August 15, 2017 Meeting: Four Great Speeches & Evaluations

Written August 16th, 2017
Categories: Uncategorized

Our August 15, 2017 meeting featured four very interesting speeches on very different topics:

  • Victoria: “Christmas in December, or Maybe Not”
  • Julie: “Banking Hours, Not Dollars”
  • Mark: “The Fate of the Tonquin
  • Laura: “Danger! Hot Exhaust – My Experience with Gaslighting”.

Mark won Best Speech, Julie won Most Improved, and Franni won Best Evaluation. With so many speeches and evaluations, we skipped Table Topics and went right to Announcements. Our VP Education, Emily, will be reaching out to all members to find out what everyone’s goals are, so we can ensure that our meetings provide the opportunities you need – so when you get the email survey, be sure to respond! Our Area Director, Brig, also said a few words of encouragement.

Our next meeting will be August 29, 2017 and feature our Fall Contests: Humorous Speech and Table Topics. Winners will go on to the October 2 Area Contest – all are invited!
