District 3 Toastmasters: Where Leaders Are Made
The Area Speech Contests are completed and everyone is looking forward to the Division Speech Contests starting October 4. We have heard many hilarious speeches as our area contestants told us about their families, their friends, and many different situations they have encountered as they walked their pathway called life. The Table Topics questions have been thought provoking and stimulated creative answers. I am looking forward to hearing the questions derived from the minds of some very deep thinking individuals for the Divisions’ Table Topics contests. October 4 is our Navajo Division Contest starting at 9 a.m., Salvation Army Citadel-Chapel, 628 North 3rd Ave. Phoenix 85003. Following will be the Zuni Division starting at 1 p.m. with the Hogwarts School of Speechcraft inviting all attendees to dress accordingly. October 11, 18 and 25 are the dates for the other division contests. Go to events calendar for the times and places for these contests.
What a great presentation on mentoring Lynne Brasher gave to the Leadership team at the September 20 Area and Division Governors’ training. If you would like the special presentation on the basics of mentoring that Lynne has put together, please email her at .

Open to current Toastmasters who enjoy the invaluable lessons that Toastmasters provide as well as enjoy social events that are separate from Toastmasters.
The club will meet 2 times a month for regular Toastmasters meetings that consist of organizing meetings, building confidence in speaking in front of an audience, thinking fast on your feet with topical conversation and improving grammar, speaking and many other skills.
We will also meet 1-2 times a month for fun and family-friendly social events such as bowling nights, hiking excursions, movie nights, BBQ outings, day trips, community outreach and more.
The goal is to develop us as leaders and communicators and build camaraderie through outside social events. Our social events will mostly be designed to bring the whole family!
