Tammy reminded us of the joy of crafting and told us about some of the older crafts that are making a resurgence today. Linda taught us how to make a tall tales speech, and then included one in her speech - a speech within a speech! A fun time was had by all present. We would love to have you join us!

Today we had a fun meeting with the theme of FEAR NOT, chosen by our Toastmaster Bill. This was Bill's first time as Toastmaster in this club. Well done, Bill! Grammarian Linda chose TIMOROUS for the word of the day, and all Table Topics (led by Debbie) were about phobias. Cody gave an excellent speech about communication styles. It's always a pleasure to have meetings that are coordinated, educational and worthwhile.

CHANGING YOUR HABITS was the theme of the June 16th meeting, led by Debbie. Mary gave us a lot of food for thought with her speech about using SMART (usually used for setting goals) for coaching people. I love it when a speech gives me a lot of take-home value, and things to think about for a long time. Well done, Mary! Everyone got to participate in table topics. HABITUAL was the word of the day, and many people managed to weave it into their speeches. Worthwhile meeting!

Tim led a fun array of telephone-related Table Topics.

The March 3rd meeting was especially fun, with a theme of Dr. Seuss. Linda was toastmaster, and Cody created Table Topics to go with the theme. The highlight of the meeting was Mary's speech. She gave each of us a verbal hug, telling us what she admires about each of us, and how we have inspired her. We all left the meeting feeling warm and happy.

Some people wonder whether Toastmasters clubs are for making toasts or making toast. The February 17th meeting dealt with toast of both varieties. Tammy led the meeting, and she had lots of interesting information about toast (bread). The highlight of the meeting was a speech by Morgan about the fear of going to the dentist - we can all identify with this! Linda led Table Topics, and speakers got to choose whether to address a question about toast (with bread) or toasts (with a beverage). Debbie, our speech evaluator, added value to the meeting with her analysis of Morgan's speech. It was a valuable, fun meeting.
