Enjoy Toastmasters in the Summer!
Download the current list of Sunshine Clubs for 2016 (PDF)
Why not meet in the summer? We don’t need to chase people if they don't want to attend in July and August but why close down a club if even a few members wish to meet? Members just might want to retain skills, get in another speech or two, tackle some of those CL projects everyone is begging to do and grow the clubs! If you aren’t meeting, clubs just may lose a new member who wants to dip his or her toes into the Toastmaster ocean in the summer!
Earn a bright shiny ribbon for your banner! Join the Sunshine Clubs program!
To earn this award:
- meet at least twice a month in June, July, August and September.
- have at least one evaluated manual speech.
- take a picture of the members enjoying themselves and send the photo to Del Duffield, Sunshine Club Coordinator for posting on the District Facebook page. Post it on your own website or Facebook page too!
- sign up two new members between July 1 and September 30.
We rely on clubs’ integrity for the first two requirements.
Club not meeting this summer? Want to sneak in an extra meeting or two? See above for the list of Sunshine Clubs or contact the Sunshine Club co-ordinator for more info – the clubs would be delighted to have you visit! Just a quick call or email to confirm that they’re meeting and to let them know you’re coming, and off you go! Enjoy!
