Thank you, everyone, for a great meeting! Our Toastmaster, Dan shares a few ways to
help us maintain and/or increase our Memories. It was found beneficial to eat more fruits
and veggies, practice repetition, mnemonic skills, link things with an
association, aerobic exercise, and plentiful of sleep. It is also helpful to continue learning new
materials and avoid using brain training apps.
We welcomed Kim McPhaul, our newest GNG member. We also had two returning guests (Kevin and
Sabastian). We had no speakers this week;
we had so much fun in Table Topics which led by Kevin MacNaughton. There was a schedule conflict in the reserved
conference room, resulted in a shorter meeting.
We wished we had more time!
My best memories are the ones we make together and the stories you share. Hope to see you all next week!
YTK forever changed our programming language. It took strong communication between teams and strong leaders to ensure that the world didn’t come to end in the year 2000.
One key component to Toastmasters is learning to run and lead a meeting. Imagine is everyone sat around during YK2 and simply stared at each other. We would be living in the Dark Ages without the technology we have grown to love and loathe!

Thanks to everyone for attending our “New Years
Resolutions” meeting on January 15th where our Toastmaster, Tien,
delivered a great introduction regarding 10 healthy habits to establish for the
new year. There was a couple great speeches delivered; one inspiring speech by
Sapna regarding personalities; another by Dan about filler words.
It was great to see a few new guests come out to the meeting and a couple even volunteered to present at Table Topics. One of the best Table Topics was actually awarded to one of the guests, Christy. Looking forward to seeing everyone at our next meeting Tuesday (1/22).

We miss you at the meeting this week! Although the group was small, we managed to kick-off our first 2019 meeting with an awesome theme ‘New Year Resolutions’. We set personal and professional goals in thriving forward, anticipating uncertainty and preparing ourselves in solving the problems. We certainly stepped out of our comfort zone testing our spontaneity. Sapna delivered her second speech on ‘Hobbies’ outlining her leisure activity in woodwork, painting and her passion for volunteering, while Shefali provided valuable feedback to further enhance Sapna’s speech. Meanwhile, Tien led a fun table topic segment having Alex, Shefali, Sapna and Nijith (guest) sharing their new year resolutions, ways to make them stick and continue to prosper throughout the year. We learned that by sharing our new year resolutions with a friend or family member has its advantage, ensuring our goals will be fulfilled.
One of my goals in Toastmasters this year is setting a higher bar, thoroughly committed, making every meeting counts. What’s your goal? Have you thought about your new year resolutions? It is still not too late!
LACE (Leadership & Communication Experience) meeting will take place this Saturday, January 12, 2019. It is a great way to learn, network and/or train as club officers. LACE is for EVERYONE! All club members are welcome! Here to Register.
