Tampines Changkat Toastmasters Club knows how to have fun! Does this statement seem familiar? Of course it does. It is because we proudly repeat it every time we live up to the statement. This Halloween meeting, we decided to party hard, scare everyone and do what we do best: SPEAK, LISTEN and LEAD!
The Thursday meeting in October that was dedicated to Halloween had a lot of special events. Apart from marvelous speeches by toastmasters such as Siju, Naveena and Priya among others, we got to see beautiful women and handsome men turn dreadfully scary, or in the case of Toastmaster Jaric, clearly more attractive. In addition, we had an interesting game segment as well as the Birthday celebration.
What started out as an evening with great food and continued into a speech-filled revelry and culminated into a photo-session. Enjoy our photos, dear reader and relive the moments in case you were fortunate to attend. Otherwise, just enjoy and remember to attend our next meeting!
Toastmasters is a club where we bond, have fun and learn. Themed meetings like Halloween help us understand the reason behind the celebration and the philosophy behind the make-up. In our pursuit of having fun, we leave as more knowledgeable people and more tolerant human beings. In spite of the terror being spread all across the world, this night, meant to make us look frightening, what with all the make-up, helped us become that much more tolerant towards others by exposing us people who come from different nations, worship different Gods and eat different food. While we present speeches at toastmasters, we make sure never to hurt the sentiments of other people. The speaker is an entertainer and the prime responsibility of the entertainer is never to hurt the audience. Oratory is power and with great power comes great responsibility!
