Toastmaster Judy’s meeting doubled as a food drive, in celebration with the Thanksgiving spirit.   Judy ran the meeting in such a way that everyone was required to speak about what they are grateful for.  Thank you Maureen for the organizing the food drive, a brilliant idea that we should continue as a yearly tradition.

Both speakers did an excellent performance of  “Persuading with Power” Lucy about the contributions of immigrants, Connie’s about the contributions and benefits of toastmasters.  Laura and Chris accomplished the difficult task of evaluating these two speeches with helpful detailed observations and pointers.

Building on the theme, Table topics master Maureen’s word of the day was “Grateful”, Chris took the prize with his gratefulness on being an American.
