Three members took important steps in their Toastmasters journeys in May:
Dina Cardonne gave an outstanding Ice Breaker speech on May 19, telling us about her childhood in Cuba and how happy she is to be in America. It was so good, she not only won the Grammarian Award for the day but also took Best Speaker.
Kate McClare, CC, was recognized May 19 for reaching the Competent Communicator (CC) level with her tenth speech, about her late mother’s love of golf.
On May 26, Goran Jovanovic, CC, ALB, was honored for achieving Advanced Leader Bronze (ALB). This required Goran to serve for six months as a club officer (Vice President Membership, 2011), attend officer training and give two presentations from advanced manuals.
Congratulations to all, and thanks for helping Gelfand continue to excel!
