Hail and Farewell 2014

Dear Fellow Toastmasters,

How many of you have heard other Toastmasters talking about the District 83 - Hail and Farewell event but have said, “Why am I being told this? It doesn’t apply to me!” The answer: This DOES apply to everyone!

The Hail & Farewell event is a multi-level celebration:

• Awarding individuals, clubs, areas, divisions their accomplishments during the past year, in the categories of:
o Triple Crown
o Traveling Gavel
o Providing a lead that became a club
o Club Coaching
o Distinguished Clubs, Areas, Divisions
o And other awards
• Installing the new district officers
o Area, Division, and the “Top 3”
• Saying “thank you” to all who have served the district during the past year
• Roasting the out-going District Governor
• Networking and enjoying the company of our fellow toastmasters while having a nice meal.
• Did I mention food?

“I went to my first Hail & Farewell because Dave was going to roast the out-going District Governor and I was asked to videotape the event, especially the roasts. Neither of us had a clue what to expect. It was actually a very enjoyable event and we had fun! Not only was I installed as a new district officer, I was able to pick up the awards and accomplishments for my club and members. I even received an award for having a distinguished area the year before. (Yes, I was Area Governor two sequential years.) I heard several great “roasting” speeches for the out-going District Governor with lots of laughter but most of all; I had the opportunity to talk with fellow toastmasters who I had only heard of by name or had seen at a distance at a contest or conference. What an enjoyable time and very worthwhile! Just try it.” Janice Buffalow, ACB, ALS

Why not give it a try, what do you have to lose; better yet, what opportunity do you have to gain?

The date is July 26, 2014 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm at Galloping Hill Caterers, in Union NJ; price is $35.00 per person (by July 15) and $40.00 at the door.

Address: The Galloping Hill Caterers, 395 Chestnut Street,Union, NJ 07083 Website:
