Topic: The Rotary Club of Toronto $100k Centennial Polio Donation - How Did it Make a Difference?
Born in England, Stella graduated from St Thomas' Hospital in physiotherapy in 1978, moved to Penticton, BC in 1980 to do a locum and to learn to ski.  
She moved to Nova Scotia in 1985 to upgrade to a degree and sail her laser. Stella began her Rotary journey with the Bedford Sackville and District Rotary Club in 1994 and could not imagine the impact that Rotary would have on her life.  
Her club now is The Rotary Club of Halifax Harbourside, and she served as Club President in 1996-97.  
Stella served as District Governor for D7820 in 2014-2015, which covers Nova Scotia, Newfoundland & Labrador, Prince Edward Island and St Pierre et Miquelon (French Overseas Territory).  
She loved learning that each community and club are unique and all the different ways that Rotarians are working in their communities, especially up in the north of Labrador and the small communities in rural Nova Scotia.
