2018 WILL BE THE TOPS, THE BEST, THE FINEST, UNSURPASSED, AMAZING, AND MOST WONDERFUL YEAR FOR CLUB #28 EVER IN THE HISTORY OF ALL TOASTMASTERS CLUBS AND I SAY THAT KNOWING FULL WELL THAT TIME IS INFINITE.
By Kenneth H.Walley DTM (January 2018)
Of course, Club #28 broke all kinds of records in 2017. There was our 15th President’s Distinguished Award. Contest winners, Area Directors, Leadership awards, membership growth, everyone reaching their personal goals… We had at least one CC, CL, ACB, ALB, ACS, ALS and a DTM this year. That is amazing.
We cemented our reputation as the preeminent Toastmasters Club on Earth. If there was a Toastmasters club on the International Space Station, we would be better than that club too.
If there was a Toastmasters Club Hall of Fame. Club #28 would not only be in it, the Hall of Fame itself would be named after us!
I know what you are thinking… I am just stating the obvious.
What is hard to imagine is how can 2018 match so many accomplishments on such an epic scale as 2017?
Club #28 is just gearing up. We have so many of our members just coming into their own as communicators and leaders. I see those of us who meet every week at the Herndon Branch Library setting the example for our communities here in Central Florida, and beyond.
The potential of our members is unlimited. Day in and day out, at our jobs, at our leisure activities, at our places of worship, with friends, even with total strangers; Club #28 members take the confidence we create, the lessons we learn and the leadership we have gained and pass that on to others.
We have a mission to make the world better.
I have to admit that it feels good to be a part of something that is positive and meaningful. Yes, Club #28 is that. The Orlando Toastmasters Club is going to have the best year ever. That’s a fact.
I am not saying that we are supermen and superwomen. All I am saying is just watch us in 2018.
Join us! You’ll see.
