Today, I had the pleasure of participating in a page in Toastmasters history. Word of the day was « Auspicious » chosen by our grammarian Linda Martella. The Toasmaster of the meeting was none other than the initiator of the club who took the lead with this pilot project, Davender Gupta.
Our Table Topic Master was the president Katy Morin who machine-gunned funny and interesting questions.
Saki Kajita our model speaker, member of the South Shore club accepted this challenge without hesitation. She is making history in the G Division to deliver an online speech! Well done.
Our club growth manager Tanya Hall was with us. She wanted to see this 1st virtual meeting in action. Our SAA, Gaétane Ferland was wise in listening to the instruction to wear a different hat. We can’t miss her! Add to that her smile and her cheerful voice.
Other roles: Nathalie Lucas – Interpretive Reading, Timer – Mounina Bouna Aly, Content Evaluator – Marna Murray, Delivery Evaluator -Frank Vigliotti, and our Secretary, Gabriel Duguay.
The meeting ended with announcements about Zoom training that will follow during the week. The club had a lot of praise for the innovation and the lead in setting the example for the other clubs. Let’s use the pandemic to perform despite everything! Stay tuned for our next virtual meeting.
Smile life is beautiful! Cheers!
