Voyagers Get Involved

Voyagers Toastmasters Club Debates Three State Propositions

Date: November 1 – Time: 7:00 – 8:30 AM
Place: Friendship Hall at University Christian Church, 3900 Cleveland Avenue, San Diego, CA 92103

Voyagers Toastmasters (located in the Hillcrest – Normal Heights area of San Diego) announces a special program targeted to local politics. Helping voters understand the issues, just days before the actual election, Voyagers will be examining three of the most critical state propositions – Prop 6, 8 and 10. Gas Tax, Dialysis Pricing, and Rent Control.

This will be fun as we examine what exactly these propositions are all about and discuss their pros and cons, especially how they affect you.

Free and open to all in the community, this special program will feature some of our club’s top speakers. And since this is a 7 AM meeting we always have free coffee and snacks!

This program is a great introduction to Toastmasters, the international non-profit organization known as the best place for public speaking and leadership training.

Aug 23 Meeting – Green Eggs and Ham via Chandler

Have you ever tried Green Eggs and Ham? Dr Seuss would urge you to try it, advocate that he was for trying new and scary things. The same could be said for Toastmasters, but don’t worry, our Thursday meeting wasn’t scary at all. Just great fellowship and learning.

Our Toastmaster Chandler led us in the theme of Dr. Seuss, which took us back to our childhood and reminded us of characters such as the Cat in the Hat, The Lorax and Horton the Elephant.

Our Grammarian, Maria, presented the word of the day, egregious, which gave us all a healthy opportunity to kvetch a little bit.

Table Topics, led by Tim S, was a festival of Dr Seuss references and teed up questions that kept our dear respondents quick on their feet. Lynn took top prize in Table Topics for her mouthwatering description of the best breakfast other than green eggs and ham.

In the prepared speeches, Rene made us laugh as he recounted all the times in his life he accidentally started fires, Mark S brought us up to speed on how to use your leadership style to be a better coach, and Karen gave us a touching tribute to her mother.

We’re sad to see this meeting end but as Seuss himself said, “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened”. See you next week, Voyagers, enjoy your week, and think and wonder, wonder and think!
