After our few Easter words in here and on Facebook about the realignment and the importance of ‘’letting it be’’ in order to get on with the real purpose of Toastmasters, we enjoyed a lot of reactions.
One came from Toulouse, France: Dominique Carrasco. He sent us this excellent tape in French language, introducing Toastmasters in general and his bi-lingual English-French club “Rosemasters” in particular.
Many Toastmasters are being confronted with this huge realignment into four Districts.
It’s not easy to plan new frontiers and please all Toastmasters. Some will be disappointed
as a neighbouring club will not be in the same District anymore. Or countries like Holland
and Belgium – while sharing the same language, – can kiss each other goodbye. One of them
will join Germany, the other France . . . (I heard)
Well, we’ll have to get used to the fact that some clubs will be separated by necessary
bureaucracy but should be happy in the knowledge that we still can enjoy exactly the same
contacts across Districts as we have always done.
