August 7 2014: President’s Report

You can’t wind back the clock, but if if we could, you would want to have been at the Voyagers Toastmasters meeting Thursday.

Beth Bateman brought us “Shark Week” as the theme and we had a special guest Antwon Lincoln.
Our last speech of the day was delivered by Antwon Lincoln.  Antwon is the winner of the District 5 speech contest and as a result is headed to Kuala Lumpur to compete in the International Speech Contest.  Antwon’s speech was called “Mama Style”.  The speech was fantastic with Antwon captivating the audience.
At the recent training, our club was recognized for our long string of consecutive Distinguished Club awards.  Mark Epstein and Mark Imhoff were also recognized for their service to Toastmasters as Area Governors.   Beth Bateman, our Area 12 Governor, presented the awards.
Don’t miss next week with Toastmaster Amy Gilstrap.  She will explore words that are new to the English lexicon like Google and other words that are relatively new to our language.
