At the Isaac Davis Club, members not only benefit from the opportunity to give many speeches throughout the year, but they also gain from the sage knowledge that only a seasoned Toastmaster can offer.

3. PRUDENTIAL PILBRIMS TURKEY DRIVE: Prudential Stephan Realtors realize that the holidays can be a difficult time for many families. In an effort to help those in need, we are participating in the Greater Boston Food Bank Turkey Drive 2012. Donating is a quick and easy way to help needy families. Use the link for the website provided to donate to our Turkey Drive Team. Just $17 provides a 12 - 14 lb. turkey to a family that is struggling this holiday season.

4. HAVING A BAD DAY? IT'S OK TODAY: Today is Have a Bad Day Day ... no joke. Believe it or not, Have a Bad Day Day was created to encourage us to wish people to have a bad day. The intent is to have sales people stop saying to their customers "have a good day," and replace it with "have a bad day."
