11/21/2016 About Last Night.....

Hello Fellow Toastmasters,

Yesterday’s meeting was centered on giving thanks, and our few, but mighty crowd had the opportunity to share who and what they are thankful for. A number of our members stepped in to fill roles, and for that we are thankful for as well.

Brian was our Table Topic Master for the night and asked our speakers varying questions related to the Thanksgiving Holiday. One memorable question asked, “Should alcohol be a part of the holiday celebration?” You can imagine how that answer went J  Fabian then provided our speakers with useful feedback, and that wrapped up the first half of our meeting.
Thank you to Martin for providing the refreshments for the night, they were tasty.

Last night we were pleasantly delighted with four speeches during the second half of our meeting. Alex W., a newly enrolled member, volunteered to give us his Icebreaker speech. Our other speakers included Emi, who spoke about believing and achieving as it related to a recent body building contest he won. Diego shared with us very useful ideas to make our homes more energy efficient rather than investing in solar panels. Michael shared an argumentative business plan, which included our own members of club 269, for the newly approved Proposition 64. If you want to know more, you’ll just have to join us so you don’t miss out!

Our General Evaluator George did an excellent job providing feedback for the speech evaluators and quickly summarizing the overall meeting.
The end of the year is soon approaching; let’s finish it strong by coming to Toastmasters on Monday nights and practicing our speaking abilities. Also, we will be celebrating our annual end-of-the-year holiday party in a few weeks. More details to come.

See you next week!
