Toastmasters celebrate 20 witty years

SPEAKEASY Toastmasters president Jerry Mulcahy welcomed a group of more than 100 people, including some distinguished visitors, recently to an evening of celebration, reminiscence and fun in honour of the club's 20th anniversary.

Toastmaster for the night Michael Cronin humorously directed the course of the evening which included some speeches and some topics around the centrepiece of a very enjoyable meal provided by the Hibernian Hotel and music provided by none other than Stanley Notte a toastmaster himself from Glanmire Toastmaster Club.

Among the distinguished guests was Mr Tom Cronin, a representative of Mallow Credit Union who generously supports the Speakeasy Schools Contest and the Mayor of Mallow, Cllr Noel O'Connor.

The mayor gave a warm and witty address, complimenting the club in particular on their commitment to the community through the creation of the schools contest and the creation of the Cope Foundation Nice and Easy Club, by President Jerry Mulcahy.

It was fitting on the night that all 20 club presidents were honoured with a commemorative plaque.

Speakeasy Toastmasters meets every second Thursday in the Hibernian Hotel with the next series of meetings at 8pm on April 4, April 18, May 2, May16 and May30. Non members are most welcome and are never asked to speak.
