Hello, everyone! I am TM I, I was the Toastmaster of the day at #612 meeting and I will report the second meeting of this year.
This meeting was a big event because this was the joint meeting with Minato-Mirai Toastmasters Club. Minato-Mirai Toastmasters Club is our sister club. We make a long standing relationship with this club. So this event was special for us. We had a lot of participants and guests. The atmosphere was enthusiastic and cheerful from the beginning. The theme of the meeting was “ We love Yokohama”. I asked members’ thoughts about Yokohama beforehand. Because the home grounds of our clubs are here, Yokohama! Yes, I heard a lot of their interesting and sweet memories, recommended places + restaurants, playing spots, whatever!
Additionally, at the Table Topic Session, TM N asked questions regarding Yokohama from various dimensions. Their speeches were so unique with lots of laughs. Don’t miss TM T from Minato-Mirai’s joke session. Coincidentally he took the third joke master at the Joint meeting with Yokohama Toastmasters. He must be destined to be a Joke Master when he was with us!!
At the main session, prepared speeches were well prepared and planned out. We could not help but be astonished at their styles, deliveries and contents as well. Likewise the evaluators were equally up to providing high quality evaluation sessions. The meeting was called to order by the President of Minato-Mirai TMC and adjourned by the President of Yokohama TMC. All support roles were taken by members of both clubs. It was really harmonious!
I am sure this joint meeting of two clubs was a great success as the word of the day “collaboration, collaborative and collaborate” indicated. Our collaboration would continue after the meeting…well, not just at the drinking party!
