Monthly Dispatch

July 2022


Hello {First Name},

Dear fellow Toastmasters,

Hello Toastmasters, I hope this message finds you doing well and enjoying what the early days of summer have brought. For those of you going on adventures, I wish you safe travels. For those staying closer to home, I wish you health and happiness and great times spent with friends and family. If your thoughts drift to Toastmasters, be sure to check the list of Sunshine Clubs in this edition of the Dispatch and attend a meeting or two. Enjoy the summer sunshine and fabulous times that are sure to be had! I leave you with this quote by Van Morrison " Smell the sea and feel the sky. Let your soul and spirit fly." 

Until September-Twila

Message from District Director


How can I inspire you? What do you need to take your Toastmaster membership to the next level? Let’s recap a bit & then look forward. This has been quite the year. We held the first Tall Tales Contest in many years. To say the least, it was fun. Our International Speech Contest winner, Joanne Smith, went to Regional Finals. We had star-studded training, organized by the divisions & the district.  Read More...

Recognizing the Best of the Best

District 42 is where Distinguished leaders are made and where we recognize the phenomenal leaders who make our district as successful as it is.  We celebrated excellence in leadership at the spring conference with DARE awards for Area Directors and with the District of the Year awards for the leaders who contributed most across our district from 2020 to 2021.  Read More...


Membership building

We always aim to run meetings on time, finish speeches on time and reach membership goals on time. In essence, we always try to “Beat the Clock”, hence the name given to this period’s incentives. More Information...

Leadership Training

I know you go to online meetings all the time and it goes like clockwork! Hah! Nothing goes like clockwork! The difference is whether or not that is obvious! On June 15, the part that did not work was pretty obvious, right off the start! Fortunately, or not, that first big presentation was about leadership, and how we all drop the balls at some point; it is a question of picking them up and getting back on track!  Read More...
