SANDGATE Toastmasters presented its Toastmaster of the Year Award to Christiane Pedler.

Immediate Past President Steve Rafferty made the presentation at a recent meeting.

"Since joining the club just over a year ago, Christiane has proved to be an enthusiastic vital member,” Mr Rafferty said.

"She excelled in her role of Vice President Membership last year, and has now taken on the role of Vice President Education.

"She also inspired other members to take up the challenge of visiting other Toastmasters Clubs, which resulted in Sandgate Toastmasters making the most visits in the area and winning the Passport Challenge.”

Sandgate Toastmasters meet at The Full Moon Hotel at 7pm on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month to learn communication skills. Visitors are welcome.
