Dear Friends in Toastmasters, Welcome to the new term.
We should be thankful we belong to TOASTMASTERS and our past leaders have worked very hard to grow TOASTMASTERS in District 51, to what it is today.
Your current leaders are committed to work hard and grow this beautiful organization, so that we will be able to touch many more lives.
