Own the Moment (OTM) Oakville Toastmasters held a very successful, multi-purpose, and fun-filled meeting event on December 17th. It was a fitting ending to a challenging year, ever since OTM migrated seamlessly to the virtual format since March 2020. Truly, it was a night to remember down the road for the OTM history book. The Meeting theme was: RESILIENCE.
The Meeting Agenda had all the aspects of a regular meeting plus more, namely Virtual Toast, Guest Speaker/Author Darline Noel (IPC Toastmasters), Table Topics, Trivia, Games, Awards, etc. OTM recognized the educational achievements of the members, including the DTMs earned by past Area Directors Sasha-Li Chinloy and Katia Miroplskaia.
Tom Adams PEng, Halton Region Councillor, and Oakville Ward 6 Councillor was on hand to bring encouragement and greetings from the Town of Oakville. Many Toastmasters District 86 DEC Leaders (Division Governor / Division Director / Area Director) were in attendance: Brahm Memone DTM, Lou Mulligan DTM, Aurie Contosta DTM, Hilgay Beckles DTM, Albert Chang DTM, and Suzanne Rondeau ACG. The ongoing support of many Guests (Toastmasters as well as non-Toastmasters) that came from the surrounding communities is greatly appreciated.
