Hello Fellow and Future Toastmasters,
For weeks we had sunny Wednesdays that brought out good attendance but last week, on March 14th, the rain just wouldn’t stop!
Thankfully the members kept coming in, including long-time-missing, world traveler John W. with his dripping hat in hand. It’s always good to see him again—he consistently contributes a fantastic impromptu speech or 2 minute inspiration and has the ability to speak on the fly.
Connie H. who just received her CC Award, is already into her AC Bronze #2 speech, about an acquaintance’s marvelous work with children in India. Susan completed her (second time around) CC #10, on “Speaking With Or Without Notes”.
Excellent evaluations for the speeches were given by Borzo S. and the Chair–Jonathan B., who was honoured with a Toast for being the longest member of our Club…he joined in 2006.
Theo N. took on Table Topics and Word of the Day; he merged the two into a lively St. Patrick’s Day session, complete with a Leprechaun granting three wishes and using ‘luck’ (decorated with a shamrock) for the Word of the Day…proving that a one syllable word can be just as effective as a multi-syllabic, such as previously used ‘paraphernalia’ (miscellaneous belongings, accessories, etc).
Another great meeting of motivated speakers supporting each others’ progress. Let’s keep it up!
