Yellowship Fellowship

I spent many happy years as a member of the Toastmasters' Organisation. Here we see preparations for a Competition Evening at the Charlestown NSW.Club.

Napkins at the ready! Soon the evening will begin!
The very welcome visitors  will start to enter in.
It's a Toastmasters' evening; there will be speeches said,
Prizes will be given and citations will be read.
Toastmasters is a speaking club, assisting those who're shy,
And toning-down the garrulous whose words never run dry!
It's said that Public Speaking is some peoples' greatest fear,
But with this group, assistance is tempered by good cheer.
These yellow napkins herald a time when we rejoice
And give thanks for an evening when all are in good voice.
Something else very yellow here:

Looks very snazzy with those yellow napkins. They sort of look like fans! And you certainly have a way with the written word! Thanks for stopping by at my MYM.

Do the yellow napkins help "loosen" the tongue and give great speeches?

As always your rhymes make me smile - love the yellow napkins - cheers!

Wow, the yellow napkins are a bright touch. I would imagine this would be a great event to attend. Me, I would hide in the corner as I have such a hard time speaking in front of a group.
