Grub N Gab Toastmasters June 27 Recap

The theme this week was Summer Vacation! We had a small meeting probably due to the fact that everyone was on Summer Vacation!! Everyone did a great job by performing multiple roles this meeting.

We had one of the most interesting meetings of the year with Nancy presenting from Skype in Campbell, California!.  It was fun to be able to see and talk to her throughout the meeting!

Tien had a great theme of Summer Vacation where she told us of her summer vacation to the Amish country (Pennsylvania Dutch) in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and then going to visit New Jersey to check out the beach on the other side of the country. We can’t wait to hear about the Mushroom farm that Tien is planning to visit over in Pennsylvania!

Nancy had a great presentation about Aesthetic Trends through Skype! The statistics are quite staggering with millennials getting plastic surgery now. There has been huge increases in plastic surgery, surgical and non surgical from 1997 to 2015 and then another staggering increase from just 2016 to 2017 – all pretty much thanks to social media and having to look perfect for those INSTAGRAM pictures! What surprised us is that Breast Implant removal has increased by 36 percent!

Here at Allergan, Nancy explained we definitely have job security if the millennials keep getting plastic surgery.  Americans have spent over 1.5 billion dollars in the past year alone on plastic surgery! Liposuction is still the number one procedure for both men and woman!  We hope to see more presentations through Skype soon.

Saurabh had a great speech on New Beginnings, where he talked about his mother, who was a helicopter mother and would run around and do everything, who had huge issues with weak bones and knee pain and eventually had to have two knee surgeries, especially because the first one was done wrong.  He talked about once she got her second surgery where both knees were replaced, she was given new life.  She could not stop smiling and walking, and started a new journey with her new knees, and she has returned to her helicopter ways and walks every day and uses the gift she was given!

AnnaLisa was in charge of Table Topics where she asked Shirin and Heather questions about summer vacation.  Dream vacations and any superstitions that need to be done when traveling.

Our next meeting is on July 11 as we are off for the 4th of July holiday. Hope to see everyone again at that meeting!!
