March 7 Grub N Gab Toastmasters Recap

“Never Give Up” was the theme of our meeting on March 7.  We had a full-house with four guests:  Emma and Nina from Western Digital and Allergan employees, Erica and Sepna who attended our Open House last week. Shelly did a great job at first time Toastmaster.  Saurabh delivered his first advanced communication speech and told a tale from Hindu Mythology about King Akbar, Birbal, his advisor and the foolish barber. Shirin gave a humorous speech about her trip to Costa Rica where she went horseback riding, zip-lining and exploring the coffee plantations and wilderness of Liberia (not to be confused with Liberia in Africa). Our two speakers shared the best speakers ribbon.  Jeanie won best table topics explaining how her family helps her persevere and AnnaLisa took home the best evaluator ribbon.

Please wish our Area Contest contestants Julie and Heather good luck on Saturday! Cheer them on in person and hear great speakers, registration is still open.  For more details visit

Congratulations again to Grub N Gab Toastmasters on our 10-year anniversary.
