This week we had an excellent Toastmasters meeting. The meeting started with an award presentation for Deb who won first place in the Area Humorous Speech Contest and Evaluation Contest. Congratulations Deb! Our Toastmaster, Nancy, picked “Cupcakes” as the theme of the meeting and brought in some wonderful black forest cupcakes to share with everyone. Our two speakers delivered great presentations. Thomas spoke about “Rules of Public Speaking” and shared some tips that we all can use. Julie provided a speech from the “Speaking to Inform” manual and provided “Presidential General Election Voting Information,” including options to cast our ballot and how we can register to vote. Our Table Topics Master, Ernesto had great questions and did a wonderful job of bringing the cupcake theme into his questions and everyone had a lot of fun with it. Our best speaker was Julie. Caroline took home the Best Table Topics ribbon and Bidhan won best evaluator. All in all it was a great meeting.
