Have a Holly Jolly Christmas

It’s that time of year again, the trees have gone up, lines at stores are a little bit longer, and radio stations are playing Christmas music, literally 24\7.

Christmas time is officially upon us.  However, it wouldn’t be Christmas without our First Oakville Toastmasters Christmas Party.

Last Thursday First Oakville Toastmasters brought their Christmas Cheer to O’Finns Irish Temper and it was definitely not a Silent Night.  It was a Christmas Party of epic proportions full of reindeer games, Table Topics, door prizes, a delicious 3 course meal and of course of a visit from the man himself, SANTA CLAUS.  We also collected food items to donate to a local food bank.

A big thank you to the 2017 Christmas Party Committee:

Cheryl Etherington, Linda Rossi, Alonso Mendizabal, Rebecca Valero, Tanouja Rama, John Smissen and of course our Chair, Eric Bastien.  Congratulations on a festive event.

Many thanks to Peter West for documenting our Christmas Cheer.  He managed to capture all the excitement and left us wishing we could do it all over again.  Be sure to check out the pictures here.

First Oakville Toastmasters is a group of fun-loving, professional individuals from diverse backgrounds who take the Toastmasters educational program and our growth seriously.  We have been supporting and developing each other for over 60 years and as you can see, we have a holly jolly great time while doing it!

Our regular meetings will resume on January 4th, 2017 at the Knights of Columbus Hall 1494 Wallace Road.  Until then, have yourself a Merry Christmas.
