A Warm Welcome!

TM Glen honors President Ksenija
Open House
It was great seeing many Igniters at our Open House on Feb. 11. A warm welcome to our guests. We had a fun evening of food, fellowship, and sharing the benefits of Toastmasters. It has been great having one of our guests continue to attend our meetings.

Recognition of Members
There are opportunities in the club to be recognized for your achievements. Educational awards and standing ovations are given to recognize milestones in the club. Each person can choose their own goals in the self paced program. We have many members this year who are going after their goals every week. 

Every week, a member who thinks on their feet and gives the best mini speech is awarded a Table Topics Trophy they can cherish for a short time before they have to return it! Also, the Igniting Spirits Award is given to a member who has stretched, inspired, or taken on a new challenge that week. 

Congratulations Druh! Table Topics Trophy
Helping Youth in our Community
The Public Library and Toastmasters has teamed up for many years to provide Youth Leadership  Programs to help our Youth learn and practice speaking and leadership skills in a six week course.Yvonne has been helping at several Youth Leadership programs. A number of our members have been involved in these worthwhile programs.

Yvonne invited Druh and his father to attend one of our meetings. It was inspiring to talk to Druh and see the confidence he has gained from giving speeches and taking on leadership roles at the meetings. He took on the challenge of answering a question with poise, clear points, and 

On Sunday March 1 at the Central Library, various youth including Druh will be competing in a Super Speech contest. Come out and see the hope for our future!
