Area 52 Oakville Toastmasters Clubs are working together to make it easier for Oakville residents to find a Toastmasters Club on a night that works for you. We've recently launched www.oakvilletoastmastersclubs.org - a one page website with links to all the clubs and the nights of the week they hold their meetings. Check it out, and forward to a friend that might be interested.
Glen Abbey Toastmasters is starting it's 21st season on September 12, 2012. We're looking forward to welcoming back our members, and also look forward to visiting guests..
On June 23, 2012, Glen Abbey Toastmasters held its 20th Anniversary Charter Party - and what a party it was! We were happy to see so many current and past members (including 13 of Glen Abbey Toastmasters Past Presidents) join us to celebrate 20 years of successful toastmastering.
We had some great toasts, entertaining and humorous table topics, a warm hearted speech on being a Toastmaster, and then lots of dancing! From Billie Jean to Jai Ho to the Chicken Dance - we did it all. Our annual celebration was held at the Quality Suites Hotel in Oakville, and the food was outstanding including a selection of Chicken, Salmon or Roast Beef. Wine was supplied by Glen Abbey Toastmasters.
The 20th Anniversary Charter Party was a great opportunity for current members to connect with past members and to learn about the history of our club. A video presentation was prepared by Phyllis Inward which also provided great insite into our club history and successes. Our annual Charter party has become our way of celebrating our progress, our speakers, and our belief in Toastmasters. See the video here.
We hope to see you next year in June 2013.
