As Tom Horne mentioned this evening “at Toastmasters we learn through moments of enjoyment and tonight was no different. The following Toastmasters contributed to the learning:
Reinhardt Botha (taught us about service appreciation, Toast) Angie Kivido (taught us about time, Tiimer), Waven Korkie (taught us about verbal crutches, Um Ah Counter), Tom Horne (taught us about grammatical errors, Grammarian) and Belita von Steiger (taught us the meeting as a whole, as General Evaluator).

The Word of the Day was Inimitable, meaning: so good or unusual as to be impossible to copy.
In the words of fellow Toastmaster Belita von Steiger “Each speaker is inimitable and each person becomes a better version of themselves”
