Chuck, our president, opened the meeting at 7:45AM. Chuck always gives us some good “today in history” moments. Thank you Chuck for this little extra bit of information.

This was the final meeting of the Toastmaster 2015-2016 year.

Shawn Terjeson was our Toastmaster – his theme was Propriety, Propriety, Propriety!

Shawn Terjeson led us in the flag salute.

Mykal gave us the Word for the day, “Pride – A feeling that you respect yourself and deserve to be respected by other people.”

Pat was our Timer; Brian our Vote Counter and Josh gave us some great humor.

Chuck was our General Evaluator and Susan was our Grammarian, this was her first time doing this.

Two speeches today, first speech, Miranda Taylor, stepped in to fill a vacated spot and gave us a great speech, second in two weeks. Miranda’s speech “A Solution for Every Problem.” Very well put together speech, the gist of it was don’t be afraid to ask for help, there are always people willing to help.

Dave Warren gave the second speech. Dave’s speech was a manual speech from the CC manual, Project 2 “Organize your speech. The title of his speech was “How to Buy a Home in a Hot, Hot, Hot Market.” Dave gave us five strategies to making an offer on a house.  Nicely done, I think we might hear more from Dave on this subject.

Miranda evaluated Dave’s speech, this was her first evaluation and Jim was evaluator for Miranda’s speech.

The winners today were, speech-Dave; Table Topic-Susan & CC and Clean Slate – Jim.

Shawn will be our TM next week.

Reminder; there will be NO meeting next week, July 1st.

Mykal will fill in for Chuck as president on July 8th.

Meeting adjourned at 8:58 AM.

Our new officers will officially take over on July 1st.

I thank you all for your support this year as your secretary.

I had the reigns over to Josh.

Mykal Amaré, Club Secretary
