Kirk Livingood performed the TM duties for Thursday's meeting.
The Table Topics session by Crystal Reeves took everyone "into the kitchen" as we discussed various topics in the culinary world. We heard about late night snacking, cooking utensils, horrific recipe mistakes and how to cook with children... Mark Hageli won for the best response of the day on how gun powder and C4 can add that flavor kick to any recipe.
After the snack break provided by Rion Rizzo, speeches from two members shared two different personal stories each with a purposeful message. Duane Humphrey inspired the audience again with a story "Mercy, No Weakness" and made us all think about our actions towards others Ronnie Cole shared a descriptive story about an eventful ride he gave as an UBER X driver and reminded us to following our first instincts. Ronnie Cole won the best speech award of the day.
