October at Word Weavers

I just wanted to take a moment to tell some of what has happened recently and what is planned for n October. We had another meeting on September 10th (you can read about it here). We also held our Fall Club Contest on September 24th (read about it here). Darryl’s HPL has entered a new phase and we’re seeing some results. There were a lot of community events in the past month, first there was the Newcomers Fest in Frankfurt, then there was the Information Evening at the U.S. Consulate in Frankfurt, and then the Stadtfest in Wiesbaden. We took a community approach to representing Toastmasters at these events with several members from Famous as well as Word Weavers and Laura from Esprit de Corps, be sure to have a look at the pictures at our Flickr group.  I’d like to give special thanks to our recent member Larissa, who represented the club at the Stadfest. Thank you to everyone who represented Word Weavers and Toastmasters at these events!

While the colors might be changing and the leaves are starting to fall, things are not slowing down for World Weavers.  We have regular meeting scheduled for October 8th with two speakers (as I write this there is one open speaking slot). The F3/F4 Area Contest will be held at Alt Wiesbaden on October 11th (registration starts at 9 am).  Volunteers would be greatly appreciated (not to mention our club participants would appreciate your support!). On October 22nd , Word Weavers will be celebrating the 90th Anniversary of Toastmasters. Michael S has generously offered to be our Toastmaster for this special event but he needs speakers (talk to Michael S, Patrizia, or Darryl about being part of this auspicious event. Speaking of the 90th Anniversary, Toastmasters has a promotion in honor their birthday, if you complete an educational award in October, you’ll get commemorative bummer sticker for your car that says “Breaking the Ice Since 1924”, so why if you’re close to getting your next award, why not schedule your next speech to take advantage of this promotion? The Division F Fall Contest will be held in Frieburg on October 25th, for anyone planning on attending please sign up no later than October 15th).

In November we have a regular meeting on November 12th and we’re celebrating Thanksgiving on November 26th. We also have the very first District 95 Conference happening right in the Rhein Main Area, (November 14-17)check out the conference website for more details.  

I did a video interview with Dirk Löffelbein at the D59 2014 Spring Conference in Krakow that you can see at the Toastmasters Podcast Europe website  (Episode 21 is out as well).  I also wrote an article at LinkedIn’s new online news source, Pulse, titled “Are You Using Toastmasters to Develop Your Communication And Leadership Skills?” The winning speech from this year’s World Championship of Public Speaking can now be seen, we’ve created a page at our website where you can see it along with a few winners from the past. You can also find links to our various Social Media profiles from our website.  

We’re looking forward to seeing you in the coming weeks.
