Sandy Springs Toastmasters 11/29/18 meeting recap and 12/06/18 meeting roles

Hello, Sandy Springs Toastmasters!

Sandy Springs Toastmasters 11/29/18 Meeting Recap
Bud Otto, our Sergeant At Arms, called the meeting to order with the pledge of allegiance. We had 10 members and 1 guest in attendance.

Paige Kerr, the president of the club and Toastmaster of the day, gave opening remarks and welcomed our guest Siba who relocated to Atlanta from Boston. Siba came to visit our Toastmasters club because he wants to improve his public speaking skills.  

Etsehiwot Ezra gave the word of the day. Thanksgiver- A person who gives thanks.

Paige then called on the Table Topics Master of the day, Sharon Reid, to lead the Table Topics portion of the meeting. Sharon’s Theme for the day was “Christmas”. She had prepared a great set of questions such as “Convince us that an artificial Christmas tree is better and easier to decorate than the real Christmas tree” and “What is your favorite Christmas activity?” Mitch Reiner, back from his long hiatus from Toastmasters, won Best Table Topics Answer. Welcome back, Mitch!

The group took a brief coffee break then reconvened. We had two speakers for the day, Crystal Reeves and Mitch Reiner. Crystal gave a speech titled “The Worst Journey in the World” from project #5 of her Advanced StoryTelling Manual. Jeanne McDaniel gave an astute evaluation of Crystal’s speech. Mitch gave a very well put together pocket speech titled “Having a North Star. Knowing where you’re going. A vision. A mission.” Etsehiwot Ezra gave an insightful evaluation of Mitch’s speech.

Crystal won Best Speaker and Jeanne won Best Evaluator.
