Kicking off the New Year!

We were dazzled by a group of truly phenomenal speakers at our first Toastmasters meeting of the year. We had a packed house with over 16 visitors. Well done on showing up and starting the new year off right!

Our Toastmaster and President Yanga hosted the meeting “R&R: Resolutions and Results,” selecting Pertinacity as the word of the day.

Rutendo spoke of her mentor’s fall from grace; Emily warmed our hearts with her “sales pitch” for the organisation Mothers that Care; Nashad toasted his daughter’s engagement; Yanga led an educational speech on Toastmaster’s roles; just in the nick of time, Odwa moved us with his speech on his efforts in his hometown of Willowvale, Gatyana.

Visitors Gary, Wesley, Sipho, Ati, and Claire spoke like pros for Emily’s table topics session.

Although everyone did an outstanding job, Odwa and Rutendo both won “Best Speaker,” Sipho won “Best Table Topics,” and Gina won “Best Evaluator.”

Let’s keep those new year’s resolutions going! We’ll see you at the next meeting on January 31st.
