Irving wholeheartedly supports the ICE (Irving City Employees) Breakers Toastmasters Club. The city offers the group a place to meet at City Hall and lets employees take a break from their jobs to attend weekly meetings. For its support, Irving received a Corporate Recognition Award. Stan See, regional advisor of Toastmasters International, presented the award to city manager Tommy Gonzalez at a luncheon meeting on Friday. Gonzalez said he was glad the city could support the club. “We provide the forum and give you the resources you need to succeed and lead,” he said. “This award proves you don’t want to lose and that you want to win. You are the best.” Mayor Beth Van Duyne sent a proclamation in recognition of the award. And then the group continued its meeting. Irving officer Naya Pope serves as the club’s president. Her boss, Police Chief Larry Boyd attended to show his support.  The club meets at noon Thursdays at City Hall, 825 W. Irving Blvd. Call 972-721-2473.
