The theme of the meeting was “PEANUT BUTTER.” Jen was the presiding officer. There were 11 people at the meeting.

Our Toastmaster was Ron.

Wayne told an amusing story, “A Different Kind of History.” He read to us the history of the world as written by a teacher who replaced much of the text with funny bloopers that students had included on their assignments. That history was quite different than what we learned in school!

Janna presented a speech called “Stop in the Name of the Law!” She shared about a time she and her son got pulled over by the police while driving in her family vehicle and it was a scary experience, indeed!

Taiwo’s speech title was “All About the Ball.” He taught us all about rugby, a sport that he enjoys playing. Taiwo lit up the room as he demonstrated how to throw and kick the ball. He brought along real balls to demo with. There was a Q&A afterwards, and a number of folks asked questions.

Best speaker: Janna

Best evaluator: Jon

Best table topics: Paul shared a story about growing up with one kind of peanut butter and one kind of jelly (grape).

The theme of the meeting was “SCHOOL’S OUT.” Jen was the presiding officer. There were 11 people at the meeting.

Our Toastmaster was Larry.

Paul completed a Read A Story type speech by reading a rendition of Sodom and Gomorrah that had a play on words. His speech was called “Lot’s Wife.” Paul provided the text in case the members wanted to read along.

Cindy presented a speech called “Who’s on First.” Because roles will soon need to be filled for this coming year, she explained about the Mission Club’s seven leadership roles that are open. According to Cindy, all roles are important and a successful meeting happens when the team works together!

Christine’s speech title was “Know Thyself.” Her speech required her to journal her emotions over a short period of time and be introspective about the experience. Christine reminded the club members that one cannot move from place to place and lose oneself – because one’s “self” always follows oneself.

Best speaker: Christine

Best evaluator: Alyce

Best table topics: Janna
