Winnipeg Toastmasters Blossom

The theme of the meeting was *Blossom* and blossom we did.  Our Toastmaster Dianne reminded us of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s words, “Thought is the blossom, language the bud, and action is the fruit behind it”. 

We were challenged to use sagacious as the word of the day and the group rose to the challenge - being wise, shrewd, astute and discerning in thought, action and words. 
Andrea was the first speaker and asked us “Will you be younger next year?” She presented us with ways to turn off or prevent decay in our bodies and keep blossoming. 

Debb followed with her contest-winning speech “Shine”.  She related her experience in holding back in life until she realized that the world needs our light, so SHINE.
The group gave Debb some encouraging and insightful feedback on ways she can blossom and shine even more at the Division contest. 

Our Winnipeg Toastmasters Club will be hosting the Area 12 contest on Tuesday, April 19th at 7 pm in Room 111 St. John’s College.  Everyone is welcome to come hear the inspirational speeches, network and make new friends.
