Grub N Gab Toastmasters – July 10 Meeting Recap

Thank you everyone for a great meeting this week.  Our theme was “Things to do in a Lifetime.”  Julie reminded us to take time to enjoy life and spend time with those we love.

We had two speakers.  Julie shared her Division E goals for the 2018/2019 Toastmasters year and tips for building a successful club.  Click here to read about her goals.

Meanwhile, Dan shared the importance of “taking a break” from technology.  Many people die from looking at their phone while walking. The typical person looks at their phone every five seconds.   Dan shared that we can reduce our phone usage by reading a book, taking a walk and encouraging everyone to put their phone in the center of the table – the first person who looks at their phone pays!  We should also avoid the use of electronic devices two hours before bed, so we don’t reduce our melatonin.

The common theme during Table Topics was the importance of family and spending quality time with our loved ones!

4th of July was the theme of our July 3rd meeting. We had two excellent speeches and a fun and challenging Word of the Day from Daniel.
