Southside Toastmasters’ 60th Anniversary

Southside Toastmasters’ 60th Anniversary

by Mahendran Mookkiah

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been 60 years since the Southside Toastmasters was
established in Jacksonville.

To commemorate this momentous occasion, the club decided to hold an open house on
Tuesday, June 20, 2023, at the IHOP located at 8400 Baymeadows Rd in Jacksonville, Florida.

To pay homage to the decade in which Southside Toastmasters was established, the club chose a 1960s theme.

The IHOP conference room was adorned with colorful decorations reminiscent of the
“flower power” era.

Members dressed up in 60s attire, including bell bottoms, tie-dye, dashikis, and even afros
and hippie hair.

A “60s soundtrack” played in the background to set the mood and welcome guests.

The celebration was especially meaningful as it attracted distinguished guests from
area, division, and district leadership.

It was a great demonstration of the value of being a Toastmaster.

Our club is open to all, and we have a diverse membership. We welcome anyone who
wants to join our journey to improve their leadership and communication skills.

Most importantly, we want you to have fun while doing it.
