Our History

history-pg-imgIn 1992 six people attended a meeting sponsored by Susan Niven, (Division Governor); and Terry Clark. A demonstration Toastmaster meeting was presented by Toastmaster Dr Irene Evens, (District 21 Governor); Floyd Kinchen, and Geraldine Warnke. Susan Niven of the Morning Side Toastmasters Club of Coquitlam became our mentor and sponsor.

The Club met at the ABC Family Restaurant until March 15, 1993. By April 1993, we reached “Charter Strength” with 20 members. We moved to the Pacific Inn Hotel May 1993. We celebrated our Charter Status on June 15, 1993, with the theme “The Early Bird Gets The Word”! In January 1995 we moved back to the ABC Family Restaurant, White Rock.

Today, Early Edition continues to grow with an average of membership 25 – 30 and has achieved Top 10 BC Club status. Presently we meet at The Turnbull Gallery, South Surrey Recreation Centre -14601 20th Ave, Surrey, BC every Monday morning from 6:55 am to 8:30 am
