01/25/2016 meeting "I have a dream …"

Hello Fellow Toastmasters, our meeting back from our holiday off last week was productive and appropriate since our theme was Martin Luther King Jr. 
Thank you to our Toastmasters who filled in for roles last night, this is a great opportunity to learn and practice our skills. 

Our Invocation by Byron was uplifting as he shared a story of inspiration from our own Toastmasters magazine. Migo filled in as our Joke Master and he was also our Toastmaster for the night, making sure our meeting stayed on track. 

Lucille was our Table Topic Master and she gave a very good introduction into our Table Topics, and gave us thoughtful questions on a topic that is often sensitive. All speakers are commended for going up and speaking their minds and sharing their views on this holiday and the importance of it. 
Our Table Topic Evaluator George focused his evaluations on critique and pointed out patterns of habits that some of the speakers had. Very useful pointers were given for all speakers. 

Thank you for the wonderful refreshments provided by Byron, Daniel and Migo last night. The snacks were truly enjoyed. 

We had one speaker for the night George, who gave us his sixth manual speech about the Roller Derby and what it takes to be a referee. He presented a very entertaining and well thought out speech. His evaluator Brian, had more praise than critique, but offered a few helpful suggestions for his next speech. 

The general evaluator, myself, gave a well-rounded review of the meeting then handed it over to our Toastmaster Migo to announce the winners of the night. We ended our productive meeting a few minutes early and are eager to reconvene once again next Monday night. 

Hope to see many of there.
