It’s been a while since I’ve put pen to paper so to speak (finger to keyboard?).

Our August meeting was just lovely.  There was an excellent turnout, and a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. We were visited by our very important Area Governor 😉  Just stirring Roseann, but we do appreciate all the work that she does and all the time she spends driving to and from Malanda for our meetings. It was wonderful to see our new executive members stepping up, and doing it so well. I’d like to especially commend John, the new president of our club who seemed quite comfortable in the role despite only joining Toastmasters this year, and our well organised VPE Ellen.  I wish the other executive members all the best.

President – John

Secretary – Leanne

Vice president of education – Ellen

Vice president of public relations – Lorraine

Vice president of Membership – Lorraine

Seargent at arms – Patrick

Treasurer – Neil

and your slack webmaster here who promises to do a better job this year.

We also grew by 2 new members in August, and we warmly welcome Scott and Rachel to the club.  We look forward to hearing Rachel give her first speech next meeting, which is tonight. I can’t believe how long this post has been in draft mode.

It’s looking like an exciting year ahead – the Toastmasters year runs from July to June.

I will endeavor to keep you all posted.
