The ICE BREAKER is a Toastmaster's 1st speech. It is the one speech that every Toastmaster will always remember.


This page is dedicated to the The ICE BREAKERS of 2008.              


Alison Bochsler did her Ice Breaker on November 27, 2008.
She proudly discussed her family's centuries-long history in Ancaster, her close relationship with her brother, and her independent nature - especially when it came to getting dessert.
On November 6, 2008, James Ferris presented his Ice Breaker.
From "navy brat" to management consultant, he discussed the changes and challenges in his life. 


Shirley Derrick introduced herself through the Ice Breaker on October 30, 2008.
Her first speech described her family's journey from Liverpool to Dundas.
 Cam Goede (pictured during the Table Topics Contest) presented his 1st speech - the Ice Breaker - on October 16.
His talk on "vision, challenges, and destiny" was entertaining and inspirational.
Certainly, Cam outlined the "power of 3" - which was the theme of the evening.
Thank you, Cam.


 Yolanda Miller also presented her Ice Breaker on October 9.
She captivated us with her personal experiences and vision on life's challenges.
Well done, Yolanda!


Patrice Bernard (pictured during presenting Sage Advice) was our first new 2008 member to perform her Ice Breaker, September 25.
She described her learning experiences through three career paths with the best yet to come!
