Just a story about a boy with his head in the clouds who went on an epic sky-diving adventure to win his dream girl - that's how Marshall Major earned today's Table Topics award.
And yes, he got the girl.
Well done on both accounts, Marshall! 🙌 ⭐️ ✨
The Eclectic gang shared a LOT of laughs today, telling tales about "Adventure Land" and what that might look like to each of us.
Brains were stretched by new ideas and perspectives on the topic AND the audio & visual components were extra clear for those of us online thanks to the IT work of the magical Marshall Major. 💪
Before we get too deep into January, we must acknowledge our current President and her December Birthday.
Cheers, Nancy Denniston! Happy (very) belated to you! 🥳
Another year has come to a close with thoughtful sharing of the annual year-in-review question: "What has become clear to you in 2022?"
Answers are always profound, heartfelt, and inspiring!
Meetings are adjourned for the holidays. See everyone in 2023!
Great meeting today with TWO fantastic speakers.
We heard a speech on inter-generational trauma from long-term member Megan Strawsine Carney and a "get-to-know-me" speech from brand-new member Lauren!
Well done, ladies!

We are trying new places to meet and keeping ourselves warm this winter with laughter, good cheer, and the company of our eclectic friends. 🥰
We had a full meeting last week with an extended round of table topics.

Lumuli took home the table topics award. 🤩
It's a Table Topics trifecta for Lana!
Go, Lana! 🥳
Congratulations to Beth Williams!!!
I took over as Area Director of F2 mid Toastmaster year (July-June) December 2020. I continued to serve Area F2 into the following Toastmasters year, ending in June 2022.
Being an Area Director made me a better President to my club and a better communicator. It was a beautiful experience.
Thank you to the members of F2. ❤️❤️❤️
Today's meeting was thoughtful, engaging, inspiring, and interactive with a great turnout that included guests both online and in person.
How Awesome! 🥳

Last week's happy hour was not merely happy, it was absolutely hilarious!
This group has so much fun together. 🥰
We had a tie last week for our table topics round.
Congrats to Jeff & Jake!

We were thrilled to welcome two new in-person guests - Jake and Christopher - who will soon become new members! Woot, woot!
Last but not least, Stephanie Mullani won the table topics round for her ideas about remaining open-minded and receptive when changes are taking place in our lives.
Last week's meeting was one of those rare ones where the stars aligned the speeches and table topics merged into a magical hour best summarized as:
Love each other.
Look out for your fellow human beings.
Help each other.
Be the one who restores someone else's faith in humanity.
Bravo to Alina for sharing her Ice Breaker speech with us about being helped by strangers when she emigrated from Russia. We needed tissues for that one.
And kudos to Beth for delivering her- 6th(?) Ice Breaker on escaping an abusive situation with a little help from a human angel of her own.
I can't vouch for all humans, but as for the humans in Eclectic Voices, well... They're pretty awesome!
Lumuli and Andy were among our most recent table topics winners. Great job, guys!! 🥳 🤩 🥳
