Grub N Gab Toastmasters Dec. 5 Recap

The theme of the meeting this week was staying young. Tips for staying young are 1. Live honestly 2. Eat slowly and 3. Lie about Your Age.  In keeping with the theme, our Word of the Day was vigorous.

We had two great speakers Alex and Heather. Alex’s speech was about high cost of internet in US vs. the other countries.  He also discussed price gouging by major internet providers.

Heather’s speech was about American Music Award that she attended with her family. She stated the biggest stars were a Korean boy band BTC.  Despite their star power, media didn’t mention their name and when they were performing the cameras were turned off.  The media instead focused on Pink and Christina Aguilera, who received only moderate applause.

Grub N Gab Toastmasters Nov. 28 Recap

Gratitude was the theme of our November 28 meeting.  Jeanie, our Toastmaster, encouraged us to combat the negative thoughts we often have about ourselves by offering every member three specific and thoughtful reasons why she is grateful for us. It helped us all look at ourselves in a positive and different light.

We had two excellent speakers.  RoseMary won the Best Speaker ribbon with her Ice Breaker speech. Using organization, PowerPoint slides and humor, she eloquently explained her love for learning.  Sam’s speech, American Dream, was a personal tale of gratitude juxtaposed by the story of another less fortunate Mr. Oh.

Our best Table Topics winner was Gorje who shared his experience co-teaching a course on Financial Peace and the gratitude he felt knowing how much the gift of a mattress was appreciated by one of his workshop attendees.

Sapna took home the Best Evaluator ribbon offering with her thoughtful evaluation of Sam’s speech.

Thanks everyone for such an uplifting meeting. Happy Birthday Sam and thank you Jeanie for an excellent theme – I am grateful for your openness, positivity, and infectious enthusiasm.
