Open Night
An Open Night was held by Innisfree Toastmasters on Wednesday 15th February in the Sligo Park Hotel.
A number of guests came along on the night to see how the club works and how anyone can benefit from the skills we develop as Toastmasters,
Skills such as communication and leadership are learned by all members as they go through their Toastmasters journey.
Guests are welcome at all of our meetings.
And we’re back…
Our first meeting of 2017 was held on Wed 4th Jan and it was a fun filled night of speaking and indeed some reminiscing as Joss gave us a wonderful talk about “The song that takes you back” and we were treated to the song in question.
I look forward to this becoming a regular feature at our meetings as I am quite sure that all members will have a favourite song which takes them back.
Your Club President, Brian Fallon
Happy New Year
Happy New Year and welcome fellow Toastmasters to a brand new year. I hope this year brings all that you hope for.
The start of a new year can often be a time for goal setting and a nice quote that I read recently and which you might follow throughout the year is:
“Eat when you are hungry,
Drink when you are thirsty,
And sing and dance as often as you can”
I look forward to seeing you all again this year and to lots more exciting meetings.
Your Club President, Brian Fallon
