March 11,2014 Theme Ides of March

We had a great meeting today.  Barb was our Toastmaster today.  She chose Ides of March as the theme.  She explained the history of the Roman calendar date.   Barb talked about the significance of the date in 44 B.C. when Julius Caesar was assassinated. 

Linda was our first speaker today.  She told us all about Chinese Ping Pong.  Ping Pong is the most popular sport to play and watch in China. It has become a part of Chinese culture.  The Chinese created a systematic way of teaching so it becomes intuitive.

Kate was our second speaker today.  She taught us how to be a DANG good advocate.  Kate used examples from her vacation to show us the skills: Document Accountability Names Gratitude.  Whether we need to help ourselves or loved ones we just need to remember to be a DANG good advocate. 

Our meeting was made extra special today because three guests joined us.  Barb’s sister Jean came from Olympia today.  Pauline and Cindy also joined us.  Each guest and their host will have their name put a drawing for a $10 Starbucks card.  Drawing will be held April 1st.  We hope you will be joining us soon.  Guests are always welcome.
