“One Can Make a Difference” – President’s Rose – Tom Spence

Tom was introduced into our club by the late Past President Hap Nicholds in 1976, and is a 30-year member of our Legion of Honour. Tom was Chair of the Interclub, Sports and Social Committee in 1977-78. One of Tom’s “claims to fame” is that he personally arranged 120 Interclubs that year. Because of our club’s association with Tom, his employer, Surgenor Pontiac Buick, has supported our club for almost 40 years – first by providing a one-year car lease for our Tv Auction, and, after the TV Auction was discontinued, they agreed to provide the car lease, for our Bon Appetit Silent Auction. This brings in approximately $12,000 for our club every year. Tom has spent 53 years in Service at Surgenor Pontiac Buick, and most of us would retire at this point, but this year instead of retiring, he has agreed to stay on in the Sales Department at Surgenors. He is the first person you see at our Friday luncheons, and we thank him for his reliability and his steadfastness. He is one of our many past presidents who continue to support our projects with as much dedication as he did when he joined 32 years ago. Tom’s invaluable dedication to our Club shows how “One can make a difference”.
