Our April Open House made a strong presence at the YMCA: clockwise, Speaker Hoyt Griffith gives an impersonation; Evaluator Tuck Cox reviews notes alongside a guest; Speaker Ron Climer expounds on three points; and Kyle Jones, president of the sister club, runs the meeting.  Yes, women spoke, too; four of the six prospects were women.

contestThe participants, L to R, in the 3-2 FSTM Speech Contest are Larry Stringer, Karla Reese, Stan Coss, Tucker Cox, and Ron Climer.  We have no contestants in the Division Contest on 4-9 at 9:00.  But you’ll still be inspired if you come to the Glenn Theater, Owen Heart Medical Center, Mission St. Joseph Hospital, at 509 Biltmore Avenue, Asheville, NC. 28801.

A Table Topic Extravaganza on 11-18 was headed up by Toastmaster Jackie Branscum and monitored by her three Table Topic Masters: Amy Thomas, Karla Reese, and Betty McCallister. Meeting in circles, members in each of the three groups had a great opportunity to respond to a variety of prompts and then have a round robin of glows and grows from other participants. It was a low stress method of practicing impromptus and getting to know fellow members. Let’s do more!

Join Four Seasons Toastmasters and work on honing your speaking skills and leadership skills for the cost of $10 per month. Oh, by the way, you will have more fun at eight o’clock in the morning than you can have anywhere else. This “scary” bunch represents most attendees at the 10-28 meeting. Toastmasters wear a variety of hats in their diverse roles. (See more on the Misc. Archives tab.)

We meet every Wednesday 8:00 am to 9:00 am in the auditorium (called the Smoky Mountain Theater) at Lake Point Landing retirement community in Hendersonville, NC.
We invite interested people to visit our club. Try to be there before eight in the morning so that we can have time to visit with you before we start the meeting.  (see map below)

Youth Toastmasters filled all the prepared speaking roles as well as the toastmaster role and several of the eyes and ears team positions as part of their graduation exercise. Three sets of consecutive 8-12 class sessions were run from spring 2014 to spring 2015 with a total of 30 graduates.
