Keyforce has Summer and Christmas Gala every year, enjoying special speeches, games and dinner outside from our regular meeting place.
This year for Summer Gala, President Mai Araki invited her previous boss who introduced her to Toastmasters.
He was a Toastmaster in US, and he shared with us through a special speech how “Courage” “Skill” “Style” makes successful leaders.
We had a hilarious evening at Furanzuya house in Omotesando on December 6th.
Starting with Toast by Area Director TM Maiko Fujiwara,
we had special speech, TM Makoto Ishiwata, title was “What would you like to try if you could do anything without danger or failure?” and we enjoyed two entertainments : Party Game, Ryota and music by Haruno, Yasunari, and Chihina.
Over 30 participants had a big laugh with special speech and were excited about party game and music all together.
It was joyful and happy Christmas Gala – Pictures show it!
Thank you all who took part in our 2016 summer gala for the great time, all the laughs and fun we had on August 2nd at style Minamiaoyama.
