September 25 2014: President’s Report

Hello Fellow Toastmasters!

There is never a shortage of people looking to better themselves, thus bettering their situation.

Thursday Sept. 25th marked the first weekly meeting of the 5 week Toastmasters ‘Speechcraft’.

Our goal was to find 5 people for 5 weeks; and thanks to our membership getting the word out, we have 7. (clap it up!)

Lynn and Carol have jumped right in and will give speeches next week while Rick is on the schedule for the following week.

Michelle, Coco, Bernie and Delores round out our Speechcraft participants.  There is still room for one more.  If you know of someone that is on the fence, feel free to encourage them to join us next Thursday, October 2 at 7:30 am for our next meeting.

Aside from our meeting being an amazing example of what a Toastmasters meeting can bring to it’s members,  our three speakers all focused on topics aimed at the new speaker.  Jerry Marino – Fear of speaking to a group, Terry Hewins used a Powerpoint presentation and a handout on how to choose a topic and Jane Diaz gave a VERY FUNNY ‘Icebreaker’ speech as an example for those giving icebreakers next week.

Here is how YOU voted  this week:

  • Best Topics: Bernie Locsin- Wahoo, our new Speechcraft participant!
  • Most Improved: Jane Diaz
  • Best Evaluator: Beth Bateman
  • Best Speaker went to Terry Hewins!

Congratulations and we will see you next Thursday.
