    Great job Ravoof & Well done Lagoon Toastmasters. I was one of the fortunate ones who watched the meeting in the afternoon minus the AED 25 guest fee. Watched the whole meeting in far off Canada. Good to see old faces – Loy, Jessie, MK Rajan & of course Ravoof.

    Well done Lagoon and keep the banner of Toastmasters flying.
