November 7, 2017, Meeting Notes

There were 13 members present at our meeting on November 7, 2017, along with our guest Adrian, who represented us at the District 33 humorous speech contest on Saturday.

Our Toastmaster was Jon.  

The theme was Art — Dallas and otherwise.

Steve spoke about his struggles in his relationship with his family with their lack of adapting to his new, healthy lifestyle; and how he was ultimately asked for one word to describe his purpose as an inspirer.

Christine spoke about London, past present and future: about her visit to, and the sights of, the Churchill War Room museum, of enjoying rides on London’s double-decker buses, and of experiencing the office of the future where no space is wasted and no one has a permanent office.

Adrian Prado gave his humorous speech about the creature “Swamp Crack” which rises on hot days and nights, and how the creature afflicted and tortured him and those around him.  We gave him feedback about his speech.

Best speaker: Adrian

Best evaluator: Robert, for his evaluation of Christine‘s speech

Best table topics: Taiwoand his aversion to abstract art.
