The theme of the evening was “I am the wisest man alive for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing.” – Plato, The Republic. The word of the day for the Johannesburg Toastmasters Club Meeting held on the 4th of June 2014 was “Zowie” as proposed by Luther Feros.
Luther Feros provided the toast of the day “Sports Fraternity”. This was closely followed by a toast to Toastmasters International by JP Gernaat.
