Last Tuesday we welcomed in the new year by recognising members who have contributed to the club in a number of ways. Our president, Paulina, presented eleven well deserved awards to the following:
Anna Bevan, who takes home the illustrious ‘Smedley Speakers Award’!!
Jackie Gallego, the guru of evaluations.
Lucy Rosa, a champion of impromptu speeches.
Eleanor Handslip, for being our most inspiring member and incredible ex-president.
Chris Wedgewood, for always taking on roles at the final hour.
Ariel Elboim, for mentoring and supporting a flock of new Toastmasters.
Mohammed Salih, for the huge amount of work he puts in behind the scenes.
Stephanie Walker, for her incredible attendance and speeches this year (I don’t think she’s ever missed a meeting!).
And to Anna Rodriguez, Michelle Browne and David Scott for all their amazing efforts.
It’s not that often we are recognised for all our hard work, so this was a very special evening for all. Well done to everyone and thank you for your dedication to our fantastic club! Good luck for the next year!
