Paul Harris Fellow

PPASS BC President Joan Toone Receives the Prestigious Paul Harris Fellow award from Rotary International District 5020.

Our president, Joan Toone, together with fellow polio survivor and Rotary member, Denny Wilford, from Port Orchard WA, were each presented with a Paul Harris Fellow award by Rotary District 5020 Governor Norm Watts at the 2008 District Conference, held in Parksville BC on May 31st.

President's Commendation

Joan Toone was very surprised when she visited the Rotary Club of Victoria on Monday. Past President Rick Stolle stood up and began talking about her work in the field of Polio. The club had asked Terry to sign a paper without telling him what was being done so it was a wonderful surprise for both of them.

Joan was presented with the President's Commendation. She was so honored by it all but remarked it also belongs to PPASS as it is because of PPASS and it's members that her - and Terry - are encouraged to spread the word about polio and post polio.
