Our Division A sponsored a TLI Officers Training on February 6th at Lake Point. Judy Groff and Stan Coss heard some innovative ideas (see right column) that will get some test runs in our club over the next couple of months. Here Presenter Bill Marlow gets a response from Ridgefield VP of Education Rei Fuller.
The Pledge of Allegiance is not given in all American TM clubs. FSTM President Stan Coss introduced some of the history and significance of the pledge. (Info from this can be found on the Advance Blog/Inspiring Ideas tab)
Is it any wonder FSTM feels blessed to have meetings at Lake Point Landing? Dr. Stan Dienst and his wife Pat join in sampling the wonderful menu served up by Chef Dan. For more photos on this event, see the Celebration heading under the Miscellaneous tab.
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.
Unable to attend at 8am? There is another club in town.
