John K. was our honourable toastmaster for the evening, and kicked off the meeting with a joke, reminding us that laughter is the best medicine. We wish him best of luck in the next round of humourous speech competitions, as he recently won our internal club competition three weeks ago!
Heidi was our first speaker, who talked about her adventures in Portland. She convinced the audience to visit “The City of Roses” to try delicious hand-roasted coffee, taste a variety of craft beer, and eat very strange donuts in the shape of voodoo dolls. Definitely an interesting place to visit!
Next, we had a full round of Table Topics, lead by Andrew. He had numerous participants tell funny stories about strange fruits and vegetables. We learned the names of a few interesting and uncommon legumes.
Wes provided evaluations for each participant, and the winner of the Table Topics session was Camila! She gave a detailed account of how to use spaghetti squash for cooking and her ‘beauty’ routine. Congratulations Camila!
See you all for another great meeting on October 18th! Our lineup of speakers includes Bob and Catarina, and we’re excited to hear what they have prepared.
