Feeling the Christmas ‘withdrawal symptoms’? Fret not! Our very own Media Team is here to take you down memory lane…
On Tuesday last week (20th December), NUS Toastmasters Club held the annual, highly anticipated ‘Christmas Themed Chapter Meeting’. For some members it is the first of many more exciting themed meetings to come; for others it is an event that has found a special place in their hearts over the years. Regardless of which category you fall into, the Christmas Themed Meeting this year has been an evening of celebration and camaraderie.
The festive mood this year was nothing short of infectious, thanks in no small part to the Christmas decorations that were painstakingly put up by the event organisers (kudos to you, Chris, Kelly and Zhang Ying!). Deck the halls with boughs of holly, anyone?
But what is a themed meeting without themed snacks? The Christmas Themed Meeting also featured a spread of classic Christmas snacks such as cupcakes, brownies and even a log cake! (Let’s keep our fingers crossed for some turkey next year…)
After filling their bellies with sugary treats and drinks, our members adjourned to the meeting room to enjoy the games and activities planned by the organisers. With Chris’s charm and wit, it did not take long for them to snap out of their food-induced coma and into an enthusiastic mood. The main activity for the night was a game whereby members were split into groups, with each group having to act out (a la charades) a particularly Christmas-y sentence. For example, the sentence could be as follows: The children huddled around the fireplace with cookies and milk – anxiously waiting for Santa to appear. It was an activity that made for numerous moments which had the room filled with peals of laughter.
Special thanks once again to our members Chris, Kelly and Zhang Ying for selflessly shouldering the preparations. Without their efforts and foresight in planning, this unforgettable get-together session would not have been as successful as it was.
