Talk of Lincolnshire (TOL), #6244, nominates Robert and Laurie Harrington as Toastmasters of the Month for February, 2020. They have been with TOL for many years. They are active participants – in our regular meetings, holding various club offices, contests, mentoring and anything else the club or their fellow members need and require. Robert and Laurie have made indelible impressions and impact on the lives of many. They attended both February meetings and actively participated in accomplishing meetings roles as well as a plethora of associated duties and de facto mentorship which enhance our members’ appreciation of and performance in the Toastmasters program. They always arrive early to and are among the last to depart from meetings. They were trail blazing pioneers introducing Pathways into TOL. Robert and Laurie Harrington’s attitude has always been cheerful, instructive, helpful and eager to learn and be helpful.
Talk of Lincolnshire (TOL), #6244, nominates Maria Ficchi as our Toastmaster of the Month for January, 2020. In whatever she engages, Maria is the topper. She works persistently on her personal development. She has completed her CTM and consistently delivers outstanding presentations. Maria walks many extra miles to assist other members in fulfilling their goals. Currently she is our V.P., Education and our Area N-42 Director.
As our Area N-42 Director, Maria has raised the bar, setting higher standards of dedication, service and servant leadership. She utilizes every method of communication to individual Toastmasters and clubs as well as among them. There is no matter for which clubs have not been proactively informed, reminded, followed up and matters resolved by her.
In January alone Maria planned, coordinated and executed three detailed, special project meetings for TOL. She provided detailed and personalized assistance for members in the areas of mentoring and educational progress. She delivered presentations during our regular meetings.

In all that she accomplishes Maria exhibits the highest of dedication, generosity, goodwill, acumen, professionalism, responsiveness, a proactive helping-hand and good nature.
