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.
