The Burnsville Breakfast Rotary Club had a very busy day at their bi-monthly meeting today with the induction of a new member and an interesting presentation from Experience Burnsville. First of all, we inducted our newest member Steve Smela who's the owner of the local Senior Helpers Franchise in Burnsville. Steve has had many interesting educational and job experiences throughout his life that has prepared him to open and operate his own business. His company offers customized in-home care plans to meet the unique needs of the elderly and allow them to stay in their own homes.

     We also had Amie Burrell who's the Executive Director of Experience Burnsville as our guest speaker. Amie walked us through the history of Experience Burnsville and what her organization does which is to help make Burnsville a destination for visitors within a 125-mile circumference of the area. The goal of the organization is to help the community by increasing the volume & spending of visitors through promotion, marketing, and advertising with Burnsville's unique gateway to Minneapolis & St. Paul with easy access to 35E & 35W. The organization is funded by a 3% lodging tax that is collected by the nine lodging properties that reside in Burnsville.
