I just couldn’t wait till tomorrow to report on tonight’s meeting, which by the way is the last regular meeting of 2014.  It was a good one! 
Alex and Larry got us going with the invocation and joke. Followed by Sara as our toastmaster, who made sure we stayed on schedule. 
Michael was our Table topic master with the timely topic, “Holiday Tips”.  And  the winner is…… Sindy who made us  ooo and ahhh with the cutest story of the day she realized Santa Claus was her father.
The second half of our meeting was as terrific as any of the standouts I can remember.  3 Great speeches led off by August and his Ice Breaker, followed by Michelle’s on Drinking (Not what you think) and finally Florence’s talk on having an end of life directive.  Man oh man, they hit it out of the park.  The evaluations from Terry, Sam, and Dee were equally as good.  Too bad this was not an Area Contest, because we would be bringing home the gold.
Great Meeting and hope to see you all at our Christmas Party.

As far as I can remember, last nites theme “punch line” was a first for our club.  So many funny stories and jokes made it difficult to pick a TT winner, but Miguel stood out among us all.  Congratulations Miguel.
Sindy did a terrific job, as only Sindy can, in her TT evaluations with positive feedback and very meaningful suggestions for improvement.
Our tasty refreshments were generously prepared by Florence, Daniella, and Dee…..Thank you!
And finally, the best for last, 3 great speeches from Paul (why & how to drive a stick shift), Daniella (the importance of learning communication and leadership skills), and Ricardo (the true meaning of the holidays)…..wonderful.
For those that were not present, you were missed.
Have a Great week.
