Our Recent Meetings
September 1 – First Night Back
What a turnout for our first night back! It looks like we are all ready to start this year off with a bang. This year, we really look forward to goals being achieved, and challenges being over come. Remember: How you show up here, is how you show up everywhere.
September 8 – Community
Communities are formed not just by cities, but by groups like us supporting one another. There were a lot of great evaluations and we were introduced to Tracy who in her first year as a toastmaster has taken on an officer role! Where did it all start? A meme… (and not a troll meme either.)
September 10 – One Stop
Holy cow did that go well! A lot of people were really interested in joining us and it wasn’t just because there was candy on the table. Thank you so much to Tracy and her volunteers for setting up a great table and really getting out names out there.
September 15 – Motivation
I love it when we all end up on the same topic. Sure that’s why we have theme, but seriously everyone was trying to inspire the rest of the club. It was so uplifting I almost ran a marathon… then changed my mind and went to bed. I am fired up though, and hope everyone else is too. Speaking of which, what do you want to achieve this year?
September 22 – Speech Contest
A moment of silence for anyone who missed this contest. As usual, the Humorous Speech Contest was a total riot and the Table Topics Contest really gave us some food for thought. Ed swung in on a vine and took home first place in both contests and Jane (on her first speech ever) took silver in the Humorous Speech Contest. Congratulations to both our winners!
September 29 – Bulls eye
So much to cover, so little meeting. Not only did we get lesson from Tara on how to use Easy Speak, we also got our latest club ribbon and watched our executive team get their training certificates.
From your Executive
Your current executive (Shahayar wasn’t at this meeting)! Sadly, we are looking for someone to take over as VP Education because Kim is moving away at the end of the month. If you feel you may be up for the job please let us know!
A few of us went to visit the Dawson Creek on Monday, September 12 and it was a lot of fun. Going to other clubs is a great way to get to know other toastmasters and to get speeches done faster. They also happen to be a fun and inviting group. If you ever want to visit, they meet on Mondays from 6:45-8:30pm in the Aboriginal room of the Dawson Creek College.
Toast Masters International
When was the last time you truly experienced gratefulness? You don’t have to tell me, I just want you to think about it. Out of all the thinks humans can feel, gratefulness, is about the best one there is. You feel it because you found something nice in the world, something to be glad about. Many times, that leads you to share it with people, whether by a simple thank you, or just sharing the story. When you keep an attitude of gratefulness, you feel better and you make other people feel better. So on any level, big or small, what are you grateful for?
As for Me
I like Autumn a lot. The colours of the leaves, fancy coffees, and an excuse to bundle up and not pretend you know how to be fashionable. I also love Halloween, which is coming up fast. The October 27th meeting is our closest meeting to it and I heard there will be a costume contest, so have fun and dress up! I know I will.ce October 27th to be fashionable.
Knowledge. Action. Integrity.
