Our President Poorana was back after having to miss the meetings for almost two months. All of us, including Poorana, were delighted to have him and his kind energy back.
Again, we were able to welcome a new member to the club: Ksenija, who has lived in many places throughout the world and is a experienced Toastmaster who will surely bring good stories and energy to the club. Area Director and Toastmaster friend Adam McConnaughy was back, always a pleasure to have him as guest; and Ulrike was here for the third time, which gives us hope she may consider joining the club sometime soon.
JP led us through the evening as TME. Besides being a competent host, JP shared information for all on how to use easyspeak to best use the clubs resources.
Eloisa did a great job in her first time role as Table Topics master. Here the questions she brought about vacations:
- 1 Adam: Your best green vacation. Adam talked about loving the warmth of some vacation locations.
- 2 Kala: Your best travel experience. Kala talked immediately of how wonderful her vacation in Egypt was.,
- 3 Ksenija: Your most interesting experience with food on vacation. She told of loving to travel, and the the food was always exciting, but just one part of the joy.
- 4 Jeff: If you could bring along 3 persons from an earlier time with you on vacation, who would it be. I loved the question and imagined vacationing with three of my favorites: Epictetus from ancient Rome; Henry Miller, the American author, and Mark Twain.
I was kindly voted in as best TTs speaker tonight.
The one prepared speech was from Kala, who was doing her Icebreaker. The title: Life is Beautiful. As Kala’s Evaluator, I was flabbergasted (the Word of the Day) by how much talent Kala demonstrated in her first project: clear language, great content that told us lots about her life and her values. Well done Kala!
Best wishes to you all, Jeff
