May 15, 2018, Meeting Notes

The theme of the meeting was “FOOD.” Jon was the presiding officer. There were 12 people at the meeting.

Our Toastmaster was Jon.

Steve’s speech called “Protégé: Teachers, Coaches, Mentors” focused on each of those roles. He defined each one and shared some of his own life experiences related to each one.

Norma presented a speech called “Deal with It!” Often, when she had a problem as a child, her mother told her nicely to deal with it. She found that saying helpful, especially, when as an adult, she had to move her family with young children to a different home. Norma closed with “when a door closes you never know when another is going to open.”

Christine spoke on “My Nonexistent Pets.” She shared stories about three pets in her life that were not her own: a dog, a cat and a parrot. Each animal made an impression on her in different ways.

May 8, 2018, Meeting Notes

The theme of the meeting was “May Flowers.” Jon was the presiding officer. There were 14 people at the meeting.

Our Toastmaster was Alyce.

In her speech, “A Respectful Roast of Ron,” Cindy talked about the wonderful things Ron has done for the club and for members, while adding in a few humorous comments.

Al’s  speech, “Digital Toastmasters,” related a Al’s experience with a speaking feedback tool that he encountered at an event at UCSB. The tool incorporates artificial intelligence to advise the speaker on how to improve their presentation

Jon shared some of his experiences during a trip to China several years ago. Jon had the audience laughing at his adventures with the locals, and crying about some of the things his travel companions ate (nothing like a good scorpion to get the digestion going!)

Best speaker went to Jon for his China tales.

Best evaluator went to Christine for her evaluation of Jon’s speech.

Best table topics: Stevefor his proposed “flower mashup” of a rose and a sunflower.
