Galway Toastmasters will mark its 25th anniversary next week and to mark the occasion an anniversary meeting and celebration will be held on February 28 at 8:30pm in the Menlo Park Hotel. There will also be presentation of Toastmasters’ highest achievement to a local member.
The evening will be a mix of a regular meeting for the first hour and a half or so - with talks, stories and memories shared - and food, refreshments and chat with members, guests and former members for the second part. There will also be the presentation of a Distinguished Toastmaster Award (DTM ) to one of our longest serving members.
This is the highest level of achievement in Toastmasters and is the first member of Galway Toastmasters to achieve this level while in the club, and indeed the first from a Connacht Club. This achievement includeS giving over fifty prepared speeches along with many leadership projects.
