Grub N Gab Toastmasters – April 24 Meeting Recap

Our club meeting started on time. With having only five members attend this week, each member stepped up taking multiple roles. No doubts, our club members are always in good spirit!

The theme of our meeting was “Seasons of Life.”  Our Toastmaster of that Day, Heather Menchine shared a personal story about her parents, after some strong persuasion they moved to a new house a a 10 minutes’ drive from her place.  She discussed how she is embracing her life with these good changes.

We had two speakers in our meeting: Saurabh and Bianca.

Saurabh’s objective was to entertain and indeed with his speech “Me In my 20s” he was able to tickle our members! His speech was evaluated by Tien and she provided some great feedback.

Bianca’s objective was to make audience believe in her speech and definitely was all prepared with statistics to persuade everyone. She discussed the local news channel group “Sinclair Broadcasting company,” which accounts of 70 percent of national news stations!

We had impromptu Table Topics session with Word of the Day, Thrive.  Bianca and Tien talk about the new things they want to bring in their life, which they really liked or wanted to do in past and bring that as part of our theme “Seasons of Life”

At the recommendation of our Toastmaster of the Day, we had no voting, and everyone was a winner this week!
