March 25, 2014 Theme: Spring

Lynne was scheduled to be our Toastmaster today and she chose Spring as our theme. However due to illness she was unable to make it.  Jean graciously filled in for her.

We had three very informative speakers today.  Kathy taught us all how to give effective feedback. She used Power Point to list and explain steps to effective evaluations.   Meaningful feedback  reinforces outstanding performance and encourages others to improve.

Elaine was our second speaker. She taught us how to container garden.  She gave us a hands on demonstration aided with Power Point to show us how easy and affordable container gardening is.  Do a little work in May and by July you will have a beautiful carefree garden.

Jean was our third speaker today.  She gave a very interactive presentation on the value of our TM meetings. She had us write down and share why Toastmasters is important to us and how we could tell others about our club.

Alice and Rochelle were our guests today. Last week Roy was our guest and today he was our newest member. Whether you decide to join or not, guests are always welcome. Don't be shy, all members were guests at one point. Be sure and join us next week for our All Fools party.  We will have refreshments and a drawing for a $10 Starbucks card. We hope you will join us.


  1. Sounds like I missed some interesting and informative speeches. Many thanks to Jean for filling in for me as Toastmaster this week.

  2. Thank you for the update

  3. I had a fun time and enjoyed Kathy's talk from the Leadership Excellence series. Being a gardener, I enjoyed learning new tips from Elaine.

    Using the round robin technique helped me know in more detail why members love our club and how we can get the good news out to more people.

    Thanks, Kate, for the excellent job you do in writing our blog.

    Now I'm looking forward to our Open House Party on Tuesday. Everyone's welcome.

  4. We missed you, Lynne. I hear that you tried very hard to get here, and applaud your effort. Get better soon!

  5. Thanks for doing the blog, Kate.
