June 12, 2018, Meeting Notes

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.

June 5, 2018, Meeting Notes

The theme of the meeting was “VOTING.” Jon was the presiding officer. There were 11 people at the meeting.

Our Toastmaster was Larry.

Jon shared about his work in a speech called “Mental Health Treatment Court Update.” He explained the particulars about how people end up in mental health court, and that there are three prongs to his job: 1) public safety; 2) physical and mental health needs; and, 3) community integration. Jon expressed how rewarding it can be to help people who are struggling.

Chris presented a speech called “Why We Can’t Lose Weight.” She told a story about Katie and her serious weight loss struggles. We were astonished to learn that over 70% of the American population is overweight or obese. Chris has some answers as to how to successfully lose unwanted weight, and it isn’t what we have all been taught.

Christine gave an extemporaneous speech on “Growing Up in India.” Though she was born into a patriarchal society, she was raised mainly by the women in her household because her father was often at sea. She regaled the group with what it was like to grow up in India. It is different there now, and she enjoys keeping her memories of the past.
