Grub N Gab March 26, 2019 Recap

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!

Celebrate Survival with Grub N Gab Toastmasters on March 19

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!

Join us for a meeting and start building your skills. Bring your lunch and we will meet you in the lobby!

of gaining great communication skills. You’ll improve your

Grub N Gab Jan. 15 Recap

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).
