Dr. Songer Speaks to Rotary
August 13, 2013
By: Stephen Kent
Dr. David Songer
New member Dr. David Songer, owner and operator of the
Songer Chiropractic Clinic
, 4354 Wilder Rd.,
presented a "Ten Minute Rotarian" talk and told the club a little about his background, his daughter, and his home north of town.
David started in the Chicago area and said he had some challenges. He set his sights and goals and left "the ghetto" of Chicago to became a Chiropractor. Moving to Pinconning, he worked in an established clinic which he ended up owning in a short time. He move his practice to Bay City and has been her for 27 years.
Living in the AuSable State Forest, David described a simpler, rustic way of life that seemed to draw wishful looks from around the room. He said "I like to tinker and can fix or build about anything". David grows all his own food and lives in a natural setting.
He had a daughter a few years ago, and she was his guest at Rotary on Tuesday. He says that he is soon going to auction off his collections of "stuff" and relocate to Bay City, largely for her benefit.
When asked if he got cable where he lives, David said he doesn't even own a television. He also noted that he's come to appreciate Rotary as his social outlet.
