Fellow Toastmasters,

Last night was a memorable one. Our past president, Ricardo, was back after a few months hiatus….and I must say, looking quite
tan and rested.  So good to see him.
Michelle got things rolling with her inspiring invocation on looking at the good and positive that life has to offer.  This followed by Juju as Joke Master and Alex our capable Toastmaster of the evening. Topic Master Larry, did a wonderful job with the theme “Procrastination”.  He not only asked thoughtful questions, but offered us a host of funny quotations as well. 
The second half, which followed a feast provided by August and others…thank you, was entertaining and informative.  Three speeches from Daniella (A walk down memory lane with her grandfather, August (How to find true love in CAVES), and Sam (30 second impressions)  highlighted the evening.  Ernestina provided us insight on effective evaluations.

A Wonderful, Memorable Week!

Fellow Toastmasters,

We had a nice crowd on hand for last night’s meeting. 
Toastmaster of the evening Lucille,  kept the order and had us all laughing, especially during her table topic.  Speaking of table topics, the original theme was Memory, however, we improvised on that theme to “What I want out of Toastmasters”.  Got to tell you, the energy, humor and sincerity was a level 10.  Alex followed through with a thorough and energetic evaluation.
Two speeches in the second half from Sindy (Successful Club Series on Speech introductions) and Daniel, his second manual speech (Twin brother).  Both made this such a
memorable Monday evening.

We missed all of you who couldn’t make it last night, but we’ll catch you next week.
