Hola Fellow Toastmasters,
This email would have reached you sooner but I had a slight interruption in SCE service.  Apparently,  a telephone pole was knocked down at 5am creating a power outage for most of the day.
Hope it wasn’t Ricardo. Just kidding…we miss you Ricky.

Well we had another transforming evening with Lucille leading the way as our honorable Toastmaster.  Daniella was inspiring in her invocation.   Alex as our Table Topic Master was flawless, asking  great, thoughtful questions on the theme “Freedom”, while adding a twist in the format with speakers and evaluators.  Sindy our TT evaluator was……well what would you expect from an experienced Toastmaster.  Giving useful and creative feedback that we could all use to help us on our way to the world stage!

Dee gave us a wonderful speech on the history of Ice Cream.  Really fascinating.

The highlight of the evening was Brian and his “Ice Breaker”.  I’m still laughing about the wood chuck chuck thing.  Wish I would have thought of that, but I can’t say it.

There will be no officer meeting this week as planned.  We will reschedule for last week of January.
Have a Great Week.


  1. Nice to have Big attendance at our Monday meeting, we are getting back to normal.
    Our Table Topic Master Alex, did a terrific job with the theme, “freedom". It was fun to hear everyone’s thoughts, and our Lucille took the prize as the best Topic Speaker.
    Our 3 speakers for the night were Brian, Dee, and Byron . All were entertaining, informative and inspirational.
    Brian with his icebreaker took the prize of best speaker.
    Just a reminder about the Lace training, again on Saturday 24th at Cal State LA. We had 4 officers attending last Saturday at chapman U. Orange. Please make plans to attend this meeting.
    Have a Great Week.

    1. Good training for us to get new ideas. Here is the Jan 24 schedule.
