July 12 Meeting – all about the movies

What was your all-time favorite summer blockbuster movie?

This was the especially engaging theme of the July 12, 2018 meeting hosted by Toastmaster Mark S. We could all remember chillin’ out with a great movie on a long summer day. Chill, by the way, was the Word of the Day.

Table topics were very creative with Toastmasters presenting script ideas, each one building and expanding on the previous idea.

Cynthia P took the Best Table Topics award for her animated delivery of her script idea with scary celery and rubber chicken in outer space! For our prepared speeches,

 

Meredith C told us about her love/hate relationship with her home town of Tyler, Texas and Lynn S encouraged us to stop using environmentally unfriendly plastic straws.

Winners this week:

What happened on June 14, 2018 – Voyagers Toastmasters

The Truth and Nothing But the Truth was the theme on 6/14/18 picked by our Toastmaster, Rene R.

This made for some interesting Table Topics on questions such as, “Is it acceptable to tell white lies to avoid offending people?”

We learned more about Angelique H as she gave her Pathways Icebreaker speech.

Maggy B delivered a speech entitled, The Wonder Women, where we were educated on the tireless efforts of the hard-working women’s group.

Mark I’s speech was emotional and heartfelt as he described the firefighters who granted a young boy’s dying wish.

What did you miss last week?

Our September 28th Meeting was great. Where you there? 17 Voyagers attended.

Maria F. was toastmaster and set the theme of “Weddings.” She shared her recent experience of her son’s destination wedding and described it as a graceful fusion of old traditions with modern twists.

Simon V educated us with his speech, Creating Lasting Behavioral Changes and we learned how important it is for a person to be willing to change and to have an engaged support group around them.

Luke E. shared his wedding day experience and how he chose the wedding venue because it came with the use of a Porsche 911!

Justin S. demonstrated how the speech creation process of an experienced Toastmaster can flow easily and gave us a personal and relevant speech on the Law of Attraction.
