September 11 2014: President’s Report

Last week’s meeting was a good one. The theme was “Looking Forward” and the word of the day was “Tenacious.” A moment of silence was observed in remembrance of those who fell on this day in 2001.

We heard from both Amy Gilstrap and Joji Peters. Amy is working out of the Advanced Communications Manual while Joji, a relative newcomer, is ticking off the speeches out of the Competent Communicator Manual. Both speeches were outstanding and gave the rest of us food for thought.

Jane Flaherty, our Toastmaster demonstrated her prowess at crisply emceeing a meeting. We started and ended on time with a very full schedule.

Here’s how the awards went:

Best Table Topics: Jessica Walton
Most Improved: Amy Gilstrap
Best Evaluator: Donna Gillen
Best Speaker: Joji Peters

Make sure you come Thursday at 7:30 am. Our Toastmaster will be John Shannon. The theme of the meeting will be “Up” – You won’t want to miss it!
