Thank you to all of the members and distinguished guests that took time out of their Saturdays to attend the Embracing Cultures Toastmasters Club’s Spring Open House on May 3rd! The event was a huge success, and it’s all thanks to your attendance and participation. We believe many visitors will be returning to future meetings.

thank you

“Hospitality Around the World” was the theme of the meeting. Rehana served as our Toastmaster for the day, and did a fabulous job introducing the club, the speakers, and the roles. She was welcoming and warm, yet informative and professional. Liana delivered her humorous speech about an important kitchen staple. Guest Speaker Syrena gave an honest, candid account of how Toastmasters helped her in her career and personal development. Brenda led an informative and engaging round of Table Topics by giving us an insight into the rituals of Egypt, Ancient Rome, Arabia, and Europe. Brenda encouraged several guests to contribute. The visitors impressed the audience with their abilities to think on their feet with grace and humor.

Perhaps my favorite part of the meeting was the exotic feast we all enjoyed following the meeting. Every member brought a dish or two that represented their culture or home country. It was a gastronomic adventure!

If you missed out on the Open House, we invite you to visit our club on Saturday mornings at 10.30am. This coming Saturday (5/10), our theme will be “Holidays.” Be prepared to learn, participate, and have a lot of fun! We look forward to “Embracing Cultures” with you!
