She is active in her club’s numerous community and club service projects.

While helping a student apply for an Ambassadorial Scholarship Joanne became familiar with the many aspects of the Rotary Foundation. She was asked to serve on the District 7640 Scholarships subcommittee, and subsequently chaired that committee from 2004-2013. From 2013 to 2016 she served as the District 7640 Rotary International Foundation Committee Chair. As a result of her work she received the District 7640 Service Above Self Award for the Rotary year 2015-16. Joanne is passionate about the Rotary Foundation, supporting its efforts to assist communities around the world, our local communities and to eradicate polio. She and her husband Steve Neuner are Foundation Major Donors.

Joanne is an active participant in the Transition Committees formed to insure the success of the merger of Districts 7640 and 7500, and co-chaired the bylaws revision committee. She is very enthusiastic about the opportunities presented for combined District7505 to broaden its scope.
