President’s Distinguished 8 Consecutive Years
Mission: To Inspire, Inform and Serve all Members
February 4, 2009
A Note from the President:
I enjoyed the Toastmasters Leadership Institute training last weekend. It was great to see so many involved and passionate Toastmaster’s in one place. There was standing room only in many of the rooms! As I listened to the discussions during the President’s training, I was reminded once again what an amazing group of individuals you all are and how thankful I am to be part of such an involved and active club. We have none of the pettiness I heard discussed by other clubs and I mean NONE! It has been a pleasure to work with all of you and to hear the great speeches and evaluations each week! You are all such a blessing!!
