Trinity Toastmasters Club was chartered in 1965. They’ve been around through many changes. Perhaps they have some advice to pass along to Toastmasters in other clubs. Give them a shout and some applause.
“Trinity Toastmasters is a fun place to be on a Monday night,” says Tom Ancell, a member for several years.
“We have fun at every meeting, no matter what. Often, we have a jokester to practice that skill and start us off on a light note. We also occasionally play a toastmaster-related game just for a change. I’ve had mini debates between two people on silly subjects like. ‘why cats and not dogs?’ Contestants have 1 minute to answer. Every year, we have a Christmas party. And several times over the years we’ve had picnics with impromptu speech contests at White Rock Lake,” according to Joyce Ancell, Vice President of Education.
“I attribute our longevity to the membership, which consists mainly of professionals with a variety of backgrounds. As professionals (healthcare professionals, business owners, retired, or matured), and others, they all understand commitment. After working with groups where the members get frustrated and then walk away, this is certainly not the case at Trinity. We think we have a good recipe for success but, when we sprinkle a bit of fun on top, the taste one gets after a meeting, well, you just wanna come back,” remarks Robert Mayes, President.
According to Toastmasters International’s Find A Club, Trinity Toastmasters Club meets on Monday evenings at 6:30 PM at Denny’s Restaurant on US 75 between Walnut Hill and Royal Lane. They welcome visitors. Check them out.
