Picacho Division Director, DeAnn Drottz
Saguaro Division Director, Mike Nelson

Many of our clubs have celebrated memorable anniversaries this year, Saguaro celebrated 80 years as one of District 3’s first clubs; Camelback, Reddy’s and Roundup celebrated 60 years; Cochise, Granada and Roadrunners celebrated 50 years.
As I visited these clubs, I noticed the spirit of friendship and community in each club. A special bond, a feeling that everyone has the same goal and working together to achieve it. They know what makes a team ‘tick’. Our demo team has this comradery and our Club Rescue Teams will be developing this same spirit as they grow.
Choose to make a difference. Nancy Starr-Cassidy chose to make a difference and because of her dedication and volunteering efforts, SRP donated $2,250 to District 3. Volunteer to serve on one of our many committees. Your reward will be seeing your club grow, helping a member reach their goal or evaluating that next winning contest speech and these are priceless. You can volunteer to take part in a demo meeting, help the club get it’s charter then become their mentor. How rewarding is that!
Remember we are going to Las Vegas in August to see District 3’s International speech winner, Michael Desiderio, compete in the semi-finals and potential World Championship round. Register online here.
Hallie Adams, DTM

Why mentor? “We all carry the seeds of greatness within us, but we need an image as a point of focus in order that they may sprout.” ~ Epictetus
New members need someone to explain the program to them and show them how to prepare for various meeting roles. They also need help preparing and rehearsing their first few speeches. Mentors can supply the valuable personal attention and ongoing support new members need. Visit http://www.toastmasters.org/mentoramember.
