The two Cranbrook Toastmasters Clubs were ably represented at recent Area and Division contests. Cyndi Port (left), representing Cranbrook Pheonix Toastmasters Club, and Kathy Simon (right), with Cranbrook First Toastmasters, both took first place in their respect club contests. The pair then competed in the Area contest, held in Cranbrook, and again took the two top spots. Port and Simon advanced to the Division contest, held in Vernon two weeks ago. The Division stretches from the Alberta border to the furthest edges of the Okanagan region. At Divisions, Simon took third place in the “Humorous Speech” contest, while Port took first place in “Table Topics.” As first place winner, Port will now head to District competition in Richmond, which includes clubs from all over B.C. As of next year, Toastmasters International will be dividing District 21 (B.C.) — which includes 289 clubs, into two districts.
