Toastmasters 9/24/20 Recap

Sergeant at Arms, Bud Otto, opened the meeting with the pledge of allegiance, and then turned the meeting over to our president, Una Richards. 

Una updated us on upcoming Toastmasters events (see list below) and then introduced our Toastmaster of the day, Jim Owen.


Nine members were present, and one visitor, Foluso Akerele. 

 Anastasia gave us the word of the day -  Festinate – which means to hurry or make faster. 


Jim then introduced our first speaker Sam Gadebusch.  


Sam gave his 5 to 7-minute speech on Core Values, explaining the values he learned at his school, Penn State.  

·       To have a positive attitude

·       Develop a great work ethic

·       Compete in everything you do

·       Be willing to make sacrifices


Andy Kallenberg then presented his speech, a 20-25-minute speech at Level 4 in Pathways.

His speech and Power Point presentation focused on racial injustice, and included time for discussion with other members. 

This presentation will be given to a work group, and Andy he presented to Toastmasters to solicit feedback from the members

before making his presentation.


Una gave an insightful evaluation, and several members added additional comments.
