Ronnie Cole performed the TM duties for Thursday's meeting.

Arti (Patel), as Table Topics Master, supplied each person with an 'unusual' place to imagine as 'home' and asked for declarations of its greatness.
Crystal (Reeves) won best Table Topics Answer when she convince herself, and us, that living in Death Valley was an artist's dream come true(!).

We were treated to three speeches, Thursday. Vanessa (Lane) - 'Servant Leadership'. Kirk (Livingood) - 'If everyone had a Phd, who would pick up the ...?'. Anastasia (Sears) - 'Holy Moment'.
Only one could take the prize though, and Kirk's surprise twist won him the Best Speech Award.

Our evaluators Steve (Bragg), Jan (van Rensburg), and Raj (Kosaraju) each brought out highlights and suggestions for enhancing already well crafted speehes.
Steve took Best Evaluation Award.
