"What a great story! We enjoyed so much meeting Tony Steele and learning about his life. Uplifting and motivating! Every club should look at this as a great opportunity for a speaker! Thank you again Paula for bringing Tony to the Lakeland South Rotary and for sharing what keeps us all young! Passion for what we love!!" - Donna Pearce, Member Lakeland South Rotary, Florida
"Tony Steele and Paula Blackwelder presented a wonderful program to the members of the Northeast Polk County Historical Society, Inc. Program included a video of Steele's legendary exploits as a trapeze artist and a personal interview telling about his colorful life. We also enjoyed hearing about our own Haines City gal, Paula Blackwelder's career as a trapeze artist. Several members purchased the book, FROM GAZOONIE TO GREATNESS, about Tony's inspirational life and written by Paula," - Nell Johnson, Treasurer.
