Each DTM was also given a burgundy velvet pouch embroidered with their name in gold lettering, in which they could keep their DTM medallion.
At the end of the evening, there was a receiving line to congratulate each person on their achievement.
It was an honor to meet these Toastmasters and follow their journey as they finished their goals on the way to their DTM award.
