The meeting was full one, the final of our club contest.

Greg Phillips, who is temporary president called the meeting to order at 7:45 AM.

Beth Dewey gave us our inspiration and flag salute.

Brian Kostecki was our Toastmaster for the day. Brian is one of our most enthusiastic Toastmasters.

Two of the speeches were part of the contest and one was not.

Jim Guenther gave us the tale of the sun coming out and getting that itching feeling to get out and “be” in the garden. The name of his speech was “Bees.” I loved the idea of being in harmony with nature.

Second speech was not a part of the contest but it was a great speech. It was project 3 in the CC Manual, titled “Visionary Leadership.” Love the idea of building his kids a natural “fort.”

Henry gave us our third speech; it was a manual speech, project 4 in the CC Manual, titled “Trust to do the Amazing.” Henry was the other speaker in the contest. Speech focused on trust. Trust is a great speech topic.

Mykal lead the Table Topics, I found this very interesting.

Henry gave us our humor.

Mimi had her hands full by being our timer and vote counter.

Thank you Beth for leading the Earlybirds in our International Speech and Evaluation Contest.
