Toast-masters of many hats
DONNING a number of hats symbolises the extensive and variety of subjects G'day Toastmasters enjoy at their meets.
The club members get together bi-monthly to learn to listen, think and speak, and make new friends.
Majory Hansen said they always had lots of fun.
"We offer each other lots of encouragement and support," she said.
"Recently we all were wearing different hats which symbolises the variety of assignments we get to enjoy.
Part of the program included Table Topics - an impromptu speaking assignment.
"You are given a subject to speak on for two minutes.
"There is no need for fear because we speak everyday on the telephone or when we meet a friend and that is in impromptu speaking.
"We do that without even thinking about it.
"There are speeches and everyone has stories to tell and at Toastmasters we can show you how to be a better communicator and storyteller."
