An active club of an international, non-profit organization, Voyagers Toastmasters is an excellent resource for those who want to be more involved in their community. Here people from all backgrounds learn how to develop, create and present powerful communication messages – using the power of words as well as the latest presentation technology.

Voyagers members learn to use onscreen slides, web meetings, and social media for more effective communications. Our motto is “Making communications technology easy!”

Many companies sponsor their staff to join and attend meetings in order to improve their communication, managerial, customer service and sales skills; so be sure to ask your HR people about Toastmasters.

March 22nd Meeting

Mindfulness was the theme for the March 22, 2018 meeting.

Elucidate was the word of the day. We had an extended table topics session, thank to Cynthia P, on the mindfulness theme which meant that many Toastmasters had an opportunity to practice their impromptu speaking.

Nancy won table topics by talking about how yoga helps her be mindful about where she left her keys!

Hal S gave a riveting speech entitled Protecting our Democracy encouraging us to eliminate undue influences on our political system.

Winners this week:
Table Topics: Nancy J
Most Improved: Angelique H
Best Evaluator: Rene R
Best Speaker: Hal S
Huggie: Mark I – for overcoming technical difficulties
Stick it: the missing HDMI cable

What happened here? – October 5th

It was exciting. It was world changing. Well maybe not revolutionary but it not a good meeting.

We learned all sorts of vital information about October 5th as we celebrated the birth of Anaheim and the first televised Presidential address from the White House, thanks to Toastmaster Jan C. October 5th will no longer just be another day in history to us!

Terry H. taught us that a used bike can be infinitely more valuable than a new car. Rene R. challenged us to use “colorful language” appropriately. And Guest Robb L. showed how both men and women should embrace feminism.

This week’s winners:
First timer: Luke E – evaluator
Table Topics: Tim S.
Evaluator: Mark S.
Most Improved: Luke E.
Best Speaker: Robb L.
