Sandy Springs Toastmasters December 17, 2020 Meeting Recap and Meetings Roles for January 14, 2021.


Happy Holidays!

Here is the recap of the Thursday December 17, 2020 meeting. And the roles for the January 14, 2021 meeting.    

Attention:  Starting with the new year, Sandy Springs Toastmasters will meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month. 

The first meeting of 2021 will be Thursday, January 14th at 7 am, via ZOOM see link below.


Sandy Springs Toastmasters met on Zoom at 7 am with twelve members and one guest present. Sergeant at Arms, Bud Otto called the meeting to order and led us in the pledge of allegiance, and then turned the meeting over to our president, Una Richards. 

Una welcomed members and guests and reminded us that this year is our club’s the 40th anniversary.   Our planned celebration is delayed this year, and she is hopeful we can celebrate it at a future date.  She then introduced our guest, John Ross, and turned the meeting over to the Toastmaster of the day, Andy Kallenberg.  Andy confirmed the roles for the meeting:

Errington Watkins:  His word of the day was Doyen.  It means the oldest, most respected, or most knowledgeable person in a field. 

·       Una Richards was timer/TV. 

·       Andy then introduced our Table Topics Master, Anastasia Pass. 

·       Anastasia led us in a round of table topics with theme of holiday-related questions that focused on lessons learned or those that put a positive light on dark topic.

·       Errington won best Table Topic answer.

Our first speaker was Morgan Henderson.  Morgan gave his ice breaker speech on how his family influenced his life which led him to his work in media production.

Our second speaker was long time member Jim Owen.  Jim’s speech focused on being safe in different situations such as avoid being in one of the higher floors in hotels, and, did you know that the exit row in an airplane is not necessarily the safest? 

Both speeches were excellent and entertaining, and they tied for best speech.

·       Crystal Reeves gave the evaluation for Morgan’s speech.

·       Apoorva Salimath gave the evaluation for Jim’s speech. 

·       Apoorva wone the award for best evaluator.
