Rainbow Toastmasters wishes everyone Happy Holidays in 2013! Because of the holidays, Rainbow Toastmasters will not meet on Thursday, Nov 28 or Thursday, Dec 26th.
What should you expect? In a 90-minute meeting, you will hear humorous and inspirational speeches, see people think on their feet with impromptu responses, and observe members giving one another praise and constructive feedback through evaluations. If you're new to Toastmasters and would like to know what a typical meeting is like, please see our Frequently Asked Questions page.

Congratulations to George and Alan for sweeping the Division D Speech Contests! George won the International Speech Contest and Alan won the Tall Tales Speech Contest at the Division D Speech Contest on April 23, 2013.
At the Division D Speech Contest, Rainbow Toastmasters was also recognized for renewing 75% of our members before the end of March. Congratulations to our Treasurer Ray for making this happen and winning us the March Madness Traveling Trophy to use in our upcoming meetings. Rainbow Toastmasters is making a big splash in Toastmaster history this year with over 50 active members, distinguished club status, and speech contest winners!
Rainbow Toastmasters celebrated Gay Pride 2013 with a special meeting devoted to riotous colors, themes of LGBT pride, and wall-to-wall celebration. A few daring members agreed to be photographed for our web site:
The only thing missing from this photo? You! Drop in some Thursday and join the fun!
Table Topics are a great way to sharpen your skills in public speaking, and they are a lot of fun as well. Come to our next Rainbow Toastmasters meeting and see for yourself and maybe someday soon you'll have a video like this on our web site, too!
