Wow, what an amazing day we had for our inaugural Fall Training Expo. Our training theme was focused on Club Excellence topics to help strengthen everyone’s home club. All the details can be found here:


Jacqueline Smith, Mike Akins, Sheryl Roush and Marcia Wood

Thanks go out to the 25 volunteers and 13 speakers who executed such a large event for our 160 attendees. We especially appreciate Sheryl Roush traveling to Colorado to share her Marketing and Speechcraft expertise while closing with her ‘Heart of a Toastmaster’ keynote.

Rhea Thompson, Immediate Past District Director, was roasted and thanked for her service during lunch. Then after dinner she recognized many Toastmasters that earned education and leadership awards during the Hall of Fame.


Special recognition goes out to these worthy recipients:


Stephen Moulton, Area Director of the Year
Victoria Cox, Division Director of the Year
Trixie Hunter-Merrill, Toastmaster of the Year

Many attendees expressed how valuable the Expo was to them.
