President- Chuck Furumori, CL

Vice President Education-Shari Kauffman

Vice President Membership-Janet Dowd

Vice President PR-Patricia Buchanan

Secretary-Josh Huisenga

Treasurer-Mimi Stewart

Sergeant At Arms-Brian Kostecki

Shawn Terjeson made a motion that we accept this slate of officers, Mykal Amaré second the motion. The motion was voted on and passed unanimously. Welcome and congratulations to the new officers.

Mykal Amaré was our Toastmaster – the theme was “Graduation.”

Greg Phillips gave us some great inspiration and led us in the flag salute.

Chuck gave us the Word for the day, but for some reason I didn’t write it down.

Dave Warren gave us some humor. Josh was our Timer; Pat our Vote Counter.

Shawn was our General Evaluator and Jeremy our Grammarian.

Three great speeches today; all were manual speeches. Rian gave his Ice Breaker, “All About Me.” Rian gave us an insight into who Rian is, great humor, and the knowledge of what hat fits and which one doesn’t.

In her speech “Demystify this tool” Janet gave us a wonderful presentation on the different types of microphones and how to use there. This proved to be very insightful and proof that there is a speech in everything. Thank you Janet.

Our third speaker was Shari with her speech on “I Found It.” To me this was a power speech on discovering oneself. Shari really stepped outside of the box and demonstrated the use of her voice by playing the Ukulele.”  

Brian was our Table Topic Master, topic- “Where would you like to go on summer vacation.”

The winners today were, speech-Janet; Table Topic-Susan (our guest) and Clean Slate – Dave.

Janet will be our TM next week.

Meeting adjourned at 9:03 AM.
