Throw away your potatoes! — September 23 Meeting Recap


We challenge you: buy a bag of potatoes, then carry it with you everywhere you go — to work, to see a client, on a date, to sleep. The next day, report to us how you feel!

Be, as Toastmaster, used this metaphor to describe the mental potatoes, or excuses and negative thoughts, we carry around every day, which weigh us down. She encouraged us all to “throw away our potatoes” and move forward with a positive mindset. Performing her 8th speech using visual aids, Jackie “shook our way to health” by demonstrating her secret recipe in making a tasty smoothie with just seven ingredients: milk, fruit, oil, fibre, vitamin C, energy, and protein powder, to fill us up for hours.

Our Area 27 Director Dorothy came by and gave a guest speech on how leading with “super glue” tendencies will enhance team building and result in more opportunities. Finally, Casandra won Table Topics with her speech on family potlucks — perfect for Thanksgiving!
