Fellow Toastmasters of District 109
Happy Toastmasters New Year!

Today we celebrate together as we continue our journey in the wonderful world of Toastmasters. We have the privilege of being an amazing district. Spanning over two continents with multiple time zones we bring together different countries, languages, cultures, alphabets, food, music. Anything you can think of, we have multiple versions of it.

So, what do we all have in common?
Our passion!

Our passion in becoming a better version of ourselves. Our willingness to help each other to find our voice. Our ability to adapt, to overcome difficulties together and to find new ways to move forward.
Passion is contagious. The more you have it, the more I get it. And the more I have it, the more you get it. Let’s look forward to a passion pandemic.
Our motto this year is Passion beyond borders

Our passion is beyond the borders of our clubs, areas, and divisions. We all have it. We all can have more.
This year reach out to someone you don’t know yet. The only thing you need to do is to bring your passion with you. You will have a positive impact on that person, and you will also benefit.
It an incredible privilege to serve as your district director for the 2022-2023 term.
With gratitude, I salute you and look forward to an amazing Toastmasters year together.
