We created The Spirit of Mary Toland Award this year to acknowledge an IPDGA member for something they have done that has made a pleasant difference for someone. Someone who was just generous in spirit to you who made your day go a little better. Someone who has the spirit of Mary- funny, generous, friendly, helpful and chatty. We had lots of wonderful nominations for the award and we forwarded them on to Mary's family Pat, Rebecca, Sarah and Nicola to choose who they think deserved the award.
We are privileged to have had Mary Toland in our lives and also a lady like Jenny Hale to help fill that huge void that Mary left behind. We will never forget you Mary.
