Today's Meeting Theme: The Gift of an Ordinary Day. Our Toastmaster of the Day, Ann, decorated our tables to make our ordinary meeting just a little more special. She had us pondering such things as "Where are the pictures of ordinary days?" and "The ordinary days are the ones that stick out the most."

David gave an insightful speech about the home buying process, and Angie provided a thoughtful speech evaluation. Renee asked hilarious Table Topics questions. The most memorable answer came from JoAnn, when she told us about her day on a garbage truck as a rat. 🤣

We meet every Thursday morning at 8am at WayPoint Church. We hope to see you next week!

Yesterday's meeting was an ADVENTURE! Nicole was Toastmaster of the Day for the first time, and she was amazing. William blessed us with a speech about Pow Wows. It was nice to see our Club President, Renee, back after another tour of the Honor Flight.

The favorite Table Topics question of the day was,"Tell us about the week you spent at Vegan Land." David had the room rolling with laughter with his answer.

Come join our shenanigans next Thursday at 8am at WayPoint Church.

Today's meeting was whimsical and so much fun! The meeting theme was "Permission to Play" and everyone had the chance to blow bubbles and play with playdoh because sometimes you need to take a break from being a serious adult. Great speech by Frank! We loved that he dressed up to match his speech about forestry. He ended it with the perfect pun: May the Forest Be With You. 🤣

Come join us next Thursday morning at 8am at WayPoint Church. Guests are encouraged to attend!

When the meeting theme (The Chatterbox Within), the Word of the Day "Clutter," and the speech "Plant Killer or Life Lesson" all coordinate, there is a special magic that brings the meeting to a whole new level of fun and amazement. We were blessed with four guests today: Mark, Liz, Frank, and Adison. It was so great to see them, and they all provided excellent answers to our improv portion of the meeting called "Table Topics."

Christina brought in a Venus Fly Trap Akai Ryu (Red Dragon) plant as a captivating prop to prove that when you are down about something in your life not going as planned, just think of this slightly sad looking goth plant so you remember not to lose hope. Sometimes the environment isn't ready yet, or the gardener (aka: you) needs to do some growing first, or maybe the plant (problem, dream, desire) needs the right nutrients and some time.

We hope to see you next week at 8am Thursday morning at Way Point Church for more fun.

Such a fun meeting this morning with the theme "Aha Moments!" We shared a wonderful hour with three guests, Adison, Lisa, and Mark. Angie gave an informative speech about resumes, and Dee gave us some challenging Table Topics Questions to keep our improv skills in top shape. Come see us next week at 8am at Waypoint Church.

We had an enjoyable time today at the Livable Community Fair! We met a lot of new people, and we can't wait for them to join us at future meetings. Some of our Toastmasters are involved in other organizations, such as the Rotary Club of Gig Harbor North and the KP Citizens Against Crime. We meet every Thursday morning at 8am at Waypoint Church. Guests are encouraged to attend, and we don't make you participate if you don't want to. 😉

Today's meeting was inspiring! Dee did a great job running the meeting with the theme "The other Washington - So much to experience." Delightful Table Topics by Nicole. William gave an amazing speech entitled, "Myth and Legends of the Lakota People" He dressed up, spoke in his Native Tongue, brought sage, and even played a short song on the flute that came from his heart. He has such a way with storytelling that we felt like we were immersed in his story realm.

We had an honored guest today, Adison Richards for State Rep. Thank you for visiting us, and we look forward to seeing you again!

Come visit us next Thursday morning at 8am at Waypoint Church in Gig Harbor. Don't forget: we will have a booth at the Key Peninsula Civic Center's Livable Community Fair this Saturday inside the gym.

Wonderful meeting this morning! Esteemed guest, Area Director, Joanna, joined us. It's always great to see her!

Join us next Thursday at 8am as we resume our normal, fun shenanigans at WayPoint Church.

What an excellent meeting today! The meeting theme was "Be Excellent While You Wait" Our Speaker, William, not only brought everyone a rose to remind us that every life has its thorns, but if you look up you will soon bloom again, but he also performed a song on his saxophone for us. Such a treat! You never know what you'll get when you attend one of our weekly meetings.

We also enjoyed two wonderful guests, Nicole and Mrs. Shirley. We hope to see you both again soon.

Great day of the group coming together and supporting and inspiring! Ann Campy reminded us how important it is to dream and dream big, David Smith as our Toastmaster got us thinking out our future and preparing, Brother William ensured that we tapped into our Irish souls and Angie and Frank inspired us with their creativity and humor. Join us next Thursday at 0800 at Waypoint Church and see what Toastmasters is all about!!

What an excellent meeting this morning! Our Meeting theme was "Go Fly a Kite!" Angie gave a fantastic speech, which included the skill of how to deal with hecklers. (Sometimes being a Toastmaster means you have to role play!) All around it was a fun meeting. Our Toastmaster of the day even decorated the room with kites to bring extra cheer to the club.

We always have a great time, and we'd love to see you at our next meeting at Waypoint Church at 8-9am Thursday morning. We hope to see you there!

Fall Leaves was our theme for today at the Center of the Universe! Maria did a wonderful job as Toastmaster and Ann gave a vivid and fun speech about how Kitchen Witches have wreaked havoc on her family's cooking for over 100 years! Didn't seem to affect the yummy homemade treats she brought In today thank goodness. Thanks Ann!

Fall brings hygge (hoog-uh) and new beginnings! If you're someone looking for hygge, friendship and a wonderful opportunity to learn something new, come join us at 8am on Thursdays at the WayPoint Church on the KP!

Today's meeting theme was aptly deemed "Feels a bit like Fall." 🍁🍂🌻 The tables were decorated with autumn colored leaves and flickering candles. Brand new member, Thunder, gave an encouraging speech about "Falling Forward." William demonstrated his excellent improv skills by using the decorative leaves as center pieces to his Table Topics questions. It was a magical meeting. We hope to see you next Thursday at Waypoint Church at 8am. oxox

Every Toastmaster’s Journey Begins With A Single Speech

The world needs leaders. Leaders head families, coach teams, run businesses and mentor others. These leaders must not only accomplish, they must communicate. By regularly giving speeches, gaining feedback, leading teams and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program. Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership.
