Sandy Springs Toastmasters November 19, 2020 Meeting Recap and Meetings Roles for December 3, 2020

Currently, all meetings are held virtually via ZOOM.

Zoom Link:    

Sandy Springs Toastmasters met on Zoom at 7 a.m. Next meeting November 19th, 2020.

 Bud Otto, Sergeant at Arms and Toastmaster of the day, opened the meeting and led us in the pledge of allegiance. 

There were 11 members and one guest present. Our newest member is Morgan Henderson.  Welcome, Morgan!  We also had one guest, Kwasi Crawford.

Una Richards, President, introduced Katherine Vega, our Toastmasters District 44 director.  Katherine spoke briefly about our district, updating us on what was happening, and invited our club members to watch their speech contest on Zoom.

 Bud then called on Anastasia Pass to give us the word of the day.  She gave us Solipsism-the view or theory that only one’s mind is sure to exist. 

 Apoorva Salimath volunteered as Timer/Vote Counter.  Jim Owen was ah/ counter-grammarian.

 Una led us in Table Topics – with “Tough Questions” such as what would you do if you were dictator of a small country, and “give an example of weird things that are socially acceptable”.

Crystal Reeves won best table topics.

 Riquet Caballero gave a thought-provoking speech on “Why you Should be a Stoic”, (a person who can endure pain or hardship without showing their feelings or complaining).

At members’ request, he has offered to send out a copy of his speech and will follow up with a second speech on this topic at a later date. 

Sam Gadebusch gave the evaluation of Riquet’s speech.

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned.
