Halloween theme meetingThis is a featured page

Good Witch Tricia GallucciClub President Pam MertzCapital Toastmasters Club #6518 ran a Halloween themed meeting on 10/28/08. The Toastmaster dressed as a witch, and we had a wickedly good time.

Club Pres (Pam) wore antennas, TableTopics master prepared Halloween related questions, which everyone loved. We had a little history lesson on how Halloween started, where some of the customs started, and idea of trick or treat has changed over the years. One person who does not celebrate Halloween shared why, and gave a little lesson on that too.


We had three guests, who all participated in Table Topics, and had a good time. During break, we enjoyed a Halloween cake, decked out with little tombstones, made and decorated by our Toastmaster, Good Witch Tricia. It was a lot of fun, people got into the spirit,and it was a great way to showcase to guests how much fun Toastmaster club meetings can be. It was great.


Other ideas...

Costumes: Everybody can dress up in a special costume...if it relates to TM, even better: Search Google for 'Toastmasters Halloween' to see websites showing pictures of people with speech-related costumes, e.g. the post-it man who takes notes at the meeting.

Speeches: all participants could start in the Storytelling manual and tell ghost stories.
There could be a mini humorous or tall-tale speech contest where everybody tells their funniest Halloween story.

Table Topics could be "speech or treat", i.e. everybody brings their favorite treats and then people either give a speech or give a treat. Table Topics could also be everybody answering the question "which will be the favorite costume of trick-or-treaters this year and why".

Word of the day can be found by searching Google for 'word of the day halloween'. You'll find words like bonfire/ghosts/mask/...

Environment: Black/orange decorations, food, and Twilight Zone music in the background would set the atmosphere.
