Saturday, June 1, 2013

Phyllis Kombol, our presiding officer, called the meeting to order, welcomed our guests and introduced Jessica who shared the Thought, “Time is the most precious thing I’ve found” which was inspired by a Facebook post.  Thereafter Jessica led the Pledge of Allegiance and introduced Sharon Davis, our Toastmaster for the Day. 

Sharon called on Serena who filled the Jokemaster and Timekeeper roles. Cynthia, in her role as Grammarian, relayed the word of the day, “usurp” and Sam explained the Ah Bell & Ballot Counter role.  Sharon invited Mike Hall to the lectern to lead the impromptu speaking portion of our meeting.  Following a brief intro, Mike introduced the Table Topics theme, “Fortunes.”

Table Topic
“A leader is powerful to the degree that he empowers others.”
To the extent that a leader extends power to those who report to him, he develops other leaders.
“Hard work without talent is a shame but talent without hard work is a tragedy.”
I disagree with the statement.  Hard work is always beneficial because it leads to a sense of accomplishment.
“Life is like a flower of which love is the honey.”
Love is what makes life sweet and I personally experienced it as a child from my parents and relish it in relationship with my spouse and children.

 Sharon then introduced the following individuals who delivered prepared speeches:
·         Dale       “The Danger of Arrogance”  (Advanced Communicator Manual, Project #2)
