Meeting Theme Toastmasters' Christmas Party
Christmas is almost upon us, and apart from the overindulgence of alcohol and food, it also signifies the importance of unity and togetherness. So, with that in mind, I hope that you are looking forward to our Christmas party next week! There will be speeches (of course), table topics (naturally), evaluations (duh!), and also games and surprises galore, in store for you! As usual, there will be the opportunity to exchange gifts on the night. We can set the cost at €10, but obviously, if you feel like spending more, please feel free to do so!
See you there!
Who has been naughty or nice?
See you there,
Santa Em
