Hi Fellow Toastmasters,

We had a small and abbreviated meeting today, due to the United Way Auction at the Steelcase Town Hall.

Michelle served as Toastmaster today. Heather was our Timer.

Susanne presented a speech today called A red fire of a long winter’s evening… This was a special occasion speech – Accepting an Award. Susan was presented with her CC and CL certificates today! Susanne was very thankful and appreciative to Toastmasters for her growth. Sean was the evaluator of her speech

Kelson gave his second speech in his Competent Communicator manual today, Organize your Thoughts. His speech was Thanksgiving, a time for Thankful Giving. He pointed out we have Thanksgiving on Thursday, Black Friday on Friday, plus Cyber Monday. He suggested we should all recognize a #Giving Tuesday where we share of our good fortune every year. Susanne was Kelson’s evaluator

Table Topics was omitted this meeting , so no one won “Best Speaker” this meeting. L

A member biography sheet was presented to the members and they were asked to fill them out so we may start doing proper introductions of the speaker before their speeches.

Sean urged us to fill out our goals and accomplishments the CC and CL tracking sheets. You can fill them out yourself by using the below links.
