Hello Toastmasters,

We wanted to remind you that Contest Season is over and we are resuming our regularly scheduled meetings. For those of you that had a chance to go away for March-break, we are jealous 🙂

It’s mid-March and that means we have three-and-a-half months until the end of the club year. So far this year has been great, but it’s not over yet and we still have a lot planned. We have grown as a club with over 10 new members: Welcome everyone and we look forward to hearing your Ice Breakers. Also, a lot of our members have proudly represented the club at the Area and Division contests: Thank you to the contest organizers, contestants, and everyone who helped make the contests a success! Also, thank you to the members who came out to support the club!

For all new members, April 18th, 2013 has been set aside as the “Ice Breaker Marathon”, take advantage of it and sign up with Myqeel (
