President Elizabeth Millen introduced new guest, Lee Porter and welcomed Toastmaster of the Day Anne Cyran.
Table Topics Master, Tom Berrigan, coaxed personal questions and childhood memories from contestants. Paul Boes talked about improving himself, Paul Glick reflected on a childhood song named Toyland, and Glenn Love whetted our holiday appetites with her memorable descriptions of yummy, carb-loaded Polish feasts of yesteryear. Glenn Love won Best Table Topics of the day.
In the speaking portion of the day, Rosemary Staples talked about her summers selling books door-to-door back in college days. Janet Turley invited us to an imaginary party in her icebreaker speech, Cocktail Time, and Charlie McOuat told how the “hard-of-hearing handicap” can actually make a healthier marriage. Janet Turley won Best Speaker and also received a First-Timer ribbon. Best Evaluator was Kathy Diello in her evaluation of Charlie McOuat’s speech.
Anne Cyran will host the annual Holiday Party….dates TBA.
