Hello District 1 Family,

What a wonderful Spring Conference last Saturday! More than 250 Toastmasters turned out to enjoy friendship, food, contests, elections and more.

You’ll want to know election results and contest winners, so I’ll get right to it.

Warmest congratulations to your newly-elected 2015-2016 officers!

    District Director: Joyce Howard, DTM
    Program Quality Director: Jessica Allen, DTM
    Club Growth Director: Julie Broady, DTM

Cheers to the Tall Tales contest winners!

Accolades to the International Speech contest winners!

    First place: Patrick Hammond
    Second place: Giovanna Dottore
    Third place: Suraj Chugani
    (Patrick will represent District One at the International Convention in August.)

The first-ever Lydia Boyd Award went to Julie Broady, DTM, for her exemplary work for District One.

It was a fine day for the whole District One Family! We tried out our elevator speeches, heard a dynamic keynote, hugged our newest DTMs, and listened to young people who have benefited from the Youth Leadership Program. We remembered our Toastmasters family members who have passed on, bought raffle tickets and Toastmasters manuals, ate a delicious buffet breakfast and lunch, and watched a hilarious “closing credits” video. Great job, Spring Conference team!

As my term as District Governor draws to a close, I want to thank my 2014-2015 team, their teams, and the whole District One family. If you served your club, earned an award, mentored a member or helped at any event, YOU contributed to District One’s success. Thank you!
