Hello Fellow Toastmasters and Prospective Guests,
Seats at Club Meetings are filling up nicely with members, and guests responding to our attractive new “Vancoretoasters.com” site. It’s quite amazing that so many are finding our 3:15 to 4:30 PM meeting time slot really convenient for them. At this rate, soon we won’t need to wear several hats during meetings, which was not such a bad thing as the experience provides lots of practice in the different roles.
Our newest members contributed admirably to the last meeting. The Ice-Breaker by Victor on three Rs: Rebellion, Religion and Relationship was pretty advanced for a first time speech! Angela prepared an excellent Inspiration about Freedom—can’t wait to hear her Ice-Breaker. Theo stepped right up and evaluated Victor’s speech.
Mary Lou who had a two minute professional speech to practice was pleased with the helpful and relevant evaluation given by guest, Debra. Table Topics Master–VP of Education, Connie had participants, including the guests Corrine, Debra and Oliver, taking on topics from the logging industry to Lou Costello to Fish and Chips.
Oliver volunteered to count the “ums and aahs” and Corrine was a great timer. Mary Lou covered both the TT Evaluation and General Evaluation. The Chair, Susan reminded all to try and attend the Division H International Speech and Evaluation Contest on Saturday, April 21, from 1-4 PM, at #300-775 Burrard Street, to proudly cheer on our very own member Carla who won the Area 75 Best Evaluator Contest on April 4th.
Our club continues to grow with vibrant and engaging speakers. We welcome new comers who want to learn to speak in public and/or strengthen their existing speaking skills. Our downtown Vancore Toastmasters Club is easily accessible to the business community located at the corner of Hornby and West Pender St.
