It hardly seems possible that last night was our final meeting of this session of First Oakville Toastmasters. We’ll reconvene this September with a whole new executive and new goals and tons of fun.
Speaking of fun, the First Oakville Toastmaster Summer Party is coming in a few weeks and we expect to see you there.
At last night’s A+ General Evaluator rated meeting we had three absolutely fabulous speakers (and all the videos including evaluations are available exclusively to our members via DropBox) and three equally terrific evaluations.
Two of our speakers, Zulma Garcia (our incoming VP of Education) completed her 10th speech and has now achieved her Competent Toastmaster designation.
Zulma’s speech came as a surprise to her son Juan who was a guest as her speech was all about her love for Juan who is going away to university in British Columbia after the summer.
Another of our up-and-coming speakers John Boateng also did his 10th speech and he too has achieved his Competent Toastmaster designation with his excellent speech on reaching our goals. (In Photo above: (left to right) Zulma, Katherine Ryell our VP of Education and John.)
But the good times didn’t end there. Two of our members, Adrian Scott (our club president) and Mark Molder (our incoming VP of Membership) both received their Competent Leader designations. (In Photo: (left to right) Mark, Katherine and Adrian.)
And for the second time in a row, Toastmaster John Smissen was named Toastmaster of the Year. This prestigious award is based on an accumulation of points for designated achievements throughout the Toastmaster season. Congratulations to John for this well-deserved award.

Overall an amazing year capped by a great night which ended for many at a local bar where the festivities continued for an hour or so.
