Cooke County Area Toasters celebrated their official
Charter Celebration on September 26, 2011 at the Gainesville Civic
Center with distinguished speakers, members and guests.

speeches for the evening were “What’s in It for You?” by Diana Patton, District 25 Governor, and “How Leaders are Made” by David Martin, Past District 25 Governor.

Orland Woodard. We were the second club in the
District to receive the new banner since the rebranding. The club also
a lectern.

Orland Woodard and Julie Phillips, with
assistance from former
Toastmaster Sue Newhouse, contacted Toastmasters International about
forming a
new club in the Gainesville area, and District 25 immediately responded. Club sponsors were Orland Woodard and Lindsay Dillard. Club mentors
were Cindy Hinckley and Audette
Kincaid. Amelinda Salas, Area 51 Governor, inducted club

Cooke County Area Toasters is grateful to its officers
and members and these District 25 members for their perseverance and
dedication in gaining a club charter for the Gainesville and area
