Malala Yousafzai, the youngest Nobel Prize laureate said “One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world. Did you know that one Toastmaster, one District Leader, one Facebook post and one telephone conference can rejuvenate a Toastmaster club?
In the fall of 2016, Porcupine Toastmasters had only one member, Yvan Tremblay who posted to Facebook asking for help to save the Toastmaster club in Timmins. Told 3 former members were required and a total of 8 by April 1st 2017 the last man standing found the will to make it happen.
With much determination the club grew in diversity with a mix of new and former members and enthusiasm spilled out across Area 2 in Northern Ontario. The former Porcupine members were joined by 2 Toastmasters from Southern Ontario and 1 from the south of Area 2. By June 30, 2017 the club was 8 members strong, ready to start working as a team for an exciting 2017/2018 year.
