Toastmaster for our meeting was Clem and he encouraged us to never let the size of our “frying pan” prevent us from catching and retaining the opportunities that come our way.
Adelfettah presented his Ice-Breaker speech. He spoke about how a mix up with school changed his plan from Law to Economics but instead of complaining that he didn’t get what he originally wanted he still pressed through and is doing very well.
Rosanne spoke about her life married to a teacher. She touched upon the benefits and pitfalls that teachers endure and how it has affected her family. One of the benefits is job security and a pitfall is that a teacher’s time off comes at the most of expensive time of the year to take family vacations. Summer and holidays.
Table Topic winner was Chris.
All our evaluators did a great job and we look forward to a great meeting next week.
Feb 5, 2014 is our Club contest and we need more competitors. If you have completed 6 or more speeches in the C.C manual can enter the International Speech portion. For the Evaluation sections, it can be anyone.
