March 25, 2014 Meeting Notes

The theme of the meeting was “Spring.” Mary Jo was our Presiding Officer, there were 12 people at the meeting including guest (and now member!) Stephanie.

Toastmaster: Grace

Humor: Wayne faked us out with a story about a scam involving young women approaching men at Home Depot that sounded plausible, until the end…

Word-of-the-day: Sol gave us “Peregrinations” – to do things as you’re moving

Ah-counter: Sol

Speaking tip: Ron – be prepared for impromptu speaking, all you need is a basic topic (cars for example), create a short introduction, make 3 points about cars, then a closing – you have speeches inside you!

Timer: Stephanie


Cristy’s speech, “The 2014 Nissan Rogue”, was her first Toastmaster’s speech: delivered without notes and with humor and poise. Good job!!!

Dave’s speech, “My Regulatory Meet and Greet,” was a practice run for an upcoming presentation to County leaders.

Ron’s impromptu speech, “Peregrinations of the Mind,” described the benefits, and perils, of audio books.

Tabletopics Master: Larry

General Evaluator: Cindy

Evaluators: Mary Jo, Wayne, Azim

Awardmaster: Sol

Speaker – Cristy won best speaker for a great job presenting a speech she will be giving to work colleagues.

Evaluator – Mary Jo won for her evaluation of Cristy’s speech

Table topics – Stephanie won the award for her story about an uncomfortable situation when traveling abroad with a friend.

Rooney: Christine lamented the fact that transitioning from a rental to home ownership not only carries lots of responsibilities, but can also push people out of their comfort zone.
