Festival Fun 2012

August 16 - 19, 2012
August 19, 2012
Valley Town Toastmasters enjoyed an outstanding performance at its major annual show case event - the Cactus Festival.
Our Parade Master, Jonathan Spiegel, arranged support from our neighbouring Toastmaster clubs to achieve a record turnout for the Cactus Festival Parade on Thursday.
There were 33 Toastmasters, friends and family marching in our Yellow & Blue colours with matching umbrellas and balloons.
This turnout was more than double our previous record of two years ago.
Along the 2.2 kilometre route, we passed out more than 400 information cards and we had received our first inquiry via "text" even before we finished the parade.
As previously published in the Ancaster and Dundas weekly newspapers, the Cactus Festival audience was treated to the much anticipated return of the "Travelling Toaster", driven by its creator, Kenrick Chin.
Afterward, from Friday through Sunday, our team of Toastmasters provided information to interested members of the public.
As a result, Valley Town Toastmasters and other local clubs can look forward to seeing more guests at their upcoming meetings.
Thank you, everyone, for your support and good wishes.
Toastmaster Proud!
Thank you to our community of Toastmasters, friends and family for supporting us at both the parade and pavilion!
