Onsemi Toastmasters Meetings

These are the only photos I have of regular TM meetings with my first club, the Onsemi Toastmasters Club. And I'm not even in the photos. That's what happens when you're the only one bringing a camera. These meetings were usually held at the Rizal Conference room.

Today we had our farewell meeting for Dr. Noy. We had 3 guests from Meralco South: Area Gov. Bobbie Galang, Aldo and Edu. Breakfast was courtesy of Dr. Noy. Toastmaster of the Day was Maricel. Table Topics Master was Mic Tuason. Les was the Grammarian and Edu from Meralco gave the Timer's Report.

Bobbie gave a surprise roast-of-a-toast for Dr. Noy that sent him reeling from laughter.

In the business matters portion, Club President Gerry Ong and VP Education mentioned that a change in the club meeting's schedule is in the offing. Folks from RDC and some engineers were requesting a change because Wednesday's morning slot (7:00am) is much too early especially for those who stay back at the office every night.
