District News #5

Dear Fellow Toastmasters!
The spring has come and with the spring there comes new energy and new opportunities. Have you thought to step up as a club leader? Or maybe you have always wanted to help organize a conference? Or to mentor a new member? In Toastmasters there’s always a good time to start something new so that you can grow as a speaker and as a leader and use the skills in real life. I would like to wish you a wonderful time, with more daylight time and more sun every day. Enjoy your Toastmasters experience, share with friends and invite them to the meeting! Who knows, maybe you will be the one to bring the future World Champion of Public Speaking to our organization!
Happy Toastmastering!
