Speakers:

Steve’s speech, “My Football Story,” described his move to Santa Barbara from Santa Ynez when he was in high school. Steve was recruited to play football, and worked out like crazy to do well. Sadly, an unfortunate ATV accident derailed his plans for a few months but he recovered and went on to play very well!
In his speech “Oh No, Not Another One,” Wayne shared his concerns about proposed changes to taxes, and what that will mean to those of us that aren’t millionaires.
Jon’s speech, “Introduction to Restorative Court,” was the third in a series of speeches that Jon has put together to educate clubmembers on how the city handles issues with those in the population with drug/alcohol issues, and often have mental problems and are homeless.

May 30, 2017 Meeting Notes

The theme of the meeting was “Summer Fun,” Cindy was the presiding officer. The meeting was unusually, and pleasantly, musical, with cameos from Larry, Mark and Janna! There were 16 people at the meeting including guests Meg and our Area Director David.

Speechs;
Larry’s
speech, “Summertime Childhood” started out with a song as Larry shared summertime experiences from his childhood, including hours in a swimming pool and developing leather feet from running around in bare feet with his friends.

Kristina shared the joys on transpacific travel in her speech “The OTHER Type of Fun.” Kristina had an amazing trip to Thailand, where she and her daughter had a great time eating their way through the country! Unfortunately, airline food proved to be more of a challenge for both, making for an exceptionally long trip home.

Christine gave “A Roast of a Different Kind,” presenting a very funny “roast” of club President Cindy.

 

Awards:
Best Speaker
went to Kristina
Best Evaluator was Julia, for her excellent evaluation of Kristina’s speech
Best Table Topics was awarded to Janna, who shared her beautiful voice with the club in a duet with Table Topics Master Mark!
