The Kwantlen Toastmasters meet every Wednesday from 5:30-7:00 pm, at Kwantlen Polytechnic University Surrey campus. On March 1, 2017 the KPU Surrey campus was closed in preparation for the upcoming KPU Surrey Open House, making the Kwantlen Toastmasters’ usual meeting room unavailable.
As a result, the Kwantlen Toastmasters took advantage of this opportunity and visited the White Rock Evening Edition Toastmasters.
Ten Kwantlen Toastmasters surprised the Evening Edition Toastmasters during their Evaluation contest and walked away with their club banners. It was a fun and exciting night full of educational speeches, winners and surprises.
District 21 Program Quality Director John Sherber made a surprise appearance during the raid as well. This banner raid opened a window for future joint club events.
On March 22 2017, nine Evening Edition Toastmasters stormed the Kwantlen Toastmasters’ Open House at the KPU library to reclaim their club banners in style. Kwantlen and Evening Edition Toastmasters will organize more activities in future.
With its educational and entertaining values, every club should do a banner raid!
When the door is closed, remember to look for a window.
