This week’s theme “Disaster Preparedness” was very appropriate given recent national and world events. Our Toastmaster, Julie, discussed the importance of being prepared for a disaster such as an earthquake. She passed out a helpful basic emergency kit checklist prepared by “Ready OC– Orange County’s emergency preparedness resource” and inspired us all to either start or update our own emergency kit.
Our one and only speaker was Shefali, who gave a humorous speech about her beautiful Indian wedding ceremony. She shared colorful photos of the big day and explained the importance of different rituals throughout the ceremony.
Our Table Topics Master, Heather provided thought-provoking table topic questions related to disaster preparedness, and Ernesto Yzaguirre carefully evaluated Shefali’s speech. Overall, the meeting ran very smoothly according to our general evaluator Shirin Lavaie.
We also took a club photo with Woody the Traveling gavel. Follow the adventure via Instagram using #fdwoody
