WOW! What an extraordinary month May promises to be.

The annual convention, Lekgotla La District 74 is around the corner and this is always THE event of the year. The District’s International Public speaking Championships come to an exhilarating climax on 8 May with the winner being announced on that day. Six finalists will be battling it out after surviving the semi-finals on 24 April from a group of twelve.  Have you registered for this online  FREE event yet?

‘No man is an island’, wrote John Donne the poet, and neither are Toastmasters clubs and their members. This will be evident at the MayCon which takes place from the 6th to the 9th of May, 2021. Members from all over Southern Africa and beyond will be virtually mixing and mingling in a euphoric and intoxicating four days of workshops, contest, keynote speakers and good old Toastmasters FUN. Time to make friends and network too.

MayCon is also a time when Toastmasters International holds the annual business meeting. Make sure that your club’s proxy is assigned so that your club’s voice will be heard as organisational decisions are made.

You may not be able to attend every session but pick out one or two and check them out. Be sure to promote Toastmasters by inviting friends and family along in our bid to increase membership.

Our hearts are heavy as we say goodbye to another distinguished lady and fellow Toastmaster, DTM Beth Thomas, who passed away early this week.

Are you interested in writing your own material guided by our regular pillars (New Member Moment, Mentor/Mentee relationships, Emissaries and Social Events) and tell us what’s going on in your hub? We would love to hear from you, in 50-100 words and a good quality related picture at; district74pr@gmail.com.

Keep your community safe from Covid.
