Meeting on November 1, 2014

We had eight members and no guests this day, as Sam Mullis was our Toastmaster. The theme of the day was "Technology Impact." Sam shared some technology (industrial) facts with us. Janice shared a thought and Sharon Semidey stepped in at the last minute to share a joke.

Jerry Weikle took on dual roles of Wordmaster and Ah Bell/Ballot Counter. Sonny Tolbert was timer and Serena Edwards led the Table Topics. The theme was "technology words" and had the following members pick out three words and use all of them PLUS the word of the day, "capricious," in their response.
  • Al Minter: download, unzip, microchip
  • Janice Silver: QWERTY, database, domain
  • Jerry Weikle: megahertz, cybetspace, wavelength
  • Sonny Tolbert: safemode, digital, wireless
  • Sharon Semidey: multimedia, virus, internet
Speakers included Dana Michelle who gave her 6th speech from the CC manual, titled "How Badly Do You Want It?" and Sonny Tolbert who spoke from the advanced manual, Interpersonal Communication, Project #4, titled "The Coach." Al Minter evaluated Dana's speech and Janice (her first evaluation) evaluated Sonny's speech.

Sonny also doubled as General Evaluator and led the evaluation portion of the meeting. Serena Edwards took over as Presiding Officer with the district conference in Greensboro that weekend. Business meeting: Reminder to turn in member interest surveys and announcement of possible new location at Connect Christian Church (will be visiting it next week).
