From Heidi Ashley-Hacker, President Riverside Communicators
Forty members and guests from Riverside Communicators based in Twickenham met at the Eel Pie pub on historic Church Steet for a Table Topics Extravaganza to celebrate 90 years of Toastmasters International.
Four Topicsmasters took turn to facilitate a Table Topics sessions with unique themes including: Eel Pie and other edible delicacies; Evolve the Story (involving throwing a ball between members to select the next speaker); Describe the use of unusual objects; and lastly, describe the meaning and use of Old English Words. Everyone present completed a table topic including the first time guests!
It was an excellent evening with plenty of time for socialising. President Heidi Ashley-Hacker proposed a Toast to Ralph C. Smedley the founder of Toastmasters and everyone raised their glass in remembrance of him and in celebration of his legacy. Thank you to all who came and to Marion Sherriffs, President of West London Speakers who visited us for the first time. (pictured L to R: Heidi, Marion)
