Ahoy there, MeBuckos! We had a fun meeting today with our Toastmaster, Scott P, putting us in a “piraty” type mood with a theme of “Speak Like a Pirate Day”.
I believe we had our first-ever meeting where two sisters “me beauties” spoke on the same day! Sister #1, Kathy D, talked to us about how smart her children are, and why they’re so much smarter than ours! Not to be outdone, sister #2, Ellen C, gave on off-manual speech titled: “Lessons I Learned From My Father”, that garnered her the “Speaker-of-the-Week” award! They were both great and we appreciate being there to hear both of them!
Jared S was our Table Topics Master, and he gave each of the volunteers some good questions that weren’t impossible to answer. We heard from Cheryl E; Jennifer S (welcome back!!); a guest, Marshall H; and Craig M. Marshall’s response to what’s good and bad about Utah winters, captured the best Table Topic response of the day award!
Melissa B was our General Evaluator, and she was doing this role for the first time and did a good job! We got to hear Liz M evaluate Kathy’s speech and Darius O evaluated Ellen’s presentation. Both evaluations were great, but Darius walked away with the evaluator ribbon for his great job!
- If you know in advance that you won’t be attending on a given week, be sure and give the VP of Education as much notification as possible – Scott P this year!
- Be sure and check the schedule early so you are not surprised what role you need to fulfill!
We really appreciate the great job everyone did today in making the meeting so enjoyable!
See you all next week!
