This Week's Speaker is Steve Burger. His topic is "Experiencing Polio: A Personal Voyage."
**We will be back on ZOOM this week, and NOT in-person at the Gallery**
In 1952, 60,000 children suffered with Polio, but to Steve Burger’s family it became personal when his brother was diagnosed with Polio. Steve will share the impact of polio on his family and community. It didn’t end there. Steve will share his experience with Polio and those affected, his commitment through Rotary and his experiences in India, and Africa. Polio today again affects his immediate family. Steve believes Polio still affects us as well as the world. 
 
Steve Burge is now a 48 year member of Rotary and has served on the board of the Seattle Rotary Club and the Kansas City #13 Club. He has chaired the Program Committee for our club since 2002. He is retired after over 50 years in rescue mission ministry. He came to Kansas City from Seattle, WA as Executive Director of Association of Gospel Rescue Missions with 300+ missions in the United States and Canada. He served as a board member and past chairman of the City Mission World Association, and a number of national and regional boards. Steve is a native of St. Paul, MN, and was educated at Hamline University and Bethel University, both in St. Paul. He and his wife Delores have been married for 58 years, and have 2 children, 4 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. Steve’s son Eric is a member of our club and is the Executive Director of Shelter KC, a Kansas City Rescue Mission.

A Note about the Hybrid Meeting Format
by David Hanzlick
 
Thank you to everyone who joined the meeting last week whether on Zoom or in-person. The goal is to ensure a quality meeting experience regardless of the format you choose. 
 
For future meetings, we will use the timeline that has been used for the Zoom meetings. The meeting will be called to order at noon and then we’ll go into breakouts. 
 
Several members on Zoom reported that the quality of the audio needs improvement. We are working in that direction. Thanks to everyone for being flexible as we fine tune the hybrid format.
