Another full house and a TERRIFIC MEETING today. Bob Jones, guest and former FastTracker, AND the “the funniest man alive,” according to Elizabeth Millen, made an appearance after a two-year tour with Toyota. Charlie McOuat took over as Toastmaster of the Day.
Table Topics Master, Cindy Petitt, asked prodigious, thought-provoking questions about holiday moments and the differences between men and women. Jane Jude, back from sabbatical, recaptured her holiday dinner with all its glorious delicacies, while Paul Glick and Diane McMahon addressed the perplexities of the sexes. The winner of the day was straight-talking Paul Glick with his memorable, quote ”that’s just the way I am.”
First prepared speaker, Anne Cyran, showed us a shortcut to journaling along with an idea of what to do with all those papery compliments members write at a speech’s end — save and place them in a jar with other ideas and positive thoughts for 2014! Next, Angel Flewelling described her new wedding planner business, 20/20/20, so keep her in mind for any upcoming “nuptials.” Finally, Shannon Stephens talked about his newly found thrill of snow skiing, a passion discovered after he had been”overserved” at an auction one evening. Just think, had Shannon not been over served, his passion would have remained locked away inside - dormant and untapped. So here’s to auctions….or overserving…
John Wigington won Best Evaluator for his critique of Shannon’s speech.
Our dear Beau Patterson is having foot surgery and will be out of action for the next month. He will be in town should be up for calls and/or visitors so we’ll keep his status posted. Jim Bremner will take membership applications in Beau’s absence.
Next week, January 17, the Toastmaster is Anne Cyran. Table Topics Master and General Evaluator will be managed by John Wigington and Angel Flewelling. Speakers are Charlie McOuat, Tom Drago and Helen Price. Check your roles at www.toastmastershhi.com and have a wonderful week!
