This week we had three guests join our meeting (John, Ryan, and Frank). Our meeting theme was “Invest In Yourself” led by Nancy. As we are busy taking care of family and work, we often forget to take the time to do things for ourselves. Nancy reminded us to allocate time to “invest in ourselves.” She has invested her time in joining pottery classes for fun and relaxation. She also sets goals to expand her business skills. Shirin delivered an awesome and entertaining sales-pitch, recommending Malta as the “Best Place to Retire.” Malta is a tiny island between Sicily and North Africa. The weather is warm with over 300 days of sunshine. Shirin’s speech was well-researched: including cost of living, health-care, food, public transportation, and entertainment. She ensured us not to worry that the Maltese speak fluent English. We will fit right in. Shirin has us sold on visiting Malta! Saurabh gave a detailed evaluation providing Shirin with tips to further enhance her presentation.
Meanwhile, during the Table Topics portion of our meeting; Julie, Shirin, John (our guest), and Shefali shared their views on investing in their health, building self-confidence, reading educational books, and choosing to be happy. John did a stupendous job winning the Blue Ribbon Award!
We, Grub N Gabbers, are always open to improving our meeting. Our General Evaluator, Julie, encouraged us to think of ways to better communicate confirming functionary roles so that we are not overwhelmed with emails and filling vital roles at the last minute. If you have suggestions, please send them to Julie!
