January 16, 2018, Meeting Notes

The theme of the meeting was “Help!” Jen was the presiding officer. There were 12 people at the meeting.

Our Toastmaster was Larry.  

Janna’s speech, “The Holland Code,” expounded upon a career development theory that was developed by John Holland.  She explained the six different themes and how they can be used to help people choose satisfying careers.

Alyce gave an impromptu speech called “The Power of Your Mind: How to Use It.” She showed us the power of our brains by lulling us all into a relaxed state through visualizing ourselves on a sunny, warm beach. 

Best speaker: There were only two speakers so we did not vote on Best Speaker. One speaker was not able to attend because the 101 is still closed from the Montecito mudslides.

Best evaluator: N/A (see Best Speaker above)

Best table topics: Ron amused us with his Throw Back Thursday story – a bus trip from the East Coast to California in 1977 that took a loooong four days.

It was very nice to have guests Lena, Josh, and Al.

January 9, 2018, Meeting Notes

The theme of the meeting was “Technology!” Jen was the presiding officer. There were 12 people at the meeting.

Our Toastmaster was Cindy.  

Taylor’s amusing speech, “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,” revealed Taylor’s inner conflict with treating animals humanely, protecting the environment, and maintaining a just economy with his deep, inner need to eat meat. When he is MEAT HUNGRY, Mr. Hyde, his alter ego, rears his ugly head and overtakes the good, sensible, Mr. Jekyll who wants to treat everything and everyone with kindness. Meditation and logical reasoning withstanding, those burgers can call to him and break his will!

Larry told the club about his and his wife’s traveling adventure to New Mexico in a Tesla with their friends. At the end of the speech we were admonished to “Charge Forth,” as his title stated, with new technology even though there are still some challenges with “getting there” (finding enough supercharge stations), “getting around there” (having a limited range to “tootle around”), and “being there” (to which he admitted feeling somewhat superior to “fossil fuel people” who were sightseeing alongside them). Yes, it is time to cut the old technology leash!

Best speaker: There were only two speakers because the freeway was closed due to the terrible mudslides from the rainstorm we had after the Thomas Fire. Our third speaker, Taiwo, was stuck in Carpinteria.

Best evaluator: N/A (see Best Speaker above)

Best table topics: Cindy, who really likes her Alexa for music and her Apple watch for tracking fitness data, shared that, sadly, her tile floor obliterated her Apple watch. She really hopes that her favorite Apple device will be replaced on her soon-to-be birthday!

It was very nice to have a new guest. Welcome, Anna!

January 2, 2108, Meeting Notes

The theme of the meeting was “Ready. Set. Go!” Jen was the presiding officer. There were 14 people at the meeting.

Our Toastmaster was Ron.  

Cindy’s speech, “How to Be a Distinguished Club,” suggested that members set goals for Toastmasters objectives, and explained how attaining those goals contribute to the success of the club overall.

In his speech, “Turning Point: Time to Transform Your Life,” Steve described how he has worked to change his life, moving to a more positive and satisfying personal and professional path in the face of substantial challenges.

Janna told the club about her stand up paddleboarding adventures in her speech, “Tumbled in a Wet Dryer.” Janna successfully mastered the ability to stand on the board, but getting back to shore proved to be more of a challenge – even at the safest beach in California!

Best speaker: Cindy

Best evaluator: Alyce, for her evaluation of Steve’s speech

Best table topics: Taylor, who told the club that he doesn’t have any outstanding New Year’s resolutions, although he does have an outstanding library book from college and his resolution this year is to find the book!
