Giving Thanks in a Nutshell: Recap of Oct. 4th Meeting

It’s almost the long Thanksgiving weekend, and this meeting was appropriately in theme!  Our Toastmaster for the night was Camila, who kicked off the meeting with a speech that challenged us all to be more grateful this Thanksgiving.

Our first speaker for tonight was Theresa, who completed her second speech.  Her topic was also related to Thanksgiving.  Theresa took a different angle, explaining the light and dark sides of Thanksgiving symbols: the cornucopia, wheat sheaf, and acorn.  She encouraged us to avoid using more food than we need, and to not get too *stuffed* this weekend!  Great speech Theresa – looking forward to your next one.

VJ lead an impressive Table Topics session, with 9 participants giving improvised speeches.  Out of the many competitors, Sarah Yang won the vote of the crowd, talking about how having a few close friends can be better than having many friends.

Overall, it was a great meeting, and we were happy to see so many guests attend.  Hoping you all enjoy a fantastic long weekend – See you next week!
