April 10, 2018, Meeting Notes

The theme of the meeting was “REJUVENATE.” Jen was the presiding officer. There were 14 people at the meeting.

Our Toastmaster was Larry.

Jon gave a speech called “What is the Password, Please” that kept us on the edge of our seats. The story took place during a dangerous time, Desert Shield in 1991, and was about a test of character and following orders. The moral of the speech was to stay true to yourself and follow through with what you are supposed to do.

Taiwo presented a speech called “History of School Finance.” He spoke on the history of financing schools in the state of California, and explained the laws and regulations that have governed school finance over the years. We all came away smarter about the school system’s funding process and its effect on local schools.

Jen pulled off an impromptu speech called, Whose Problem Is It? She was faced with a problem recently and wanted to take the easiest route to fix it…let someone else do it! It took a short time for her to realize that the fastest and best way to fix it would be to take care of it herself. We were advised that, if we are “problem evaders,” it is a good idea to consider whose problem it really is before taking action to fix it.

Best speaker: Jon

Best evaluator: Holly

Best table topics: Al shared a story about going to Iceland and swimming in the Blue Lagoon. We wonder, was it a truly rejuvenating experience?

Welcome to guest, Andres!

March 27, 2018, Meeting Notes

The theme of the meeting was “BIRTHDAYS.” Jen was the presiding officer. There were 15 people at the meeting.

Our Toastmaster was Steve.

Grace’s speech, “The Ice Maker Cometh and the Ice Maker Goeth,” was about her refrigerator and its icemaker. She thought her refrigerator had finally broken after 25 good years, but alas, all she had to do was “listen to the voice of my mother” for it to get fixed in an unexpected way. Grace saved herself a lot of money, and encouraged all of us to listen to the voice of our mothers!

Paul presented a speech called “What’s the Address?” It involved a story about one of his family’s frequent visits to his mother-in-law’s house and “helping her out” with renting one of her rooms. The premise was that mistakes are something to celebrate because they can be learned from, and they can lead to great stories later in life (like this one).

Chris did her Icebreaker and shared about her love of the book, The Black Stallion, as a child, and her history of owning and being around horses. She is learning all about the personality of her newest horse. She also has started a website on how to take pictures of horses.

Best speaker: Chris

Best evaluator: Ron

Best table topics: Kartik shared a birthday party story from his childhood that involved a flood and unexpected long-term guests.

Welcome again to guest, Bala, and Kartik!
