CC#6 My Vegas Vacation

Div J Director

Anne went to Las Vegas and told us about it.  There were death defying magic shows and late night Black Jack games.  The fireworks on New Years Eve were spectacular to watch with friends to celebrate the beginning of the year ahead of us with the same amount of new adventures, fun and friendship that we had during the trip.

We were delighted to have Division J Director Poorna visit us. She came to give the engraved Division J Table Topics Trophy. She also gave an inspirational speech about being a Toastmaster in Dubai and attending other Conferences in the Middle East. It is always great to have guest speakers share their ideas and passions! Thanks for your encouraging words about the friendly, fun, and creative meetings at Igniters!

Carolyn Kaldy, DTM, and the Program Quality Director (South), attended our meeting on Jan. 5th to present Nandini with her trophy for winning the Table Topics Award for District 42.
With her usual altruism, Nandini asked us a question about how “one new member can inspire others and what happens if you try. If you jump in and act spontaneously with a smile, imagine the ripples that you can make in a year. She talked about what each of us have done to make Igniters a great club. 
               Congratulations Nandini – you are an example for the rest of us.
