What My Club Did Last Summer

on . Posted in Latest D21 News

Share your Summer 2015 creative Summer Club Meeting Adventures with the rest of the District! 

When clubs get together during the Summer, they have greater success all year round. Instead of "taking a break" most of our clubs in District 21 get a little creative with their Summer meetings. We'd like to encourage all clubs to give Summer meetings a try and to make them fun and inventive in 2016.

We will post the best of the best ideas on our shiny new website when it is created!

The top 3 clubs that do the most fun and inventive Summer meeting/get-together will receive "Breaking the Ice Since 1924" Toastmasters 90th Anniversary window decals for your entire team based on your membership level at August 31st (See photo of swanky decal below).

Team members already have these classy pieces of SWAG? They make lovely awards, gifts, incentives for joining your team ... the possibilities are endless ...

Send your "What My Club Did Last Summer" short article (photos or videos will make it even better) to Carol Carter, your PQD, before September 15th. 90AnniversaryDecal

"The simple fact is that we grow, or learn, or work better, when we enjoy what we are doing ..."

~ Ralph Smedley, founder of Toastmasters International

In the meantime, we ask for your patience as we have our webmaster focus his energy on creating a new spiffy website rather than updating this one. Note: We will update the most important and relevant contact information.
