(recap from --- 3/24 -- meeting)
Darbie Saunders performed the TM duties for last week's meeting.
Alex Brinkman led a table topics session where each member was put into a precarious situation and had to come up with an excuse. Many funny responses were given by the group. Alan (Magee) won best response by sharing his excuse for not allowing his girlfriend to move in with him because of his roommate Juan.
Scott Israel provided coffee and orange juice for the break.
Two speeches from members entertained the audience. Vanessa Lane shared "the art of giving back" in which we learned how a legacy of giving back in her family has influenced her today through charitable work with Habitat for Humanity and the Special Olympics.
Alan Magee told a humorous story "The Heart of Champion" in which he described how he became the first corporate Honey Bun Eating Champion in record time to win glorious praise and prizes. Alan won for best speech.
Thanks to the evaluators Catherine Lautenbacher and Jim Owen for insightful feedback. Catherine won for best evaluation.
