At the peak of summer we distract ourselves with a variety of indoor and outdoor activities, and our Toastmasters meetings are no exception!
Our theme for the week was "Summer Recreation" and Tatiana Makhinova made her debut as Toastmaster of the Day! Our Word of the Day was "rejuventate".
We had not one, not two, but three prepared speeches today. Our new member Jason Yan gave his Icebreaker speech. Jordi Calveras delivered his 3rd speech from "The Professional Speaker" Advanced Communicator manual, in which he persuaded a hypothetical audience of a faculty committee to hire him as an assistant professor. Tom Vamvanij gave his 10th speech from the Competent Communicator manual, inspiring us to reject the false hope offered by the iPhone.
Congratulations to Tom for becoming out latest Competent Communicator!
Our Table TopicsMaster, Justin Hall, asked us how we like to entertain ourselves in the summertime.
The General Evaluator was Andrew Engel, Speech Evaluators were Mick Normington, Maryam Ali, and Kalen Braman respectively. Supporting roles were played by Eamon O'Dea (Grammarian), Justin Hall (Ah counter), Giacomo Ravo (Time Keeper) and Jason Yan (Vote Counter).
After the meeting we brainstormed meeting ideas for the next two months, and then had our monthly dinner at Coco's Cafe.
Join us next week!
