Dana Brewer, a member of the Concordia Rotary Club for 30 years, has a deep personal connection with the disease of poliomyelitis or “polio”.  Both of his parents were polio survivors.  Dana shares their combined life stories, as affected by polio, because he is passionate about the need to end the horrid disease’s chances to make people’s lives more difficult.  He is also keenly aware that an ever increasing number of Rotarians have no firsthand experience nor even know people who have experienced its worst paralyzing symptoms.
Lest we forget the underlying reasons for our quest to eliminate polio’s threat to humankind, Dana will be sharing the trials, tribulations and triumphs of his family’s fight against becoming victims of polio’s aftereffects.
Dana is a Past President of the Concordia Rotary Club and a two time Membership Chairperson for District 5670.  He served as Assistant or “Area” District Governor for the Beloit, Clay Center, Washington and Concordia Clubs in North Central Kansas for 2017-2018.
Dana graduated from Kansas State University in 1974.  He earned a Juris Doctor from the Washburn University School of Law in 1977.  Dana has practiced law in Concordia Kansas for over forty years and is now the owner of the Brewer Law Firm, LLC in Concordia.
Among other positions he has held, he is now General Counsel of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of North Central Kansas and CloudCorp (area economic development organization) and is a member of the Twelfth Judicial District Nominating Commission.  Dana is a past member of the Board of Governors of the Washburn University School of Law and currently serves on the Washburn Law School Foundation Board of Directors.
Dana has served in various capacities with the Community Foundation for Cloud County, the Cloud County Children’s Trust and the Johnson Granstedt Scholarship Fund.
