Toastmaster Loften discussed “News Headlines.” Speaker Heather Goudreau gave a speech designed to “persuade with power” titled “Grandma, move here!”
Table topics master Deb Alber asked each member to select a card from the game “Cadoo” and act out, draw or model with clay a secret word for the audience to guess.
Evaluator Paul Behle provided Goudreau a review of her speech’s strong points, how well it met its stated objectives and suggestions for improvement.
Ah-counter/grammarian Randy Kleinsasser reported on instances of ahs, ums and other speaking and grammatical errors by members during the meeting. General Evaluator Bryan Jones shared his thoughts on the overall quality of the meeting and gave suggestions for overall club improvements. Anita Monek served as timer.
