Armstrong Toastmasters celebrates 30 years

This year is also considered special as two long-time Toastmasters celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary.

December is a month of special anniversaries for Armstrong Toastmasters.

It has become a tradition to hold their final December meeting at Haru Sushi.

This year, they are celebrating two milestones: the Armstrong Toastmasters’ 30th Anniversary of helping regular people speak and lead; and the 25th wedding anniversary of two long-time Toastmasters, Robin and Sheila Procter who met at Toastmasters. They were married on Dec. 11, 1993.

The Armstrong Toastmasters were wrapping up 2018 with a celebration dinner in honor of The Procters and Armstrong Toastmasters. Robin and Sheila are currently the President and VP of Education and said they have stayed in Toastmasters because it is interesting, fun and allows them to give back.

Toastmasters offers opportunities to discover new strengths, discern your talents and design your own pathway using online tools and webinars available through www.toastmasters.org All learning is done at your own pace and new guests are always welcomed.

Armstrong Toastmasters meet Tuesdays evenings 7:30 – 9 p.m. at Heaton Place starting Jan. 8 (the last two meetings of January will be at a different location for renovations). For more information, visit their Facebook page or website at https://2645.toastmastersclubs.org for more information.

“Most Toastmasters clubs around the world hold open houses during the months of January and February,” said Vice President Pat Weninger. “You may not find love or romance in Toastmasters like some have, but you will certainly find a place to have fun and grow.”
