A Very Toasty Christmas

If you missed our Christmas party, you missed out on a lot of fun. We had a great white elephant gift exchange. Jan brings the best stuff. Or maybe it's the worst stuff. No, it's definitely both! :)

And Kyle gave a very poignant toast to Michael and his fiancee Hannah.

Congratulations Michael!

Toasters has a tradition that the club buys a name badge for members when they complete their first Competent Communicator award. We followed that tradition today when Michael was given his name badge for completing his CC. And then Michael followed that by giving his first speech from an advanced manual.

Congratulations on completing your CC, Michael! We look forward to many more of your speeches!
