Fellow Toastmasters Past and Present,
Last night we have 18 members and guests. We have a wonderful, energetic and productive meeting.
Our table topic questions were fun, delicious refreshment was too much, 3 prepared speeches were interesting, evaluation were educational. 2 guests joined at the end. What a good night and good team!
Daniel did an extraordinary job as table topic master. Although it was Daniel's first time, he was well prepared, poised, calm. He presented statistic number and asked wonderful questions on phubbing.
Florence, glad to see she came back from took care of her aged dog, gave evaluation to every Table topic speakers on the greeting, gestures and voice variations. Very NICE!
Refreshment were provided by Daniela, Sindy, Dee and Juju. Valley Speakers know how to enjoy the break time!
Three prepared speakers were Alex, Michelle and Joan. Alex's speech was the CC manual #4 how to say it. I learned the Spanish culture and elotus for corn. Michelle's speech was the CC manual #6 - Voice Variation. She described the Chinese New Year, the color, the noise, the prosperity with gestures, crops and wonderful voices. Joan's speech was about cowboy poetry. She shared the book from her friend, recited the poem with rhyme. I can picture the blue sky, green prairie and the wild wild west....
Al evaluations, 3 prepared speeches, 3 thoughtful evaluations with suggestions. Meeting adjourned on time and two visitors, Benjamin and Anthony paid to become members after the meeting.
Three honored guests were Marlin, our area governor, Christion and Chris Ngo. Both Chris were brave and delivered their first table topic speech. Good job!
BIG THANKS to Marlin who also evaluated the speech made by Michelle. She also mentioned to Juju about preparing the Spring Area Speech Contest so the biggest club could participate in the event. We will discuss this issue with president and make decision.
