Several years ago, there was a TV sitcom called Cheers. A group of regulars got together at a local Boston bar of that name.
Perhaps you may have seen it and remember its theme song, a part of which was:
Sometimes you want to go
where everybody knows your name.
And they’re always glad you came.
We are far from Boston and are certainly not a bar, but we at Gelfand Good Morning Toastmasters are a local gathering place. And like the gang at Cheers, everybody knows your name, and when you attend a meeting, we are always glad you came.
We are more than just a club; more than just a learning experience; more than a next speech or manual to finish; more than a Saturday morning self-imposed obligation, a role to fill or a last-minute joke.
We are Gelfand Toastmasters. A caring, supportive, helpful, understanding, cohesive group of individuals who share the same Toastmaster goals, aspirations, frustrations, humor and love of a good story.
We come from many different countries, cities, towns, and villages, but we come together for a common goal.
We come from different walks of life, occupations and jobs, or we are students; but we come together for a common goal.
We are of widely different ages, but we share the same goals.
I have visited many other clubs over the years only to reinforce my belief that we are one of the best. It is due to our commitment to attend meetings regularly, our diversity, and for all the attributes stated above.
Remember. When you attend a meeting, we are always glad you came.
