London Western Toastmasters

Thank you London Western Toastmasters for recognizing myself Rachel Lacey and many others for their achievements last night. Sue Storie had a trophy named in her honour, Chris won the Toastermaster of the Year Award, and I received Speaker of the Year (very unexpectedly). Wether you win a big award or win best speaker, best evaluator, or most enthusiastic of the night, I think is so wonderful that everyone is recognized. Congrats also to Sue, Scott & Riz for their awards of the evening. I am so proud to be a part of this great club.
