April 9, 2015: President’s Report

As some of you predicted, this week’s meeting went as planned.  
The theme of the meeting was “Reverse Meeting” concluded by by Toastmaster Diana B.  John W followed as General Evaluator.
  • Best Table Topic: Lynn P
  • Most Improved: Nancy J
  • Best Evaluator: Felicia D
  • Best Speaker: Mark E
The evaluators were all extremely specific in their advice to the speakers letting them know the parts of the speech they enjoyed and giving examples from the speeches.  Speaker Terry H shared with us his storytelling skills.  Mark E gave a Toast to Voyagers to celebrate the first 32 years as a group.  And Nancy J got everyone into shape (or shapes) as we experienced the basics of yoga.
Linda T took over as TopicsMaster with a set of retrograde topics.  Donna G told us about retrograde retirement.  Lynn P shared retrograde randomness of Spring break and the story of the little girl who told about her mother with tattoo of grapes “because she loves wine”.  Justin H described learning backwards.  Jan C  reminded us that life is in cycles and about Zumba gold.  And poor Karen W discussed what it was like to do business and conduct interviews while a chef kept bringing her food.
