Igniters / Miracles joint meeting a Great Success.

Igniters and Miracles enjoyed another evening of camaraderie. We held our second joint meeting of the year, lead by Michael. The roles were split between the two clubs with many of us stepping up to make this a great meeting.

Glen lead us in table topics with a twist. Each speaker was required to begin and end his/her speech with a word that began with the letter M.

We then had a short break where we had a chance to mix and mingle -- and of course we were able to eat more delicious food!

After our break we moved into the prepared speech portion of the meeting with two Igniters and one member of Miracles taking to the stage.

Our meeting ended with Michael from Igniters reminding us that no matter if we reached our personal best tonight, we showed up and gave it our best shot!

Our two clubs always have a fantastic evening together. I believe that we have similar feeling clubs and above all we are all very supportive.

Thanks Miracles for hosting a fantastic night of camaraderie once again. You can tell by the smiles on the faces of our members that it was a success.

Surprise DTM party for Glen!

On January 13th we held a surprise party for Glen to celebrate his DTM and it was indeed a complete surprise to him! Nandini and Diane had worked behind the scenes to invite fellow Toastmasters, and a fake agenda was sent out to look like a usual meeting. In fact, the whole agenda was roasts and toasts for Glen! People who could not attend sent messages that were read aloud to him. There was lots of food and a big chocolate cake with "Congrats Glen DTM on it. We took a group photo and had a photo frame for everyone to sign, so Glen will have a memento of the event for years to come.

Congratulations Glen on your hard work in achieving your goal!

-- Diane

Igniters are visited by Division J Governor.

We had a great meeting this week despite the inclement weather. We started out with an ice breaker speech from one of our newest members Michael. Michael did a great job for his first speech and we all know a lot more about him. Stephen delivered his competent communicator project #8. We then had Nandini pass out ribbons to Igniters who have completed their goals.

Division J Governor Grant paid us a visit this week. He delivered an inspirational speech about what winning really means. This table topics trophy is filled up with names, so it was presented to Igniters for posterity since our club won this trophy 4 times. Way to go Igniters!
