Another Fast, Productive Meeting
Great meeting with Ed at the helm as Toastmaster, and in addition to guiding us through the agenda provided the “Protocol Minute” in Lesa’s absence.
Two new members “broke the ice:” Jennifer regaled us with “a Few Lessons Learned” and Ophelia helped us learn “About Ophelia.”
Susan, as Table Topics® Master provoked us with questions about kites, introduced with interesting tidbits about kite history that led into each question. Shenin and Anh Chi evaluated Ophelia’s and Jenifer’s speeches, Shenin winning the “Bettert Evaluator” award. Jennifer was proclaimed the “Better Speaker” at today’s meeting.
Noteworthy: both Evaluators used the Icebreaker’s stated goals in their evaluations. However, only four of us used the word of the day, “perplexed,” that was chosen by our Grammarian Zach.
David covered for Cindy and gave us our assignments for next week; looks like we’ll have a couple more Icebreakers. Great work! new members.
Our new visitor was pleased with the meeting and is considering joining. His company promotes Toastmasters – and he was a USAF airman which could round out our service members with a “blue suit.”
