeting
March 30,2017
Our Speaker this week is Rev. Stephen Burger, Nephew of Chief Justice Warren Burger. His topic will be: "Supreme Court Reflections: On the Back Porch with Chief Justice Warren Burger."

Our Speaker this week is Steve Burger. Rotarian Steve Burger was 12 when his uncle Warren Burger left St. Paul to go to Washington in 1952 to become Assistant Attorney General of the United States.  Steve’s dad managed Warren’s properties in St. Paul so for many years he was a frequent visitor in the Burger home.  When he was named Chief Justice, Steve lived 90 miles away, so visiting was not difficult. Upon retirement Warren Burger served as Chair of the Bi-Centennial Commission for the Celebration of the Constitution and asked Steve to advise, relating to getting the message to common people. 


Steve served over 50 years in rescue mission ministry with the last 18 as Executive Director of the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions headquartered in Kansas City, MO.  During this period he spent many days in Washington, DC on behalf of the 300 member gospel rescue missions in the United States.  So visiting his uncle during that time gave him the opportunity to gain insight, knowledge, facts and foibles.  Steve will share reflections, which many relate to the court today.  Steve is a 45 year Rotarian, and Chair of our club's Program Committee.

Bowling News
Next Wednesday is the end of the bowling season. On the following Wednesday, April 5th there will be a championship match to determine the first and second place teams. 
All league play bowlers who are going to Columbia must let Susan Prestia know on Wednesday March 29th. We need to send your name and averages to the bowling establishment in Columbia so they can divide us up into handicap teams for the match against St. Louis.
Mike VanBooven did it again this week. He rolled another high game of 206.  His third of the year. Not bad for using a bright green alley ball.  Of course, he throws it down the lane like a rocket. The pins don't have a chance. He should go high in next years draft.
John Lawrence rolled a 203 and 210. Nest Wednesday is his last chance to beat Dave Boones "high game" of 247. There were many splits covered last
week. They were all the same one. Mary Tikwart picked up the 5-7 twice. Cindy Heckman and Henrik Andersen also cover the 5-7. Congratulations all.
