A.S.T. - District 50, Area 66, Club 9872


(Addison Singles Items Highlighted in Orange)


Elizabeth Gustwick, CTM, Area 61 Governor, was very busy in August running a Toastmasters booth at the Business Expo and Trade Days show in
Addison.  She and her crew of Siobhan Lydon, CTM; Joe Nave, ATM; Linda Pederson; Assistant Area 61 Governor Brian Shade, ATM-B; and Bunny  Summerlin set up, stocked, and manned the Town North Division TM booth.
Sample TM magazines, TMI organization information, public speaking tips, and a Town North Division Club Contact List were available to passers-by. We expect several Town North Clubs will receive visitors and
new members as a result of the efforts of this team. Each club in Town North has been asked to make a small contribution to defray the costs of this effort; if your club would like to contribute, please contact Elizabeth, at 972-242-5872.


Do you hear bells? Well, someone does! Wedding bells, that is! Patricia D. Shaw, CTM, of the Talk Of The Tower Club recently got married to Eugene H. Bock, Jr.
