With 2017 as the 25th anniversary of our founding, the club's continued success has been the result of the contributions of talented and dedicated members and the energy and leadership of executive committee members through the years.

Congratualations to Toastmaster Reema Duggal on achieving her Advanced Communicator Silver award.
The Advanced Communicator Silver is the second highest award in the Advanced Communication Series and requires the Toastmaster to complete the Competent Communicator manual, as well as four other advanced communication manuals.
It is truly a difficult and long path that Reema Duggal has travelled!
Next stop: Advance Communiator Gold. Good Luck!
