Thurles Toastmaster’s penultimate meeting before the summer break took place on Wednesday 15th May.
It was a themed night called the ‘Mad Hatters Party’, with each member asked to wear a unique amusing hat to the event and hats off to all members with particular mention to John Kelly and Mary Stapleton who made a special effort on the night. Our Topicsmaster for the night was Mary Stapleton. All in attendance certainly had to put the thinking caps on, as the topics were of a jovial and trivial nature, which provided great enjoyment throughout the evening.
In attendance at the meeting, was a past member and a most welcomed guest, Mayor of Templemore Michael C Ryan. Michael delighted us by giving an impromptu speech, thanking the club for the help in developing his skills in public speaking which has greatly benefitted him in his public role on Templemore Town Council and has helped in all other areas of his life. Many thanks to Michael, for taking time out of his busy schedule to attend. While he will remain on the council, his tenure as chainholder will come to an end shortly and the club would sincerely like to wish him and his family all the best in the future.
Our next meeting will take place on Wednesday 29th May 2013 at 8pm in the Anner Hotel Thurles. If you would like further information you can contact Pat on 087-7730403. *Remember* You can follow us on Facebook at ‘Toastmaster Thurles’.
