Happy New Year!

It is the beginning of a new Toastmaster year; thank you for trusting me to continue the leadership of our club. We will be celebrating our own birthday in a few weeks as well!

A little about me: I am a brain tumor and breast cancer survivor, I began Toastmasters in April 2017 and will be completing the highest award Distinguished Toastmaster this December. I have held nearly every officer position (except Treasurer and Vice President of Public Relations), and have just completed a year as an Area Director for District 38.

I am a chartering member of Competitive Communicators; I have been involved nearly from the start with our founder: Paul Finkelstein. I love Toastmasters because it has given me confidence that I never knew I had.

I hope to continue to build our club and keep our friendly atmosphere, I plan to have workshops and trainings to build your skills to give you more confidence in your lives as well.

Thank you,

Tricia Grow

Our first International Club Level Speech contest modeled after Districted speech contest rule book 2017 to 2018….


Hi CC Gang!!!

Congratulations for another FANTASTIC MEETING AND CONTEST!!!

Here is the replay from tonite’s meeting:

I have heard so many great comments from members who made it to the meeting today!
First, I am  so sorry to hear the Daylight savings time news didn’t make it all the way to some of our Hong Kong members and Malaysia members.
Especially, I missed hearing 2 contestants.

Arranging a lot of the contest functionaries over this past week and up to the very minute, can take enormous effort and coordination.  Toastmasters trains us to be a better version of ourselves and to be the best leaders.
