You talk funny 3

In the above photo, a young man with Cerebral Palsy shows off his walking skills to Bob and Cheryl Buckley. Bob is Council Chairman for Lions District 201, which is all of Australia and Papua. Several children with this disability walked right around the conference. And I came across the following....
Dear Council Chairman Lion Nick Herrold,
Congratulations! The New Zealand Hart Walker Project has been selected as one of three finalists for the International Hero Award in the category of District Service Project. The International Hero Awards were created to recognise the Everyday Heroes who have made a difference in the world by performing miracles through service.
You are invited to join us at the International Hero Awards Banquet on Thursday, July 9th, in the Minneapolis Convention Center Ballroom in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, during the 2009 Lions Club International Convention. At the banquet, all finalists will be recognised and the winner will be announced.
Once again, congratulations on this outstanding achievement!
Kristopher Kempski
Communications Coordinator,
Lions Clubs International.
Well, Nick, it is an awful job, but someone has to do it. I hope you take Alyssa McCarty and her family, and the organiser of the project in New Zealand, Genny Hanning. These are the real Heroes.
