Stone awarded Kiwanis' Legion of Honor

-A +A
Allan Stone, a 40-year member of Kiwanis, was presented the Legion of Honor Award at the Rocklin club’s weekly luncheon meeting. The award is given to people who have been a Kiwanis member for at least 25 years. Stone was recognized for his years of service to the club — always doing more than his share of service projects and serving in leadership roles at different clubs. Stone has been a club president for the three Kiwanis clubs he has joined: Inglewood, Glendale and now in Rocklin. He also served as secretary for two of those clubs. While in Glendale, Stone served as lieutenant governor for Div. 3. After retiring as chief of the Glendale Fire Department in 1998, Stone moved to Rocklin with wife, Marie. He joined the Rocklin club and resumed his volunteer work. He has served on the board of directors, has edited the club’s weekly bulletin and volunteered for the various service projects. Stone has been named the club’s Member of the Year an unprecedented five times. He also claims perfect attendance at Kiwanis meetings throughout his 40 years as a member. In addition to his Kiwanis activities, Stone is an active member of the Rocklin Historical Society. He has been playing tennis since 1976 and plays doubles at Sierra View County Club a couple of times a week if his aching back will allow it. ~ Staff Report
