December 17, 2013 Theme: Winter

Lynne was our Toastmaster today. She chose "Winter" as the theme. She encouraged us to share our favorite aspects of Winter. Lynne also shared many quotes about winter. Some were profound and others were humorous. My favorite quote was: "To shorten Winter, borrow money due in Spring."

Kate was our first speaker today.
She completed project 9 in the CC manual. The title of her presentation was: Recycle A Way to Life. Kate encouraged us to donate blood, bone marrow and our organs. She explained how to do it and the benefits of blood, tissue and organ donation. Kate noted that when we recycle paper we save a tree. When we recycle ourselves we save lives.

Linda was our second speaker. She completed project 2 in the CC manual. The title of her talk was: Shen Yun Performing Arts. Linda explained the costumes, dance and music of Shen Yun. She also discussed the technical skill, form and bearing involved. Linda’s passion for Shen Yun was very evident in her beautiful presentation.

Our meeting was made extra special today because Karen’s daughter Judy joined us. Guests are always welcome and encouraged to attend. We hope you will join us. Please note that our next meeting will be January 7th. Happy Holidays!


  1. Thanks for the update!

  2. What a delightful meeting! Our next meeting will be next year, January 7, 2014.

    I'm always amazed how fast our speakers' skills grow. Both Kate and Linda are showing excellent progress.

    As toastmaster for the meeting, Lynne knows how to grab our attention and leave us with inspirational thoughts.

  3. It was a fun meeting. Kate gave us a new and very worthwhile way to think about recycling and Linda shared the beauty and skill of traditional Chinese dancing. Karen's table topics got us all in the holiday spirit.

  4. It was so great to be back after my break! Our club is absolutely wonderful and I have missed it! Everyone did such a great job! I'm looking forward to 2014!! ~Elaine~
