A lot has been happening with our Maverick Toastmasters over the last month. Not only are the temperatures dropping a few degrees, but the Maverick Toastmasters Club has been very busy.
At every meeting we present a word of the day. Anyone who fails to use the word during the meeting would feed our beloved kitty with a nickel. Kitty had a slight accident and is no longer able to perform her role. However, one of our members brought Piggy to join the group. Piggy likes to dress in her finest clothes and she is such a fan of Maverick Toastmasters that she even sports a Maverick tattoo!
Our very own Liz Shaw won the humorous speech contest at the area level and moves on to compete at the district level. Way to go Liz!!!!
Michael Milan was presented with his Advanced Leader Communication Certificate.
On October 24, 2017 Maverick Toastmasters hosted their annual Spooky Tales Contest. This was a family friendly event with good food, fun, and everyone is welcome to sign up to share a scary story. The MC was Elvira, also known as Liz Shaw. We owe a huge thank you to Liz for helping to make the evening so much fun!
We had some amazing speakers, and some incredible costumes. The winning speech was delivered by a future Toastmaster, Riley Feld. Her brother Jack Feld won best costume. Additional prizes were handed out for Scariest costume, Creative costume, Guest Participation, and best overall costume.
A Speech a Thon on October 31, 2017.
There will be a special presentation on first meeting in November to cover the new Pathways system that Toastmasters will be implementing.
Wishing everyone a safe and Happy Halloween!
