Happy Charterversary 2019-2020
An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today,
The memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow!
Here are clubs that have shared their Happy Charterversary celebrations!
Waco Texas Toasters – Club 5529749, Charter date: June 1, 2016
Waco Texas Toasters Turn 3 – The celebration focused on FOOD, Fun and Fellowship
Our theme was: Celebration and our Word of the day was: Transmogrify – To Transform some other person or thing as if by magic.
That truly describes the transformations I have seen take place over the last three years as our club and each of its members have transformed and grown. Our President Tina S. kicked off the meeting and Linda B. (Last Year’s President) served as our toastmaster for the day, starting us off with a rousing cheer. Malinda A. was presented her Competent Leader Certificate. Each of the three speeches presented where accompanied with power point presentations. 3 club member accomplishments were recognized. Janice G. recently received her Master’s Degree, Tiffany P received her Associates Degree and Melanie S recently received a promotion at work to Supervisor. Table Topics Master Jathon W. continued the celebration theme with questioned focused on making the impossible- Possible. Waco Texas Toasters is a Great Club, filled with Great Members who know how to celebrate.

Happy Charterversary to Off the Cuff 4354! Greg welcomed members and four guests to our potluck dinner and meeting with the theme “All Things Summer.” Tracy and Bill E. sang “Summer Nights,” and President Bill S. invited members to sign our congratulatory Charterversary letter. Funmaster Fursey led the cheers with YES, HOMERUN, and FIREWORKS variations as members shared favorite summertime memories. Table Topics Master Mike W. and Toastmaster Tracy continued the summertime theme. Each speech in this club is truly off the cuff. The Toastmaster distributes the topics, and speakers have five minutes to prepare! Speakers Liz, Greg, Reggie C., and Reggie M. delivered outstanding speeches, followed by insightful evaluations. Posture Monitor Susan reminded us that we must be mindful of our body language. What a great way to spend Summer Nights!
