Subject: Congratulations to our Distinguished Governors
For the second year in a row the membership in District 53 has achieved Distinguished status. I would like to thank each and everyone of you that took on a leadership role this past year for having the vision to give back to our members. Even though your name may not appear on the list below your contributions are very much appreciated and without them none of this could be possible.
It was a truly an extraordinary year that I will remember for a lifetime. You all had role in a life changing experience for many of our members. Stand proud of your accomplishments, take a breath and set your next goal. I know that you will not only achieve that goal, but you will be very successful in the process.
Thank you again for such a wonderful and rewarding journey. I will never forget any of you as your efforts made it all possible.
Yours in Toastmasters,
John Lynch, DTM
