The Montpelier Ruritan Club presented the Tom Downing Award to Mr. Walter “Ralph” Harris during its Ladies Night Christmas Party. The Tom Downing Award is the highest award that Ruritan members can bestow to one of their own. Ralph has been an inspiration to us all. Though he has failing health, we know that Ralph will be present
when the club has a meeting or special activities. He is the epitome in exemplifying loyalty, dedication, determination and yes, dependability.
Thank you, Ralph, for being an example that we should all aspire to become.
