Today instead of our usual structured meeting we had contests for Best Humorous Speech and Best Table Topics. It was a fantastic event! Jean Tracy, our club founder and current president ran the program.
We have a very talented club so we decided to celebrate along with having the contests. Barb did a wonderful job with decorations. She even made sure everyone had a little trophy. There was tasty food including pasta, sandwiches and yummy cookies. What made the party extra special were our guests and returning members. Maria, Ash and Maureen were guests today. After being away for awhile, members Juliette and Lynne returned.
Jerry and Robert were set to compete in the Humorous Contest, however at the last minute Jerry was called away on business. Robert though was the true winner with his hilarious stories of raising and connecting with his 2 daughters. Robert truly was a laugh a minute with seven funny points in a seven minute talk!
Pierce, Barb and Kate participated in the Table Topics Contest. Each responded to the question:
If you had to attend a costume party tonight who would you dress up as and why?
Kate said she would dress up as the Good Witch from the East because when she did this 21 years ago she met her husband. Pierce said he would dress up as Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean, However Pierce mentioned if he could get out of going to a costume party, he would do so at almost all cost. Barb said she would dress up as Queen Elisabeth the 1st, her favorite historical figure. Barb admires Queen Elisabeth for her power and her love of those she ruled. Barb became royalty herself as she won the Table Topics contest.
