News from the Goldmine, May 15, 2010

It was a great day at Goldmine Toastmasters, and not just because we got to sing "Happy Birthday" to Jay Nodine!

Toastmaster Sam Mullis and Presiding Officer Kim Jackson led us through 90 minutes of laughter and learning. Alex Porter presented an inspiring thought of the day, while Betty Walker may have involved up to a third of our members in her joke! Wordmaster Phyllis Kombol was on the lookout for "utopia," as well as clever phrases, of which she spotted a few. Table Topics Master (and Birthday Boy) Jay Nodine called on Alex, Phyllis, Jerry and Betty and each enlightened us on a variety of topics.

In the prepared speech portion of our program, Raj Sharma (and the Tortoise and the Hare) inspired us to greater teamwork, while Joyce Kalinowski-Przybyszewski-Preston entertained and informed us about her "Big Fat Polish Wedding." Fred Biggers and Kim Jackson evaluated Raj and Joyce, providing both kudos and recommendations.

Master Evaluator, Lee Johnston, provided an overview assessment of the day's meeting before Ballot Counter, Jerry Weikle, presented Best Table Topics Award to Betty Walker; Best Speaker to Raj Sharma, Best Evaluator to Kim Jackson and the coveted Ah Stick to Fred Biggers.

Betty Walker will serve as Toastmaster for our next meeting, May 22. Be sure to confirm your role with her in a timely manner this week!
