Happy Halloween Townsend Toastmasters! 🎃

Thank you, Meghan, for yesterday's fun Halloween themed meeting, being our Toastmaster, sharing the history of the origin of the holiday, and bringing chocolate treats for everyone!

Helen shared tips on how to purge our clutter the Kondo way 
Simon's speech was about the one thing he fears. 
Scott, Robert, Jason, & Simon - all participated in my Halloween themed table topics; 
Chris timed us precisely, while Robert checked our fillers and double-clutches; and Peppe gave the club thoughtful feedback. 

- Great meeting everyone !







Enjoy your All Hallows' Eve!
