VanCore Toastmasters got into the spirit or shall I was was visited by Spirits this Wednesday. Costumes ranged from scary cute to dad joke witty – that was all you Jonathan.
Deborah’s halloween themed speech got us on the edge of our seats. It entailed visiting a D-Day cemetery in France where many Canadian soldiers had perished. The plot thickened as she described taking back to her Airbnb more than just eerie memories. A presence loomed over her while in the bathtub sending shivers down her spine. Like in many scary movies we were relived to find out that this one didn’t end in a blood bath, no pun intended.
We continued our session with creative halloween table topic questions from Connie. Questions referenced the appropriateness of halloween costumes, if the city should hold fireworks on this day, do older kids have the right to candy, what this day means to us and if we believe in spirits. The answers were extremely interesting to hear. Congratulations to Loa and Rhoda for winning the contest for best table topic answers respectively.
We closed the session with some treats, mingling and group pictures. Thank you to all those who participated in making this a truly memorable spooky Toastmasters.
