The second Mansion Toastmasters meeting of the year on September 17th was even better than the first! With ten guests and 15 members it was another packed house! With a meeting of that size it takes a practiced hand to keep everything moving along; fortunately we had the highly experienced Paul V. as our Meeting Chair last night, so everything went smoothly. Marianne M. led another fun and challenging Table Topics session, and after the break we had two fantastic speeches – “David and Goliath” by Gary F. and “Judging vs. Evaluating” by Shelley O. Congratulations to Gary F. and Tom T. for co-winning the award for Best Table Topics, Marla A. for winning Best Evaluator, and Shelley O. for grabbing the Best Speech award.
Congratulations also to the five guests who chose to become members last night – you’re on your way to becoming competent, confident leaders and communicators!
We’re looking forward to seeing all our members, new and old, at our next meeting on September 24th at Paletta Mansion, when we will be holding our annual Club Table Topics and Humourous Speech contests! Guests, this is your opportunity to see Mansion’s best compete to go on to the next level – the Area 36 contests – which will be held October 8th at Paletta Mansion.
