Theme and Word of the Day

Our theme for this meeting is “Space — the final frontier”. You are invited to honor the contribution that the exploration of space has made to our lives (including the ability to hold a Toastmasters meeting in real time involving members from all around the world, something that Ralph Smedley probably never imagined would be possible).

You can honor historical space travel (Sputnik, the Apollo program), future space travel (SpaceX), fictional space travel (Star Trek, Star Wars, Galaxy Quest, etc.), or anything else you like.

Consequently, our Word of the Day is the noun “exploration” (the action of traveling in or through an unfamiliar area in order to learn about it) or the verb “to explore”.

We have liftoff!
