July 22nd Meeting

We had three (3) guests at our meeting! Welcome to repeat visitor, Joan Carlisle, and to new guests: Gary Connor and Dee Dee Carden!

The Toastmaster for the evening was Bob Daigneault, CC. We had two speeches: D. Kirkland gave the last speech needed to complete another leadership level! Congratulations, D.! Tim Manson gave a Folk Tale speech from the Storytelling manual ("The Armadillo's Song"). The evaluator was: Frank Jaworski. Table Topics Master was D. Kirkland.

Best Table Topics Speaker: Margarette Mattern

Margarette Mattern was the only Toastmaster who satisfied the time requirements for her project! Both speeches and the evaluation went over time. One other Table Topics speaker went over time. This is something we will need to work on in the future. Congratulations to Margarette for showing us how it's supposed to be done!

Our visitors all made thoughtful comments after the meeting was over. Joan said, "I could be intimidated by the great speeches or I could choose to aspire." There's a future Toastmaster, if ever I heard one! I'm looking forward to hearing your first speech, Joan!
