It makes my heart sad to know that this is the last note I will share with you as your 2014-2015 Founder's District Governor. It has been my honor and great pleasure to serve each member and club in the district these past three years. But I have a special honor as well – I will be the very last "District Governor" in Founder's District! Going forward, that position will be called "District Director".
My Toastmasters journey started in 1999 when I joined Le Gourmet, a dining club that meets once a month at different restaurants throughout Orange County. I was a slow starter compared to many, but once I understood the vast knowledge and experience that the Toastmasters communication and leadership programs offered, I couldn't seem to stop. Serving the members of Founder's District as District Governor seemed to be the logical progression in my personal growth.
It is my honor and privilege to present the Gene Beckwith award for 2014-2015 to Linda and Richard Daugherty. They have served as the official district photographers for the past three years, but served in that role for several years before that. They have literally taken thousands of pictures of our members at LACE, Area/Division contests, district meetings, special occasions, and conferences. If it had to do with the district and our members, you can guarantee that Linda and Richard would be there - with cameras and smiles.
Founder's District is proud to announce the 2015 Spring Conference Communication and Leadership award recipient, Samwise Didier. You'll get a chance to know more about him at the District Conference on April 25 during an interview style conversation that will be conducted by past District International Speech Contest winner, Mun Ng.
