We hosted our last Toastmasters meeting for 2019 in the shaded parklands of the Subiaco Arts Centre Park.
Along with a split round of Christmas themed table topics, everyone spoke on the value that belonging to the club brought to them in 2019, set amongst a delicious light breakfast and oodles of sunshine and smiles.
We had some old friends attend, such as our former president Damian, along with former members James and Liz.
