Hello all! Say hello to our new club officers!
In celebration of Toastmasters Awareness Month, Marine Parade Toastmasters Club is doing our Open House Chapter Meeting this March 21st!
Feel free to come, it is free of charge! Bring your friends and family and discover the speaker and the leader in you!
It was an evening of breaking the limits and giving up our limiting beliefs, as Marine Parade Toastmasters Club looked for new champions among a club-record-breaking number of contestants (10 for International Speech and 6 for Table Topics). Ladies dominated the contests and proved that they are the deadliest gender. We would also like to thank all organizers and appointment holders whose efforts made this event run smoothly, especially our organizing chair, Karolina Gwinner; contest chair, Anuradha Phanse and chief judge , Carolyn Widgette Street (yes, all ladies!) The winners would represent our club in the Area Level contest on March 8.

It is contest season once again and judges of our recently-held Humorous Speech and Speech Evaluation Contests have chosen a new generation of champions who would represent our club in these contests.
Everyone was in high spirits as they listen to four humorous speakers who have entertained them about singing frustrations, hair in the nose and armpits, lame jokes compilation, toilet jokes and dating tips from a toastmaster.
Salma from Anchorvale Toastmasters Club was the test speaker for the Speech Evaluation Contest and shared why she doesn’t want to be a millionaire. She was given million-dollar worth of compliments and recommendations by seven speech evaluators from MPTMC.
This event was made possible by all appointment holders especially Anu (Organizing Chair), Navin (Contest Chair) and Jenny (Chief Judge).
Thanks to everyone who have participated and let us all support our champions, Karolina Gwinner and Roshni Wadhwani in the coming Area-Level Contests on August 31!
Below are photos from the event and you may check out more photos in the gallery or in our Facebook Page.

These were just some of the stories and questions that were shared during our National-Day-Themed meeting. Members and guests have gamely answered these questions and shared their personal stories on their preferences.
Aside from the usual storytellers, Golden Gavel Pirates from Anchorvale Toastmasters club also graced the event and successfully got the Golden Gavel.
It was truly another memorable night , here are some photos from the night and you can see more in our photo gallery.
