February 4, 2012 Toastmaster Celebration

What a GREAT day to be a Toastmaster! Not only did we have a fantastic meeting - it was topped with an Induction Ceremony, acknowledgement of Goldminers accomplishments, and Amy Beam, our guest walked out the door our newest member! I had to take a nap when I got home.
Jerry Weikle conducted the Induction Ceremony welcoming Rajesh, Karen and Cynthia. Those Toastmaster lessons are really paying off as he was professional, poised and polished ! Welcome new members.
Sonny graciously filled in as Toastmaster as Al basked in the Florida sun. We love you Sonny but we want to be with Al!
Insook gave us a very insightful Thought of the Day while Cynthia humored us with her frog story.
Karen did a great job explaining the timing and Rajesh warned us about our, well, you know, like, um , oh yeah, the Ahs.
Kim filled one of her favorite roles as Grammarian, a position full of listening challenges.

Jessica, full of caffeine today, took our Table Topics to a full blown Morning at the Improv. (Am I the only one who remembers that show?)
Phyllis - Stan the Karate Man & Insook - the Dancing Robot were in the kitchen discussing their plan to clean the yard.

Tony - Earl the Cowboy & Cynthia - Julie the Party Planner were watching tv, on the roof, on the phone, planning a way to hoist Earl's horse up to join them. They must be watching Mr. Ed.

Kim Jackson - Julie the Party Planner & Amy - Stan the Karate Man had cakes to deliver while walking their dogs, in the rain. I'll never h I don't think that I can take, cause it took so long to make it, & I'll never have the recipe again is still stuck in my head!

The speeches haven't begun and I'm already exhausted. Off for a bike ride!

Serena - To Bike or Not to Bike, That is the Question (Don't do it Serena)
Matthew - William Henry McCullough (What a touching tribute)
Shyam - Being Clueless (then do not, I repeat, do not ride a bike with Serena)

Tony evaluated Serena, Jerry evaluated Matthew and Mike evaluated Shyam. Kim is saying, too much redundancy in that sentence Joyce.

Sonny, Jerry, Serena , Sam and Shyam were honored for their their successful completion of major projects. Thanks for remembering Phyllis! You're very kind!

Who won today? Well everyone who came to Goldmine Saturday and participated in the learning and laughter lab. If you don't believe me, ask our General Evaluator, Sir Richard Archer!

Best Table Topics - Tony & Cynthia
Best Speaker - Serena
Best Evaluator - Tony
Ah Stick - Mike

Next week, Rajesh will be our Toastmaster for the 1st time! They grow up so fast!

Now get out there and speak up!

Joyce
