Grub N Gab Toastmasters Oct. 10 Recap

Our October 10 meeting theme was “The Best Part of Fall Harvest.” Bidhan’s  advance communicator speech on “Shopping” captivated the audience as he described the heartwarming story of a late evening shopping trip with his son.  With only one planned speech we had a lively round of Table Topics.  One of our four guests, Jorge, won the Best Table Topics ribbon for described a fall vision engrained in his memory: a beautiful woman being photographed against a brilliant backdrop of changing fall leaves on the Sepulveda Pass.  Nady was Bidhan’s speech evaluator and gave valuable constructive feedback. Thanks everyone for a great meeting.
