We only had one speech today. Norman gave us his final speech from the Story Telling Manual.” Project ‘Bringing History to Life’. Title “A True Progressive” about Theodore Roosevelt. This was a very interesting story, I for one, didn’t know half of the information about Teddy.

Chuck was the evaluator for Norman’s speech. Chuck also gave us our Word of the day


Brian was our Table Topics Master, topic was “Super Bowl are you going to watch, if not what will you do?”

Josh was the meeting evaluator. Great job Josh.

It was good to see Mary today; Mary graciously agreed to be our grammarian, thanks Mary.

The winners today are for speech-Norman; table topic-Josh & Dave and clean slate went to Beth.

This was Norman’s last meeting as President due to the fact he has daddy duties. The other officers are taking turns (3 week at a time) Greg will go first, then Josh followed by Chuck and then Mykal.

We are in the middle of our international speech and evaluation contest. The final contest will be on February 26th. The Area contest will be held on TBD.
