August 27th, 2018 Special Format Meeting – A Wellness Workshop

What does wellness mean to you?

August 20th, 2018 Meeting – What If

Curiosity has always been the driving force behind any growth. Our curiosity makes us question, “what if …”.
What are some of the things that make you think – say, what if … Things you’re curious about?

Come join us as we discuss this topic “What if”.
If you think, what if you attend the meeting, it does not work out for you but what if it does!

Don’t think just join us; you can practice your public speaking skills while you’re at it.

We are an all time friendly and fun loving group who support each other to improve our leadership and public speaking skills.

August 13th, 2018 Meeting – Friendship

What does friendship mean to you?
Do you consider friends as pearls in the ocean of life?
As Christie Brinkley says,” Smile with the world, It’s a symbol of friendship and peace! ”

While celebrating friendship doesn’t need a specific date, come and join us in the month of August when “Friendship Day” is celebrated. You can enjoy not only the friendly smile and company from our fellow toastmasters but also practice your public speaking.

Overcome your fear of speaking in front of an audience at the Table Topic Section where guests can be invited to do a 1 to 2 minutes impromptu speech on a given topic (with the guest’s consent of course)

We are an all time friendly and fun loving group who support each other to improve our leadership and public speaking skills.

More From the “Friendship” Meeting:

We had a fun and friendly meeting with the theme “Friendship”! We missed everyone who could not make it to the meeting. Check out some more radiant thoughts from our fellow members below.

“Friends have been an important part of my life.  Since I have had arthritis, my friends have provided tremendous amount of support.  Many times, my friends give more to me than I can return as a friend and I call these my true friends.” – Raj

“I value trust the most in friendship.” – Jimmy

“What I value most in friendship is the time spent talking with my friends.” – Tambi.

“Friendship to me is the joy of witnessing the ever-changing lives of my close friends over twenty plus years. In true friendship we share unconditional love, value each other, listen with true presence and trust each other with are deepest truth. Friendship is a true gift!” – Krysta

Don’t forget to join us on next Monday August 20th as we will be discussing an even interesting theme “What If”. Please look at the recent stories section for more detail about the meeting.
