At the District Executive meeting, on October 22, a special recognition was given to a member who works in the background to help all the “leaders” in Founder’s District. He remains incognito and stays hidden until needed and shows up online when necessary.
For many years he has produced and published the directory that includes all the leaders of our District. He also expends his service to publish a Regional Directory with leaders of Districts 1, 3, 5, 12, 34, 52 and Founder's.
He has been a member of Astromasters since 1989 and led Founder’s as District Governor in 1999-2000. Because of his dedication the leaders at all levels can communicate successfully as he updates the directory as changes in our great district occur.
Congratulations to John Angiolillo, DTM, PDG on receiving the “Spirit of Excellence” award.
My Icebreaker was on October 3, 1956 to Toastmasters Club 121 in Santa Monica where I had a job managing a few engineers working on heat transfer to missiles. When I would go to my simple staff meeting with a few other managers, my heart would pound every time before I had to make a report, and a friend of my wife’s said I ought to join a Toastmaster Club. This was before women were allowed, and since it was an evening club in a restaurant, it was not uncommon to see communication skills be muddied with a few drinks before the talks. Nevertheless, I completed the required “Basic training” manual of twelve (not ten) speeches, and foolishly decided that being home with my wife and two kids took priority over Toastmasters.
