Speak To Inspire TM Club Picnic

Summer Picnic Event Brings Out Members From Other Clubs

Speak to Inspire TM Picnic

What a fantastic picnic event we had Wednesday August 2nd at noon at Chingacousy Park. This is a regular meeting time for Speak to Inspire Toastmasters Club located in the Centre for Education & Training, Brampton East campus, 263 Queen St East Unit 14, in Brampton. This is a great public noon hour club that gets a lot of newcomers to Canada in the center wanting to improve their communication and language skills. 

The picnic was a great success as you can see with all the lovely food that everyone brought. Thank you for all for your generous contributions. This blog is to not just encourage other clubs but to 'challenge' othere clubs to take advantage of the free facilities around your community and invite other club members in the area like we did to make it a fantastic area event. We had the pleasure of having our Area 34 Director Cindy Tate, Division B Director Maheeza Mohamed, D86 Public Relations Manager Matthew Ogbulafor and Area 33 Director and club member Patricia James. I'd also like to thank members from Rogers TM and City of Brampton TM for coming out. 

On Aug 9th from 12-1pm we will be having a Tall Tales Contest to warm us up for the Humourous Speech and Table Topics Contest and we have been able to recruit outside members from our area to come out and help out our small club. If interested in coming out for a visit please contact Tuula Redditt.

Region of Peel Open House

PicMonkey Collage

The theme was “Gratitude” and featured two amazing speakers: Region of Peel member and 2016 Humorous District winner, Patricia Williams, and Keynote speaker, Elaine Barnes. 

Patricia spoke about her journey and the benefits of Toastmasters and how it not only helped her to win the Humorous Speech Contest but also helped her confidence (both at work and in her everyday life) and has inspired her to ‘want’ to do her best. Also, a member of the Region of Peel’s Executive Leadership Team, Janette Smith, gave greetings to attendees.

Elaine Barnes spoke of the benefits of Toastmasters within the correctional institutions as well as her struggles while working within corrections facilities. It was an eye opener for many as Elaine described the daily lifestyle of an inmate and volunteers.

There were some laughs and questions and all seemed to enjoy the event. After the event, attendees had a meet and greet with the speakers while enjoying great food as well as stopping by the information desk. There were magazines as well as various informational items about Toastmasters.

The event attracted over 50 people. It was a great turnout with great food and provided for a greatopportunity for many staff and visitors to learn about Toastmasters.

I (Event & Committee Chair ) would like to thank the committee members (Asha Hassan, Ben Yee, Eucharia Igwe, Anila Lalani, Rosanna Bullock and Leslie Benfield) for all of their hard work. I would also like to thank Paul Lewkowicz, Puneet Parhar, Bill Nicholson and Agnes D’Souza who volunteered their time to help with the event.
