The end of the old Toastmasters year, and the beginning of the new.
The Toastmasters year begins on 1st July and at Waverley’s Annual Awards Dinner on 23rd June, Brian Duffy handed over his presidential medal and the running of the club to incoming President, Kevin Miller.
In a heartfelt speech, Brian thanked the outgoing committee for their hard work, dedication and support over the past 12 months, and it was not just with words that Brian thanked his team but with presents too. Each gift had been thoughtfully chosen (and wrapped!) and presented.
It’s the task of Immediate Past Presidents to act as advisors to the President during their term of office, and Brian made particular mention of the value, to him personally, of Eileen Scott’s support and advice over the past year.
The meal was interspersed with tall stories from the 8 Tall Tales Contestants. see the next post for the details.
